I can't believe my luck!

I received a notification from the social office last week. It was something about me receiving 900 euros of income support.
I couldn't believe my luck, and I also couldn't believe if it was true, if I had misread the letter, but if it's true, I have some severe shopping to do.
Believe me, I am not going to spend it on coffee and chocolate and clothes and jewellery.
I have already made a list of things I need to buy:

🌟 8 pairs of Nanso nightshirts, and 8 pairs of Happy Socks ankle socks, and 4 brassieres
⭐️ Two containers of each detergent; laundry detergent, dish- washing detergent, universal cleaning spray, toilet cleaner, and air freshener
🍦 A roll of biodegradable trash bags and another of plastic trash bags, a toilet brush and 5 boxes of Kleenexes
🌸 4 pump- action bottles of hand wash, 2 bottles of mouthwash, two tubes of toothpaste, 6 roll- on deodorants, 6 lip balms, 2 bottles of face wash, 2 jars of face cream
🐷 4 boxes of panty- liners, 5 packets of interdental brushes
🦄 100 first- class postage stamps, 4 rolls of Scotch tape, and 2 Frixion ink pens of each color
🍋 A pillar fan and a tabletop fan (the pillar fan is for my apartment, and the tabletop one for my bathroom. My apartment doesn't have air conditioning), three plastic storage boxes, 4 extension cords, and four scrubbing sponges
🍁 3 pink- and- purple striped bath towels (for my own personal use, I will buy the ones for my overnight visitors later)
🌷 A new blanket and a new pillow (my old ones are getting lumpy and yellowish- brown)
🍇 A prepaid internet connection (my own Internet connection was cut off, like I mentioned earlier)
🌞 4 prepaid movie tickets (there are so many amazing movies in theaters right now, like War for the Planet of the Apes, Wonder Woman, and Spider- Man: Homecoming.

I really do hope I will receive the money, because I desperately need those aforementioned products. It's very rare that I receive such amount of money. 

My plans for Monday, July 31st - Sunday, August 6th

Monday, July 31st:
I will go to Pearl House, and then to Amos Anderson art museum.
I will do housework, and mail two greeting cards.

Tuesday, August 1st:
I will receive the weekly allowance from the social office. I am not sure if I will receive the hefty amount of money I was promised from the social security institution.
I will go visit my parents to pick up the weekly allowance. After that, I will go to the bank to withdraw the rest of the money.
Whether or not if I have received the income support, I need to pick up my mended clothes from the dressmaker's, recharge my travel card, and buy the basic food items like bread and milk.
If I have received more money, I will buy food, hygiene products, underwear, ink pens, postage stamps, a blanket and pillow, prepaid internet connection, movie tickets, and two fans.

Wednesday, August 2nd:
I will go to the gym.

Thursday, August 3rd:
Nothing special yet.

Friday, August 4th:
I will start doing the weekly housework; replace the towels and take the sheets off my bed and wash them; put my blanket, pillow, and mattress to the balcony; take out the trash; hoover the floor, and scrub the toilet bowl.
My HoivaOnni worker will come for the weekly appointment at half past three o'clock in the afternoon. During the visit, I will wash the dishes and iron the laundry.
I will go visit my parents, and then I will go to the National museum.

Saturday, August 5th:
I will go to the gym, and visit an art museum.

Sunday, August 6th:
I will go visit my parents.
