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. Spend spend spend

    Well the month of stress is upon us. I made it through Thanksgiving and Black Friday, although I went over my budget by 70.00 it made me angry because this week has been very tight until payday tomorrow.

    We did a impulse purchase at Lowes as they have this “woodstove” type Electric Heater which was normally 99.00 which I was planning on purchasing on 11/23/11 because I had a $10.00 off coupon on anything over $50.00 but decided against it when I saw the Black Friday Ad had it for ...

    Ok, so I do not want to be at work today, I feel like I have tons of stuff to get accomplished at home and this place is just cramping my lifestyle. Albeit it does pay the bills but still…

    Over the weekend I got my coupon binder in hand, finished cutting all the coupons and now I’m sorting all of them by category and I have 3 pages of my binder complete. I know need to bring some lil black binder clips into play, to attach the newspaper flyers and I will be ready for take off. ...
  3. Coupons and whatnot!

    Wow, where does time go…

    As I look back on my prior blogs, it seems like I haven’t been here in like months, then it skips to a year prior…so to get everyone up to speed, I originally started out working for 2 attorneys, due to the alignment I was then assigned 2 more attorneys and now I have been assigned a 5th attorney due to my efficiency…WTH??? Yes, my thoughts exactly, anyways I thought I would let you know what I’ve been up to. I think I now am addicted to couponing. I have ...
  4. I keep rising from the dead!!

    My last prior two posts have me being risen from the dead, so I thought i would go for a third time. Yes I am still alive, and yes I am still being frugal.

    I am right now hoping my tax return gets deposited tomorrow since everyone I know has been having problems with either deposit, or their status being changed to a check, so at this point who knows...all I know is my trust issues with the IRS right now are very thin and not worthy thats for sure.

    I did manage to ...

    Wow, time for an update, I noticed I haven't been on here since May and my lil yard sale, so now is time to update. Our Williamsburg trip was a blast as usual, then we skipped all the way through summer, where I wook the kids down to Wildwood just for a little mini vacation weekend it was much needed and everyone had a blast. School has started again and they were oh so happy to get back into the grind, my son is now in 8th grade and my daughter has started 6th grade so this should prove to be ...
