    Today was not a frugal day at all! ACK! However, we did only spend $19 in absolute non-essentials.....still OMG...not frugal.

    We did hang laundry and eat in for all our meals though.

    daughter baked two loaves of bread
    baked two apple pies from "almost about to go" apples
    grilled

    lots of water.

    Question: I'm knew to the board. Where do I find about about the tickers and the change jar/debt record stuff.

    I'm excited to join the group and hope I can be of help sometimes!

    ~Instead of buying a new dresser for my newest ds, I went through one I already had and storage boxes I already had instead of buying new ones of those and cleaned them out. Freecycled a lot of stuff I'll never use.
    ~Freecycled things insteading of driving to donate them.
