I have gotten good at accepting hand-me-downs. (The boy hardly has ever had anything but!)
I try to search online for shoes and stuff.... I don't wear makeup anymore. (Though I'm still huge due to stress eating, I think)
I cd and resell my dipes on wahmall/ebay/mother's nature and the fleamarket... I don't take the kiddos to have pics done as much... but I'm still scared I will have to go back to teaching by the end of this year!!
School's about to start again (the older 2 will be in 4th & 3rd, and the second set of 2 w/be in the Church's Prep School program twice a week) and I need to get shoes... but have had NO income all summer so nothing is left... DH's salary has frozen (I'm thankful he hasn't been laid off!!)
WOW.... I guess I'm more upset about the money issue than I thought! I LOVE being a SAHM and do NOT want to go back to work!! Please send me doable menus.... cheap cuts of meats that I can spread a LLOOONNNGGG way (we do have a deep freeze, but it's usually empty)
My oldest daughter is usually the one who gets the least.... all 4 of the other's have someone passing down to them, but she doesn't.... so as of right now she has my flipflops she wears and a worn out pair of tennies! Any place you know of that has shoes that last for a reasonable price?!?
Sigh.... ok, I need to go pay bills.... I'm still shopping for a new internet provider, too, but noone has a local number so it costs to have dial up long distance (I want to change my phone # so It can just be local instead of metro (~$20/mo savings!))
TIA for coupon ideas, shopping tips, menu ideas, etc!!
