No money out today other than the money spent on gas for the car that got me to and from work. All meals were homemade. We had the last of the turkey pot pie from our Thanksgiving left-overs. I am making a special effort to turn off lights, water usage, and considering how to repurpose as much as possible. DH dried bread and made bread crumbs.
DH ordered some homemade sausage from a friend of ours...it's delecious and like to purchase from someone we know.
Decided for Christmas to go will one gift each for adult children and DDIL and DSIL. Plan to get newspaper subscription for my mom. DH and I are purchasing a couple of things for each other.
Take care frugal friends

Grocery stores do what they can to make us buy more than we intend; that's a fact of a free market. We have a choice, though. We can be manipulated by their tactics or we can be empowered by our own logic. Simple choice, right?
Who wants to be manipulated? No hands?
Okay, here's wh...

Steve, Help! My student loans are about to send me into financial ruin. In 1991 I took out a $12,000 loan to achieve a two-year degree in Electronic Engineering. The school I inquired with lied to me and told me that I could get a very low in...
