  1. Just Tips
    1) Fridge running inefficiently: due to dust build up on the coils next to the motor or ice building up between the freezer and fridge. Both cause the motor to work harder, wasting more electricity. I take off the fridge grill and use an old toothbrush to clean off the dust. Also, putting your...

    I will admit it. I love check-ins! It helps me to keep accountable. I'm home sick today as is my youngest son. We are lazing about our beds today. I plan on finishing up some laundry and a small craft project for my daughter's room. I will probably start my homework assignment for class...

    Started the day with a headache, so not going to work. I am doing laundry and will probably do the ironing later if I feel better. Decided to start back on a strict diet today. I am disgusted with myself for not controlling my health. Time for change!

    Wow, it's already the 7th. And this month is flying right along, as well! Bummer, slow down! I have a couple of more months off from work, and I'm nowhere NEAR ready to go back! I've got mudders and tapers working downstairs this week on finishing the family room and my dd's new bedroom...

    DH had me up too early today. Packed up his food & coffee for the day so he could head in early (and stay late). Already had the Roomba run, a load of laundry done, d/w unloaded and a few bills paid online. Still need to take dad to get his hair cut today, he may or may not want to see a movie...
  6. Food challenges
    I saw this on a blog and thought we could try it on here. I hate wasting food, and throwing money away. Can we add this to challenges? If someone already stated this topic you can direct me to it and erase this post I tried searching the forums before posting. Today I shamefully wasted a pack...

    Stayed up late talking to sis last night - she's in L.A. and has young kids, so when it's 9 p.m. there, it's 11 p.m. here. But that's the only time we can really have good conversation without little ears. So, was a little tired today when I woke up, but threw myself together and got out the...

    Staying up too late means getting up too late - and not getting anything accomplished before work. UGH - must get to bed earlier. Worked all day, but did try to find some people to babysit for. Debating if bf and I want to go swing dancing tonight. Frankly, I'm not feeling it - I'm feeling cold...

    Has anyone else seen the promos for this program? The show description is "Chefs make a multi course meal out of what would have been trash." Looks interesting. My TV listing is showing it as being on at 10:00 tomorrow night on the Food Network. Thought this might be of interest to other...

  13. Frugal Recipes, Leftovers, Budget Meals
    I clean out the fridge each time I grocery shop, and I am always so disappointed by how much food has gone unused and needs to be trown away. I usually plan a dinner for each night, and we often have leftovers. They get put in the fridge for "later" and forgotten. One way for me to tackle this...

    We've been up since 4.30am - combo of poor sleep and anxious about missing DH's appointment at the hospital. Done the dishwasher thing, packed up DH's lunch & coffee, went to his appt, dropped him at work, done breakky, paid bills online and now finally relaxing with a coffee debating on what to...

    Again, holy COW is it cold outside!?!? Today is a "balmy" 16 right now, with about an inch of snow on the ground. It was so pretty to watch last night, but that was before I realized I have yet to get my kids' snowboots for the upcoming season. I think I do this every year. Sigh. Today is...

    Good morning! It FINALLY feels like fall! Woo-hoo! And now it's so foggy out I can hardly see. Oh well, I'll take it. I didn't sleep great again, but I'm up and going, and the coffee's delicious! So the lunches and backpacks are ready to go, and it's almost time to start waking up the...
