  1. Random acts of Kindness

    by , 10-10-2013 at 10:48 PM (My Journey on the Frugal Side of life)
    "Carry out a random act of kindness with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you."
    Princess Diana

    I challenge all villagers to commit to one random act of kindness a week.
    Together we can make a difference in others lives, in our communities, and in the world.

    So I figure I can post about once a month. How sad is that!

    I have been busy. I sent 22 rugs off with one of the shops I sell through. I am currently hooking more rugs for the second shop. Then it is onto hooking rugs for myself to sell.

    I am still tutoring four mornings a week. Some students are more high maintenance than others. And more demanding. One student will stop coming once the snow comes. Her husband will need the car for ...

    Debt repayment continues to be our goal. I found this site 7 months ago and it has continued to be a source of inspiration, motivation and education to spend more frugally, to save and to snowball debt payments.
    Financially I found out today I received a 58 cent per hour raise. I'm happy with this as our census has been low and I thought no raises would be given. I'm planning to put 25 cents per hour worked towards debt repayment, this would be an extra $40 a month. Able to work some extra ...
  5. Lazy about blogging

    I've gotten so down. I haven't worked in almost 2 weeks. Just don't feel well. I need to get up and work no matter how I feel. Lying around in bed isn't helping me, either physically nor financially. Going to be rough making the bills the next few months. I had to pay double insurance this month to catch up from when I added dd to the policy. Also, need to pay dd's $290 senior package next week. Pictures were a few weeks ago. Senior pictures are crazy expensive. Won't be any groceries bought ...
