The Birthday Spendies

July 12th, 2010 at 08:17 pm

DD's birthday has been an expensive week--between the upcoming party and the various gifts etc. I'm just biding my time until we can get back on the ole budget bandwagon.
Tonight we took DD our for the traditional California Pizza Kitchen birthday meal. She got her dinner free, thanks to their birthday club, and we got a free "small craving" appetizer. I think the waitress thought we were crazy, but we took the appetizer home. We had a coupon for it, but really didn't want it. Looks like pita and hummus for me tomorrow for lunch.

My goal for the week is to photograph and list some of my mom's things that I retrieved from her house. Wish me luck!

To go with my last "foraging" post--I sold another of the discarded books on Amazon. I'll add that $30 to my total sales.

    Hmmm, I just took my DIL to California Pizza for a birthday lunch and wasn't aware of a special. It wasn't actually her birthday, anyway, just the first time we could get together to celebrate it.

    Hi Carolina Bound!
    You need to sign her up for their birthday club--but wait--it might be just for kids. It is a smallish good deal. We always ask for the bread too--it's free, and DD loves it.
    Here's the link for the kids club: http://www.cpk.com/cpkids/

    Ah, just for kids, that makes sense. I'll tell her, though, so she can sign up her son!
