Ritz Carlton = Frugal

Ritz Carlton = Frugal
How is it you ask?

I often blog about ways to save money and how to be frugal. So I am sure you all think I am a big fat liar when I say that I stayed at the Ritz Carlton and it was frugal.

WELL... let me give you a little peak how.

OK it would have been so easy to just put it all on the Discover Card! But that sure wouldn't be frugal.

However, I do have a Discover Card and just like this Pink one- isn't it so cool and girlie?

Well we put almost everything we can on the Discover Card every month and I pay it online through my online bill pay every couple of days. That way we pay no interest but we get lots of points!

I used my last 2 months of Discover Card points to pay for a little mini-vaca with Haley at the Ritz Carlton. Just a cool way to be frugal but get some really awesome treats while building memories!

The last 2 years the boys have gone on what seems their annual hunting trip to Texas ( I will spare you the dead hog pictures).
So this year I decided Haley and I would take a little vaca. I got a one night stay family package for $199/night (remember I used my Discover points to pay for it). Haley got to eat free and a friend AND I had a $50 resort credit to use towards my food.

Somehow we ended up with a Casita and we weren't even in the main hotel lodge - guess it was our lucky day?

This had the deepest bathtub I have ever seen!

One door shower and one door toilet  - it was crazy!

The shower was crazy awesome!

Notice that really cool TV that you can watch while taking a bath?

Love this mirror!

Oh yeah baby- the whole reason I picked this resort - the WATERSLIDE! And yes I went down it too!

Doesn't take much to impress this simple country girl!

View from lunch

Again doesn't take much to impress us!

Oh yeah baby! Oh wait that's right I had 2 kids with me- Coke it was! But pretty impressive huh?

Infinity pool at sunset

I loved the fire bowls! They were everywhere and it was just gorgeous!

Oh I forgot to mention we had a visitor on our porch! It was SO GROSS!

The Infinity pool was lit up gorgeous at night.

So remember when trying to think of some great vacation ideas - think outside the box, have a stay-cation - check out the local deals that include meals, use your credit card points! Make the most and be frugal and Make some Memories!

Which one is professional?

Can you tell which one is professional?

Haley's cute little foot!

My Flintstone feet!

Do you want to know which one was done professionally?

OK OK, yes it was mine. BUT I thought Haley did a totally fabulous job on her toes! She did it all by herself!  Now if I could just teach her how to wax eyebrows!

Everyday - In Common?

What in the world could these 2 items have in common?

Seems odd I know. But first of all, I shred my junk mail every day. I either shred at home or take to work with me and sort and then drop in our shred box. Trying to keep some identity protection.

Second, the bottle of water. I drink water a lot! This is a 32 oz. refillable container (BPA free!). I normally drink 2-4 of these bottles a day depending on the day.

Friday May 27, 2011 was the first day of the year for us to hit 100 degrees! If that isn't reason enough to drink lots of water - check out these reasons:

According to the Mayo Clinic
  • In general most doctors recommend 8 to 9 cups of water daily
  • The average urine output for an adult daily is 6.3 cups
  • You lose about another 4 cups a day through breathing, sweating, and going poo!
  • If you go solely on feeling thirsty this isn't necessarily a good tool to use. By the time you feel thirsty you could already be slightly dehydrated

According to Global Healing Center
  • Our blood is 83% water!
  • Our brain is over 80% water!
  • Our energy can be affected by the amount of water we drink. It has been medically proven that a reduction of bodily fluids by 5% can reduce our energy levels by 25% to 30%
  • A reduction of 15% of bodily fluids can cause death.
Every organ needs water! Most of us don't drink near enough water!

Remember it is as important as ever to hydrate with water - especially now that it is summer time!
