    Does anyone know where, I could get donated yarn? I crochet scaves and afghans or the needy, and need some really colorful yarn. Also, colors for boys scarves and afghans.

  2. Hardcore Saving

    In less that a year, I will be moving out-of-province with my bf and two kids. It is going to be a big move for us, especially since it will mean many lifestyle changes. I am going back to school to study Business Marketing and Management. Currently, I am a Bakery/Restaurant Manager. I hope to one day open my own store.

    So, this move means I have to bank a substantial amount of money. The only way to do that is with some hardcore saving. This is what I have done so far:

    In April my maternal grandmother passed. She was 93 years here on this planet. She was another amazing woman in my life. I've been blessed to know many.
    Today I recieved a check from her estate for savings bonds she collected over her life. Its a small check of just over $4,000.00 but when you consider that she never held a paying job after she married my grandfather in 1930, its amazing. She was the meaning of frugal. She wasn't born to or with money and at age eight lost her mother. Her ...
