  1. Soror - at least with the stocking up you will be prepared this winter. I am hearing it is going to be a bad winter and I am hoping to get stocked up.
  2. I have a few ideas and have started a list but money is the big issue. I think some in our extended family might be a little disappointed this year but it is what it is. I love giving gifts.
  3. Sometimes I think I did ok in September. Other times I am I like what the heck did I buy. Really I didn't buy anything extra. I bought groceries and household supplies (toilet paper, soap, detergent etc. ) I even packed lunches when we had to be out at lunch time. September is just a hard month for us. And I don't guess it is going to get any easier the next few months.
  4. Good Morning Last night at I was getting ready to go to sleep I told myself I was going to get up early and work all day on this junky house. Yeah that hasn't happened. Slept in and have been lazy so far. Maybe I will get my mojo going soon.
  5. I read your post as EATING as a profession I thought "hey I could do that" ?? Then I reread your post and said oh no that's not a good one for me. I think I need more coffee ?
  6. Amy - praying for you and your dd Pink & Green - smart move on ds. Hope he feels better school enjoy the temps, going back up this afternoon gather anything I need to take to others hs group thing find 5 things to get rid of
  7. Know that feeling. Hope it turns out to be a great time.
  8. Never heard using paper bags but MIL used was paper or parchment paper
  9. Christmas - I am thinking maybe fix MIL and my parents some homemade frozen dinners. MIL could be in the single serve size containers and my parents a little bigger container. Dollar tree has various size and shape aluminum containers. And I could get some of the glad type bowls for soups & chili. Also thought about making cookie dough and freezing it in cookie portion size. Then putting in freezer bag and giving as part of their gift. That way if they wanted a cookie or 2 one night they didn't have to make a whole batch. Both sets are very capable of cooking, and do it ni
  10. Melissa - definitely good deal Selkie or Scout - can I come? I like Mexican school kitchen deep cleaning Short and not so sweet
  11. Home Again - awesome deal on hockey I was thinking about Christmas yesterday and felt sick, in a panic sort of way. Of course I was also thinking of all the things we need to get done/repaired/replaced too. We were given some cooked food (leftovers from a cookout). Ate that for several meals. Stayed home today (that saved money).
  12. August I definitely wasn't on my game. Got to get back at it. This morning I had a good thing happen. Stopped in a store looking for something. They didn't have it so I started to leave. Ds2 pointed out the 2019 farmers almanac was on sale. I always get one for my stepdad for Christmas. I grab one thinking I'd save $1. When I checked out the girl asked if I was a member of their reward program. I said no. She said, it's just your name & email and if you sign up you get $5 off your purchase. Yeah I signed up and got the book FREE!! Yeah it made me happy.
  13. YES!!! Love icing!! I don't eat cake/cupcakes very often. Usually family birthday parties. Certain extended family members make faces or give me a hard time when I say I will take the extra icing left on the board after cutting cake. Yes I know it's not good for me but geez it is a very few times a year.
  14. Y'all this year is zooming by. I can't believe we are 1/2 way thru August already. And I am NOT doing good, at all, on my money goals this year ?. I just keep trying. Major screw up this month. I forgot to pay the water bill. I don't remember getting a late notice. (ds2 doesn't remember either and it is usually me or him that gets the mail in). Anyway we came home other day to no water. I had to pay the reconnect fee to get it back on. Doubled my bill. I feel so stupid. Family birthday party other night. They grilled to many burgers and bought to many buns. They didn't want t
  15. Mom's birthday was this month. I planned on giving her a bag of snacks as her gift. Went to dollar tree and found a bunch of name brand snacks, really nice cards and a cute reusable bag (used as the gift bag) for very little money. Dh got a bonus check last week. Cashed it and went to grocery before ever coming home. Grocery was having a meat sale and he bought all he could with the check. I had mentioned being low on meat. He bought ground beef, chicken & pork steaks. Nice to have meat in freezer & I didn't have to try to figure out how to stretch the grocery budget for mea
  16. Jen -- now I am hungry! Looks yummy Look for missing curriculum Make changes in forms Upload pictures Figure out next few days meals
  17. Clean house - all over Laundry Store, seriously do NOT want to go but need too Try to stay awake and moving - up late last night
  18. Well it was suppose to say to much crap but my crazy auto correct decided to change it and I didn't notice LOL
  19. Hope they get your bike back! YAY for all the frugal wins. Losses -- don't stress just think about something good and move on. Kinda a loss kinda a win - Went out to eat with friends -spent a little money (loss). The downtime and relaxation with these ladies (win) I have a bunch of math curriculum I am trying to sell cheap. Thought I had a buyer but she backed out.I Wins -- home all weekend (no spending), sweet friends gave us a bunch of garden surplus & some books I had in hold (online library) came in...free entertainment!
  20. Same here on clothes & supplies. I'm the past I have done it online and gotten it tax free.
  21. Very timely. I just went thru most of our clothes and got rid of a bunch (ok not gone yet but in a pile waiting to go). I am proud of dh and dss for getting rid of as much as they did! I wanted to get rid of more but I kept going back to "it does fit and I do wear it on occasion". They do NOT spark joy but I can't find clothes easily and we have NO money for clothes. So I kept some. I am ready to do the rest of our house. We have entirely to much carp and it makes me anxious and ashamed. We may not be able to afford new things but by George our house can quit looking s
  22. I think doing ok so far but I may have forgotten something. For the 4th I bought a box of hamburger patties & a box of ice cream treats. Don't normally buy either but it was a treat. Did go to the fireworks show but it was free. Mostly been staying staying home. That helps too. Frugal win -- couple friends gave us some garden surplus & dh got to bring home some leftover stuff from meals at work. All that has equaled to a few free meals for us.
  23. Even if you don't make the soaps or candles you could find them at flea markets or farmers markets
  24. Hi y'all. Laundry Decide if going to the grocery or can I wait til Monday. Hate going on weekend. Rest of day will be decided if I go to the grocery.s
