missed a day! will the blog police get me! I hope not. I promise to do better, but!On Wednesday will be travelling to Texas by car. So won't make any rash promises.
Going to an 80 yr old aunt of my haubby's birthday/reunion party. Will be a whirlwind, but guess we can do? I know I will be TIRED when we get back.
Today have to pack me, hubby and #1 dau. She is not going-too much riding for her. She will be staying with my friend along with the doggy.

Does it ever seem to you that-The more you try and get hubby not to spend money, the more he spends! I'm about to the point of the proverbial 'throwing in the towel on this matter'. The hubby always says 'The Lord will provide" and I counter with, but "He doesn't want you to be stupid'. That man just makes me crazy sometimes! Just how many drills does one man need?

I feel good about taking things to Goodwill and actually, I do like shopping at Goodwill. It's so cheap that it feels like a library where I am just checking things out for awhile until I decide to take them back.

Great quote. Goodwill is a good thing. I take loads of stuff there and have bought stuff there too.

It's a place I never shop at Goodwill. You should try using coupons though, it truly is worthwhile.

Also check out my blog on Thursday, as I have another money saving post.

You're right. Just becuase the Lord will provide, but that doesn't mean you need to go and break the bank. there's something to be said for responsibility. ;)

Have fun in Texas. I'm jealous. safe travels!
