  1. Spend spend spend

    by , 12-01-2011 at 01:15 PM (My life, my pond, my world)
    Well the month of stress is upon us. I made it through Thanksgiving and Black Friday, although I went over my budget by 70.00 it made me angry because this week has been very tight until payday tomorrow.

    We did a impulse purchase at Lowes as they have this “woodstove” type Electric Heater which was normally 99.00 which I was planning on purchasing on 11/23/11 because I had a $10.00 off coupon on anything over $50.00 but decided against it when I saw the Black Friday Ad had it for ...

    I am back. I actually had Murphy working overtime. I got sick , didn't control my blood sugar and had about 6 nicks from shaving that went into abscesses on my legs and was in the hospital for a week with DKA and had 2 surgical debridements. So I am watching the blood sugar very closely. I am having home health for the wounds and IV antibiotics. I am not worrying about debt too much right now. I lost about a month of pay but the health is more important. I also lost 10 more pounds being sick. I ...

    Three years since I have joined and am I any more frugal? Not really.

    I was looking at my two blog posts where I can see what I have in my traincase, and its a lot of the same things I had back then! I purged a lot, but I still have some of the same stuff (in a new-ish traincase) and I think it may be time to let go of it and just keep some of my more recent purchases that I actually use.

    Just to be transparently honest, I think that my spending is related to much ...
  5. Organized just a little

    Ok, so I do not want to be at work today, I feel like I have tons of stuff to get accomplished at home and this place is just cramping my lifestyle. Albeit it does pay the bills but still…

    Over the weekend I got my coupon binder in hand, finished cutting all the coupons and now I’m sorting all of them by category and I have 3 pages of my binder complete. I know need to bring some lil black binder clips into play, to attach the newspaper flyers and I will be ready for take off. ...
