Hope SIL will be okay. I get my second shot this Friday.

Mackie, what a great savings by turning 2 flea collars into 3!! They are so expensive! I need to replace them for my dogs soon - it will be almost $130 for two collars.
I buy the large size of flea meds and divide them between the 4 pups.

Ah, that's smart. I might "pull a Mackie" and see if I can make 3 collars out of the 2 - I remember last time I bought them, I had to cut a lot of extra off both - so maybe.

Good afternoon, frugal friends. DH and I have been doing household chores, including a trip to the grocery store for some major shopping. We spent $146, which is huge for us, but did a lot of stocking up. We found some excellent deals on clearance -- Italian-made pasta for $1.48 a pound was one -- and had some really good store coupons for things like apples, fig bars, and almond milk that we buy every week.

While we were at the grocery store, I bought a Visa gift card to put my accumulated pocket money on. Where I work, it's nearly impossible to spend cash. Everything is set up to take cards, and once in a while I really want a bag of popcorn or a soda.

This morning I opened up the new flea collars for the dogs and did the trick of turning two collars into three by constructing a third collar out of the cut-off ends of the first two. The collars are the right size but are still way too long for the two younger dogs, so I punch holes in the cut off pieces, sew them together with nylon twine and then wrap the ends with duct tape. It makes a slightly loose collar that slides on and off for the oldest dog. She is intolerant of anyone fiddling with the buckle on her collar, so this works out great for her.

Off to do more laundry, and I have to cut DH's hair today. I trimmed my bangs and am trying to hold out until after the second vaccine when I can get a professional haircut.

Clem, I hope your plumbing troubles get better, and everyone has a peaceful day.
Mackie great frugal save on the dog collars.
