Step toward goal; sewing biz; dorky frugal move

April 9th, 2009 at 08:36 am

$150 went to the savings account today, starting the vacation fund for our September trip (exact details TBD). $150 down, $450 needed for the April savings goal!

NT and I put up flyers about AS's sewing services, and she already got a response from one of NT's co-workers who needs a dress taken in. If this goes well, she indicated she might have other things in her closet that need alterations!

Yesterday I paid a bunch of medical bills. As I was planning to go the the post office to buy stamps and mail them, I realized that two of the businesses were within a block or so of the post office. So NT and I walked in and hand-delivered those bills, saving about 75 cents! LOL. I felt like kind of a dork but neither receptionist batted an eyelid, so I guess it's not unheard-of.

I haven't been posting every time I take a step on some of my other goals, but I've been keeping the sidebar up-to-date. Doing pretty well on the fruit, but everything else is lagging a bit. Oh well, I've got tons of time.

    That's cool about the sewing biz. I know how to sew a seam and sew on a button, but not much more than that. I wanted to learn how to do more, but my mom hated sewing, so I never really had anyone to teach me.

    Anyway, hope the biz takes off!

    Good for AS! I have thought (occasionally) about doing some sewing to add to my "egg money".
