President’s Choice World Elite MasterCard Is Helping Us Get Loads Of Free Groceries: The Grocery Game Challenge #1 Oct 5-11,2015


WE LOVE FREE GROCERIES   President’s Choice (PC) Financial has done it again bringing customers the No Annual Fee President’s Choice Financial World Elite MasterCard to the table.

You can actually take that expense of $247.97 and double it and $495.94 would have been what we would have spent if not for the sales. Our gas was up slightly this month, not over budget but we spent more because we had to travel for the holidays. We also paid a bit more on the mortgage this month to make it an even $154,000 that is left to pay. Yes we have had the cash to pay that in full since last month.
