  2. $25/Week challenge, week 3 shopping

    I spent $50.92 today. Pretty close to our $25 per person per week allowance, but because of other purchases this month we are up to $174 of our $200 for the month, and I know the thanksgiving turkey is going to take $20 of our remaining $26 next week and I will need my $4 milk too.

  5. Thankful - This Thanksgiving

    Stop right now and think of five things in your life for which you are thankful.

    start with life itself, the beauty of the world around you, the opportunity to learn
    and grow. Consider your family, friends, people who sincerely care about you,
    your work, your faith, your home, your community, the joys you've known,
    the things you have to look forward to.
