- I had a mostly low key weekend, as I worked at the hospital on Saturday and then just puttered around the house on Sunday. I did run a quick errand yesterday, but it was just to The Grocery Outlet and Fred Meyer to pick up food staples. Of course I brought my own food to work and drank the free coffee and tea.
- The house was a chilly 60° degrees when I got up this morning, (that’s 15.5° C for non-Americans) so you can understand that I was tempted to turn on the furnace. However, I chose instead to grab my warmest socks, an extra layer and a throw blanket since I was going to be sitting still in front of the computer. Add in a mug of Red Rose tea, and I’m a cozy as a bug in a rug. No reason to heat an entire 2000 square-foot house when I can simply heat myself.
- My husband and I drove down to see our younger son at college on Friday. It was a bit of a schlep as the two-hour drive expanded into four due to accidents and rush hour, but we were in no hurry. Our son needed a few extra things from home and we figured it would cost less to drive in our Prius than to mail everything. We took him out for dinner and got to hear about his classes and new friends. Well worth the cost of dinner.
- My husband had earned a free Starbucks coffee through their app, so he ordered an enormous mocha which we split for the potentially sleepy ride home. As always, I whipped out my reusable mug.
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
