  1. Update

    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 ...

  2. Lazy about blogging

    by , 09-18-2013 at 02:09 PM
    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 ...

  4. staycation day

    by , 09-06-2013 at 11:23 AM (My Journey on the Frugal Side of life)
    When DH gets home from work at 11 am we are heading on another road trip in the next county. We will be using our GPS to explore new parks, lakes, hiking trails with our Norwegian visitor. It will be a day trip.
    DH set up double payments for the next loan repayment we will be working on. We should not miss the money in the budget because it is a snowball amount from the loan we just paid off.
    Hoping DD and DS deliver their payments soon as the first week of the month is always tight ...

  5. It's time for a diet.

    by , 09-03-2013 at 02:10 PM
    I've changed my mind about our menu this week. I need to lose weight. While I would never tell her, my dd needs to lose about 20-25 also.

    So tonight will be crab stuffed portabella mushroom, roasted asparagus, and corn on the cob. Making the crab stuffing low calorie and low carb as much I can. Using very little cream cheese (maybe 1/4 what recipes usually call for). Since she eats at about 3:30 she needs another meal later. Going to make smoothies. Got some almond milk unsweetened, ...
