March Madness Budget Begins Today

Posted 03-01-2009 at 04:25 AM by VintageTink

Ok so i have put myself on a very strict budget for the month of march.

I have Started off with 200.00 and im going to see how far i can stretch it
This is for ALL my purchases ( this includes gas except for when my friend fills my tank bc i take him back and forth to work) This includes any money i spend OOP anywhere. This does NOT include my bills.

So we start off with 200.00

Day 1- Spent 10.02 in gas ( yeah yeah yeah went over 2 cents )...

Coupons and me

Posted 02-28-2009 at 03:17 PM by Michele625

I am beginning to get back on track again feeling like the supermom that I am. This economy has got me down, and I have never been a couponing mom before. But I just happen to watch a great TV show about couponing, so that week I downloaded some coupons and saved $19 on my grocery bill that week. I know that's not much....but I was saving nothing before. so, its something.

I really am confused about the wishlist thing. I see where I post my URL link for my wishlist,...

2/26/09 - Crises in our world today

Posted 02-26-2009 at 07:28 PM by jbarber8 (Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head)

I came here to post something fun, but I started looking around at the recent posts, and now I'm in a funk.

First, I read that MBPNursy passed away due to complications from gastric bypass surgery. I was not lucky enough to know Nursy, but I have read many of her posts and always thought she was wise, direct, and on target with her comments.

Then I read AHernandez's thread about hardships she is enduring recently. I don't know AHernandez either, but we both post frequently...
