11/12 Expressions

Frugal deeds for the weekend:  We just got back from the beach - we just completed a whirlwind maintenance of our unit.  We painted, I put stick-on tile in the tiny laundry room, purchased a refrigerator, a 42 inch flat screen tv - we used every discount we could.  The new sofa and chair from Overstock had not arrived - so, we made arrangements with the maintenance department to assemble them when they do arrive - shortly. They shipped on the 9th of this month.  We also replaced the balcony chairs, since they were rusting.  The salt air/water is tough on metal.  We brought them home and I plan to use rustoleum paint and use them on our deck here with the glass top table that needs some paint on the metal portion.  In the mail, we got plenty of samples in 1 day's mail and a couple of rebates.  All-and-all, it was pretty frugal - because if we let them rental company take care of everything - it would costs lots of $.  So, we saved a bundle - no telling how much :)
