Last week I bought the dog a new toy that is supposed to slow her down while she eats. Instead it causes her to bark loudly- maybe she thinks she'll pursued it? Either way, it's an "outside" toy so as long as its's daylight hours I don't mind. 47$ saved Yesterday I went to coffee … Continue reading Three coupons
Rarely do I have S home on Sunday's but today is one of the few. We did groceries (loads and loads so that I can avoid the stores till after the holidays), stopped at the post office and now for hot chocolate. Even without snow it's cold! Free hot chocolate with the Be Local. 45$ … Continue reading Hot chocolate
Tea and sympathy is the phrase but rarely do I drink tea out of the house. On Tuesday I had coffee with a friend who I've been trying to have coffee with for the better part of two years. We both have residents with high needs so it's rare to get time away. She's been … Continue reading Coffee and sympathy
Food miles comes up a lot when you're talking about groceries and environmental impact. I can say our beef for the next two years will have only 32 road miles on it. We went out to butcher "Pappi" today- the yearlong steer we bought. He'd never been more than a pasture away from where he … Continue reading Food miles
Normally coffee out is a rare thing but this week I've gotten to go twice. A friend treated me to coffee on Monday and I treated an coworker (sort of, I don't actually have coworkers because I'm a live in for two adults with developmental disabilities and she is too but for different people). Any … Continue reading Coffee out
My sister leaves in the morning, so a liquor store run was in order to get through today. Saved 3$ on the beer/cider. Either 30 or 35$ saved (math might be faulty due to my share of the wine).
As mentioned, my sister is in town so we've been a bit more touristy this week than usual. Today included beer and snacks out, the bookstore, hot chocolate tasting (and fancy coffees after that), then wine tasting and finally home. On that note: we went to Brew but didn't use the coupon. Went to Maria's … Continue reading A two coupon day
Today is Thanksgiving and my sister is down from Denver for the week/end. So yesterday included a coupon shop at a liquor store I've never been to, to buy vodka for wassail and champagne for dinner tonight. 5$ saved. 22$ total. Pictures to be added later if I think of it. Until then a place … Continue reading Thanksgiving booze
Yesterday I went to buy a new (to me) cat crate at the Humane Society Thrift Store because my big orange cat is going to live with my sister this weekend. He's been with me for 9 years but my allergy to cats now means I cannot even have him roaming the house let alone … Continue reading Coupon used and sad(ish) news
New coupon book is in hand. Plans and hope have been found. I've had the book a day and used one coupon.
