Cheaper Day

July 13th, 2010 at 12:37 pm

I've been trying to think of lots of small ways to save money since it's been an expensive summer. Today I took DD to the mall where they had a special kids' event with the local nature center, science museum, and arts camp offering a visit with raptors, a slime-making sample, and a flag craft. It whiled away a couple hours and cost nothing since we brought our own snacks and ate them in the food court. Plus the nature center had free passes that will come in handy. We're members there, but they're great to give to friends who hike with us.

We had a visit from the electric company who installed a radio control sensor on our a/c. It will allow them to switch off our a/c occasionally and give us $50/year.

I hung out some laundry, and we're eating last night's leftovers at lunch with some more at dinner.

I sold another book for $7 and netted $120 Sunday night at my rich folks book club. I'd still like to list some ebay items in the next few days. Maybe this afternoon?

    That sounds wonderful. I'm glad you all had fun.

    One of my yearly budgeted items is a year's membership at our local zoo, The Living Desert. Even when its horribly hot, I can go there early in the morning before the heat goes up and see the animals and just enjoy the beauty.

    I so need to get back to ebay! Great job on the free entertainment.
