Getting Rid of our Junk Week 4 of 54

For week 4, I pulled a Joker. This is the highest card to pull and thankfully there are only 2 of them. Oh did I have fun with this card. Last Saturday with it being so gloomy I turned my phone off, turned on Blue Bloods in the bedroom and spent 3 hours going throughContinue reading “Getting Rid of our Junk Week 4 of 54”

Project – Joyce’s Rose

I have been a stitcher for over 35 years and have completed so many projects. Some I have given as gifts and some I have kept for myself. The project I am currently working on is very special to me. Both my mother-in-law and father-in-law have dementia. It’s been very hard because there is noContinue reading “Project – Joyce’s Rose”

Week 17 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries

It’s been a few weeks since I posted what we are eating and grocery costs. In week 15 I spent about $200 on all kinds of fun stuff so for weeks 16 and 17 I haven’t spent much at all. Week 16 was $48.96 and this week I spent $49.17. The only meat I boughtContinue reading “Week 17 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries”

Getting Rid of our Junk Week 3 of 54

I had an interesting response from a reader after last week’s post. The reader loved the idea of clearing the clutter in her own home but didn’t feel that they really had that much stuff and she would struggle with the high cards such as the Kings which would be 100 items. I want toContinue reading “Getting Rid of our Junk Week 3 of 54”

Getting Rid of our Junk Week 2 of 54

It’s already week 2 and I pulled a 4 for this week. A small card means large items need to be hauled out. We have a usable attic in this house and in the past it was my grandfather’s train room. From one side to the other were train tracks and the walls were decoratedContinue reading “Getting Rid of our Junk Week 2 of 54”

New Blog Series – Getting Rid of our Junk Week 1 of 54

Welcome to my newest blog series! This series has been something I have thought about writing for a while. Last week when the Hubs was gone on vacation I looked at all of our stuff and I had a mini break down. For some people, having lots of stuff is a comfort to them butContinue reading “New Blog Series – Getting Rid of our Junk Week 1 of 54”

Week 14 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022

Wowsers did prices go sky high in just over a week. I hadn’t really noticed that large of an increase until this week’s shopping trip. Eggs and butter seemed to be the biggest jump for me. $4/doz for eggs and $5/lb for generic butter. Yikes! I asked the guys about the price and Mr. ChrisContinue reading “Week 14 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022”

Week 13 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022 and the “Kids” are Up!

I spent a lot on food in general this week. I needed supplies and I have been spending way too much on baking essentials so I broke down and went to Walmart for baking stuff. Walmart is not my jam but in this instance it saves us a boat load. Here is what I boughtContinue reading “Week 13 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022 and the “Kids” are Up!”

How Many Pounds of Food We Grew in 2021

Every year my goal has been to grow 1000 lbs of food out of our home victory garden. Each season I get a little closer to that goal! 2021 was a wonderful growing season for us. The peaches from the 2 trees we have were so plentiful they broke the branches. The tomatoes were overwhelminglyContinue reading “How Many Pounds of Food We Grew in 2021”

One Hundred Dollars a Month

I am your typical housewife living in high maintenance suburbia. I have a handsome husband, 2 kids and a flock of pet chickens. I try and feed my family with $100 a month. With the help of coupons, gardening and bartering I am able to squeeze the most out of our grocery budget and still manage to have a little fun along the way.
