I'm trying to be mindful of saving dollars and not wasting. I did pretty well this past week or so, with one exception.
Those thick 2"+ steaks that I have and wasn't having the best of ease broiling/cooking so thick....Sunday I let one steak thaw out about halfway and then cut it in half, thereby making 2 1" steaks. They worked perfect and perfect size for us. So, now 5 steaks left will become 10.
I made a casserole the other day for dinner and didn't freeze half and ended up just dumping out what we didn't eat. BAD! I was very lazy (I think this was last Friday or Saturday). Last night I made a tuna casserole for dinner and put half in the freezer.
Our propane/gas company had sent out a postcard reminding about the summer fill lower rates and to call by 6/30 to schedule the fill. I called yesterday. Since our tank is at about 45% and we don't use much in summer, she said they will put us on the schedule for later rather than sooner and we are locked in. The main guy had called or texted DH about it a few weeks ago but now I can't remember what he told DH the price/gallon is. I think he said $1.25. Then in August or September we will also do the "pre pay winter contract", to lock in a winter fill at lower price. I think we have finally figured out how this all works to save the most possible.
DH's health insurance just sent out a notice that for June's premium they are giving a small discount due to Covid-19, so will save about $7 there. I think they spent more to send out the notice than the discount, LOL. There was 2 pages to the notice plus another 3 pages of privacy notice.
DH's "new" lawn tractor is having issues staying running. It's like after it's been running awhile it heats up and shuts down. He's thinking/hoping it's just the fuel pump and wants to get a new one from the John Deere dealership. Like he said - there's always a reason someone is selling their stuff, LOL.
A year and a half ago I bought my iphone 6s (ya, I'm always way behind, but not willing to spend those ridiculous amounts for the latest and greatest). It was on sale/special for $5/mo for 24 months. Except they bill it strange. It's billed at $15 a month and then a $10 credit, equaling out to $5 (no interest). I had hoped to just pay off the phone in full, without continuing the extra $5 month payments, but they won't let me, LOL. If I want to pay it off early, I lose the $10 month credit and would have to pay the $15/mo for the remaining payments left. Oh well, it's interest free, so no biggie. I'm sure as soon as I get mine paid off, DH's phone will need to be replaced. Always seems to work out that way.
Working on MTurks again today. At $5.34 so far.
