2 ways I spent $4 today:

I just bought my first 2 scratch tickets Saturday.  It was only $2 a ticket called Lucky 7s.  If you get a 7 then you get the prize show, 2 lucky 7s then you get double the prize show.  I scratched all 20 squares (10 per ticket) and won nothing. $4 bucks down the drain.  Hey, it's my birthday weekend so I'm going a little wild.  Figured it was my time to get lucky!  LOL

My neighbor is a caretaker for a very, very wealthy woman.  Her employer often buys $200 pants and then decides to get rid of them.  Sometimes the lady just cleans out her home, one of many, and I offer a few bucks on the toiletries, but only what's in unopened packages.  So my neighbor had another "garage" sale and boy do I wish I could have squeezed into those silk pants.  Anyway, I bought a gorgeous cotton top for $1 and a 20" Holmes box fan (brand new) for $2.  I had another dollar left and got a GE 2 line phone (for 50 cents) and a set of 4 wine glasses.

So which is the better deal?  LOL

    Glad you ended up with an EXCELLENT bargain on your b-day weekend justxploring!

    I don't know how I feel about the scratch-offs.  I appear to be the queen of winning free tickets in GA.  But not much else.  All the other money spent on scratch-offs has gone down the drain just like you said.  I'm still a little hopeful when a new ticket comes out, but I haven't done well with them at all this year.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend birthday girl!Party

    Happily embracing my abundance daily! Big Smile

      JXP- Obviously, for you the better deal was the items you picked up at the garage sale .

      Good deal indeed !

       

      Myself, I like instant games. In fact, I just hit on a $10 ticket Friday for $100 and a $20 ticket for $200 yesterday...

        I'm glad somebody's hitting DD.  I guess I need to jump in and try the more expensive tickets.  The $3 and $5 haven't done much for me!

          I guess I haven't the patience for the smaller tickets.

          I  like the quick win or the quick kill....

          Good luck, ToJo76* !!!

            Mrs Coin Toss plays scratchers.....she sure hits more often than I do on Little Lotto.....nothing spectacular, $200 one time on a $2 ticket though.

            I always figured scratchers for are for people that want to know right now, not wait for a drawing, but some people have said that's what they play because the occassionally "get a bone" more often than with number games.

            Several clerks have said always buy more than one of any given ticket.  

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
