Technology and Frugality

Or, how I realized how much I depend on my computer for my frugal exploits!

I accidentally allowed a truly huge virus system onto my desktop. I tried to fix it myself but to no avail. Since access to all the cords is well behind my desk, there is no way I on my own could get it into the store, even if I wanted to. Today the geek squad came and saved my life. I did have use of my laptop, but I have bookmarks here that are not there, and it is not hooked up to the printer. So I could not print shopping lists from Coupon Mom, Print out all the really good retail coupons I found, or do many of the other things I do to cut my costs down to much less than retail!

Today I'm back up and a busy bee. Ive printed out coupons for $15.00 of $15.00 at the limited, $10.00 off $10.00 at JC Penny, and coupons for a bunch of other place, as well as my deal list this week with matched coupons.

Its really amazing how much the computer allows me to cut my expenses!
