    I am debating the purchase of a Kitchen Aid Mixer. Here is the story: I did not feel like doing any baking for well over a year.

  7. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    It took 3 transfers to different departments but I found out when I pay the remainder of my cell phone bill $84 (which I am hoping to pay by Friday) that I can get out of my cell contract and switch to pay as you go. Yeah that means one bill down, and less to pay.

    I went to Krogers yesterday, and used $135 in coupons. My total bill that I owed was $235. That was quite a great deal. It took awhile but was worth it. DH couldn't believe it.

    Finally, we are getting some rain here in VA. :cheer4: I can't remember the last time we had rain. Everything was looking so dry and dead. Already I can see the grass is greening up & my plants are perking up. Now normally rain would make for a miserable day, but today it has me excited.
