Frugal deeds for the day: I ordered the VOIP equipment from Amazon with a $45 credit we had for a returned item. Of couse the item was less than $45 - so, to use up the credit and take advantage of the free shipping with $25 - I ordered some pods for coffee maker. We deposited the dividend checks we've received in the last week or so - 3 of them and rounded them up with change around the house :) Today I am going to get my eyes examined for "free" - I paid $50 for a plan several years ago - so, no money out from my pocket - and I will be ordering contacts - and will be reimbursed by our HSA. And instead of a loan from from me - I will be getting a loan from the HSA as I am sure the amount paid in will be less than the amount paid out so early in the year. I plan to stop at Earthfare for a few good cheapies - 4lb bag of organic oranges for $2 - the $5 for 5 items in the food revolution deal isn't bad either. And, while I really should do some deculttering today - I may lighten up and relax instead :) - just for today.
