    Early: I am so sorry about your cousin. I think spending money to visit DH's aunt is a very wise use of resources.

    My son found a gas station that is 4 cents a gallon cheaper than what I have been paying.

    Had a refrigerator clean-out yesterday and ended up making a really good ratatouille. Never made it before, but it was a hit and there are enough leftovers for lunch.

    thank you, rosarugosa. I am rather shaken by how much I miss her, but I have a ton of happy memories. We did a lot of stuff together, most of it very frugal. The KISS concerts, not so much, lol.
    Anyway, I am struggling to find ways to save money now that DH and I have passed the "do it yourself" stage of life for major projects. We had to call a plumber for a blocked pipe that we would have tackled in our more youthful lives. We did have a coupon, but still it was expensive. Why does nothing break during the week??? So I am back to saving pennies in the hopes they will turn into dollars, lol. My dryer is used sparingly. Our barista-made coffee drinks are fewer and farther between, and if I can't get it at the dollar store or Aldi's, I'm probably not going to buy it. I found a pair of pants in a stack of stuff - I need to hem them for this winter. My sister and my DD found me some wonderful items at a yard sale last week for a buck each, and they will also help spruce up my work wardrobe, plus there was a very glittery jacket that was perfect for my best friend's youngest daughter's wedding last weekend. It had the added advantage of making sure I could always be found, as it left a trail of tiny bits of glitter wafting in my wake....
