All the Low-Hanging Fruit

June 25th, 2016 at 12:21 pm

My scavenging has paid off, but I'd dearly like to find another $500, so the scavenging will continue. Except for a massive five-item grocery list, everything this week will be from the cupboard or freezer. Maybe I can do this in $25 increments and get some decluttering done at the same time.

My daughter learned a valuable lesson yesterday at Starbucks with some friends. Her drink didn't come and in her adolescent shyness, she was a bit scared to speak up--something she never is around here. but she texted me (isn't this odd?), and I gave her a script of what to say to the cashier. She got her drink, a free cookie, and a $5 gift card. Lesson learned; speak up for yourself.

    Good for her for asking you for help. Some kids that age are so shy!

    My college daughter just told me she feels like she never starts a conversation. I know this isn't true, but she feels that way! I do know that she does approach and start conversations if absolutely necessary.

    That's great! Good for her, and she'll know how to handle a similar situation in the future! Good luck finding the $500, you can do it!

    Good for DD! I'm going to be with you on short grocery lists, because I have a ton of food in the freezer to be used up!

    Good that your DD knew who to go to when she needed a little prompting. Smile
