    Freezer challenge week 1 report

    My challenge: https://www.frugalvillage.com/forums/blog.php?b=2823

    So far so good. The ravioli is long gone. I have started on the box of popsicles. They got half melted at some point, and I doubt most kids would eat them, but I am fine with it. And it's my own fault they are in the shape they are. I also started on the sausage and egg patties. There are 3 left.

  4. No-Spend Summer

    by , 05-19-2009 at 12:11 PM (Living Frugal, Not Cheap)
    My goal at the end of January was to get $5000 into the EF before June and I reached that goal earlier this month.... only to end up spending most of it on emergencies. The air conditioner and my dental work took a big chunk out of it, so I will continue to save towards the $5000 total with the rest of this month's paychecks.
