Frugal festivities continue

June 11th, 2015 at 07:55 am

along the lines of:

1) Opened capital one savings account with $5K from EF - will get $50 in 90 days (this was in lieu of opening checking accounts - which I had planned, but never did). Also considering the Discover savings account for DH and making another $50. Will most likely divert those bonuses to Dec FL trip.

2) I have decided to take a seminar this summer - one week long the first week in August. Tuition during the summer is 35% cheaper than in the fall/winter/spring sessions.

3) I returned an impulse purchase to Sam's Club - $5.xx. I realize that I don't look good in orange and I never will, and I really like my white/black/grey palette. Note to self: avoid clearance priced clothing in the color orange/melon or turquois/aqua green. These will never, ever work for you.

4) I returned the Christmas gift to the store DH purchased it from and have a store credit for $76. I didn't have his debit card for it to be credited to - but I do like the store he shopped at, and will have it for future needs or whims.

5) Cleaned up the jewelry that I'm going to hopefully sell tomorrow.

6) Limited driving today and designated it a NSD.

    Orange isn't good on me either. Sounds like a good day Smile

  2. CB in the City Says:

    I can't wear beige or any heathery color, but for some reason, I most especially cannot wear raspberry pink! Turns my skin green!

  3. My English Castle Says:

    No orange for me either. Or beige. I remain a winter--clear colors only.
    I love returning things. They're out of your house and you have money (sort of) in your pocket.

    You're funny! I look terrible in most colors... Unlike CB, I only look good in raspberry pink and dark red (my skin is really yellow and my hair is really dark). The problem is when I need an article of clothing and neither of these colors is in fashion.

    I've never tried real orange next to my skin, but the bridesmaid dress I wore to a friend''s wedding in 2004 was a form of orange (on the very light side) and I got lots of compliments. I personally hated the dress and the color though.
