    Hit the Goodwill sale today. All bottoms were $1! Scored a bunch of shorts and pants for the kids. Also got a brand new ladybug teddybear for my daughter for $1.50 and a real build a bear triceratops for my son for $5. He loves dinosaurs, so that was a real deal!

    There is a local news station here that partners with local restaurants (not chains) and offers $50 gift cards for $25. It's done as an effort to promote local businesses. There are no strings attached to these gift cards like there are through Best Deals and Discounts on the Best Local...

  6. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Why? :thinking: You are giving your dear Uncle Sam an interest free loan! Change your deductions on your W4 and pay your debt sooner if that is what you are doing with your refund. It saves interest over the course of the entire year. You don't know how to claim and get just a little...

    I was going to bring Bella to get her nails trimmed. She fights me so hard. Dh asked how much it cost, and it's $8. He asked how often, I told him when I do it it's 1x a month. He said it would be worth getting the nail grinder. It would pay for itself in 2 months with 2 dogs. Well, I picked...
  13. Dave Ramsey
    After reading Dave's book TMMO I really got excited about my money and getting out of debt. I tried explaining the book to my fiance, but I'm pretty sure everything went in one ear and out the other. I knew I had no chance of getting him to read the book so I went extreme and enrolled us both...

    My dear old Momma bought me a new (refurbished) 5 quart Pro model Kitchen Aid stand mixer!! It is so beautiful, it is the Empire Red color. It's a very early birthday present and I was just blown away! She bought it from Amazon and it was 50% off, great bargain. Now I need to learn to bake...

    The morning mail contained my package from ZenniOptical.com Both pairs of my new glasses are just beautiful, these glasses do not look cheap at all! Momma and DH actually thought the two new pairs looked better than my one expensive ($250) pair that I bought a few years back. Both pairs have...

    I just scored a free bread machine from FreeCycle! I went and picked it up this morning, it was un-used and still in the box!!! I don't know anything about the brand...it is a Toastmaster Bread Box model #1186. I've got a loaf in it right now and so far it seems to be working fine. If anyone...
