February No Spend: Free Toothpaste

February 2nd, 2016 at 12:08 pm

I went to the dentist today. No cavities for me, just some teeth they are watching for various reasons. I walked out with the standard free toothbrush, toothpaste and floss. I was happy about the toothpaste as I know the tube I currently use will not make it through the month of February. So I'll use the little tube and scour the house for another if necessary. The cost was covered under our dental plan.

I have also eaten at home for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast was yogurt and coffee. Lunch was leftover cheese pizza and salad. If I'm hungry later, we have popcorn on hand. Or maybe an apple, cut into slices would be more satisfying. I will probably be having both before the month is out.

I prepped our dinner for tonight. Egg casserole. I expect this will count for two meals. My husband and I are the only ones who eat it. My daughter will have scrambled eggs, which is super fast to throw together.

It's a bit frustrating to see coupons such as $10 off a $10 purchase come in the mail from JC Penney, or have Kohl's tell me I earned a $5 reward. I don't plan on purchasing anything at those places, because if I do I'm sure I would spend more than the coupon. They are clever that way aren't they?

I managed to work a little more on a sewing project. My daughter has the next step, before I do the final part. Although she may do that as well.

I think I'm about ready to start working on our income taxes. As I said before, I dread it a bit. I know I have to learn the new rules of the American Opportunity Tax credit. At least the software should walk me through it.

I'm also on the look out for a cheap and preferably free McAfee Internet Security. Our plan expires this month. Any suggestions?

And if you didn't notice, it seems that today is actually a no spend day! Yippee!!

    Thanks MM and FT. If I can't find what I'm already using for free, I will go with AVG. Free and good protection is what I want.
