    After all these years......in truth I have only liked blueberries in pies, pancakes or muffins. I bought some recently because they were such a good deal and have been eating them with my cereal in the morning.

    I guess I am throwing this out here to see what the general opinion is on how I should have handled this or if I did the o.k thing. Situation: Gallon of milk was on sale with an extra sticker on several jugs for 50 cents off. I checked the sell by date and it was today. I purchased a jug...

    Sunday morning. I'm sitting in the recliner surfing with my laptop and drinking coffee. DH was sitting on the couch practicing his acoustical guitar playing - he started teaching himself to play several months ago. His playing is improving and he was strumming something particularly pretty...

    I was packing away the cookies I baked today today to take out to the garage when I hear a fox just outside our back door. Our big cat is outside and the fox being so close worries me, so I go out the side door and call for the cat. The fox hears my voice and loses it, if you've never heard a...

    I took the kids to the local Santa on Saturday morning (free I might add with cocoa and cookies thrown in). My 6yo asked for a stuffed unicorn, 8yo asked for a used (lol, yes he specified) ds game and my 11 yo (who came to help with 2yo) asked for socks. Santa and his elves were shocked and...

  20. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I had a real dumb moment and missed the new interest rate, and I have a high balance on this card. If I go by balances, I'll end up paying nearly $3000 more in interest. However, if I pay it first, I'd save that $3000. It doesn't lengthen or shorten the amount time paid, we're looking at...
