    This weekend, we bought the boys REALLY NICE used mattresses for 50.00 from a friend (they even delivered them to us!) each (nice twin pillow top mattresses). In fact, my son told me that his new bed was almost as comfortable as mine!!!

    So, I've listed the old ones on freecycle and I've had a few bites, but they are still sitting in the dowstairs living area waiting for a serious taker....
    I also listed an entertainment center that has been sitting in our garage for several months and a 21 inch TV that we NEVER use. Those both left my home today!!!! I hope the mattress sets leave soon too!!

    Ok, I tried to post to this thread 3 times yesterday and every time something happened and it didn't take. Guess the computer doesn't want me to admitt defeat. . I knew adding DH and the boys would make it a CHALLENGE. On Sat DH was given a 27" TV as a "tip". The guy was going to ditch it since he got a flat panel. It was in much better shape than the one we had in the den so I couldn't really tell hubby no and sound like a reasonable human being. Instead we agreed ours would go to his co-worker (instead of as a back-up which he likes to keep everything as)

    Technically I guess this puts me out of the running :thmbsdwn:, but I'm going to see if I can make it the rest of the week since it was more of an exchange.

    Also, got two more boxes (Office Depot paper boxes) with stuff in them for DH's co-worker.

    Nothing in yesterday.

    Sticking with this for the week so far. Worked on Saturday so no shopping. Stayed home Sunday and today so no spending on anything. I'm working tomorrow, but Wednesday is errand day so will need to concentrate on buying only food and a couple of cleaning supplies we need.

    Monday and Tuesday went well. I spent Monday staining furniture and 12+ hours at work yesterday.

    I'm off today and have some projects to work on.
