I had this post halfway written yesterday but never finished it! So I’m preempting my grocery post to publish this instead.
Apologies for the photo-less post. I got nothin’!
1. I pointed out a doctor’s office credit.
Some months back, we had an appointment at a doctor’s office the day after we met our deductible, but it wasn’t in the system yet.
So, we had to pay for that appointment out of pocket, and after the insurance was sorted out, we were left with a credit in our account at that office.
This means our copay for subsequent appointments is covered for a while, but at an appointment this week, they said we needed to pay $39.
Aand I was like, hmmm, no, I don’t think that’s right.
I inquired about the credit, the receptionist checked, and sure enough, we still had a credit balance.
(Always keep an eye on medical bills, you guys. Errors happen!)
2. I redeemed credit card reward points.
Now that Costco accepts Visa, I can cancel the American Express card that we’ve kept solely for Costco purposes.
I’m very happy to simplify my financial life by one card. Yay!
While I was on hold to cancel, though, it occurred to me that I should check my reward points. Sure enough, I had $100 worth of rewards, so I redeemed those before I cancelled the card.
3. I made do for dinner last night.
My day did not go as planned yesterday and I didn’t even get around to dealing with dinner until 7:45.
I knew I had some bacon in the fridge and some tortillas in the pantry, so we had bacon and cheese quesadillas.
It wasn’t fancy, but it was quick and easy and it did the job.
4. I haven’t really gone grocery shopping.
I don’t give myself much credit for this, as it’s largely due to a bunch of busy days. But I don’t think I’ve spent much at all on groceries…just some small trips here and there to fill in.
5. Hmmm….I made yogurt.
I know that’s not very exciting. But it is frugal.
