Frugal deeds for the day: I think a few frugal lightbulbs have gone off in my daughter's head. This week she realized that although we have not subscribed to cable for years now, clean our own house, do our own lawn - doing those things enables to spend in other areas that are important to us. She realizes that we really don't miss cable because we don't have much time to watch tv. She even pitches in more with household chores. Last week, she saw a dress marked down from $4xx to $45. We let her purchase it with her own money. She got it in the mail today. She tried it own and there was a that look in her eye. She really wanted justification to keep. First because it was such a big discount, but then she said it didn't fit well and she'd probably only wear it once. So, on her own, she has decided to pack it up and return it tomorrow. No matter the discount, if you don't need or want it, it isn't a "saving".
