We all have those days I think, where we just don't do a good a job as we want- whether it is with that diet we want to start today, a sewing project we want to finish up or being as frugal as we want to be. Today was one of those days for me.
I've been frustrated lately about all the detours we have had around town- our town is having its Main Street tore up to have sewer and water pipes replaced- this has been ongoing for at least a month, and it's a very big inconvenience-it means time lost travelling the long way as well as extra gas to go the longer way.I'm not sure when they will be done, but it still looks like a while.
On another note, I was able to use some of my free coupons at the grocery store today, but I also tried to use my $25 Mastercard gift card up,( which I had gotten from a rebate). I had picked up $27 worth of groceries,and at the till they could not process it...I was creating a line up, and so I said don't worry about it, and figured I could use it on my next grocery trip at another store-but I wasn't impressed, as I could have done without some of the items I picked up just to use it...grrr.
I also tried calling to comment on three grocery products today,(which I do every so often- lately, have been doing daily though),but to no avail. Everyone today just gave me the " thank you for calling- we appreciate your comments".
Oh well, maybe tommorow will be a better day for being frugal, getting some deals or perhaps winning a contest.
