Then, we went into the Vehicle Registration office to replace our yearly sticker for the one that melted in the fire and they didn't charge us a penny! Awesomeness!
We're always careful how we spend our money... we've become quite frugal, trying not to be wasteful. Living like a Tico definitely helps. We rarely buy packaged foods now, preferring to practice a more 'from earth to table' mentality. We stopped by a nursery to have a look at avocado and sweet mandarin plants. We bought three mandarin plants... they will take three years before they produce any fruit, but we already look forward to plucking some fresh mandarins right off our own trees. Each tree cost us $4 each.
