Dear Diary,

      I would introduce myself but I would rather jump right into my topic for today. Death and destruction are everywhere, and I’m scared to breathe because I’m afraid of dying or making someone else die. So many questions have been...

After many monthly fails this month I finally had a success in keeping our monthly food budget at $500 or less! I spent $498.31 with a $1.69 as a remainder.  It is a true win!  The reason I was successful is my absolute focus, planning and chatting it up with Crafty A,...

I have not kept up with the posts regarding our food budget to keeping us accountable. If you look below, my behavior has not been as disciplined as I wanted it to. After reviewing the last few months, I was trying to think of the things that either triggered me to pur...

When I think of summer, I think of fun in the sun. You can sleep a little later, watch a little bit more tv and keep active with water fun to stay cool.  Also, you have the opportunity to do different activities, keeping busy.  Maybe a summer bucket list?  Things you d...

I love to cook, new things, different things, things from scratch, and more.  Since I enjoy it, I always struggle with my food bill.  For years I never knew what I spent, I just shopped sales every week. With that, I usually never really knew what I had on hand and wou...

Preschool book club

Literacy is so important to our young learners! We want to teach our children the joy of reading early because it is the foundational basis of all other subjects.  Recently my neighbor (Craftie A) and I have decided to have a book club twice a m...
