  1. Woohoo !

    I managed some savings at the grocery store and was able to conserve my budget while beginning a meager starter stockpile. Baby steps, baby steps. I'm getting so much info and tips from the forums and by this time next year, I'll be priding myself on what I've done. Phooey, I'm already pumped !!

    Yep, time is just flying by and it's so weird that in a couple of weeks it will be Thanksgiving. Things have been very busy my way..with tons of things going on between working, weekend projects its very easy to get wrapped up in things.
    Plus things at work are kinda on the weird path. They decided to streamline a lot of girls in our office, meaning getting rid of a bunch of positions, all while keeping the same amount of attorneys 10 in our office. They have givin our two paralegals ...

    I'm on week three of my coupon strategy and only one week to go to see if this works. Those of you who regularly clip them will laugh at my naivete.I need suggestions and tips , so I methodically check forums for ideas.
    Now I'll try and organize all these bits of paper !

But as a mom who survived going to college with only a dollar or two in my wallet, I've learned to live doing things on my own and be wise when it comes to buying food that are very affordable but healthy, food that will meet my body's nutritional needs. It has become my habit to look closely at the labels to know the ingredients and its percent nutrition ...
