We had a reallllly frugal-but-tasty dinner (black bean/corn salad) and watched a movie from the $1 rental box at the grocery store (excellent choice). Not the Date Night of my dreams, but it was good.
I don't want to pay for A/C.
But soon I will have no choice.
I noticed our dogs scratching quite a bit recently and investigated...fleas! I can't afford to buy enough Advantage for 3 dogs this month (or next month...or for the forseeable future...) so I tried some natural stuff from PetSmart; it has cinnamon, cloves, and peppermint in it. The dogs now smell like liniment. I hope it works...I'm saving the receipt.
Have you checked Ebay? I got an 8 month supply of Frontline for $20 shipped. The sellers have 100% feedback. (This was for a cat. Not sure if a dog is more but worth looking into.)
Just wanted to join and say *hi*...While we may not have a ton of money, I still feel very blessed and very loved.
