12/10 Expressions

Frugal deeds for the day:  A local cupcake shop was giving away cupcakes for donating items for the homeless.  My daughter and I took some canned items and she got a cupcake.  Then we each used our starbucks card (she got her own - a mypoints freebie) and then we headed to JCP - with my $10 off $10 coupon.  I found a hand towel for the guest bathroom - regular price $25, sale $12.50, minus my $10 - so $2.50 plus tax.  Still a lot of $ for a hand towel - since I just purchased bath towels for $2.22 on Black Friday.  A bit of embellishment and they become crazy expensive.  Then to Earthfare - we had coupons.  First, we got an organic lunch - and a free bag of organic sugar.  After lunch, we did a bit of shopping of shopping there with some more coupons - we got 2 lbs of ground round for free and a whole chicken.  Also, the store brand truffles were on sale, so, I bought a box for $5.99 to add to the mixed nuts I got for my contribution to the office holiday snack session.  My daughter and I watched another Redbox - I think the $1 rental has now come and gone.  But, I got some knitting in.  Now I need to get some cleaning in and get set for the new week.
