  1. Smart move That's a good idea YAYAYAYA AWESOME YAY
  2. Everyone is doing good! The crystal bowl, I agree, use it for whatever makes you happy. Do you like it as a fruit bowl? Or maybe near the front door for sunglasses? Or if you don't like it give it to someone you know would love it and don't feel guilty. I started slowly boxing up stuff thinking I would have a yard sale. I had piles of boxes here and there. I wasnt feeling better, just more stress. Then like KungFuPanda decided the few dollars I would make having a hard sale wasnt worth the time & effort. I loaded all the boxes in the truck and took to goodwill. Man di
  3. If using plastic serving utensils you can write your name on the handle with a sharpie.
  4. The only one that I don't worry about getting the dish back from is my mom. She will send back anything thing give her food in unless I say "toss it when you are done" (aluminum pans). My MIL gets it, guaranteed I won't see it again. SIL will get it back to me IF one of her grown kids don't take off with it 1st.
  5. Can you tell me how you use the pumpkin in these dishes? Does it taste different? I have a ton of pumpkin in the freezer and I have reflux so interesting.
  6. WOW that is high. Around here I can sit anything on the curb and whatever "junkers" don't pick up the city will come pick up for free. And because I live in the city, if I have take a load to the dump it is free. Free being relative, I pay both city and county taxes (so higher taxes). Also if my can is full I can leave can open and sit bag on top or can sit bags next to can and they pick it up (normally, sometimes I get a different driver that won't get out and put it in the empty can after dumping and dump again)
  7. I thought it was something I am doing wrong. I see it isn't only me
  8. Welcome AmandaVT 🙂 Taxes make me stressed. And last year our refund dropped a lot. Worried this year. Small savings today. Instead of buying each of us a bottle of vitamins I bought 1 bottle of complete for us to share. Free supper tonight. Ate with a family member yesterday and they sent home enough for us to have supper tonight.
  9. Definitely need to get back on track with spending or rather NOT spending. A few birthdays this month, niece, nephew and close family friend (child). Hopefully I can find something nice for each on clearance. Also will try to eat out of the freezer as much as possible.
  10. Man this month I fell off the frugal wagon and got run over by it. Gotta get back on that wagon. My mom gave me money for Christmas. She wants me to buy something I want/need that I normally wouldn't buy and not just use it for bills and groceries
  11. I was doing a pretty good in November cleaning out. Took a truck load to goodwill and gave a bunch of hs material away. I wanted to have a yard sale but it didn't work out and I needed the stuff out of my house. After getting rid of that stuff I felt some better and started going through more. Was on a good roll but came to stop getting ready for Christmas. Now I am ready to get back to cleaning out again. Hope to be back with success stories.
  12. I am up and will try to tackle. I really want to go back to bed 😴 ds to appointment bake cookies wrap presents straighten house
  13. Have been reading but not posting. My brain is like "SQUIRREL" I read and while reading it triggers a thought of something I need to look up, add to a list or go do. And there goes my brain. I am trying to be frugal as possible. It would help if I would remember to use ebates. I usually remember sometime AFTER I have ordered. Not good.
  14. Could get an sd card & set all pics & videos to be saved to it. Save phone space and save pics if phone crashes or get a new phone
  15. I don't want to step on anyone's toes but didn't see a new thread. How is everyone doing this month?
  16. At home - crocs (yes with socks). Out & about - walmart version of sketches slip on sneakers. Mine are danskin but now stores have Athletic works brand https://www.walmart.com/ip/Athletic-Works-Women-s-Medium-and-Wide-Width-Knit-Slip-on-Shoe/155930229
  17. We are one of those with yards with several inflatables 😜 Santa, minion, snoopy, penguin etc. And some lights around the yard. I love it and I think at least a few in the neighborhood like it.
  18. I miss the days of dh having insurance through work. Lost his job(place closed) and now working where insurance isn't offered. I am very thankful he has a job. They are hard to come by nowdays but man I miss the insurance and yeah the pay too (took a HUGE pay cut with job loss)
  19. Jean - sorry you are sick & hurting. Hope you can get relief Pink & Green - hope all goes smoothly I have been slacking in housekeeping & meals. Nothing is gross dirty (kept up with laundy, dishes & bathrooms) and nobody is starving but I am not doing the extra I need to be doing. meal plan present list work on junk spot
  20. Hope you get the interview Scrap Tree has been up here 2 weeks. Was the best day to put it up as it takes forever to put up. Big tree, old tree, individual branches to be shaped & then all the lights. Yep takes a while. I like the slowing down idea very much. Every Christmas I say "next year I am going to be better prepared, the house cleaned & gifts bought early" Never happens. Then I stress and nearly kill myself trying to get everything done. This year is no different. The house is not clean, presents are not bought. But this year I am going to give myself permissi
