  1. New to Us Dining Room Table and 6 Chairs.

    by , 11-14-2014 at 09:25 PM (Living A Simple Life)
    My Fiance and I found this Dining Room Table and 6 Chairs at a steal...ok, maybe it wasn't free but as far as I am concerned we needed it and sometimes one needs to treat themselves....we are all current with our debt/bills payments etc.....We do have a little bit of room for a little luxury and to us this was it. We paid $100 for this set, he threw in $50 and I threw in $50 plus another $25 each to go get it for gas in our friends truck as it was an hours drive away. So basically it cost us a total ...

  3. Week 2 of the Renovation

    by , 09-10-2014 at 07:57 PM (Creative Call)
    We discovered we should not be using the garden hose to fill the water jug. So we went out and picked up an RV water hose from Walmart for $12 CAD to do the job. Other than that, the system works great.

    Hubby is reacting to all the dust and fumes from the renovation. This could get interesting. We will be airing things out as best we can every night. Hopefully it will not get too cold.

    The freezer meals are holding up. Hubby and the boarder have lots to choose ...

    Well, the sales I wait for are here. Five pound bags of carrots, onions and beets are on sale for $1.88. Along with ten pound bags of potatoes. This is when I stock up and spend an afternoon peeling, slicing, and blanching Thanks to the farmers market, I've already loaded up on kale and beets, and my freezer is starting to fill up for the winter months. There's something about looking in at all those little baggies and containers that just makes my frugal heart sing! lol
    I wish I were ...

  5. Getting my Frugalness back - I lost it again

    by , 09-08-2014 at 10:12 AM (My Journey on the Frugal Side of life)
    I have no good excuses for my unnecessary spending this summer. DH and I seem to rationalize our poor spending choices with overtime pay I earn or extra respite hours with homecare clients we pick up. I have nothing tangible to show for the unnecessary spending and we could have put that extra money towards the emergency fund and debt repayment. Most of the wasted spending has been during our summer travels. Eating out, junk food and soda, gasoline, entertainment costs. Don't get me wrong, I've ...
