Frugal deeds for the day: Today was such a nice day - it sure was hard to think about much. I did mainly relax and take a nap. I just recently cut up the pumpkin - it did have a few "bad spots" that are now in the compost. The seeds have been roasted and are great tasting - just put a bit of EVOO and a dash of sea salt on them. The pumpkin "meat" is cooking with the 2 apple pies. I also put the big eggplant in a baking dish with some baby carrots - with a bit of EVOO and salt. They will become part of some kind of salad. I have enough salad for the next 2 days - and then will have the eggplant with whatever else looks good for the rest of the week. I found another condo short sale . . . I have an e-mail into the realtor to find-out if a contract has been accepted. If not, we may make a quick trip down and look at it/make an offer. Added: Since we have a little bit of time, my daughter said she needs to do a school project that will require a purchase at Michael's. Also, we will need to buy a water heater when the flooring gets replaced. So, I just ordered 2 discounted gift cards. We will use coupons at both places to stretch our $ even more. In addition, we need a few more "Hilton Honors" points for a stay at a hotel, so, we used my husbands credit card.
