Save Here, Spend There

November 1st, 2016 at 11:57 pm

I've been saving and spending, saving and spending.

Spending:
- Spent all of my birthday money from my mom... F's room looks fantastic! And we are still waiting for her new beanbag chair. She does her homework on the floor - I think she'll love the beanbag. I always wanted one as a kid, and was afraid to ask for it. I showed one to F, and she was so excited! She was afraid to ask, too! (Like mother, like daughter).
- Snow boots for F - her feet are now my size! I couldn't put this off much longer; the weather is starting to turn.
- Going to Pittsburgh for soccer camp (indoor!) just after Christmas.

Saving:
- Needed a sign so that people stop confusing my house with my neighbor's. She put in a fence on her side of our shared driveway which makes it look even more like the driveway is just mine, so recently there has even been more confusion. I didn't want to pay for a sign, and my neighbor didn't offer to help pay for it either, so I hand-painted it myself. My neighbor even emailed to say it looks great! So that was definitely a savings!
- Dinner tonight is tostadas... very frugal!
- I am snuggling under the covers instead of turning the heat up!

    Lowering the heat bill is studied endlessly here in the frozen north. If you are willing to wear some kind of knit cap, fingerless gloves, and warm socks on feet you will feel warmer in a lower temperature. When we lived in China, it was always colder in the buildings than outside. We walked into the apartment and put on a down vest and knitted wool socks. There was no choice as only the main room was heated.

    Beanbag chairs can be awesome. Smile
