Congratulations on becoming a grandma!
Great job stocking up for the winter. I have never canned so can't give you any advice.
Handmade gifts are great, especially if they are useful like the potholders. You are doing great!
Yes, staying focused is the key for us, and you are absolutely right, this frugal forum helps me as well. When I am living more frugally so does my husband which usually doubles our savings!
Absolutely! Kuddos to you for beating the procrastination bug!
I have scarey closets I need to sort through. But I figure that's that mess no one can see, so it can wait lol
I understand your struggle completely! I find I'm more frugal during the winter months, when hydro bills go up and grocery prices are high. Summer months have more temptations, especially since there is so much more to do (for those of us who don't ski). I'm on and off the frugal wagon, myself. But staying aware is a good thing I also realized recently that my spending has been over the top, and so find myself back on the frugal village site looking for inspiration. Good thing we have this forum to help us stay focused
