I slept better last night, although I got up a couple of times to check on the visiting dog. She was fine but she is elderly and I just wanted to make sure she was OK. It's damp but mild here and I have enjoyed taking my doggy pal for a couple of walks in the local park. It's wonderfuhow many people you get chatting to when accompanied by a very friendly dog.
No money out today other than online booking of train tickets for my next couple of trips to London. The earlier you can book, the cheaper it is but DD doesn't always know so much in advance when she is going to need me.
So far I am doing quite well in my determination to lose some weight. One of the things motivating me is all the clothes hanging in my wardrobe that I can't get into! One of my local pharmacies has a weighing scale in his shop so I have decided to get weighed there once a week as my bathroom ... less

Our dinners haven't been that great lately. Odds and ends Sunday night, roasted pork for tacos Monday night (that came out OK), bean soup (in the trash, it was terrible, frugal fail), chicken wings and mozzarella sticks last night. I thought I was buying buffalo wings, but they were just plain wings so I put bbq sauce on them. Tonight will be carne asada made from London broil. Jill

I am one who prefer s to bothgive andreceive personal yet practical gifts. I have a couple of ideas, and want to run them by everyone. For my DD, I am thinking about a box of tampons and/or pads(so she doesn't have to wait on her grandmother to get them because herfather ius a jackass!! and perhaps a bottle of Advil and maybe a new sshade of lip color For DS: I am thinking about a small bottle of colognre or after shave along with a new razor with refgils and some shave gel. If I know my ex, my 16 year old son is probably using Old Spice, because that's what he uses. I want to send them a little something for their birthdays. Something practical yet personal. The sad thing is I will probably end up reaching out to my ex's ex girlfrirend for ideas. If possible I would like to keep it at or less than $25 each. thanks in advance for your h... less

Here's a topic that's near and dear to my heart. How do you know that the people who are giving you financial advice are qualified?
That's a very important question to answer. Things are so complicated now that you can't just take advice from anyone and expect things to turn out well. Some ...
How do you pay off debt when you’re living paycheck to paycheck and don’t have any money? I get this question just about every week from readers who want to pay down their debt but don’t feel like they have the income to do it.

Here's one that you probably didn't see coming, but if you give it a little thought it'll feel true. It seems that we baby boomers have too many choices!
I remember growing up with a black and white TV that got 4 stations. We were lucky. Most people got 2 or 3. Then came UHF...
I don't know if it's universal, but I think that many of us have an image of ourselves that we want the world to see and believe. Something that we want others to think of when they think of us. For some it's their style. For others it's their possessions. Most of us probably have a couple of images...
