- My hospital unit was over staffed today, which meant I was placed on call. Because I had to be ready to come in at a moment’s notice, I chose to hunker down at home and get some writing done. So essentially I went nowhere which is about as frugal as it gets. Good thing too, as I missed out on a day’s wages.
- I was able to submit a completed article to the Clark Howard website. That’ll help make up for a small amount of the lost income.
- My husband drove to Costco for gasoline, cat food, dog food and coffee. While he was gone the mail was delivered, which included a $54 Costco rebate that could have paid for most of the trip. I went ahead and stapled the receipt to the rebate and will take it to Costo’s customer service and see if they can retroactively apply it to the purchase.
- I was able to put together a dinner using home cooked pinto beans and leftover rice. Yes, you guessed it . . . burrito night! (I also packed an extra one for today’s work lunch, which has magically transformed into tomorrow’s work lunch!)
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
