Re: Five Frugal December Things

Rubber ducks and rubber turkeys, LOL! Love it! Oh my ... last post for 2015 here too ... 1) For Christmas, we recycle gift boxes, bags and ribbons. And since it's pretty much the two of us, those boxes will keep going for years, LOL! 2) Used a box/packing materials from our stash for the one gift we...

Re: Daily Check In December 31, 2015

Good afternoon ... and happy New Year's Eve! Went to the early matinee of 'Star Wars,' which I enjoyed. (and that's all I'll say so I don't spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet ;) ) Went to Aldi last night for 3 things, but DH spied the clearance section and found the deal of the year: 17 oz b...

But I'm glad to be OK, though still a bit nervous about getting on the hig...

Re: How Are You Tightening Your Belt?

Dreamer, you might also check into OneSpace (formerly known as Crowdsource). They have various writing gigs. You have to qualify (take a test, usually) ... they don't pay a lot, but they pay quickly.

good afternoon ...
Cloudy, expecting snow flurries
DH was hurting a bit from the dental work. Turns out the new crown will cost closer to $1500, rather than $ 1200. Ugh.
Last day of work before the holiday. Have a large list of stuff to do. We'll see.
