Haven't posted in awhile

March 24th, 2005 at 09:40 am

Things have been crazy busy - at work and at home so I haven't had a chance to post.
I had family come for the weekend, so I entertained them. Plus I'm taking a class online, which requires some readings and homework.

We went shopping at an outlet center in Maine, on Sunday. I was soooo good. I only bought candy at a candy warehouse-type shop.
My family kept trying to get me to buy something, but I didn't want to spend the money plus I didn't see anything that I truly liked.

Our grocery bills have been down lately. I don't get home until 6:30, and my husband's been getting home at 7:30 lately due to overtime, so we're finding that we're not hungry enough for dinner. We'll occasionally snack, which is cheaper than paying for dinner (utilities and ingredients).

Went to the doctor yesterday, and told her we want to start trying for a baby. I have to take prenatal vitamins and start taking in more calcium - the expenses already begin for the baby is conceived!! I usually don't drink milk or orange juice because it's so expensive.

I did a major cleaning of the house before they came. It makes me love the house more, and not want to move. Plus, the neighbors beside us put their house up for sale. We won't have to listen to their 3 kids anymore! The noise really bothers me - it made me not want to be in my own house. All the neighborhood kids would come to their house to play and make noise. I won't miss that a bit.

I made my first sale on half.com. It went very smoothly, although I haven't received payment yet. I mailed in on Saturday morning. Maybe the buyer doesn't make the payment until they receive and it goes through ebay's system. I dunno.

Ok, back to work.

Have a happy frugal day!!

    You know you get alot of great kids that keep coming when you have a child, I still get gifts from my mother and grandmother. The best place is the Thrift Shop for Toys and clothes if you are not picky.

    half.com sends out payments twice a month.
