Changes Around Here

June 18, 2016

Hi everyone!

I made some changes and unfortunately, as of right now, most of my blog posts for the last 6 years have vanished! I am hoping to get them back, but in the mean time, you can take a stroll down memory lane and see some posts I did 6 years ago :)

Websites I just had to share!

April 7, 2010
I spend a lot of time listing great deals and freebies, but I do not always get a chance to post all the great websites I find that really don't fit into a category.  There are so many websites and on-line communities out there just for us Moms! - I joined their site about 3 weeks ago and today I received my first e-mail asking if I would like to test a product.  I answered their survey questions and received an e-mail back saying that I had qualified.  I will be getting a produc...

My Trash Picking Update

April 1, 2010
This "Daily" wording is getting tricky.  It is more like "monthly".  I am spending so much time posting freebies and daily deals that I do not has as much time to come here and just share. 

But I wanted to follow up on the post about "One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure" and show you a picture of my creation.  I went crazy with the spray paint and made this butterfly pop!  Just to think the poor thing was just sitting by the curb waiting for a new coat of paint and a new home!

Time to Come Clean

March 9, 2010
How many of us buy an item when it is on sale, even if we will not need to use it right away?  We have been told to be smart shoppers and buy when the price is low so we are not stuck needing it when the price is high.  I have discovered, by way of my cat, that I do this mainly with beauty cleaning items.  This morning one of my cats got into the bathroom cabinet and managed to open a bottle (he is amazing :) and spill conditioner.  So, I was forced to remove everything from the cabinet to cl...

One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure

February 3, 2010
This is an old saying, but very true.  How many times have you taken something offered to you from a friend who did not want it anymore?  Thrift Stores, Garage Sales, EBay, Craig's List, dumpster diving.  All ways to get items others no longer want or need. 

I watched the Antique's Road Show on Monday and there was a lady who bought a lamp for $25 at a garage sale and had a hunch.  It ended up being a Tiffany lamp and was worth $50,000!  I know we all wish for opportunities like that, but in ...

Another week at the grocery store

January 24, 2010
This week was a learning week.  The more I am looking to save money, the more I am on-line looking for deals and coupons.  I had a few coupons that I knew I could only use at Wal Mart, because they were the only store around that carried a few items.  I was so into all this "couponing" and I found some blogs that had Wal Mart deals for the week and started printing away.  Now these are not items I would have normally bough,t but since the deals were so good I decided to print out the coupons ...

Working Harder with Coupons

January 16, 2010
So, to help out with my new year goals, I have committed to save $120 a month on groceries.  My goal is now to spend $120.00 a week.  Now, depending on where you live and the size of your family that may seem like a lot of money or a little.  With a 17 year old boy in my home, that amount sounded like something I could actually meet.

On Thursday I went to my grocery store deal page (right now I only have So. Cal stores listed) and compared the lists and decided which store had the best deals f...

The New Year

January 16, 2010
Okay, so I am a little late.  We are still only two weeks into the new year!  I thought if I wrote here my goals for 2010 it might make it more real, and I have all of you to help keep me accountable!  I hope you will share your goals as well.  Just click on the title of this post and type away.

I wish my goals were a little more out of the box, but I, like many of you seem to struggle with the same thing year after year. 

1)   Pay down some debt.  This one is number one because I find that I ...

On Vacation

January 6, 2010
It has been awhile since a wrote here.  So much for a "Daily" dose...

We have been enjoying a lovely week in Sedona, AZ.  I have challenged myself and my family to stay on a budget this vacation and so far it is working.  I plan on adding everything up once we return home.  We have been as frugal as possible, but you still have to buy some souvenirs!  Normal life hit us today when my daughter came down with a cold.  So, we are just enjoying our time share condo for the day.  Hopefully she will...
