  1. 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.
  2. 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)
  3. 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
  4. 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 permission to let things slide and enjoy the season. (ok I am still stressing about buying gifts $$ but the rest can slide)
  5. sorry about all the things wrong. I totally get it. I have a long list like that too. I don't know how much books are at Costco but snapfish has been running deals.
  6. Thanks for all the ideas ☺️
  7. Trying hard to cut back this Christmas. Actually trying to cut back on amount spent on gifts but still give thoughtful wanted gifts. Struggling with this. I love giving gifts but this year money is super tight. I am very stressed about some other stuff going on & add trying to find gifts. I am about to lose it. (still no clue what to get most people on my list) But I did make another meal from leftovers and 1 can veggie. So that was a basically free meal for 4. That goes in the good category.
  8. Yep this. Except there is always a couple family members who don't buy for anyone.
  9. I know nothing about brands but maybe a heated foot pad warmer kinda like this
  10. Wait you eat FOOD on Christmas? I thought it was "eat candy & junk from stocking" day. Ok I am not that bad. We either way breakfast or supper at MIL depending on schedule of young kids with divorced parents. Other meals for us are random whatever we can find. Usually there are leftovers in fridge.
  11. Chili Chicken and dumplings Chicken pot pie filling with biscuits Spaghetti Mac & cheese & ham Fried rice with beef & broccoli Enchiladas Chicken rotel spaghetti Any favorite casserole doubled or tripled Basically anything I cook is doubled or tripled
  12. Money has been slipping away left and right. Mostly for Christmas presents and groceries but still. Have gotten a few good deals. We went shopping Friday afternoon and Saturday. Found each ds main Christmas present. They were with us, normally would have tried to hide it or came back etc but we were out of town. We couldn't pass it up (saved $80) so we bought it. They are 17 & 20 so not like ruining santa but still wished it could have been a surprise. Also found some niece and nephew gifts 1/2 price. MIL likes the adult coloring books. I found some really nice ones super cheap for her. Came home from 2 different thanksgiving dinners with quiet a bit of turkey. Put it in the freezer in portion sizes for soups & casseroles. Cheap meals later.
  13. Frogger - sorry about your oven. Some appliance stores sell scratch and dent appliances. A lot of the defects are on the side or back and not even seen. Things like that don't bother me so that is where we start looking. 🤣🤣 Hey I can support that too
  14. Here 🖐️ Wake and worry is almost a nightly thing. Some nights I am lucky and wake, sorry a minute and go back to sleep. Other nights not so lucky. I lay there for hours worrying. Or worry, doze, worry, doze.
  15. Thaw in fridge several days. Take out of bag when ready to cook. Pull out stuff stuck in cavity. Plop bird in pan. Rub a little oil all over bird. Pour beer in cavity. Cover with foil & bake at 325 for however long suppose to. Yep I go all fancy. LOL But seriously it comes out moist and everyone likes it.
  16. Also PS4 controllers are$8 cheaper right now at walmart
  17. I asked ds. He doesn't have those games but thinks they can be played offline. He said if you can see the box it will say internet required if you have to have the card. Some games can be played both online or offline I know nothing about these games.
  18. If you play playstation online you need the Plus card normally $60 right now email delivery $40.
  19. A magic repair all the house stuff that needs repairing.
  20. Saw this
  21. Thanks mommyoffive I need some pictures! Bought another 47c turkey today, it will make several meals. Found another nephew the Christmas gift he wants, really cheap. Not big savings but every little bit counts
  22. I haven't gotten my assignment yet but I figure it will be deviled eggs & pies and maybe pasta. I just go with the flow as long as they tell me several days in advance. But did find out that the family won't be celebrating on Thanksgiving day. SIL will be with her family. So we will be celebrating on a different day. Fine with that too.
  23. Sold 2 coats today. Not much but helped out a friend and I have enough to cover an outing tomorrow
