    Default Snowstorms are frugal........

    for me at least LOL.

    Dh is staying at his parent's. Instead of driving 50 miles one way back and forth to work for three days, he's driving 15 one way.

    I am stuck so no spending for me!

    No school means no lunch bills, no ball game admission or gas money spent to get there, no money for ds to eat on after an away game.

    I'm really trying to find the silver lining in this mess. Oh and my Colts play in the Super Bowl tomorrow! Go Colts

    I have been very frugal in this snow storm. My electric usage has been limited, not by choice. Our power keeps going out.

    My CAPS play the Pens tomorrow at noon. C-A-P-S, CAPS, CAPS, CAPS.

    Even though I think Peyton Manning is an outstanding quarterback being from Baltimore I have to say, "WHODAT!"

    Since the Colts beat the Ravens I'm not surprised that you are rooting for the Saints. Hoping for a little revenge huh??? LOL

    It still takes willpower to make a blizzard frugal. As long as there is power, there is Amazon.

    Good for you for just hanging out here!

    I could do this as long as I had heat...I like sitting in no light with maybe a candle, fresh cup of coffee...Used to get up about 4:30 in the morning so I could do this...peaceful with just me and my thoughts
    Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.
