After reading everyone's posts...I'm re-thinking the coupon thing...would love to get stuff free! Probably a...

I'm actually saving up for one of these right now! I'm about 2 weeks away from ordering one...I'm glad to hear you like yours. I've been reading reviews and it sounds like a winner. Have you ever taken yours camping? The one I want says it will...

Second, I actually think your prices are about the same as mine in Podunk, WI. I noticed that the poll was older but I didn't think prices had changed that much! Of course, 4 years ago, I...

I have to say that rings true for us too. There have been weeks when I had $100 to spend and somehow it was possible, although I couldn't get some luxury items like paper towels and really squeezing out that last bit of toothpaste to make it until next payday. I save quite a bit...
I was just reading this GRS poll http://www.getrichslowly.org/blog/20...spend-on-food/ and it's really got me thinking about how much people spend on groceries per month, and how much your location factors into it. I'm curious, for those of us who track our expenses, how much can we reasonably spend on food? Obviously the goal is to spend as little as possible, but on this particular web-site the general reader isn't concerned about "organic, free-range, natural" etc. like...

These can be completely raw or partial. My most picky eater can't get enough of these, and they're easy to make so I can have them on hand all the time.

...I was just thinking about how busy we are as Jehovah's people. We don't have a lot of free time but should never be too preoccupied for our friends We've been extra busy here with our KH remodel...it's excited to see it in action. Also the convention this summer is on everyone's minds. Exciting times!!! Hello zebrachick! I wish it was cold here...or showing any sign of "thinking" about getting cold. I actually had to use the A/C a couple days ago
I just read your blog and I'm just amazed at your strength and heartbroken for you and your family. I can only imagine what it would be like to lose my mom. I keep thinking about your words, it sounds like your mom was a cherished sister by those who knew her. You and your family are in my prayers...I am so sorry sister.
