Frugal Friday File 2018, week 2...

1.  I finally got around to taking my prescription for new glasses to get filled.  I thought I'd try Costco's Optical department.  The cost was $120 after insurance for new frames and progressive lenses (trifocal) with no line, no glare, etc.  They will be in within a week to 10 days.  Hopefully the quality is as good as the service was.  I declined the $40 discount to order a second pair.  My prescription didn't change much, so my sunglasses are still fine, and in a pinch my current glasses could get me by till they could be replaced.

2.  I turned in one of my survey validations for a free drink at Sonic.

3.  I've been doing a bit of menu planning and trying to avoid the grocery store.  Taking stock of the freezer confirms that we should be well fed for quite awhile.  I have a ham and a turkey bought on sale before the holidays, and some shrimp, bacon, sausage, and frozen chicken.  That is more than enough to hold us for a good while.  The produce section is the easiest to shop, so I don't mind running in to refill the veggie drawers in our fridge.

4.  I came across a book that I wanted to read.  Not available at library.  Ugh.  And I'm determined not to buy books this month.  Rather than caving on my resolve, I entered a request at library to have them acquire it through purchase or interlibrary loan.

5.  I worked two days this week.

  1. One of my resolutions this year is to use the library. If I go to the library, maybe I will make time to read.

  2. I was at the library yesterday. I love to visit my library friends and chat. I brought home three so maybe one of them will be good. One is really weird, Forty Rooms.
