Re: can y'all help with my change. org petition?

Clem, I signed for ya. Libraries are so important to communities - and so much more than a place to borrow books. My library is a lifeline for me in many ways - and was even a way to help me make a bit of extra money (online surveys) before I could get internet here at home.

Re: Daily Check In August 1, 2021

The rain has started back up - I think there will be no dog walking, just taking them out to do their business before we all go to bed early. The temperature has dropped - I think I will sleep with a fleece blanket tonight, in addition to the flannel sheet (sleep with windows open till November).

Being Frugal - is there anything that you are tired of?

Frugal Friends, are there any frugal habits that you have sustained long-term that you are getting tired of? Anything you do that you are sick of doing or don't do that you are sick of not doing? For me, I am getting tired of eating beans (except in my homemade veggie burgers - those never get old),...

Re: Small Goals - Pennies to Dollars

Jackie, I agree with you - I was neither surprised nor disappointed when I added up all my receipts. I was happy to get a little stash of canned goods going again - I like to have a lot of canned fruit put away for winter and a lot of tomato soup as well, so got several of each.
