What Did You Do Frugal Today~October 2010

For encouragement in frugal ways--large and small--look no further. This is where we share helpful hints for stretching our money, saving time and making sure we don't waste resources.

Remember, "frugal" does not mean "don't spend money!" It means "be wise with what you spend!"

What did YOU do frugal today?

Good Tuesday Morning Everyone

So far today, I'm clipping out coupons to send to the coupon club. Have made up 5 Buttered Maple Syrup candles to take to Logan this coming weekend. I'll be making up Pumpkin Pie candles here in a bit. I didn't realize till we were down there that my candle shelf was so bare.

I also have to call in and pick up a antibiotic for Windi, she has another ear infection. Sigh! She was on antibiotics for this for over a month, one week off and a new infection. Poor baby, she was shaking her head at about 1:30am this morning, I had to get up and get her ear drops, clean out her ear, fight with her over putting the drops in (she doesn't like it) and got her a baby aspirin. I should have suspected something yesterday as she stayed in the bedroom all day. I also have to go to the Vet to pick up her potassium bromide. Cocoa has the runs this morning, so I may have to take her to the Vet sooner than planned she was scheduled for next Friday.

My sister called me yesterday to find out what thrift stores I go to, to get kids jeans for my purses. They went to Goodwill and Volunteers of America and were able to get 10 pairs of jeans, one pair was brand new with the tags still on them ($4.99 for that pair) for a total of $30.00. They were thrilled at the savings.

Good Morning everyone.


It's cold here this morning, 47 but I love the fall.
We are getting some more work done in the house. Our friend is still looking for work so he's got the time to do DH's honey dos. Yesterday he replaced the kitchen faucet and the instant hot water spout. Dh doesn't like to do those things, ha ha.

I have piles of coupons to go through today. Haven't even read Sunday's paper yet.

We're a little warmer here in the mid 50's, still chilly though. I've dragged out my favorite couch blankie.

Still clipping coupons and watching Cocoa. The other girls are in the bedroom, I turned on the radio.. Cocoa is funny. She went over to investigate, I could see the look of puzzlement on her face, she tried looking behind the radio to see where the humans were LOL! Last week she was barking at her shadow on the bathroom wall.

Where is everybody this morning?

Good October morning everyone:

I have a dental appt. this morning, ugh. I have three teeth to be filled, so I am not looking forward to that.

My ensuite bathroom is about 6 steps away from my bed, and when I get up in the night, I don't turn on lights. I wiped out in there in the middle of the night last night, and hit my leg against the counters' sharp corner. In the midst of this I must have knocked the toilet paper roll thingie into the toilet !! Without knowing this, this morning I went to change the roll and couldn't find the roller, and you' guessed it, it went down the toilet. Dh is annoyed with me, because he thinks I don't look after myself well enough, and there is always a consequence. So now the toilet is plugged, I have a bruise and my ego isn't all that great either.

Really cool morning right now, and I must go, and get ready for my appt., Will pop in later.

Joanne.So sorry about your accident in the middle of the night.Hoping you will be ok after going to the dentist but no one likes going but it is the price we pay to take care of ourselves.
Anna,So sorry that Windi is sick and Coca sounds like she is alot of fun too.The candles sound very nice too,!
Laurie.It is cool to start off with but going to get up to about 73 later on.
Frugal for me?I decided to stay home and work on my class. My dog is pretty happy about that decision.I am going to try and get some stuff done while the kids are in school too.

Joanne, you know the saying "some days you're the windshield, somedays you're the bug"? You've just had one of those days last night! Hope today finds you better.
Frugal-bought an oil mister last night at Bed, Bath & Beyond with my 20% discount. Canned spray is pretty expensive and I figure this will pay for itself quickly. I use the butter flavor spray on my popcorn and saw online to add butter flavoring to regular oil.

For some reason OSHA doesn't mandate here. Yes they will hire. It took almost two years to get dh and this guy hired. No one wants to move to a smaller town. It doesn't help that the wages are wonderful and a few of the promised things disappeared. Don't get me wrong, this is a much better job than he had before!! The city needs to stand behind what they offer. The average age of a lineman across the country is 60. Scary. The kids getting out of school want higher wages. The companies refuse to pay the high wages so the younger generations are getting different jobs. Also a lot of young kids going to college to become lineman choose the field because they don't want to take a lot of the college math, science and business classes. that group also tends to be a party crowd. There is a shortage of linemen.

Frugal for me this week is getting ready for the health fair on friday. Instead of buying a tablecloth I am using a dark green sheet. My Vistaprint order came yesterday. Now I need to print newsletters. I think the paper part will be done.
