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.
