Happy Thanksgiving!

Last night I went to the Thanksgiving eve worship service. It gave me a LOT to think about, how many blessing I receive everyday and don't thank the Lord enough. So, I am making it a point to thank God for my blessings today and everyday. Thank you God!

I hope every one has a great Thanksgiving day and remember to give thanks!

My Journey to Christmas

Usually by now I am completely done with Christmas prep! This year we have had so many changes in our lives and it shows, I have just about nothing done!! so I am challenging myself to do one major or semi major thing a day. That way I should be done in the nick of time, but without major stress or burn out.

I am starting Friday, I work from 11-5. I plan to sign our names to all of our Christmas cards, and start addressing them.

Frugal Saturday fun

Today, the boys and I took a tiny road trip to Lowe's for the free Build it and Grow workshop. They made wooden car garages and if you know anything about my boys we could NOT miss that workshop.

We brought a cold pizza leftover lunch, went to Menards to get some ski gloves that were on sale BOGO free, I bought two pairs and got two pairs all for $7.98!! And an entrance mat for the mud room $2 after rebate. Then to Kohl's to use my $5 off coupon, Joel picked out a clearance shirt that is ScoobyDo. Then to Micheal's to use my 40% off coupon, the boys picked out a craft kit to do later this week, I bought a 2010 pocket calender and colored feathers for the next 4H meeting, spending $8 total.

Then to the Y for swimming, the boys swam for about 3 hours, I went in the hot tub and sauna besides swimming. We all took showers, saving propane at home for heating water.

Then at home I cut the boys hair , the were raggamuffins for far to long.

FUN, FUN frugal day!!
