  1. What's for dinner
    I was looking at some of these old threads and saw about a month ago someone had made chili and turned it into taco salad. Adding homemade salsa to it. That's what I'm doing. Sounds good and I'm not really getting into the chili, anyway. Made made minestrone earlier in the week and can't...

  3. Frugal Friday
    Sitting here sipping my coffee with my dog and cat. Nothing much going on today. My children and grandchildren start arriving this evening. I've got to make my way out in the cold to get some extra toilet paper and laundry detergent, but not until later. Preparing spinach lasagne for dinner.
  4. Saving Saturday
    Today I feel like going to the thriftstore and looking around. Trying to get myself to wait until Monday or just not at all. Have been doing really well lately not going but for some reason I have the urge to go. Hopefully I can keep myself busy cleaning and purging. What is everyone else up...
  5. Frugal Friday
    ahhh..... relaxing a bit this afternoon. Busy week of Christmas prep. :relieved: Today I have finished the Bailey's marshmallows (3 batches) I made yesterday (they set up overnight). Cut them up and chilled. A request from BIL. I also finished my Buckeyes----about 200 of them, rolled...

  12. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    What did you buy just because you wanted it, not because you needed it? How much money did you spend on little luxuries, or googaws, or fast food, that could have gone toward savings, debt reduction, or other things that could change the quality of your life in a material way? If your purchase...
