I’m back, and…??

A benevolent pal of mine sent me a keyboard middle of last week, and I have finally found the time to come off “no mail” and get back to some serious frugal actions.

I went to buy groceries Saturday and spent $47 at Save-a-Lot (cart FULL!) and $22 at Big Star, where they had ground beef for 79 cents/lb. I was able to get a pack of regular Cottonelle for free with my coupon and even a few school supplies, and should be stocked for 2 weeks. I also did a ground beef freezer session yesterday, and will probably go and get some more today while it’s still on sale.

DH had surgery on his hand last Tuesday.

He had general anesthesia, and he has really had a hard time getting over this. Has anyone had any similar experiences? He feels lethargic, alternately nauseous and ravenous, and just generally crappy, but not really bad enough to warrant going back to the doctor.

My Apologies

Hi all,

I have been dealing with a personal situation the past few weeks so I didn’t devote as much time as I should to getting the blog running well.

I am in the process of ensuring the following:

-A techie moderator to make sure we have great settings and who can tell us when the problems are just net burps (Kyle are you still here?)

-a challenge coordinator to either assign or coordinate the vote for the monthly challenge

-daily instigators (still deciding whether this is appropriate and needed) to get discussion going on the topic of the month or a thought for that day.

Feedback on this would be highly appreciated on or off the list

My frugal day
