    I started back to school(work for me) this past week. I am now on the roller coaster ride of savings and more savings. Here is my break down. Walgreens will usually have their Arizona Teas on sale 2 for a $1.oo. I will usually buy enough for the whole month. This keeps me from buying pop...

    According to a news report, a certain private Catholic school was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine provided it was of a natural or neutral skin tone, but after they put on their...

She is 9 or 10 and in the 1st grade. Her younger sister was "labeled" the same way. So they held her back...

    I know this is a big area we could $ave on in our house. Plus I believe my kids wouldn't be as hungry when they get home if they have enough to eat and don't have to wolf it down so fast because they're standing in the lunch line waiting. I just have to learn to get better at this lunch-making...

    That didn't take long at all :(. I hate that he's miserable. I hate how he already has to miss and I hate how expensive it gets when the cooties start spreading in the house.

    So on July 30th my daughter was attacked by a dog. (I had posted about that in another thread). So for the last month we have been dealing with the ramifications of that--stitches, lotions, hats, no sun for a length of time etc.... Then 2 weeks later my grandmother died peacefully in her...

    I know there have already been a few threads about school supplies, how expensive they are, etc. We did our supply shopping this week, and I am just absolutely peeved. One of the supplies on DS's list is a particular type of notebook that is not sold anywhere reasonable. The ONLY place this...

    One of our local thrift stores just had a wonderful back to school clothing sale to help with the cost of getting kids ready. They took up a special collection of clothing and then put it all out on tables for 99cents each. What a blessing for the community!! The place was packed, but since...
