Driving DH's fuel efficient car rather than my van

Combined errands

Brought own bags to grocery store for 10cents refund each

Cut DS's hair myself

Decided on Netflix movie rather than going out to theater

Changed hotel reservations (no charge) to a similar hotel for $50 less a night

Used coupons to take DS and his friend bowling

Swtiched curriuclum vendors
