Things were quiet here yesterday because after I got home from skiing, I promptly got sick with a cold.
Hopefully it’ll be a quick one! I’m already feeling much better today.
1. I caught a $150 medical bill error.
I noticed that a $150 appointment bill came back unpaid, and after a few phone calls, I figured out that it’s because the provider put the “missed appointment” code on the bill instead of a regular appointment code.
So now we are getting $150 credited back to us.
Keep an eye on your medical billing, people!
2. We used a Panda Express coupon on a date night.
It’s a new location and for the time being, each receipt prints with a survey code.
The survey takes about 5 minutes to complete, and you get a free entree in return. Which means Mr. FG and I can both eat for around $11 total.
We used the coupon, and then I filled out the new survey, which means I have another coupon to use next time.
3. We got a free book from the library.
(We don’t deserve a lot of credit for this one!)
Sonia picked out a Mark Twain book, and when we went to checkout, it wouldn’t scan. Apparently it was supposed to be out of circulation, and the librarian said we could have it for free.
Sonia, unlike me, is a person who enjoys owning books, so this is perfect for her.
4. I bought reusable travel toiletry containers.
I got a set of 4 for about $6. This way, we can fill them with whatever lotions/shampoos/conditioners we want when we fly.
Although, after I bought them, I realized that I could have just saved the empty containers from previous travel toiletry purchases and then refilled those.
Regardless, I won’t have to waste money on tiny toiletries in the future.
5. I got some marked down Valentine candy.
Chocolate for Zoe and Lisey, conversation hearts for Sonia (she doesn’t love chocolate, and a lot of the assorted chocolates contain nuts anyway.)
