Frugal deeds for the day: My daughter and I donated school supplies we had already stockpiled - to walk around the local botanical gardens. Nice to donate stuff - and be able to enjoy a nice afternoon look at others' creativity - scarecrow displays. I plan to finish the dog's jogging suit this afternoon as the weather is turning cold. Hopefully she will appreciate it when the weather is cooler. I also made a nice crockpot of curried potato stew - it turned out delicious. We are set for the rest of the week and should not have any reason to eat out :) This month has flown by. My husband gave out trick or treating candy last week in the town w/our foreclousure home. He said he had about 80 Treaters - and was glad he bought a large bag of chocolates to give out - in addition to the free bag of candy we got at Earthfare - and a couple of packs of chocolate I got at Rite Aid with UP dollars. This week we will have Treaters visiting. We used to get a handfull - last year about 20 - not sure what this year will bring - but I have 6 packages of snack sized chocolates using UP dollars from Rite Aid and 2 bags of organic suckers my daughter and I got for "free" at Earthfare.
