Frugal deeds for the day: My heart skipped a beat this morning when I checked our e-mails. We currently own interest in some beach front property (our condo got hit by both hurricanes - and a developer that was planning to buy us out/re-build ran after making several substantial deposits). Anyway, we may have a developer interested in building on our land - and we may be interested in "buying" - depends on the final terms and if it actually goes through. Cheaper than buying a foreclosed one - hopefully. So, that was a nice bit of financial news. My daughter and I got our hair cut and colored for $24.95 - and we went ahead and splurged on the conditioning treatment for an extra $6 - nice pampering - and if the economy is bad - you sure couldn't tell it from the traffic last weekend, nor this weekend. I stopped at Aldi and got most of my baking stuff and a few other goodies. I will also use some $ on my "freebie" Wal-mart giftcards to round out my grocery needs. A couple of bags of pureed pumpkin are about to become pumpkin bread. All I can say, even at Aldi, nuts are expensive.
