Search My Frugal Miser

Sunday, December 20

I'm Still Here!'s been a week since I posted anything on My Frugal Miser. Last week was quite busy:
  • I helped my mom move to a new place.
  • I survived the third week at my new job, and attended my first Chamber of Commerce luncheon. I'm never one to pass up a free meal. Plus I ran into an old friend/co-worker I hadn't seen in a couple of years.
  • I won a door prize at the luncheon which included two movie passes. My partner and I went to see Twilight: New Moon at the Rave theatre for free Friday night, then treated ourselves to sushi using a coupon I had purchased several months ago (we spent $17 but without the coupon it would have cost $42).
  • I earned almost $150 mystery shopping on Saturday. While everyone else was out Christmas shopping I was shopping for income.
  • My neighbor proved that good deeds are rewarded: my partner and I "secretly" carry the neighbor's newspaper to their door (he is handicapped). I guess the neighbor knew it was us all along because his wife brought us a Christmas gift basket yesterday. That made my day.
I'll post an update to my Clutter Roundup tomorrow. I realize I'm running out of month and have a ways to go.

  1. Busy week indeed. I´m glad you´re still sharing your FI adventure because I enjoy reading it. I´m still a bit...puzzled. How you managed to get so much bank credit is still a "mistery" to me :)
    Good deeds do pay off, even if they don´t materialize.
    Happy New Year!
