I already told the manager to set back any blue ones (not damaged) that come in.  I'm also going to keep an eye out when yardsaling resumes this spring.  I'm gonna ask my best friend to put the word out to all the little old ladies in the Extension Homemakers Club.


ETA:  And, you don't have to trade me anything, silly.  I still feel like I owe you for the mutant, spastic, deformed Lorax.  (BTW, did you ever tighten up his right eye?)

Whoa!  Grocery score on the dried beans!  Yeah, you!

Itchyfingers -- Did you see the Mythbusters where Grant, Kari, and Tory dealt with moose?  Too funny.

Well, I am a happy camper because I just found a vintage blue Ball canning jar at the thrift shop for 50cents at the local thrift shop and will be making the soap dispenser on my wist, now!  (Sorry, onegroovyday!)  *goes off to delete the soap dispenser from my wist*  Now, I'm going to try to make up the homemade liquid handsoap to put in it! Cheesy


Nope, I've only seen a few episodes as my dad got cable just before I got married and I haven't had TV of any kind since.  But maybe I could find it on YouTube??

And that is a good find!  Makes me want to go thrift store shopping.  I love those soap dispensers. Smiley

My opinion on the whole one partner spending more thing is that you have to get on the same page.  It can actually wreck a marriage eventually if you don't.  Again, I'll recommend The Total Money Makeover if you can get your husbands to read it.  I think lots of people are sort of living mediocre lives when they could be living much better if they followed a budget, put money into savings for retirement and their kids education and never acquired any debt.  Of course, I'm just learning this now and my husband is reading the book, too, so hopefully we'll get on the same page on this and start the plan.  I'm tired of two steps forward, one step back (or all too often, three steps back!).

We don't have TV channels either.  I stream stuff online, do the cheap netflix plan, and watch lots of DVD's.

Oh, and I just made those whole wheat vegan banana cookies and they are good.  I skipped the vegan part and used butter, but I'm sure they'd be good with oil, too.  In fact, I might try that out soon, too.  The only thing I found was that using two bananas left things way too wet and I had to add flour.  Next time I'll try it with one banana and maybe less sugar, too.  I added a bit of salt and next time I'll add more - I like cookies way more when there is a nice salt taste to them with the sweet.

I can't wait to see how many pages we have on this thread by the time the swap is done.  This is getting epic - like the random swap last year.

I have an un-frugal fiancee!! I hate when he goes grocery shopping because he never looks to see what's on sale... and I'm not sure what he spends his money on, but we never have money. we always seem to be streching to make things work the last few days before pay day.

Has anyone mentioned PainlessFrugality.com in this thread?  A friend of mine just gave me a link to their latest post on navy showers (get in, get wet, turn off water, soap up, turn water one, rinse off, turn water off, etc.).  I haven't read much yet, but the name of the blog itself is intriguing.

Aiki - I'll be watching those when I have some time.  Now it's off to get ready to take my little girl to kids club and have some time to myself (yay!!).

OK cheap eats....oatmeal. Quite yummy on a cold night I must say. Add in some raisins for some fruit and a little more iron and we had dinner. Smiley Love a man who will eat oatmeal for dinner. Smiley

Wow, you're very lucky. My husband won't eat oatmeal at all, much less for dinner. Though he does love veggies and doesn't mind beans and will always try anything that is on sale. :-P So, I'm luckier than most.
