Re: Sticker Shock at the Grocery (again!)

Like Jackie, we try to have at least one meatless meal a week ... usually pasta. (Though I got a nice eggplant on sale yesterday, so that's likely tomorrow's dinner.) I closely watch the sales ... we eat a lot of chicken, and pork prices have come down a bit here, so the sale prices have become much...

Re: Five Weekly Frugal Things October

At my house ... We both packed lunches for work (and I got a free lunch at work on Friday during a staff function.) I've stashed snacks and tea bags in my desk to keep me away from the vending machines/coffee shop. Cashed out a rebate site; not much, but I'd rather have it in my pocket. Checked GasB...

Good evening ... cool, and looks like it is about to rain. Jackie, glad your DS is on the mend and that both boys have a safe trip home. Frustrating day at work ... am very glad it's the weekend.

Re: Daily Check-in Oct. 7

Good afternoon ... Very foggy this morning, but turned out to be a hot day. Couple of busy days. Had dinner last night with a group of friends from high school ... a good time was had by all. Trying to get the hang of the new job ... coming slowly, but getting better by day. It's kind of sobering to...

Re: Thanksgiving Plans Anyone

Might be the difference in harvest times ... the particular date has bounced around a bit, though. The U.S. didn't have a national Thanksgiving Day until 1863 -- President Lincoln designated the last Thursday in November as the holiday. But in 1939, Franklin Roosevelt declared it to be on the fourth...
