1. I used a $5 bagel coupon.
A new-ish bagel shop near us sent out a $5/any purchase coupon, so I went and bought six bagels for a little over a dollar total.
2. I gave Sonia a haircut.
She’s been wanting a shorter bob, but was unsure about how short she wanted to go. So I suggested that I could cut off a little here at home, and since my services are free and readily available, I could always cut off more a few days later if she so chose.
(Apologies for the dark picture; I forgot to take a photo of her hair until late last night!)
She thought that sounded good. And as it happens, my first try did end up being short enough for her. Excellent.
3. We used a coupon for a free Redbox rental.
We’d been wanting to watch the new Christopher Robin, and it came out on Redbox recently, so we rented it yesterday.
SO CUTE. We loved it.
(I’m on the hold list for the library copy, but I’m really far down the list. And we weren’t quite patient enough to wait!)
4. Mr. FG updated the Blu-ray player.
I deserve no credit for this one!
At first, our Redbox rental wouldn’t play (it just froze), so we googled and discovered that you have to update the software on Blu-ray players; otherwise they’re not able to play the newer discs, which have more stringent copyright measures.
So, he updated it and we were able to watch our rental (instead of giving up and paying to stream it!)
5. We ate a bunch of leftovers for lunch yesterday.
We had 1-2 servings left of several main dishes, so we ate up ramen bowls, polenta with tomato sauce, and pulled pork.
This makes me very happy. So many leftovers cleared all at once!
