More frugal things (because it has just been that kind of week)

  • Back in January I bought tickets to a concert for my closest friend and I for her birthday. It was scheduled for June 24th and I was crossing my fingers that by some miracle we would be able to attend. Of course, the show has been cancelled. While I am super bummed, there will always be another show. And this morning I saw that the cost of ticket was refunded to my account. So that money went straight into savings.
  • While I was online looking at my bank statement I noticed two charges of $70 from Instacart (the grocery delivery app). Yesterday I ordered groceries for delivery and they put a hold on your card of a certain dollar amount, and then refund you the difference based on what you actually spend. But twice? That didn’t make sense. So I reached out to customer service, and if it doesn’t disappear in 10 days I will contact them again for a refund. It always pays to check your statements people!
  • I have been eating a lot of snacky bits instead of full meals these days, and that works just fine for me. Half a bowl of steamed rice? Snack. Leftover broccoli? Snack. Strange, but it’ll do and it will prevent food waste!
  • I sent referral codes for Imperfect Produce boxes to three friends and they all signed up! I should have $30 credit for this so that’s very exciting!
  • Not exactly frugal, but I have been sending at least one card a day to a friend or loved one. I think it is so important to stay connected now more so than ever. And everyone loves getting mail that isn’t a bill. So I am happy to send random cards to the people I care about to brighten their day.
Wayne and I on Earth Day two years ago. He kept saying “Momo hair” as the wind blew my hair in my face. He would very carefully pull the hair aside, only for the wind to do it again. Sigh, hair Momo. One of my very favorite memories with him.
