Feeling Better

general, Uncategorized
This last week my daughter got a 24 hour bug and is now feeling better. I hope to catch up and read the good deals and post again soon. In the meantime, a couple lessons I learned while she was sick. 1. The forehead thermometers aren't accurate. Every time we used it we would get different results. The digital thermometers work the best. 2. Simply Saline spray for babies is a must have. It works great for their small noses. I got mine for free because RiteAid had a lot of cold medicines back in October for free after rebate. Plus, there is a coupon Simply Saline Nasal Product, Any - 11-16-08 SS exp 12/31/09. 3. The nose suction bulb has been a lifesaver. I truly believe cleaning out the…

Thanks to Thrifty Mama for pointing this blog out! Erin has been working hard to only spend $800 to feed her family of 4. Erin's blog is famous because its on TV - Channel 13 in Texas.

Savings

general, Uncategorized
Here is a little bit about me. I enjoy saving money. It is a thrill to find good deals and know that I didn't have to spend as much money. Then save the money I would have spent for future use. I remember being a little girl, and my father showing me my savings account statement for the first time. He explained to me that the bank would pay me interest for having my money. From that day forward I was hooked on saving money. Don't get me wrong I've made mistakes. We are all human. Saving isn't easy. Managing money isn't easy either. Now that I'm a little older and wiser I've learned to be debt-free. Let's get started on saving more and being a bit wiser doing it!…
