We were able to sublet an apartment a mile and a half from the University for $600/mo. for 2 months.
Glenn was able to bike to school for all of Summer Anatomy = no gas or parking expenses.
Glenn was able to take Summer Anatomy and so free up his fall schedule.
We were able to use our downstairs neighbor's internet for $10/mo.
We were able to buy a Canon G9 camera with lots of accessories off of Craigslist for less than $400.
Glenn had been thinking he would like a big bottle to collect loose change in and a couple days later there was one out in front of the neighbor's house. From in front of the same house we also got an office chair, a bookbag for Glenn that he used everyday up until last week, and a couple of purses for the girls (yes, we curb dive).
Glenn got a good bike off Craigslist for $30 that he only had to walk down the street to get.
We went to free movies at Regal Cinema several times.
