A one day sale at one of the sporting goods stores has cooling weighted blankets. I sure hope I get one before they are gone. We aren't going shopping until after lunch. We also have other coupon deals then the 2nd hand store.
Quit when you’ll be mediocre, when the returns aren’t worth the investment, when you no longer think you’ll enjoy the ends. Stick when the dip is the obstacle that creates scarcity, when you’re simply bridging the gap between beginner’s luck and mastery.The Dip, Seth Godin

Our Federal tax refund was credited to our account this morning and was sent on as a principal-only payment on the mortgage a minute or two later. My future self will be happy but my present self suffered a few pangs of self pity.
I had a bit of a coffee table debacle. Coffee table I wanted became unavailable everywhere, just as I was able to order it. Amazon wanted $273 from a third party, Walmart want $243 from the same third party. Ordered from Walmart only to find out a week later that the third party vendor didn't have it, so order canceled. Found it in NC at a small place with free shipping for $217. Shipped out Friday, so if it arrives undamaged, I somehow saved $26.
Simple everyday frugal activities: mixed up a double batch of laundry soap, line dried two loads of laundry, meals from the freezer and pantry. Ordered some vitamin supplements on-line from Wal-Mart but the order isn't scheduled to be here until the 6th of April ((fingers crossed). The other supplements I wanted to stock up on at Safeway have been unavailable (in store and on-line) for almost two weeks.
Gardening (weeding flower beds), watching old movies and reading books from our "in-home library" helps to pass the time without spending money.
