We went to a little town, Saxaphaw, NC. DH has been wanting to go for ages so we took a short road trip on Saturday. We went to a pub, The Eddy, and ordered 1 beer, 1 root beer and 2 appetizers. The totals was just under $19. Frugal loss. We could've and should've packed a lunch but we like to try new pubs and restaurants.
From there we went to Mebane, NC to the Tanger Outlets. I went to the Coach factory store and found a beautiful red bag. Oh did I mention that I love love love purses? Yes I do, it is ridiculous. Dh said he would buy the purse for my November birthday. I thought long and hard and...........voila! I put the purse back. I. did. NOT. buy. the. purse! Major frugal win. I was not totally purchase free though. I went to the Hanes store and bought 2 large packages of Just My Size hose. One in nude and one in barely black. I NEEDED them.
So today I gave my tithe to our church, did a tad bit of grocery shopping. I am kind of happy with myself. I wasn't perfect like Frugalwoods but it is an accomplishment for me.
Here are a few photos from the weekend of pimento cheese fries, the Haw River and turtles!
