    Default Saving Saturday January 5th 2013

    Taking the girls for a planned shopping trip today. It was one of their Christmas presents. We have a budget. We will also grab lunch while we are out so not our most frugal day of the month but worth the time I get to spend with them. They want to spend their money at goodwill for half price day! Teaching them well!

    That sounds awesome! I wish my mom would go goodwill shopping with me!
    We are both working half a day and then going to Home Depot. It will not be a frugal trip, but it will be a cash trip

    Quiet day for us. I've done my morning chores of tidying up and DH is lounging on the couch. Chicken Wings have been marinating since yesterday and just need to be popped in the oven a little later. I have a cucumber and some cherry tomatoes that need to be used up so I'll make a quick salad out of them. Lunch will be something simple and easy. I don't think there's anything else that needs tending to today.

    Bright cold sunny day here. Was able to get my walk in which felt good. Planning on taking it easy and may even take a nap.

    Feeling slightly more human today.
    Still laying low and relying on dh to take care of Mini.
    Hopefully, I'll be myself by tomorrow. In the meantime, lying down and drinking oj and ginger tea with a side of Tylenol Cold!

    Spent the majority of the morning just laying on the couch and catching up on old episodes of Bones on the DVR. Taking my antibiotic and steroids and feeling a bit better. I think the Alka-Seltzer sinus medication has more to do with that than the other stuff, though.

    Then, ran to the PO to mail out some eBay sales stuff. Then used a DD gift card to pick up DH a coffee.

    All meals from the fridge, pantry and freezer today.

    My parents gave me a $25 gift card to AMC theaters and I have a $10 reward from my Stubs card, so DH and I are headed to see Les Mis tonight. Can't wait!

    I went shopping at thrift stores with my mom today, we packed a light lunch to avoid fast food. I did spend some money. I got a water cooler, pocketbook, medium water pot, and some pairs of earrrings.
