    It's been that kind of weekend. My computer died, hard drive is trash. I lost my glasses, had to buy a new pair yesterday. Then today I slipped on the stairs, landed on my breastbone on the corner of the cast iron railing where the stairs switch back, that's going to leave a mark. Then while...

    It happened on Boxing day, she is in the hospital. She is 78 and has already undergone surgery. I have barely slept, I am so worried about her. She has very bad osteoporosis. Please pray that she will heal completely and quickly. And please make sure you get enough calcium.
  4. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    So yes, I'll admit it: I fell off of the wagon. I think I broke a few bones and severed my purse strings in the process, but overall, it's recoverable. I have good health care. ;) In the process of renovating the house, we fell pretty hard. We used up all of the money that we'd been paying...
  5. Baking Breads
    I have made 3 loaves of bread in my machine with a strip of packets that I purchased at Kroger of "active dry yeast" (store brand) and all have turned out fine. I bought a 2 lb pack of "Fleischmann's Instant Yeast" from Sam's Club and my first loaf with it is baking right now. It rose...

  7. Stockpiling
    Stockpiling is such an essential in a frugal lifestyle. But I'd never really considered it seriously beyond just "stocking up" on whatever was on sale. But since I've been inspired (and so very well informed) by all of you on how to practically go about it, I've gotten really serious about it...

    I've fallen off the wagon. My MasterCard balance is **huge** for me (over $6,000) I cannot pay the statement balance due Jan. 4, 2009 (Over $2,000). I haven't let this happen in almost 10 years. I want to kick myself. I have a payment of $1,000 scheduled for the 1st of the year.

    We are leaving today for our trip.....and I took my son to school to talk with his teacher. On the way out, I was holding my daughter....and down we went, smack on the ice. I landed on my left hip and side, protecting her, her face hit the ice and it's all scraped up on the left side of her...
  12. Discount Stores
    So last week, I was doing my regular shopping at Aldi's. I buy the majority of my groceries there for the week, and I usually spend between $50-$75 depending on the week. I don't think I have ever spent over $100 there. So anyhoo, as I started bagging my groceries the family behind me was...

    Gosh I have really fallen off the frugal wagon. I shop almost everyday, now mind you 90% of what I buy is for resale in my booth but gezz. Since I started my own little career I have been on a thrift store / yard sale binge. I'm afraid that if I don't go I will miss out of the deal of the...

    Finally back on board after hubby's vacation. We went to the Adirondacks for 5 days, DH's family has a camp up there, so very frugal, just had to bring up our regular groceries for the week. The kids loved fishing and swimming everyday, and they didn't miss TV, or computers at all!! We did go...

    I had such good intentions to live a frugal 2008, but I have fallen off the wagon big time. I just had baby #3 and the end of my pregnancy brought unexpected expenses. We have racked up new debt and my income (I work from home) has dropped slightly due to the fact with new baby my work time is...

    Yep...opened the mail today and one envelope was from my doctor's office. I thought it would be a bill for an appointment I had a couple of weeks ago--you know...them sending me a bill for the amount that wasn't covered by my insurance. But NO! It was a refund check for $25...the amount of my...

    Mattie & Brittany are going on a ski trip with our church. The church had some ski clothes the kids could borrow. Brittany found some to wear. Mattie, unfortunately, is built like her momma and that ain't a good thing. But she did find a snow suit that would have sufficed. But no I couldn't let...

    I can't believe it....it has been a long time since I hit the floor. I went outside to bring in the dog water bowl (our dog Max :paw: with congestive heart failure is VERY sick right now and probably doesn't have much time left) so I was leaving him in the bathroom in his bed while I came to...
