I just had a nice little errand run. This morning I found a grocery store gift card in my desk that I'd forgotten about - found money, yay! I also remembered to bring my re-usable bags. No big deal if I forget, but they are worth 5 cents each. Before I hit the grocery store I stopped at the library to pick up a hold. It was on a book that I had been tempted to download to my kindle last week for $11, but decided it was worth waiting for a library hold since I was #1 on the list. (heck, a lot of the time I'm #19 on the list and it's usually still worth waiting!)
So, 7 miles put on the car, but I saved $14.62 with the found gift card, $.10 with the grocery sacks, and $11 on the book. Feeling pretty good about my morning!
