Frugal deeds for the day: We have been getting home mailer coupons for quite a while. But lately, I have noticed that the coupon deals are really entising. We have a local diner that sends out coupons for b1g1 free breakfast, lunch and dinner. I had never considered the place before. But, my daughter and I went the other day and were pleasantly surprised. For $5.50 (before tax and no drink), you get a choice of a meat and 2 vegetables and for .25 more, you can add a third veggie. It also comes with Texas toast. Even with tip, it is cheaper and healthier than a fast food meal. The place was clean, and not very busy. Sure hope they get more customers so the place will thrive. Today, we are attending a seminar. Then to Costco for gas and a few groceries. They have a lot of sampling stations - and they sure are popular. We hope to stop by Bath & Body Works for their free scented candle for this weekend for Facebook Fans. I have been visiting the "Y" a little more consistently - and am starting to feel the impact. Next month I have an appoint with the personal trainer to set-up an exercise program. This "Y" has gotten popular quite quickly - sure hope they expand as at ":peak" times now - it is tough getting a machine. Someone said this is the "New Year Resolution Crowd" - give it a month or two and the crowd should dissipate. I hope not - I hope they expand and the crowd keeps coming for their fitness and the fitness of the center.
