    I have started the new job working for the state so Mad Hen and I have something in common now. I will probably have to do a second job as the pay is extremely low for my position, but we are saving quite a bit on health insurance premiums. I am still working on that debt free thing and will update my signature. I have continued to rotate my pantry and due to my decrease of income. Smart shopping is a priority and almost a necessity. The gardening is not doing as well on some items and others are ...

    Well, I have mostly organized my room- walk in closet, drawers. I went thru my clothes and have lost enough weight that I am down at least a size in pants. I did join the gym(under $10 a month) I am clearing the pantry and getting ready to sell some items. I wanted to get organized because once I start work again I will not have time. I am praying about the job. I have a tentative offer but the pay is much lower here in the Sacramento area. I really do not want to travel but may have to in order ...

    I have filed for unemployment for the first time in my life. I still have not received any disability pay, so I sold some more gold and silver, another $3300, to help cover expenses. So for the year over 13k in gold and silver. I am getting low on items, so not much jewelry and coins left for an emergency fund. Now that I can lift over 5 pounds, I am going thru the antiques to list on ebay or a space rental at an antique store. I have a harp brass music stand from the 1880's and a French stool along ...

    I had my youngest daughter help me wrap the presents for the school and also give me advice for the 15 and 17 year old clothes choices. We stuck with the $30 dollar sweaters as they are almost like outerwear and looked better than some of the cheaper ones. My husband helped me deliver to the school. The younger kids ended up getting 2 full outfits each. He was happy that I was able to get them so much for the amount I spent. I also found quality merchandise from Carter and Osh Kosh. My big project ...

    I am getting my PICC line out today. I have big plans on all the things I am going to do. Not being able to lift over 5 pounds has put a severe cramp in my style. My purse weighs more than 5 pounds(LOL) We signed up for a family at church sponsored thru a local school, single mom with 5 girls. My challenge has been to get them gifts $40 limit for each one and they listed clothes and books. I found sweaters on sale for $25-30, That really blows the budget for the other things. I did get some classic ...
