  1. 1st blog post

    by , 10-23-2008 at 04:20 PM
    I'm trying out "my blog" to prepare for the $25/week food challenge. I'm real excited about it becuase I've been living almost exclusively on my pantry/stockpile for the past month. I know I can make great meals for the $25. Can't wait to start!
  2. Christmas Has Come Early

    A week or so ago, my bf and I were discussing Christmas. He asked me what I want for Christmas this year and I answered " one of those metal thingys that go across the bathtub so that you can have a candle, a book and your bath supplies within easy reach....and a bath pillow."
    Then, three days ago, I quit my job.

  4. starting anew today

    Well, it's been a while since I've been on here, so hello. Last week I had a big birthday and it got me to thinking. We're both in our forties now and it's time we get super serious with our finances. We have paid off alot in the last couple months (small CC bills) but there's still a way to go. In reading everyones challenges I've decided that even though the month is more than half over it's not too late to start my own.

  5. Thoughts on stockpiling

    by , 10-19-2008 at 05:54 PM
    Wow! I've been lax with posting regularly on my blog.
    It's been over 3 months!

    I need to get better in this area!

    For the next two months I will be getting things in order for Cricketlegs year's worth stockpiling challenge.
    I think this is a great time to begin this and I've wanted to add to my continuing stockpile since moving into our house back in March.

    Getting our completely emptied stockpile going, has been a bit harder than I expected. ...
