NOW if only we could live on toothpaste and deoderant I would never have to work,lol. This is my this weeks CVS haul....6 toothpastes, 6 deoderants, several toothbrushes, all FREE.....mothers day card, FREE, and thank you cards, paid for with free bucks......gum, free..........too much fun getting all this free stuff...then I played the GG and got about 1/2 a weeks groceries for 20 bucks!!!! Yup, I figure I got food to make at least 4 or 5 dinners, for 20 bucks!!!!! This frugal stuff kind of grows on ya.......my mission, save as much as I make when I work. Now I had cut back to 20 hours a week in the last few months, badly needed, but now that I have this time off, due to my leg, Im going to try to save as much as I would make working 20 hours a week. Right off the top Im taking off 400.00 a month for food and gas I wont spend being home.......lets not even talk about clothes and shoes,lololol...........I can be frugal with everyday stuff, but youre not gonna catch me buying a generic purse, a gals gotta draw the line somewhere!!!! Anyways, while surfing some frugal blogs I came across this one and at first I only read it to get the CVS deals, but the more I read the more it became a challenge to see how much I could save on food........its really addicting, you get a high when you score a good deal!!!!! So anyways, thats my mission, I cant wait to see next months master card bill, Im expecting it to be 1/2 of what it would be if I was working.....I will keep you posted!!!!! I have cooked every night this week, thats unheard of!!!!!!
I took some pics of my front porch, I got to spend some time out there last week and it looks so cute. As soon as I get this support stocking off my leg I will work out there even more, its so relaxing, and fun to watch all the baby birds getting fed.
Finally thank you America for coming to your senses, I was soooooooo afraid Syesha would get the boot last night instead of dreadlock boy.......Idol seems to be crazy this season and talent hasnt seemed to matter, but thank you America for last night!!!!! See, its the little things that make me happy........and I wont even talk about how anxious Iam to see who the Bachelor picks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And lets not even talk about Sex in the City!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cant wait!!!!!!
OK...back to reality...the laundry waits..........
