This might be even better.
Do you have xfinity at home. If so you can get on their cell phone plan $12 per gb of data and your first 200 mb are free. All your calls are free and you are on the Verizon network. My bill with tax is usually 12 bucks plus taxes for a total of 14 bucks a month.
the last two months my bills have Been 2 bucks, just the taxes.

No US currency is left on the ground in my word. I've visited the Mint in Philadelphia. A lot of work goes into producing those bills and coins. They're miniature works of art.

.. I refuse to buy toilet bowl cleaner at the store. We have furniture polish and a bunch of other items that otherwise would be sitting around unused. I'm using them instead.

I scan the ground for stuff.

Just found a bunch of sockets laying on the ground, quite a few were sizes that I did not have!

You'd only be invited if she knew that you were going to bring food and cleaning supplies--and planned to clean while you were there.
