Re: High Grocery Prices - Are you doing things differently?

My plant based food costs have gone up. Of course rice and legumes never go on sale. I have bought some of those and other items from Thrive Market; a little more expensive even with the free shipping I can get. But it means less trips to the grocery store. I am stocking up on long shelf life items ...

Re: sad and scary, covid unemployment and debt

I have an erstwhile friend who is terrible at managing her finances. Whenever she gets any type of windfall she will try to put it in savings at first but then the mentality of "oh boy we can spend again" takes hold and the money is gone.

Re: Daily Check in September 27, 2020

Mackie, it really does. My diabetic numbers were getting out of control and my GP was not happy about it. I am trying really hard to not have to go on insulin. Right now I am on 2000 mg of Metformin per day and I was only taking half of that with better numbers before this pandemic and election junk...

Re: Daily Check in September 27, 2020

G'd Morning Frugals, Numbers are gradually improving. My fasting glucose was down to 160 and my small weight loss seems to be stabilizing. That needs to happen before any more weight loss. As you can see it will be a long slow process. However, what I will be putting together outfits from my smaller...

Re: Daily Check In September 26 2020

G'd Morning, Frugals, I had a wonderful refreshing sleep last night. I didn't even hear DS come in from work. I did have to make my nightly trek to the ladies room but I was able to get back to sleep. I found a small spiral book in my closet that will be perfect for writing down and organizing all o...
