It’s been almost two weeks since The PG Girl packed up all her stuff and utilized her one way ticket to Warsaw. (Insert a very sad face here). After almost 12 years in NYC you can only imagine how much guts it took to do that. But she did. I am ‘WhatsApp-ing’ with her now and besides complaining about this gloomy, fall weather day, she is doing very well. I mean what’s not to like? She is settled in a beautiful apartment, her lovely parents just a couple of hours away.
Poland has so many amazing places to enjoy; lakes and mountains, Baltic Sea shores, cute small towns, charming villages. And the best part? With so many competitors, the airfare to neighouring countries is dirt cheap. If purchased ahead of time you can fly from Warsaw to Paris (return) for $24, to London for $18, Oslo for $28 and Tel Aviv $80. The PG Girl is currently working on her travel schedule. I am so jealous!
The PG Girl’s move made my best ‘frugal accomplishment’ week yet. While she shipped to Poland 13 huge boxes, she left behind a LOT of things too. I got quite a few of them for which I am forever grateful.
I shall not bore you with more photos but I also graciously accepted a box of vitamins, some cosmetics, a couple of brand new face creams, hair products, a moose, a hand painted vanity-mirror box and a few other things.
Other than all of the above I was able to stay on truck to keep my frugal ways:
- finally got enough swagbucks for $15 Amazon gift card
- my work has Amazon Prime account, I added my personal account as ‘shared household’ so now I have Amazon Prime shipping as well! For the price I like – $0
- I got a $5 rebate gift card from Bed, Bath and Beyond. I will combine it with store credit from the vacuum cleaner and a 20% off for max savings, once I know what I want to buy.
Wishing everyone a great Sunday!
