Re: September No Spend Challenge 2

Way to go, Bridget!

I have 11 no spend days this month so far. Am trying for 20, so we'll see how it goes. Tomorrow I will have a doctor's bill to pay, so that's allowable spending.

Re: Daily Check in Sept 16, 2015

Go, Colonial Girl, with the decluttering! I have been a little busy this morning. Gave DH a haircut and trimmed his eyebrows, cleaned and vacuuming the laundry room (have to do this daily because it's the cats' room), and cleaned the kitchen.

Re: i Am Done

I'm 56 and gave it up a year ago. I'd only colored it a few years but did not like the time and expense, plus the only guy at Fantastic Sam's who could do it the way I liked got sick and quit.

Re: Finally...getting some things done around here!

Wow, that sounds great, Carol. An honest, hard-working handyman is worth his weight in gold. Our house was unoccupied for two years before a small amount of updating was done and it was put on the market to sell. The economy was down back then, and it stayed up for sale for nearly a year, so it's ne...

Re: VET benefits and assisted living

She needs to talk to an elder care attorney or she will have some very nasty surprises waiting on her. The only way the VA is going to cover his care is if he goes into a VA nursing home. Regular assisted living -- like what my mom was in for a few years -- is not covered by anything except a specia...

Re: Daily Check in Sept 14, 2015

CG, I look through People magazine at the hair salon and don't recognize 90 percent of the celebs in it. So I'll join you in being old. :) I saw those bins at Aldi and may go back for a couple. The bins I'm using now for washed produce -- DH is a grab and go eater, and having the produce ready to co...
