My life, my pond, my world

Welcome to my lil private pond of life, love, happiness, frustration, anger, frugality, independence, spending, and thrift shopping ways of life. I have traveled down many paths to get where I am today, some good some not so good, but come and have a lil insight of my daily activities and the normal trials and tribulations of my frugal life. I will keep you posted on my journey as well as probably fill your head with a lot of rambling because I tend to do that when I have so many thought coming out at once. So pick up a few cookies that I have left for you on the table,and grab some nice hot coffee and sit down and enjoy my lil pond called LIFE!.

  1. Just a fun weekend so far,

    After the week I have had, I haven't had the energy to check the bank account today. I kind of skimmed by it yesterday,but we're still waiting for the $105 from BOA. So it should be their by Tuesday, (ugh who knows at this rate).
    So today it was cold, icy, snowy and sleeting out but after making a nice breakfast, we packed up the kids in the car for our day of thrift store shopping. I just get excited about the hunt, I know, i'm strange. So we went to the local Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter ...

  2. My philosophy, my pond, my life

    by , 01-08-2009 at 10:10 AM (My life, my pond, my world)
    I was driving home yesterday from work, and I want to lay this out there about how I feel my life is right now. Picture me next to a big pond with a papercup. I have scooped and scooped all the water out of the pond until the pond is empty and my cup is completely full, (hence the cup overflowing theory) but being I'm a cup half empty kinda girl, the cup I am holding with all this water in (meaning that I would be finally complete) starts to develop a small leak and all the water that I have scooped ...

    So today I told the DP that I just had no energy to deal with the bank account today. I feel so distraught and drained I couldn't muster up the energy. So she has been dealing with the bank today. They have refunded $131.42 and 175.00 but the other charges apparently posted after I got paid and after using my debit card 2 times on Friday, even though I had just got paid and there was money in the account, all these bogus charges that were still pending apparently sent me into overdraft. Because ...

    I didn' t post in a couple of days because my good mood quickly diminshed once I logged onto my bank account. I saw that someone had went on a spending spree with my money. I called the bank and put a stop on my dp's bank card. I called her up and she went to get her wallet and apparently it was stolen out of her vehicle which is parked right in front of our house. They stole the entire thing, drivers' license, social security card, credit cards (over the limit anyways) and her bank card tied to ...

  5. After Christmas Update

    by , 12-29-2008 at 03:24 PM (My life, my pond, my world)
    Well I think I have made it re: my 2008 goal, to keep afloat. We did it, albeit it wasn't easy and even though I just joined this site, it has helped me tremendously. I have stuck to my $40.00 weekly food budget, used stockpile items in my cupboards for meals, and managed to have a pretty good christmas albeit the broken water pipe fiasco the day before Christmas and Christmas morning,(which had me in tears, and goodness knows what the plumbing bill will be), but I tried to have the service fee ...
