Ummm.... might have to rethink the lawn service

July 10th, 2008 at 05:12 pm

My lawn service just sent me a notice saying they're adding a $3 gas surcharge. They only come out every few months to fertilize and/or aerate but suddenly doing those things myself isn't looking too bad....

    Anyone else thinking what I am thinking ... That compulsive debtor has officially earned her "serious frugalite badge"? Smile Way to go!

    Well, I haven't given it up yet....

    I keep telling my husband to cut our service and he keeps "forgetting" to the tune of $49 per month. Ugh! Cut it!! You could probably even find a spreader cheap in a garage sale or on Craigslist!

    Not the lawn?!?!?! The humanity!!! Is nothing sacred in your budget?

  5. compulsive debtor Says:

    Don't worry, Merch. My husband nixed canceling the lawn service. As he points out, we have too much lawn and too many lawn problems to be fertilizing it ourselves. Plus, we (he, actually) barely has time to mow, let alone fertilize and aerate.

    Consider moving to Arizona. There is far less lawn to worry about. Smile

    Yeah, but then my AC would be running around the clock, Merle....
