Boggz & Bluebird

That's what we have in our kitchen and bathroom too is linoleum. In the bathroom it came in tile sections, just peel and stick. Dh did it in less than 8 hours including the measuring, very easy and pretty cheap.

I'm so excited... I told you all this weekend that this guy came and bought a bunch of candles for his wife. He came back last night with his wife and bought $45.00 more of candles and incense bottles He said "See I told you I would be back"! Really good customer so far.

Frugal today: just the usual stuff, take lunch to work, car share, etc. go home make dinner at home and work on another cake. Dh is going to drill holes in the cake I made the other day, it's 3 inches deep. He didn't think he'd have a long enough drill bit but he thinks he does.

Oh well enough of that... take care everyone.

Anna

My 2 1/2 cents worth....


I love carpet cause it's warm and I only have to vaccumn it. Uncapeted floors you have to scrub regularly and if you live in a dusty area that can be pretty often! Rugs get dirty too but I only have to shampoo them every three or so months downstairs and upstairs once a year

Hello, everyone!
We have carpet, but have to shampoo it often because of the dogs. Spring is particularly bad with them tracking in mud. I finally put an old towel by the door to wipe their paws when it's wet out.
Good going, Anna, on selling more candles! Before you know it, you'll be set up in your own shop.
Norma, I love the "call his mom" message. lol That's too funny.
We are having friends from out of state coming to visit Memorial weekend, so I've just been planning my menu and grocery list. I like to make as much as I can ahead so I'm not cooking the whole time. So, I guess frugal today would be making granola and muffins and a few meals for the freezer. Hopefully, it will be nice and we can do some grilling as well. Well, ladies, take care and have a nice evening!

Good morning all!!

I was more frugal than I planned to be last night. I stopped at my sister's home to pick up stuff for the yard sale. While there, she asked if I wanted to split a pizza with her for dinner. So we did, as much because she had to show me how to use something on my computer as to eat. But hey, I didn't have to cook, just do the dishes and provide her with soda.

Anna - great to hear your sales are making small leaps and bounds. You go girl!!

Well ladies, better go. I have to do a couple of rows on this afghan, and then get to work.


Take care all!! Norma
