This cute sign was posted at the entrance of a now-closed Mexican restaurant in Hawaii.
Yesterday was David’s 66th birthday, so we took advantage of the special deal at the Japanese restaurant, Makino Chaya: Birthday person (David) has a free lunch if accompanied by a regular paying customer (me). So that’s what we did. We stood in the buffet line many times and helped ourselves to many types of Japanese food – all for the price of one paying customer. What made it even sweeter was that I had a 5% senior discount. Total price for the two meals was $13.91 (including tax).
That’s David second from right:
There are so many ways we can cut the expense of living in Hawaii, which has the highest cost of living in the United States. One way is the special deal at Makino Chaya Japanese Restaurant, as described above.
Another way is to take advantage of the special discount at the Dole Movie Theaters. Every Tuesday, David pays $6.00 for admission and $2.00 for a bag of popcorn. What a great deal! Think of the savings. I don’t usually watch movies, but we plan to see “Cinderella” this Tuesday, because we want to see the fabulous costumes and the pretty people in this movie. It will be a visual feast, and any movie with a happy ending is worth seeing in my opinion.
Today, I plan to go to Macy’s for retail therapy. I have to replace my shoes, which I purchased in 2008. I have worn these shoes in Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, India, Miami, Washington, DC, as well as Hawaii. My shoes have seen better days, obviously. I hope I can find something decent with my Macy’s card and discount coupons.
These are the shoes I want to replace:
May you find ways to live well but inexpensively, too.
