My life, my pond, my world

Welcome to my lil private pond of life, love, happiness, frustration, anger, frugality, independence, spending, and thrift shopping ways of life. I have traveled down many paths to get where I am today, some good some not so good, but come and have a lil insight of my daily activities and the normal trials and tribulations of my frugal life. I will keep you posted on my journey as well as probably fill your head with a lot of rambling because I tend to do that when I have so many thought coming out at once. So pick up a few cookies that I have left for you on the table,and grab some nice hot coffee and sit down and enjoy my lil pond called LIFE!.

  1. Okay Christmas, here I come....

    Yesteday was just a horrible day to say the least, It started off the night before when the tire-pressure light on my car came on, which normally is no biggie, I just would go get air in my tire the next day before work. So I didn't think anything of it, I went home, made dinner and was totally exhausted to start the next day of work.
    I woke up yesterday in a pretty good mood, went and took my car out of the garage and just for Sh*ts and giggles, I parked the car, walked around to check my ...

    Well here we go, closer to the first pay period of mine (Friday) since I joined this site, and there is actually money in my account. Yay on that regards.
    Now for the BOO!!! - Mortgage, cable, payday loan payments, and extras for christmas have to come out of this pay… Yep, the big BOO is order.
    I'm trying not to stress to much, because DP gets paid on Thursday of this week and she gets paid next Wednesday prior to Xmas Eve. But the problem there is a car payment has to come out of ...

    Well just a lil up, it is now Friday and I survived a week on my budget. Albeit it was a lil tough, but I kept it going, I still am stressing out about Christmas and well I need to pay the cable bill since it is due the 15th, of this month, but I think I might drop the check off on the 16th, and it will clear in time for the next pay period of Thursday and Friday for the direct deposits. I just hate doing that, but right now I'm survival mode and you have to do what you have to do.

  4. Still stressing, but trying to breath!!!

    Well day 3 of the work week and I'm feeling a little bummed today. Again, my long drive to work keeps my motor running in my head and all I do is think think think. I start rationalizing my bills and seeing what I can not pay right now and put off a couple of days and still not have the bill be too late. I keep telling myself, after Xmas, things will get better, I have a schedule worked out with the bills and things should be on track by the end of January, but I just the fact that I have to pay ...

    Well Sunday and Monday went pretty good without a hitch…
    I am sticking to this budget if it kills me…Sunday we had all these Sheetz' coupons for hamburgers and fries, so we went to two Sheetz stores and each got a burger then went to the other one and each got fries….it was funny but that was our lil interesting lunch. It was so cold out on Sunday we just had comfort food, Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup.

    Yesterday at work, I was starting to stress out but after I wrote that ...
