    We are traveling on Wednesday. I booked the trip a couple of months ago. I just sat down and checked prices and was able to rebook both our hotel and our rental car at lower prices.

    Hotel savings $26.99
    Car savings $48.71
    -----------------------------
    Total savings $75.70

    Not a ton of money but that will pay for a meal or two.

    * There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going.

        We've got rain coming. Real rain. So I got up and cleaned what part of the roof I could, and cleaned all the gutters. Usually we pay someone to come through. Saved us a couple hundred bucks today....and I clean my own skylights Just in time for fall...we'll have our regular guy come out once everything is down and hit it again.

            the power vent for my coal furnace was rattling horribly.
            after taking it apart I diagnosed the problem.
            one of the mounting bolts had snapped and the factory gasket had failed.
            i made up a new gasket with some high temperature rtv sealant and installed a rivet where the broken bolt was after drilling it out

            saved about $350

              Prevention win this week thanks to DH.

              We're having a house built. They left one of the upstairs windows out so they could pass the upstairs drywall through. After they installed that window, DH noticed they hadn't applied the sealing insulation foam that the rest of the windows have around them. He mentioned it to the site supervisor, who confirmed it needed to be done, but it didn't happen. (There was no more sealant on-site.) When the trim carpenter started to install the window trim (window wrap), DH realized that window was going to get wrapped without insulation/sealant so he popped over to Home Depot, bought a can, and quietly sprayed it in himself right before the trim went up. It's the sort of thing you'd never be able to see just from looking at the completed windows. It might show up in an infrared energy audit but at that point it I'm sure it would be much more work to remedy.

                Caught 25 nice big channel catfish Friday. Had enough for a real nice fish fry with friends featuring; catfish nuggets, hush puppies and homemade coleslaw, plus (17) bags of fillet chunks for the freezer.

                  That must have been a massive catfish.
