  1. Enjoying My Day Off

    by , 07-30-2014 at 05:44 AM (My Journey to Simple Living & Happily Frugal)
    Today is nice & sunny..
    I went to do grocery shopping, had a nice lunch (frugal price but tasting good) and also stopped by the Gadget store to check an android phone with auto focus camera but it's out of stock.
    I also stopped by at a Chinese stall to buy steamed dumplings (dimsum) & yogurt at a small dairy shop.
    Now I'm home relaxing, thinking about cleaning my room & organizing the drawers.

    Quickly checking in to catch up on reading threads and posts. Also an update on debt repayment.
    My dh changed our plans on how to spend our tax rebate. We were going to make an extra payment towards our home equity loan. Instead....He has been wanting to trade in his 2 door pontiac G6. It had 113,000 miles on it and was not practical for traveling with our day care clients. The back seat was useless. Most of us couldn't get in and out of it.
