So, I was puttering along, reading some posts, and thought about posting, then said to myself,

"Self, what do you really have to say?"

So I didn't. Then, I thought to myself a little more analytically.

"Self," I said, "It doesn't matter if you have anything earth-shattering to say. But blogging helps you get info out of your head and onto paper (so to speak), and you know it helps you focus, so just write SOMETHING. It doesn't matter how short the message."

"As a matter of fact," I added, "People might appreciate a small post from you for once!"

So here I am.

This week went okay. We did very well on not spending a ton of money, and I am amazed at how long our money lasts (and how we stay on budget) when I don't eat out for breakfast.

Who'da thunk it?

I've spent time down here in the "office" getting ebay stuff sorted and set to go, and did some shopping for FREE stuff at Shopko (Vive Pro was B1G1 free and I had a B1G1 free coupon, so FORTY free shampoos and, we're not hogs, we donate lots and will keep some for the rummage in the spring...).

As a matter of fact, I'm thinking of writing up a little one page document that's easy to follow to sell for a quarter or something at my rummage sale in June - how to get these things for so cheap with coupons. I know if I were at a rummage sale and saw a whole bunch of unused shampoo, toothpaste, etc., and someone had a sheet there with the "secrets", I'd pay a quarter. Or fifty cents. And if I can sell even 10 of those at 50 cents, that's $5 towards our debt.

Okay - I'm off to stop talking and start doing. :)

Hi Kris. Glad to see you posting. (I've been slacking a bit in posting too.) Thanks for your kind words about our good fortune. :)
