Frugal deeds for the day: Prior to leaving for my dental appointment this morning, I wrote a letter to the Board of our HOA - and the President did call my husband and apologize and stated that their actions were unwarranted. I just don't get the bad manners - especially by a group of people who should check and monitor each others actions. So, one annoying problem out of the way and the threat of a $100 fine is out the window. So yup, sometimes a letter calling out those who should know better works. We are experiencing bad weather. Today, I plan to cook ahead some meals - but today, dinner will be a coupon for a large take'n bake and tomorrow, dinner will be the combination of a check and a groupon that cost $10 and tip. I still plan to keep cleaning the closets and look for organizing resources from around the house. So far, I have saved 2 egg cartons - I was thinking of painting them - but will probably leave them as they are - to use for desk drawers to organize small items. My husband has been a big help in helping to declutter, etc. Other than gassing up the car, and stopping at Aldi for some great produce deals - and the aforementioned meals out, that should be the extent of our spending this weekend.
