Thrifty Thursday 25 Oct 2012
Hmm... no thread yet today, or last week. Apparently our Thursdays aren't being thrifty lately. Ah well, adjust and move forward...
Today I forgot something I needed for work (and I live too far away to just run home.) At the store I noticed that although they were packaged in 3-piece packages, there were price signs for just one... so I asked and was able to buy just one (so $4, instead of $12 for two more than I needed.) Since I was out that way, I swung by Subway and got lunch for today and tomorrow BOGO and stopped in at the CVS next door to load up on $.99 diet coke 2-liters, saving a second trip and gas costs later.
While I was there, I got new vitamins BOGO, one for the office and one for home, but resisted the urge to buy a new lipstick (because I want some, but I probably have a couple child-ruined ones at home I could make due with if I use paint brushes... have to explore their hiding spots and see.) The lipstick would have been $9.69- $1 coupon... and then I would have felt compelled to buy something else in the same brand to get the $3 ECB with $10 purchase... of course EVERYTHING was $7 or more... so I just didn't bother at all. Yay!
I also stopped in at the thrift shop, but they didn't have anything I needed, or even wanted... they did have a colorful bead necklace that made me happy to look at, but I'd never wear something like that, so looking is all I did. Shiny things make me happy Leaving them at the store makes me even happier.

I've stayed home all day, so no money spent there. Went through the pantry and fridge to make a menu for the week. I'll just need a few items from the store to complete dinners for next week. That will leave some money to stock up on any sales I find.
The heater is still not on! We are just using blankets for now
Got some free candy for Halloween. I may need to pick up another bag or two.

Dark and cloudy day here. But the grow light I have on makes it seem bright and sunny outside. No spend day here and no urge to go to the thriftstore!!

Spent the day with a gf shopping for a few necessities. Long day. Beautiful day here - very unseasonly warm. Not complaining! The only spending I did was gassing up the truck and buying lunch out.
