Free McCormick and Schmick's $25 Gift Certificate

To get a free $25 McCormick and Schmick’s $25 gift certificate go to this page and follow the instructions. This offer ends this weekend so if you want to take advantage of it you need to hurry. They had a similar promotion earlier this year which I used and it worked fine. Otherwise the restaurant is too expensive for me.

Here are a couple of other good deals.

TextPayMe is still offering a $5 bonus for referrals. I cashed out some of money from them earlier this month and it went through with no problems.

Festival of Frugality #93 Picks

I’ve been pretty bad about submitting article to the Festival of Frugality lately.  Here are my picks from the latest Festival of Frugality which is being hosted at Money and Values.

Dinner and a Movie – That Doesn?t Cost a Fortune posted at Unclaimed Money.  These are good tips and I follow many of them myself.

 Fitness on a Budget Part 1: The Poor Man’s (or Woman’s) Precision Nutrition Plan posted at Caustic Musings .  I’m a big fan of this blog and it will be a valuable resource someday when I actually get serious about getting in shape.

My Super Cheap Ex-boyfriend posted at xynny.  This post is pretty funny.  You can take frugality too far.

Movin' On Down

I’m moving into a new apartment next month.  I will be moving down from a 1 bedroom to a studio.  This will save me $60 a month in rent.  My new monthly rent will be $375 which is pretty cheap even for here.  It is almost as big as my current apartment so there will be plenty of room for me.  I don’t have a lot of stuff and don’t need much space.

The location is nice too.  While searching for apartments I discovered that you can often get an apartment just as cheap in a nice neighborhood as in a crappy one.  My new location is very convenient being about halfway between school and work.  My bank and a grocery store is right across the street so I should be able to cut down my mileage a little. Hopefully that savings won’t be negated by impulse junk food purchases at the grocery store.

When I move in I will have to get gas service again.  It will be cold soon and I have to have the gas on for heat.  I’ll be looking forward to it because the cold showers are starting to get a little too cold.

Thanks Everyone!

Thanks to everyone that left a comment on my last post.  I have had counseling and medication for depression in the past but it wasn’t much help.  I’ve been in counseling through the summer but when I wasn’t re-admitted for this semester I wasn’t able to continue at the school counseling center.  They did transfer me to a community counseling center but I haven’t followed up on that and set an appointment.   I’ll be doing that Monday.

I do think the lack of caffeine contributed to this bout of depression.  I quit cold turkey and from what I’ve read online it is best to gradually go off caffeine.  I probably should have done that research before quitting.  I gave in yesterday and had a soda and I have a lot more energy today.  I’m going to continue it for a while but try to keep it in moderation which I haven’t done in the past.  I’ve been planning on starting running again but have kept delaying it.  I did get out and run today and I think it does help.  Thanks again to everyone that left a comment.
