  1. Go for what you know

    by , 11-28-2013 at 08:44 PM
    Seeing my first episode of Extreme couponing and I was hooked. I brought all the trappings. The binder, baseball sleeves to keep my coupons in. Tracking sales (or at least trying to). Joining blogs, reward cards and just about anything to stretch a dollar. I also have been tracking how much I am saving. I mean right down to the paper and ink I use to print out my coupons. I must be doing something wrong.

    I have always lived frugal. The majority of my frugal was a necessity. ...

  2. Creative juices.

    by , 07-07-2013 at 05:00 PM
    I have always been creative when it comes to restyling my thrift shop finds. Something in me is compelled to change the item once it is in my possession. From clothes, accessories and furniture. I must put my stamp on it. Lately I have been redesigning some of my old pieces as well as my newly purchases items. My one missing weapon is a sewing machine. Once I purchase that, I will be unstoppable. This will broaden my designing skills even further. Here is my master plan to extend ...
  3. Thankful post, copyied from my FB account

    November 13, Thankfulness and Grateful Post. Today I am thankful for having the warmth and stability of a home. We have worked hard to get our home 6 years ago and have made it ours.

I always said, our house may not be the biggest house in the world, ...
  4. Savings

    by , 10-05-2012 at 10:38 PM
    I started watching TLC's Extreme Couponing. I have used coupons before and had great success(also I was living in bigger city, with a bigger market). Plus the Sunday paper would be available on Saturday night, so I was able to get the jump on the sales on Sunday, bright and early. I was so enthralled with the savings, I made my own notebook, joined several sites, subscribed to All you magazine. It became a life all on its own. I tried to start a couponing club, that tid not go anywhere. ...
  5. It Finally Happened

    by , 06-30-2012 at 10:19 PM
    I am back in my hometown, visiting my family. Naturally, I had to visit some of my old haunts(code word for thrift shop). What joy it was to see there was one right around the corner from my son's apartment. Another joy I experinced was my children have visited thrift shops and have become somewhat frugal. These are the same children who would step foot into a thrift shop. My daughter recently found a table on the street. I wa shocked and the fact that she told of her find on her facebook ...
