As long as I live in my little town, I will have to be well-behaved. Just today, I had to pick up a prescription for a back ailment. The druggist was the father of one of Frugal Son's preschool pals. Working at the counter was a friend of a friend of Frugal Son, who also was in Mr. FS's class last year.
That person told me that there was a good coupon for something I wanted to buy; she produced one from behind the counter. Thanks! I saved $10.00.
I mailed something at the little postal station at the grocery store. Angela, who works there, asked how my back was. She recommended a cortisone shot. Then I noticed piles of peppers (red, yellow, and poblano) on the reduced shelf. 39 cents a pound.
Since I was right there, I nipped into Big Lots. The nice lady who puts out the food said that nothing special had come in. So that saved me some time.
My mother is visiting. She and Mr. FS just went off to Acme Oyster Bar, an iconic New Orleans restaurant, which has an outpost here. They have an oyster special: 25 cents an oyster between 3 and 5, Monday - Thursday. Sadly, I don't like oysters.
What a frugal day!
Do you think small towns are conducive to frugality?
