Eric and completed 3 things this morning, all of which were free or made us money:
- A very productive trip to Half-Price Books (over $50! unheard of!). We only walked out of the store with one thing. A miracle, for sure.
- A stop by Target to get the last of the baby essentials, all of which was more than covered by gift cards.
- A trip to our local library. Eric’s lived in this house for four years, and I’ve lived here for almost two, but neither of us had ever picked up a library card. We’re so excited about our little village’s awesome library!
We’re spending a lot of time rearranging our budget and trying to cut costs lately, and I’m so proud of us for getting out of the house and being productive without spending a fortune. I even picked up a book on budgeting and finance for new parents at the library–how about that for two birds with one stone?
