    Heading home in a couple of weeks. FL is hot & home is warm, too!! What's up with that? This was our first snowbird experience. We came down in Jan. The ole' camper got us here without a problem. Surely, it will get us back ok!! Wish I could give out frugal advice by the bushel, but, FL is...
  2. Stockpiling
    So, my husband is self employed and we never know how much money is going to come in/ or when it will actually get to us. This month, the companies that owe us money just haven't been paying. We've been able to pay our bills with absolutely nothing left over for such things as gas and groceries...

    When we were there my mom gave me some 9 mm films that used to belong to my aunt (my godmother) who passed away in 1968 when I was 10. Dh took them to a company that would put them onto a DVD. We got it back today and have just watched it. A film about my aunt's last trip abroad before she...

    Okay, so going to any medical appts generally makes me nervous. I am a high anxiety person. So, my first mammogram is scheduled for the 30th. I turned 40 last July so it's time to get it done. But I hear so many people say how awful they are :nerv2: A lady I work with was just diagnosed and...

  7. Food challenges
    I have tried and tried to do the pantry challenges and eat what is here. I have tried to have a grocery budget, but with a baby who is adding baby food to the tune of at least $30 a month (those stinking jars are about 83 cents each and she usually eats 2 jars a day), I can't seem to do it. I...
  8. Meal planning
    Today I am starting my own challenge: spend no more than $15 a week on food. I must say it is a bit daunting especially because here in Australia :sun: meat can be pretty pricey. Why am I doing this? 1) I really want to pay off my car before Christmas and 2) finally start saving for a house...

  10. Meal planning
    If you have about $5 left in your food budget, and are out of fruits and veggies (other than a few bananas), what will stretch the farthest? I always buy fresh, but should I be considering frozen at this point? It is just me and DH, and he usually eats dinner at work. Thanks!

    Hey all, Embarassed/ashamed to admit we lived the first 19 yrs of marriage without doing a budget or saving a penny and both of us used our credit cards often. Well life threw a curveball in 2010 (job/house loss) needless to say we woke up real fast! My wife was let go (19 yrs working) worse...

    This is nothing for some of you I know but for us it is kind of a big deal. We have not paid for a meal out, a soda, coffee, deli food, frozen pre-made anything etc in a few weeks that we paid for. We usually go out once a week plus I occasionally pick up a take and bake pizza. We were out...

    My Mom was just diagnosed with breast cancer. For a few days we thought it could be in her bones because of hot spots on her bone scan. Thank goodness it is not in her bones but, the waiting is horrible. It is amazing after that roller coaster Just breast cancer doesn't seem so bad. Ironic...

    Tomorrow we are off on vacation to NY. It seems like just a couple of weeks ago that I said that dh had 'tweaked' the budget so that we could go and tomorrow is the big day.
