Weekend Links

I wanted to start something for the weekends and I couldn’t really decide what. I have a lot of interests and I read about a lot of different things. I always want to share that information with you and I couldn’t decide on the best way for a long time. I always want to sound like the expert and share this information with you after I tried it, but you know I just don’t have the time to try everything…

No Spend September – Will You Join Me?

I am also extending an invitation to you all to join me! A No Spend Month can look a little different for everyone. Some people will choose to live off what they have in the pantry and some will allow a minimum budget for the grocery store. Some will have some…

Monday on Tuesday Frugal Update

Wow…last few weeks kicked my rear! We had county fair, family visiting, all four kids at home at once, kids gone, and the general craziness of life! This last week was equally as busy with state fair (Yeah Paige!), a doctor’s appointment that turned out good (Yeah Jordan!), Shali gone for part of the week, school registrations, getting ready for college, canning, selling books, and whatnot. Maybe I need another vacation or staycation or whatever it was I took in…
