Frugal deeds for the day: Today was a nice mail day. Notification that rent from one property was paid early :) I am on track to meet our savings goal for the end of the year. Of course there's three months left. After my daughter and I attended our hot yoga class, we stopped by Aldi for a few produce items. We had a nice lunch at home. Then we headed to self-service yogurt bar with our Groupon - and spent nothing extra out of pocket there. We stopped at TJ Maxx and my husband and daughter got a few items to supplement their winter clothes wardrobe. We used the TJ Maxx gift card I had purchased at a discount. Then we headed to Homegoods - and spent the rest of the giftcard plus just over $1 - mainly on food/spice items. Then to Earthfare - we each did the $5 deal for 5 breakfast items. Natural eggs, almond milk, granola, a breakfast bar, and orange juice. Definitely a great deal. My husband signed up for his own account - so, he got a coupon for a free natural chicken with an additional $10 purchase. He purchased some desserts with pumpkin in them, and a few deli items for the vegetarian. We stopped at Publix and got another $1 movie to watch, and I spent the $1.60 on my rebate giftcard for a dessert at Publix - .32 out of pocket. Then I helped my daughter upcycle a leopard print vintage shirt. The only thing we did was take the shoulder pads out - so, another fashionable item to add to her winter wardrobe.
