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.
