I was extra frugal today. I didn’t wake up until 4:40 pm, thereby completely eliminating the necessity of lunch. Or of dinner, as the case may be, since we ate what I had planned for lunch. Just because I can write and craft at any hour doesn’t mean sleeping til almost 5 pm is a…… Continue reading Grocery Report and Menu… Holy Oversleeping, Batman!

Sometimes people, myself definitely included, compare themselves to others to their own detriment. For me, this is particularly true when it comes to living frugally.

Even when the price itself is…… Continue reading When A Deal Isn’t A Deal

Late last night, I found myself feeling a fair bit nauseous. No idea why, but there it was. I felt lousy. And… I had nothing to take for it. I usually keep some anti-nausea medication around, but what I had expired 2 years ago. I debated taking it anyway, but decided against it. The next…… Continue reading Cheap Cures!
I think I was not eager to get a start on the day, since this is how Hubs found me when he got home from work this morning. I did eventually get up and get moving, but it took a while. Fortunately there were no major “to do”s on the list, so I didn’t…… Continue reading Making Stuff Monday: Photo Coasters
