September 30 of Getting back to my Frugal roots

So I need to get fired up again and there is NO better time then NOW. So, I will go gunho for September, I will try to up date daily.

Rules for myself:

* No buying junk-food or otherwise
* I will need to pay Joel's school fees and lunch account
* No trips to town other then pre-planned ones.
* We have two camping weekends, we will bring all foods and avoid extra expenses.
* bake all snacks, all food at home. Keep coop and share orders to a bare minunum.
* No dryer use.

That will keep me busy. I will add as I think about more

welcome to my world

I am not sure how I will go about this blog, this is my first time having a blog and blogging. So sit back and enjoy the ride with me.

I hope to keep track of my thoughts about my family and my life in general. I am a frugal person at heart. I am a wife and mom of two of the sweetest little boys in the world, I thank God for them everyday. While it is a struggle to afford the pleasure of being a SAHM, My DH and I feel this is the right place for me right now :)

Today is Monday. I am working on my menu. I will edit when I have a plan.So my dinner menu for the next week is:
Monday-Shake and bake chicken breast with alfredo noodles and corn on the cob.
Tuesday-Ham, roasted potatoes, with candied carrot coins
Wednesday-Ham in scalloped potatoes, with green beans
Thursday-Chicken legs & gravy over noodles
Friday-Sunshine ham and pasta with peas
Saturday-steak and baked pototos with cauliflower
Sunday-salisbury steak w/gravy over mashed potaotes and corn on the cob.
