    So my 1st (aka-most hated) credit card is halfway paid off! :cheer4: And with the plan I am working will be PIF by April!

  2. Drugstore & Grocery Store Deals/Product Reviews
    I bought a bunch of the Valentine m+m's, and the cherry cordial hershey kisses, for Easter, at 1/2 off original price because they were 'Valentine's candies'. My 5+ 2 yo's could care less what colors their candies are! Also got 2 of the 'giant' hershey kisses for stocking stuffers- I assume...

    I spent 1/2 hour purging my closet of excess short sleeve t-shirts (I have a serious fetish with t-shirts...) and went through the side closet shelf of short sleeve t-shirts, and the extra stack of them that began on the top box under the closet shelf. The shelf in the side closet is still as...

  12. Just Tips
    My very frugal aunt and uncle taught me this trick. Empty (paper) 1/2 gallon containers work really well for freezing. Open it fully at the top, wash it out, refill, and fold the top in flat to seal. Works especially well for soups, stews, tomato sauce, etc. Any other ideas?

    ~Everything went well with the C-section and my Sis-in-law Tiffany and the baby are doing fine! He was delivered yesterday morning and was 21 inches long and 9.5 lbs. We wondered if they could have gotten her due date wrong. Her daughter was just 7.5 lbs. Strange. I won't see pics of the baby...

    Having a vacation day today and taking my kids to the ocean to play on the beach. Meditating in the sand while the sun sparkled off the ocean waves and having a chance to be silent and peaceful. The wind was cold and quick but that allowed the kids, the dog, and I to have the whole beach to...

    If you haven't checked out www.restaurant.com. It's worth a look. I paid $10 for a $25 gift certificate to a local restaurant. They give you a 15% discount on your first purchase with them. I think they also might offer referral discounts. I just bought three, and I'm looking forward to...

    Of hair! I follow the Native American tradition of cutting my hair only when I'm grieving. So 10 1/2 inches of hair came off this afternoon, and the pony tail is ready to send to Locks of Love. This is the shortest my hair has been in ages. I cut off 16 inches last year, so this time my hair...
