The temperatures were cold in the south this past weekend. *I will pause here while everyone up north giggles a bit.* My ideal temperature has a low of 75. I am that crazy person who loves when it is 90+ degrees. I did keep the central heat cut lower and wore a cozy cardigan while in the house.
As much as I would have loved to stay in all weekend, I still had outside chores to do. I bundled up in a set of coveralls that I purchased at yard sales. I got the overall pants at one sale and found the jacket at another. Since they were children's sizes (L and XXL), I was able to score a very good deal. I have used both for several winters now.
I made several birthday cards from items that I had on hand.
I took advantage of some deals at Amazon. I bought Glad trash bags as W hated the cheaper ones that were free with sale/coupon. I also bought canned cat food for less per can than I was able to get locally on sale. I chose the slower shipping on both items to get credits.
I took advantage of a sale and a coupon to get some OTC medicine that W uses at a bargain.
I wanted a house for Thea on the back deck. We used a small rabbit house that we already had - modified a bit by W using materials on hand - so we had no out of pocket cost. This was important for a starter house as we have no idea if Thea will even use it.
I received coupons for free candy bars which I won in an instant win game.
