1. I claimed my $125 from Equifax.
I looked my info up on their eligibility checker and yep, my data was part of the breach.
So, I filled out the info and a $125 check should be on its way to me.
(You can choose a check if you have credit monitoring already, and since I have it free through Credit Karma, I was able to choose the check option.)
2. I helped Sonia and her cousin make an apron out of a sheet.
I’d picked a white sheet up at Goodwill years ago because it had a fun eyelet trim and I thought it would be useful for making a dress.
But I never got around to it.
Luckily, it came in handy now since the girls wanted to use a vintage pattern to make an apron. We didn’t have any fabric sitting around except this sheet, and it turned out to be the perfect amount.
It turned out to be a slightly complicated pattern, considering it was just an apron! But we made it through.
And it’ll definitely be easier the next time we make one (this one went home with the cousin, so Sonia still wants to make one for herself.)
3. I paid our car insurance bill in its entirety.
It’s a painful bill, but it IS a little cheaper if you pay it annually vs. monthly. So, that’s what we opt for.
Of course, I used our Southwest Rapid Rewards credit card to pay the bill (hello, free flights!) and then I immediately made a payment to the credit card from our checking account.
4. I got a library book from Florida. (!)
I saw an article referencing the book Raising Humans in a Digital World, and my library didn’t have it. So, I put in a request (I thought I was requesting that they buy one), and they got me a copy from a Florida library.
I’m not sure how this is more cost effective than them just buying a copy of their own, but it IS frugal for me.
…planned a menu, renewed my library books online, sent leftovers with Mr. FG to work, and ate some more beets from my Hungry Harvest box.
(I still have three more beets to eat!)
