Frugal deeds for the day: I am "off" my day job today. This morning, I played chauffeur for my daughter and drove her to school 1 early to attend a meeting. I sat in the car and read my free morning paper and drank coffee from home while I waited for her and drove her school 2 to attend class. To make it worth while, I stopped at Kroger and picked up a few manager specials and items on my list. The cashier was impressed because I "saved" 54%. Now, I have the crockpot going, will get out the garden shears and trim/pull weeds in the flower beds, and do a bit of cleaning. I also hope to get in a nice long walk before she gets home. I am not complaining - but it looks like it is about to storm - and we definitely need the rain. I picked 9 banana peppers from my "garden". My pear tree has about 5 pears on it - and I am hoping I can harvest them shortly too. This weekend, we plan to declutter a bit more, stop at the mall and get my daughter's freebie Ben & Jerry's cone (birthday club), free item from Victoria's Secret - and I am hoping my half priced Art Museum membership card comes in the mail today so we can stop at the museum and see the latest collection.
