Got some frugality business done

March 25th, 2008 at 09:38 am

This morning I took care of a few things I've been meaning to do for some time. First of all, I wrote a letter to my old credit union officially closing my checking account. I received a note that they would start charging fees if I didn't make direct deposits or keep a $2500 balance in checking. Since I don't need it, anyway, I closed it, but kept my savings account open. I have been a customer there for a long time, and I want to keep the relationship going in case I ever need a loan.

Secondly, I sent a copy of our family's deed to a cemetery lot back in Indiana, inquiring if they have any (ahem) extra beds left? Just need to know, even if I don't decide to plant my mortal remains there.

Third, I called Liberty Mutual and got a quote for auto insurance. It turned out that they couldn't give me a better deal than my current State Farm policy, but I will get a $25 Target gift card for making the call.

I've also taken several surveys and ordered a Cracker Barrel gift card from MyPoints, so I feel like I've put in a day's work! Whew! Time to get back to reading and watching movies!
