Re: Daily Check In November 7, 2019

Hi, frugal friends. Maggie and Gayle get virtual hugs for ailing today. I hope you get some relief from the meds your oncologist recommended, Gayle. LWolfT, so good about your big kitty!

Re: Nov 6, 2019 Daily Check-in

JCKitty, the hospital probably would forgive a good percentage of it if we had cash to pay, but this caught us at a bad time. So we are paying the smaller ones as they come in and will be making payments to the hospital for 15 months. I think the payments are at least no interest during that time pe...

Re: Daily Check in November 5, 2019

Gayle, that is so sweet that Rinty called you. This is such a great group of frugal friends. I am having a low-key day. Went to the bread outlet, which appeared to have been pillaged before I got there, and then bought some cleaning supplies on the way home. Discovered that neutral no-buff shoe cond...

Re: Daily Check In November 4, 2019

Gayle, I saw this same thing at the church I worked for: no or little help for those who need it most. Jesus said "as you do unto the least of these, you do unto Me," not "just help those of the same social class when and if you feel like it."
