    Default Frugal Friday!

    Good morning ladies! I'm up and at 'em early again-that DD leaving for the bus stop at 6:30-UGH! Today I have to run errands again, but hope to be productive.

    Take Courtney to the Ped for checkup *DONE
    Argue with Ped about bill I got from them-I have an HMO and they are balance billing me-I don't think so.... *DONE
    Buy fruit and veges at the wholesale market *DONE
    Wonder bread thrift store to stock up *DONE
    Kmart-buy new blind for DD's room
    take DH shirts to get printed for fall softball league
    clean out van *DONE
    buy ham from the pork butcher-can get a soup ham for $1.30 a pound-we get several meals from it, then I give the bone to my mom and she makes bean soup-very frugal purchase!
    Climb Mt. Laundry
    straighten up house
    Feed and change baby *DONE
    eat breakfast

    Whew! I have a long list! Wish me luck!

    Morning girls!

    Get Gas
    Post Office
    Library
    Few Groceries & WIC
    Dishes
    Laundry
    Water inside plants

    We had a nasty storm last night and it still looks pretty dreary out there, so we'll be hanging close to home today.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Happy Friday!

    Today we have a potluck lunch at work (I got to use my GS crock pot!)

    I went to Costco last night and soent $190!!! But I bought TONS of meat. I got a huge thing of pork chops, steak, stew meat and ground beef. I plan to do a lot of cooking this weekend before I leave for my business trip next Tuesday.

    I am looking forward to going to GS's tomorrow morning. I am ready to find some bargains!!!

    Hope you all have a great day!

    Not a very frugal day for me. You'd think the rainy weather would
    have kept me in but I had errands I HAD to run.

    Have been gone about 7 hrs straight so I am tired now.

    Will take it easy the rest of the day/evening but will make myself
    do a load of clothes & file the mountain of papers on my desk!

    B = toast, cheese, water
    L = sandwich, chips, Dr Pepper
    D = broiled shrimp, potato salad, bread

    Have a good weekend everyone!

    I worked until 1:15 so I put a chicken in the Crock Pot before I left. I also did some laundry, vacuumed, cleaned the cat box and walked Gypsy twice. I am bushed and it's only 4 p.m.!
