Closing this blog.

I have decided to close down this blog.

I have a new one that I am starting to post on, since I feel that "One Frugal Mom" is not fully who I am anymore. I am still a mom, and I am still frugal, but I want more than that to represent me. :-)

Here is my new one: Country Tea

I hope you stop by and visit.

Five days into February already????

Time is just speeding by without me realizing it!

School is going smoothly. I hope (and pray) it stays that way! Work is also going smoothly. Getting better at juggling everything.

Using that slow cookers ALOT! LOL I am still always looking for new things to put in if anyone has any suggestions, bring them on! :-D

School closed again tomorrow.

Well, I have another day off this week. Only worked on Tuesday. Snow days can be fun and very productive.

I have almost all my own school work done for the week. I plan to put some beans out to soak so that I can get them canned tomorrow.

Tonight is chicken and dumplings and tomorrow will be ??? I will wing it. LOL

Hopefully we will have some school next week. :-)

Busy, busy, busy

Hello everyone!

College classes have started back up and I am SO busy!

With home, work, and classes, I don't have much time to post like I would like.

Trying to keep the budgets under control without scrimping on nutrition!

I hope everyone is doing fine!

Snow day

School was cancelled today due to inclement weather. We did not get alot of snow, but there was ice below the dusting of snow.

DS11 is out shoveling the drive of our neighbors. Gotta love that kid!

I will get dinner in the crockpot and work on dishes. Then some laundry and just some relax time today.

Grocery Budget so far.....

Okay... I have spent roughly $115.00 this month. (I have the exact figure somewhere, I need to find my notebook)

I feel confident that I will make my goal this month. I hope to find some good meat deals this weekend. If not, I will hit Wegman's for chicken and ground beef, since they have the cheapest non-sale prices for those items.

Getting back into keeping the grocery budget tamed!

I am back to challenging myself to keep my grocery budget restrained. I will admit that I have not been doing so hot the last couple of months. It all comes down to laziness!

I make excuses, but there really is none!

I want to keep it below $300 for the month. Should be doable.

Have a great day!
