  1. Fix everything wrong with our house Pay off my car Buy new furniture - ours is so ratty & falling apart Buy new mattress Christmas shopping All of this would be exciting for me.
  2. I have this coffee maker. It does not use the pods but you can make single cups using your own coffee. I use the single cup when its just me and the pot when more are drinking coffee
  3. Reading, not for learning but escape & pleasure. Sitting outside (and reading outside) Watching hallmark movies, especially the Christmas ones.
  4. Hope the negotiation goes well Pink and Green drink more coffee & hope to get energy or at least wake up living room tidy talk to friend declutter something, anything, as much as possible work on Christmas lists - who to buy for & ideas go thru box of pictures
  5. Thank you Barbeque Mom! I have a pork butt in the freezer. I think I will cook it this week. Make an easy meal and some for the freezer. I like to keep some cooked in the freezer for quick meals.
  6. Lingerie bags with names on them. Dirty socks in. Zip, wash and dry. No sorting. If your socks don't make it to your bag. You don't have socks. Unless you are little brother and steal socks from someone else bag.
  7. Haven't done anything crafty this week. Maybe this weekend. School is in session but I think it may be a short day. Maybe a little crafting or home ec (house cleaning) this afternoon.
  8. I needed to get out yesterday too. We went to the museum (season passes) and wandered around the outside part. It wasn't to cool and definitely wasn't crowded. We had a good time. Ds bought us a coke while there but no other money spent. (I love a coke so that made me happier). I don't know I would want to travel to much right now but the getting rid of most of our possessions is a nice thought. We don't use all this stuff.
  9. GOOD points!! Yes worry is a big trouble of mine. Quiet a few things are causing me worry today (& everyday). I just keep trying to remind myself God is watching over us and taking care of us. I am also feeling overwhelmed. The house is junky. We have way to much stuff and I am ready to get rid of it but worry holds me back. Some financial stuff is worrying me and Christmas is 2 months from today. But today I will focus on today. What can I do today to make things better. Pick a spot in the house and try to make it better.
  10. Dollar Tree gift bags greeting cards birthday party decorations balloons seasonal decorations toilet bowl scrub brush sponges - scrubbers dust pan on a stick foil pans storage containers bread pasta snacks - chips, candy, cookies bread finger nail files hair brushes hair clips & pony tail holders - some are not as long lasting as better brands but I loose these often so no big deal to me puzzle books - crossword, work search, sudoku etc. a box of 3 packs of Tylenol, Excedrin
  11. My problem is in the past we gave bigger gifts. Now things have changed and we can't do that anymore and I feel guilty. But I am making myself not feel guilty this year. I am going to do what I can and hopefully find gifts that makes others happy. And hope they know that it comes from the heart.
  12. My dh gets candy, earbuds, candy, notepad, candy, socks, candy, candy, candy. Dh has a sweet tooth and loves candy so that's what he gets
  13. WOW just WOW that is...uh ...wrong on so many levels.
  14. ? LOL FIL and stepMIL gave ds a GIRL outfit for his 1st Christmas. It looked like a little cheer outfit. I had opened the present at FIL. Looked in the box and shut the lid. StepMIL comes over and says "it is just the cutest outfit. He will look so cute." Dh saw it after we got home. He said "Hell no" I took the outfit back and got a BOY sweatsuit.
  15. I use snapfish. I try to make the book and then wait for a sale. The last sale I saw, this past week, was 75% off.
  16. You might have spent money but making things neater in your house will give you more sanity. That is worth money in my book. Love that you could get the meat so cheap and will probably be able to give ds even bigger portions of your "Dennys" meal. Bigger portions are always a plus for my guys. My biggest savings this week is I have stayed home ? There were a few things we needed but I just changed the meal plan or substituted things. Today I will be going to the store as much as I hate to.
  17. My goal is to organize, write names and hopefully dates on the back of my billions of physical photos then get them in photo albums. I have some albums I want..slide pictures in with lines on the side. Then finish printing and doing the same with what isn't printed yet.
  18. Pink & Green - good luck to your ds! I will try to play along today. Have already been up 2 hours and accomplished nothing. It is rainy, cool and dark, I want to go back to bed. Or at least stay curled under blanket and read all day. Need to do: wake ds and get him started on school work pick a kitchen cabinet and clean it out clear end of dining table take care of paper work
  19. We finally got to turn off the ac. Now I am trying to keep from turning on the heat LOL. The temps went from HOT to very chilly. I was hoping for several weeks between the 2 extremes of not having to use any ac or heat. Instead of turning on heat yet I have pulled out the sweat shirts and pajama pants. I did just turn on the infrared heater to knock the chill off. It is rainy today and a damp cool. Been doing pretty good using up leftovers and stretching meals. Stayed out of stores as much as possible. When I did go tot store, car got hit while I was in the store. No
  20. We are not hoarders. Ok we are not hoarders to the extent of the ones on tv. I am well aware we have entirely to much crap. I am so ready to get rid of stuff. I want to keep only stuff that we use or truly makes us happy. I am more ready to get rid of stuff now than I have been in the past BUT then I start going through stuff and thinking "what if I need this" or "well I could use this". A friend told me "if you can go to the store or order it.... get rid of it. Then if you ever do need it again you can just go buy it." But I keep thinking "what if I can't buy it again" Dh los
  21. Sometimes I got into the "our house is looking like gotta toss stuff" But most of the time this ? is what normally happens to me.

  23. soror I usually save my birthday money for house stuff too. heartlikealion feel you with dh and the money. My dh and I are not always on the same page either. hjjkjk sorry about not getting the raise Barbeque mom nuts & pepperoni slices were my fall back for snacks I miss our bread store. I could get some really good deals there but they closed down. Not sure I knew about budget bytes. I have the page open now so I don't forget to look. My stepmom just gave me a big container of yeast. It was buy one get one and she said she only needed one. I gu
