I am currently working on learning four chapters’ worth of material for a regular exam (#8 for the semester) which I need to take this week, and then on Monday, I have a cumulative final.
Normally we only have two chapters of material for each exam, so four chapters is feeling like….a lot.
I don’t know why they set it up this way; perhaps a trial by fire to weed people out?
I read yesterday that only 50% of people nationwide pass Anatomy and Physiology 1 on their first try, and I am not surprised, especially if students are taking it in conjunction with other classes.
Anyway! I’ve been busy studying, and I don’t even know if I have five frugal things to list. Lemme see what I can come up with.
1. Mr. FG, Zoe, and I worked on leaf clean-up
We paid Zoe for her time (this is an above-and-beyond chore since we have a zillion oak trees!), but it was still way cheaper than hiring someone else.
And we’d rather pay Zoe anyway.
2. I found a $20 discount code for a gift for Mr. FG
I can’t tell you what it is because he sometimes pops by here. 😉
3. I got some deals on an Old Navy order
Both Lisey and I needed some new masks (pretty sure they will be required next semester too!) so I ordered two packs from Old Navy because I love the ear adjusters.
I had a $38 credit, mainly from taking advantage of the Old Navy credit card reward offers, and I added a few other things to my cart to bump my order up to the $50 free shipping level.
4. I used a Starbucks credit to get hot chocolate after tree shopping
We went out and bought a Christmas tree last night, and it’s sort of a tradition for us to go get hot chocolate afterward.
I had a $10 Starbucks card in my account from my Erie YourTurn Rewards, so I used that toward the drinks.
5. I filled up my gas tank at Royal Farms to earn points
Their gas is usually a good price, and if you pay with their card, you earn points which you can redeem for things like a free family pack of fried chicken or free chocolate bars.
Ok! Nothing earth-shaking, but I made it to five.
Your turn! What frugal things have you been up to?
