    Needless to say she wouldn't take them. They were HUGE. I ground them up and poured them in scrambled eggs when they were cooking. She went NUTS! I swear it was only a matter of a few days before I could tell a difference with her back legs/hips.

    No wasted money so far this month! We haven't gone anywhere except this past Saturday was our Mothers of Multiples Club's Christmas Party, which was about 45 minutes away. It is free (and includes free breakfast- donuts, coffee, fruit, juice, yay!) and we shouldn't go over our gas budget for the trip since we will be home a lot this month anyway. Plus it was a nice, free, treat and the kids got to get their pictures with Santa, which is also free! No expensive mall Santas here!

    Oh here is a little tip if you have little ones, see if your local Walgreens will have a Santa photo shoot day, ours always does and its only like $5 for a bunch of pictures!

    $0.94 on a Maple Dip doughnut from Tim Hortons (because I had to break a $20 for DS8 to have bus fare tomorrow).

    Love the idea of this thread!

    Dec. 1 - grocery shopping, but stuck to my list! In fact, couldn't find everything. No wasted money.

    Dec. 2 - spent $15.50 of my allowance on a giving journal. I could have used a three ring binder and loose leaf, but I wanted something nice I could keep long term....hmmm...wasted money.

    Dec. 3 - no wasted money

    Dec. 4 - no wasted money

    Dec. 5 - picked up supplements I needed. No wasted money there.
