Frugal deeds for the day: I got my hair cut/styled, eye brows waxed and a French manicure at the beauty school. Then to Aldi - I picked up several things - but the .99 strawberries were the hit of the day. I just made crepes for dessert - used the recipe in my old Betty Crocker cookbook - and used whipped topping from Aldi also. I "won" a sticker filled card for a free McCafe at McDonalds, and a $5 Best Buy card on Listia. Then, I took a few broken pieces of jewelry to be repaired. I "won" some Mikimoto pearls - necklace was broken - but there were 31 pearls and 1 on the clasp - just in eye balling the pearls - the jeweler stated they were worth about $200. I am paying $38 to get them re-strung into a bracelet for my daughter. My husband bought me ruby earrings ages ago - he said he didn't pay more then $100 - one earring needed repair - cost $20 - she estimated the earring by itself was worth $300. My husband was shocked. I found a few more items to put into the yardsale.
