Frugal deeds for the day: My daughter was a bit envious of my bargains from the thrift store. So, I took her today, and it is still the "Grand Opening". So, everything was 50% off. She got a new "Free People" shirt and Steve Madden shoes for under $10. We also got a free lunch and they gave each of us a free t-shirt. My husband and I went to the "Y" to work out - and he gave them our notice to quit. Unfrugal deed, my husband got two temporary crowns today. Very grateful to have dental insurance - but even so, it was a tad over $700 for the two. I have a realtor looking for a beachfront condo - must be a bargain :) My daughter is out with friends. We made a fabulous dinner at home (we saved some for her). Earthfare had a coupon, 2 lobster tails for $10 - my daughter and I each redeemed them. My husband ate 2. We also caught a nice sale on Top Sirloin at $5.99/lb. We got 1 large steak - was just over $7 - and cut it into 3 pieces. Some shoestring fries, a salad - and we are satiated. So, surf 'n turf for 3 people for the price of 1 at a restaurant.
