Year of Miracles #35

Two money-saving miracles this week:

1. I filled up my minivan gas tank (17+ gallons) for under $25 on Thursday. I was shocked! I think it has been more than five years since I have been able to do that. Am I remembering correctly...?

2. Remember how my washer and dryer have been breaking down every so often this past year? I think the washer has broken down twice this year and the dryer was out of commission for more than a month early this past year. Well, I had just invoiced a client with the intention of using the funds to buy a new set (or a reconditioned set). But then two days ago an e-mail was sent out by the RS president -- a family in our ward had a set (working) they did not need and wondered if anyone needed them. As soon as I saw the e-mail I called them up and was able to secure them for us. Yesterday my hubby went and picked them up. They still need to be installed, but I am really grateful for the savings this affords.


  1. Yay! And double yay! I'm with you, I think it's been close to five years since gas was this cheap. Woopee!

  2. Hooray for clean clothes. I was outsite when your husband brought the new washer & dryer home & my uncle & cousin (big guys) unloaded it for him. Funny how nothing makes moms happier than a big bunch of metal parts that makes our lives easier.

  3. It's a amazing what blessings come our way! Even ones we don't ask for!

    I haven't been able to fill up our gas tank under 80 yet but we'll keep trying!
