There, NML, back on topic?
Careful, W2R! You are slipping! You must work hard to maintain your frugal reputation, inheritance notwithstanding!

I've found the cheapest lunch snack in town. I just go over to Sam's Club and taste all their free samples of everything from hot pizza to pretzels. Some of it isn't too bad either, and the price is always just right...free!

Costco has better handouts than sams club, hands down. Either way, thats Gabes lunch a couple of days a week. A couple of days ago we had onion bagels with cream cheese and smoked salmon, horseradish cheddar, pepperoni pizza, cheese blintzes, hot wings, potstickers, pomegranate juice, and dark chocolate squares.

I did have to pony up 89c for a large coke for us to split. Tempting to spend the extra 61c to get the hot dog, but we were stuffed!

I did make a mistake by calling the people handing out the food "lunch ladies" when he was small. Now he yells it as soon as he sees one.

Want-2 is frugal enough. She just makes it hard for old Frank to be.
