WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW

Ladies and Gentlemen. May I have your attention,  please? This blog is going…. On Vacation. For I don’t know how long. And no, I am not going on vacation. Just the blog. When I started writing over a year and a half ago, I felt like I had things to say. Now, I feel like… [Enter Here]

Whoops.  What day is it?  I’m running a little behind this week, since we finally cracked and got “The NetFlix” this past weekend.  Oh, I know, check the date of what you’re reading.  Yes, it’s 2014.  Yes, we just got “The NetFlix.”  Most of you dropped the cable years ago and picked up the $7 phenomenon,… [Enter Here]

Is My TV trying to tell me something?

This is a true story, of a real-life super hero.  She doesn’t need a cape; instead she wears last night’s pajama t-shirt over yesterday’s tank top.  She doesn’t need a mask.  In fact, these days she’s resorted to not even wearing makeup.     Her super powers are mighty.       She can fly,… [Enter Here]

Adventures in Laundry

The Snow Days are over; it’s back to school, and back to reality.  I’m not so sure why we couldn’t have a late start today to ease us back in, but then again, that’s probably why I’m not on the school board.  We had a few great days, though, and I found myself being one… [Enter Here]

February Happenings: It’s Time for a Project

The Snow Days are over; it’s back to school, and back to reality.  I’m not so sure why we couldn’t have a late start today to ease us back in, but then again, that’s probably why I’m not on the school board.  We had a few great days, though, and I found myself being one [...]

Snow Days and Taxes. It’s Basically Christmas.

Disclaimer:   I have been provided complimentary  download codes from FreeTaxUSA for the purposes of this piece.  All opinions are my own.  SNOW-MA-GEDDON.     Snow. My Gosh.   Two, maybe three, maybe the next 12 days stuck in the house with the snow, the sleet, and the ice.  Seems like a great time to [...]

The One Where Food Lion “Saves” Us from Clipping Coupons #ad #giveaway

Disclaimer: I’ve joined together with Food Lion to celebrate the release of their online MVP Coupon Portal.  All opinions given are my own.      Whew, Finally.   Crawling out of the hole that was 4 days of sick, sleep, and not eating much more than a cup of crushed ice.  ”Luckily” most of it [...]

February got you down?

The One Where I Lost the Weight of a Newborn Baby

Oh February… You sexy Beast…       I’m lying.   It’s no secret I hate February. Well, HATE may be too kind of a word. Loathe. Abhor. Slightly more accurate.   Don’t say anything negative about her though.  She knock you deep in the bed for four straight days, leaving you so delirious from [...]

#EatinMonth Challenge Week 2

#EatInMonth Challenge Week 2: Prizes, Menus, and More!

  One week in for the Eat In All Month challenge, and of all the things, I’ve already been out for coffee.  I  never  go out for coffee.  I think I met a friend in October at Starbucks and we both had pastries.  Which is why, when two friends of mine wanted to get together [...]

Are you cheap when no one is watching?

I’m Cheap When No One is Looking

  Personality quirks can hit you at the strangest times, like last week, when pretty much everyone in my house was walking around perma-attached to a tissue.  My husband,  not knowingly native to cheapness, kept asking Dylan, our 2 year old, if she needed a “Kleenex”, and on one particular occasion, she stood staring at [...]

TLC’S EXTREME CHEAPSKATES IS NOW CASTING!

My frugal friends- this is for you!!  I am, by no means, even close to being the cheapest one on the block.  After a year of blogging, I can still stand to learn a thing or two, or twenty.  But if YOU are the one who knows all the ins- and – outs of dollars and [...]

HOW TO have the hottest cheapest valentines date if you have kids

The Hottest, Cheapest Valentine’s Date Night You Can Have #ad #kydatenight

As you may know,   the “Mr” Cheap and I have been trying to have more date nights at home, so when #CollectiveBias asked me to participate in a compensated stay at home date courtesy of K-Y Yours+Mine for the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.,  I literally JUMPED at the chance.  Last year I put together 52 [...]

Snow Day Fun 1

Who’s Up for a Snow Day?

To a kid, it doesn’t matter, if it’s one inch or an entire foot, snow is snow.  And Snow,  is,  one of the best things that can happen.  Even before the flakes start falling, the waiting, and watching, and the questions, “Momma, is it snowing yet?” because sometimes they are so little that they  don’t [...]

February #EatinMonth Challenge- Week 1 Menu and Recipes

    A little bit of “full disclosure,”  if you will.  I put together this menu a few weeks ago so that I could test out all of the recipes, take pictures of the food, and be able to share words of encouragement, in general.  I’m not doing so great.   We do eat at home quite [...]

Custom Phone Case

Finding a Bright Spot- Custom Monogrammed Phone Cases from MyCustomCase.com

Stay with me here; I’m going to do a bit of complaining, then I promise I’ll move on.   I’m cold.  I’m sick.  And I’m tired.  And despite all of the people I hear complaining all of the time,  I don’t feel any better after my own complaints.       I’m so used to [...]
