Frugal for me?Well since I did have to to Lowes.I took the 2 younger kids with me as I had free admission at the Playstation and I aslo let my middle dd bring her b/f with us.I had a coupon for her to use.We did buy food there but the food was on special for 99 for 1 slice of pizza or a hot dog.So that was the only money I spent.Oh and I did use up my coupons at Hardees for us to eat later on.Then I went to Lowes and spent too much money.I am home for the night and the b/f is at home with her famil.I am now trying to get over the bad headache I got and oh the pop was free too.

Hi all..I just got caught up...not much frugal here..i cant get scotts oven to work..or mine either...soooo im trying to make a potroast in the day is going pretty

other than that...Scott has been looking up flights to Portland for all of us. Now I'm trying to figure out what to take on the plane in our carry on bags to make the flight as good as possibal for the kids. I think the total time for drive to the airport, the flight, and the drive from Portland to his daughters house, will be a total of about 10 hours. Im thinking of seeing if we can stay in a hotel the night before,because im always late..

anyone know of ideas for a flight?

plus we are also going to Gatlinberg this summer too. So this is a huge thing for me and the kids. We dont get treated like this often..and Im really likeing it..

Lisa your bedroom looks great..i think i may paint this summer.

new navy wife...welcome...

has anyone seen patrice?

thats all i can remember from the old posts..have a good day all..ill be back later.

See how I live on less than $20000 a year!
