    I have never been a big fan of Thanksgiving and Xmas. It seems like I never had enough money to take advantage of Black Friday, Mudane Monday and any day of the weeks leading up to Xmas. Being single parent and low paying jobs kept me from buying presents for my children and family. During...

    I was at Dominick's tonight, picking up the final groceries I need before my family arrives and the clerk pulled out the Dominick's ad and typed in a code and I got $10 off my $13 ham! It turns out they had a special going where if you buy X amount of groceries you get $10 off a ham. I wouldn't...

    I don't enjoy Xmas. I really wish it would go away. However, my husband (as some have read) is like a little kid, so "that time of the year" is his favorite time. He loves giving presents! I'm like that as well - I love giving, but I couldn't care less about receiving. My question to you...

    Ok, I need your help :genie: My FIL is one of the hardest people to buy for that I have EVER met. If I ever tried to MAKE him a gift, he would probably be disgusted. He has expensive taste, but only when it suits HIM. For example, he went out and bought a brand new Lexus SUV... and when he...

    Went to go stock up on (2) fish oil tablets that was on sale at CVS. Right now they have what is leftover of x-mas items on sale for 90% off. So ended up with box of cards (now they are on sale?), gift tag stickers, and some lucky bamboo. Total came to $7.74 which included a $4 extra care...
  9. Secondhand Shopping
    This year has been financially trying, to say the least, with a family crisis that lead to my oldest (11) living with my father, 3 hours away. Aside from the emotional strain for everyone from the situation, the financial strain was a trial to say the least (I not only no longer GET child...

    Well, I walked to CVS thinking I could buy some cards for next year on sale. They have signs up saying 50% off Christmas items. So I figured the cards I picked out would be on sale. Plus I only brought $5 with me to make sure I didn't buy to much. Get to the register and they rang up regular...

    Well, I give up on trying to post a pic on here, but here's a link to my facebook (it's a public link, so you don't need an FB account to view the photo). I totally just threw these jammies together tonight! I didn't think I'd get her jammies done in time, since I've been so busy the past...
