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”

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.

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!”

Buying from Poshmark – Review

Have you ever wondered what Poshmark, the online used clothing marketplace is all about? Poshmark is an online marketplace where people can buy or sell, new and used clothing, shoes and accessories. Individual people sell items from their virtual “closet” to you so each item you buy mostly likely is from a different seller unlessContinue reading “Buying from Poshmark – Review”

Week 12 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022

Last week was a bit of a strange week in the food department because my son was gone until Wednesday and the Hubbs and I just winged it. We only ate out twice. On Friday we got a pizza and on Saturday we went out for lunch. I usually grocery shop on Sundays after churchContinue reading “Week 12 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022”

Preserving Goals for 2022

Last year was a bad year all around for preserving for us. The only thing I really got put up was tomatoes, chili sauce and jam which are of the utmost importance but there are so many other things I didn’t get done. I didn’t even get any herbs dried! Here is a list IContinue reading “Preserving Goals for 2022”

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.
