I decided to use some of my savings in order to prepay for Dh's 12 chiropractor visits copays and get a 20% discount. His copay is $25 per visit and the chiropractor office offered a $60 discount if we paid in full in advance, so I decided that would be a smart move with the savings. I sure couldn't earn $60 in interest over the next month! Now, I just have to really try to put $20 back in savings each time he has an appointment, to refund the savings account the $240 taken out.
I splurged $8 on myself the other day and bought a book for my Nook reader. I've really been wanting to read The Hunger Games and it's not available to borrow from my library as an e-book. I finished it in like 3 days and now of course I want to read the second book! I am so tempted to just touch that little "buy" button - LOL. But, spending another $20 right now to get the 2 sequels, isn't in my budget, so I reserved the next one at the library as a book on CD and looks like I will be waiting awhile. I did find The Help was a borrowable e-book and am reading that one now. I'm also working on getting enough points through Swagbucks and MyPoints to earn some Barnes and Noble gift cards, which I will use to purchase the next Hunger Games books, if I haven't already gotten the CD book from the library. Reading on the Nook is so much easier on my eyes, since I can adjust the font a bit bigger.
Oh my goodness - I was just looking at how many Swagbucks points I need for a $5 Barnes and Noble gift card and noticed I have a referral that joined from my Swagbucks link and I am earning some points from now!! A big thank you to whoever "Becbrennan" is! That is awesome :)
