It’s Frugal Friday, hosted by Biblical Womanhood. My tip for today is (I don’t know, maybe this one makes me just “cheap”, LOL!) that I repackage cheaper shampoos into my “children’s” themed shampoo bottle! They think that they are getting pampered with the cute little fishy shampoo…the never realize that I just keep refilling the bottle! (Let’s just keep that…

Fruit Basket

Tracy / October 5, 2006

When Mom called yesterday, she mentioned that she had some fruit that she would like to send to us….I had no idea it would be this! She was at the post office yesterday when she heard an announcement that they were having a give-a-way…..of course she won, she always wins! I remember the year that Coca Cola had the win…

It’s “Works For Me Wednesday” hosted by Rocks In My Dryer. Today, my tip is to unclog a hairspray nozzle with alcohol! Sometimes water just doesn’t cut through. It’s a quick tip, I know, but it works for me!! I’m happy to report this morning that as of yesterday, I am cavity free! I absolutely hate dentistry so this was…

Good morning! I hope that your day has started out well and you are accomplishing all that you have set out to finish today. We actually started our day a little later than usual. Our day yesterday and night, last night was filled (to overflowing) by a broken dishwasher and then a broken pipe under the sink. I’m so thankful…

Rice Socks

Tracy / October 2, 2006

Did I mention fall last week? Apparently, I was mistaken! It’s supposed to be in the 90’s this week! This, just as I have gotten all of our winter clothing out and am in the process of packing our summer things! *Sigh* Oh well, it will come soon enough, I guess! Today, we’re getting to our rice sock project! I…

My Frugal Friday tip to today is for diaper rash. When my now 7 year old son was a baby, he kept a diaper rash. We tried everything from A and D ointment, to Desenex, to a mixture my pediatrician had the pharmacist mix up for us. When all of those failed to help both relieve and prevent his rashes,…

Neat Week!

Tracy / September 28, 2006

Good Morning! Wow! We are a little in shock that yet another Thursday is here! It’s scout night so we’re busy making the necessary preparations for tonight’s meetings! I have to admit I woke up feeling a bit sluggish this morning! Although, I loved the sweet and salty granola bar, and it is lower in calories than a candy bar,…

I’m sure that everyone is breathing a sigh of relief to not have to listen to me whine anymore about my head. Thankfully, my Motrin did the trick and I am pain free today. One unfortunate lingering effect is the nausea but hopefully it won’t last too much into the day! I really hate migraines! It’s “Works For Me Wednesday”…

I‘m up and awake this morning. Barely. I picked my head up off my pillow this morning with one of the worst headaches that I have had in a while. I get headaches known as sinus related migraines. Imagine with me if you will, all the pain, pressure and misery of a sinus headache rolled into the blurred vision, sometimes…

Good Monday morning! It is such a bright and beautiful day. I hope that you all had a great weekend. We worked around the house…we were thankful to enjoy some much needed time with Paul. He also made great use of his time by repairing my washer and working on the dryer (let’s just say, in a family of 10…to…

Happy Thursday! My name is Courtney, I am the oldest of the eight children here. I am posting for my mom today. Today as I was hanging our laundry out, I happened to notice something in the sky. It was made from the gases that pour out of the back of airplanes to make letters or shapes. The one I…

Works for Me

Tracy / September 20, 2006

Lots of things to cover today….first, along the lines of “Frugal Friday”…Rocks In My Dryer present….”Works For Me Wednesday”! Over the last year, we have tried to lower our budget as much as possible. We have felt like in order to be really good stewards of what we have, we should be able to account for all that we spend…
