Frugal deeds for the day: I contacted the realtor about 2 short-sale condos - 1 has sold. The other, I would be interested if I could drop the price about 15%. Just sent him an e-mail. Tomorrow, I will mainly concentrate on cleaning and preparing a few meals ahead. Today during lunch, I made a quick trip to the grocery stores. I got a turkey for .59/lb - frozen - it will be defrosting until Thursday a.m. Trying to decide if I want to stuff one into the freezer for later. My husband excitedly told me that he used a coupon today :) He also called the tax assessor's office in his State - and taxes are considered late around mid-February. Here - 1 Jan of the new year. So, that gives us some breathing room. We are protesting the taxes in January as they are about 25% too high based on our calculations. So, we shall see. My husband called the condo manager and she stated that the maintenance crew have not put the new furniture together - but when they do, they will update the pictures and description of our condo. We sold another video game on half.com. My daughter will have a small chunk of change to add to her camera fund at the end of the month.
