Re: Daily Check-in November 13, 2019

Thank you, Rinty, for giving me a positive look at my "oh, good Heavens!" Christmas budget. This weekend I plan to take cash and coupons (vouchers) in hand and get it done. Today was warmer, thank goodness. I did housecleaning and laundry, dog wrangled, and applied online for three jobs, all clerica...

Re: Count Me In: Christmas for Less Than $100!!

I am not really prepared for Christmas and need to tell my brother there's a $20 limit per person on gifts. DB is the one who gets all childish - and not in a good way -about Christmas. DH and I do not exchange gifts and not working gets me out of the dreaded office gift exchange. I will get a small...

Re: Daily Check-in November 12, 2019

Good afternoon, frugal ones. We had no snow or ice this morning, thank heavens, but it's only a tad above freezing and there's a stiff wind. Our oldest cat, who came to us as a stray 11 years ago, has Houdini-like powers of escape and managed to pop through the door when I opened it a crack to see i...

Re: Daily Check in Nov 11, 2019

Janet, I probably won't hear anything about the MRI until my next doctor's appointment in two weeks. The hospital radiologist has to read the test, write a report and send it to my doc, and then we see what happens. I feel much better on the new drug, which s very inexpensive, so if the new drug wor...

Re: More SEARS and KMART closings.....

I miss Kmart. DH and DS bought all their jeans, shorts, and casual shirts there. Socks and underwear for the whole family. I bought some of my clothes there, and I loved their small appliances. Sears is where we bought all our appliances and they had great winter coats. Both suffer from having almos...

Re: Daily Check in Nov 11, 2019

Janet, I hope your MRI goes well. (((HUGS))) And let that silly woman pick up sticks herself if she's going to put off mowing until it snows. You don't need to hurt yourself on her behalf. Aside from being multiply skewered by the MRI tech who said she couldn't hit a vein, my MRI went well. In the i...
