    http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/living/2008678892_depression28m.html My inner frugal person has always loved Depression-era stories. They inspire me to live a more simple, thankful life. We have a lot to learn from this older generation; we'd better listen carefully, they won't be...

    We survived the storm with compared to everyone else in Texas very little damage. We lost our storage shed to the top of our big oak tree that came crashing down on it. Lost another oak tree and have limbs all over the two acres. Clean up is not going to be fun. We where with out power...
  3. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    We managed to stay afloat with minimal credit use during dh 4 weeks off due to surgery. Today his short term disability came in!! WOOHOO! So, I have an EF of $800 now, and paid down 1700 of debt.

    Well, after working all day to clean the house and make two large pans of Lasagna it is finally over. I had the Senior football player Thursday night dinner at our house. We had 16 of them here. They are all great kids. I honestly thought I had made too much food. But, they had other plans...

    It wasn't too bad, but thank God our hearing time was 9 AM. The trustee said they normally have 50 cases a day, but were hearing 700! Everyone filed before the 10/17 law change I suppose. One trustee would call out a group of people at a time - these were people the main trustee did not have...

  8. Education
    I was incredibly nervous at first, but once I actually got going I calmed down and did pretty good. A couple of them asked questions in the middle of the speech, which covered stuff I had intended for the end, but all in all it went well. The instructor said I did well, and only had 2 things...

    If you lived as a child in the 60s or the 70s looking back, it's hard to believe that we have lived as long as we have.......... As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a pickup truck on a warm day was always a special treat. Our baby cribs...

    I decided to do my m/bedroom different. We don't have the cash right now for wallpaper and I have plenty of paint left over, so I'm painting it all instead. While I was painting I was thinking of some of the things I learnt over the years in surviving while poor. I thought I would share...
