great finds

November 10th, 2006 at 01:08 pm

Went shoping at CVS they had four or five
buggies that was full of discounted stuff
halloween candy,all kind of stuff for halloween.

A lot of garden needs and the like I was'nt tempted by any of that stuff, what
cought my eyes was the many packs of my
favoret soft drink mix Crystal Light.

Need less to say I grabed up all that was in thouse buggies.There was ten... eight quart packs at only $1.49 each.A saveing
of over half off.There was also three... boxes of the Crystal Light On The Go ten
packets that was also only $1.49.

What a great deal.

What I drink most of the time is the
Wal-mart Great Value soft drink mix it
cost $1.89 for a twelve quarts pack.I was
down to my last two 12 quarts packs.

Now I wont have to buy soft drink mix for
a while.

All the Crystal Light packs had a xpg date
of 11Nov07.So they was all good.

I did give in and buy a bag of candy at
half price too.The candy was $1.49 too.


This week

October 14th, 2006 at 08:59 pm

Enjoyed my three days off.Wish it had been
for the whole week.well we can't have everything can we?

Went shoping at wal-mart..found a loveseat
slipcover on sale for $11.00 was $49.94 it
was discontinted.Needed a can opener it was
$8.97.Bought a queen size flat sheet to use
on my double bed as a bed skirt it was
$10.97.My bed is exter high because Iam useing a riser under my bed so I can have extra under bed storage.

A day later I found a very nice bedskirt
at goodwill for $1.99..that was on sale
for .99 cent can't beat that.So the $10.97 sheet will go back to wal-mark.

Today I opened the window blinde to let in
the sun shine to chase away the chill in
the air...tradler are always chiller or
hoter than a house.

Did a lot of bakeing today so I won't have
to do so much cooking next week.The heat
from the oven was nice too.

Got some nice freebies in the mail this week.

Found .15 cent in street money not bad for
found money.Got to love free money.


kroger run

October 9th, 2006 at 02:50 pm

Needed a few things from kroger so walked to the store this morning.It was so nice and cool out didn't have to worry about burning
up.And was able to get some excrise too

Spent a little over $28.00 was able to use the $5.00 off $25.00 coupon that kroger had
sent me.
Bread,yougart,fresh veggie,oatmeal,soy burgers,can pineapple and coolwhip was on my
list of things needed.This was my first shoping trip in over two weeks.

Doing my best to stay out of Wal-mart that
place is a money pit.Can't be to hard on them though I did find a five shelve bookcase on sale about three weeks ago for $25.00 that I put in my
kitchen to use as a prantry.
It't working very nicely as a prantry too.

Will be cooking some of thouse veggie for
supper too.So I will be sing off now to
get started.

Spending out of controll

August 13th, 2006 at 11:48 am

Why is it so easy to spend money we don't

For we I know it has to do with all
my credit cards.For months now I have wonted
to freeze them in my freezer .It has now
gotten to the point where I have too.Last
month I did cancel one that was going to
start chargeing me a monthy fee for careing it.I don't wont to get rid of them
all, you never know when you might need
one for an ememergency.

The July statement from my Credit Union tell
me that I have spent $404.59 over what I
bring home each month.Total spent $1,153.61.
Total bring home each month only $749.02.
Back in april I let my income tax check be
deposted into my checking acount and I also withdrew $1,000.00 from saving and
added it to my checking acount because I
did'nt wont any checks to bounce.

It not like I live way above my mean. some
time I do let myself be tempted by sales
or go to wal-mart and come out with over
$100.00 worth of stuff that I needed or
had a coupon on.I also have a lot of nice
and nephew that I try to buy bithday gift
for.I also try to keep my little pantry

That was $400.00 that could have been put
into saving.

I wont to start living off cash so when
it run out there is nothing els to spend,
my credit cards get me in just to much

So my chaillenge is to stay within my buget of $749.00 and not use any of my
credit cards for the rest of the month.


What a poor woman to do?

August 4th, 2006 at 08:24 pm

Have'nt been on line much this week ,gone
back to work full time, summer break over.
Never really had one myself....well I guess one week was a break.

Checking my eMail can't find any thing but,someone trying to part me from my momey.It sale every where I look.
What is a poor woman to do?
This place have 30% off,a nother 45% to 60%.Got to know that....a great deal is'nt
always...a great deal.

Need to keep what little money I have in my saving account.These company are always
trying to temp us with some deal or another.Need to know when to say noo.

Work too hard for the money to have it flow
though my fingers like that.


Raining cats and dogs

July 30th, 2006 at 10:27 am

Got up early to go for a walk but,started
raining befor I could get out of the door.My garden will be good to go for a while.Plus all the free rain water that I
am catching off the roof.
It has cooled off so much I will be able to do a lot of cooking without heating up
the house so much.Will bake sweetpototoes,muffins and casorole will
have food cooked for this week.
I think I will open up doors and windows..
have'nt done that in a while.Nice to let
in some fresh air.
Glad it not thundering and lighting dog
would have a fit.
Hope to walk later on today.Now on with that bakeing.Nothing like fresh baked food
Always take my lunch to work,the muffen
will give me something diffrent for
breakfast.Even though I like cereal so
much.Plain on having a no spend week.There
are no doctor visits and I should be good
to go food and household wise.

July 29th, 2006 at 10:58 pm

Walked over an hour today.
This has been a so so thrifty week.

a fracture bone was so slow to heal.
Bought a few supplies needed soy milk,bread,fruit,can tomatoes..fresn ones are for soy bacon,lettice,and tomatoes sandwish.Eat cereal every day so got two more
boxes they were on sale and I also receved
one of those one dollar coupon good on next oder.Spent around twehty three doller for food.I know that I have enough food in storage to last a while.So will be very careful to only buy what is needed.Just
frest food as it run out.
Teacher are coming back to get ther rooms
ready.They all know that I recyle cans so
this week I took home a big bag full.
One even chared her garden bounty with me
tomatoes..she also gave me a big stack of
coupons sheets..will need to start cutting
them out
