Frugal Deeds for the Weeks: Yesterday, I shopped at Publix to round out our groceries. They have started to become fairly picky with coupons (usage way up?). Anyway, I had Earthfare's coupon - buy $5, get a Pointsettia Free. What do you know, the cashier took it into the manager and he approved it! I had a nice shop - saved $49, spent $27. I don't want to jinx anyone, but our retirement and personal stock/mutual funds are looking better - we are slightly ahead of where were back in mid '07. Yes, I realize we have been making contributions since then - but, it feels good. I found an interesting craft idea to use up old aluminum pie pans - I have a few hanging around - think I may make a few.
