Frugal deeds for the day: We made a quick trip to the beach. My dad babysat the dog. We paid him in brownies, pumpkin bread - and brought back licorice and Blue Cheese Pecans from Harry and Davids. I printed off a few Travel Center free hot drink coupons - and we enjoyed a freebie. We also ate a few nice meals out with Restaurant.Com 90% off gift certificates. We looked at 6 beachfront properties to help us decide if we wanted to sell-out or stay for a rebuild - or possibly do both. We liked 3 of the properties - the realtor will send us more statistics on Monday. There were fantastic deals at the outlet mall. I picked-up 5 shirts at Ann Taylor Loft for $4.77 each :) One shirt was for my daughter. My husband got heavily discounted jeans and shirts from Tommy Hilfiger - and 3 $5/5 coupons at other stores kicked-out. You know I used those - we got socks, a polo shirt, and a necklace - after heavy discounts and coupon, the 3 cost around $14 including tax. Then we went to a New Year Eve party at my daughter's best friend's house - and just got home. Actually, it has been 1/1/12 for about 15 minutes now . . . I plan to hit the hay shortly.
