Hey y'all, how's it going? Really, how are you doing with these crazy economic times? I guess I am not too stressed, I trust that God will provide what we need. And, I am not retiring too soon. But still, it has given me lots to ponder. I watched Oprah today, which was a rare occurrence. It was on saving money, being thrifty.
Now there is plenty that we as a family already do. We don't buy coffee at coffee shops, well rarely. We rarely eat out. We try not to buy clothes just because. And of course my home is furnished and decorated on the way cheap. But, I know there are still areas where we could cut back. Unplug things that are not in use. Using more coupons. Driving less. Fewer movies (I love going to the movies!). So I wanted to hear from all of you. What are you doing to cut back? How do you save money? Leave me a comment with a money saving tip and on Sunday I will pick a winner and send you a little something in the mail. What will you win? I haven't decided yet, this is my first giveaway, but it is sure to be fabulous!
On another note, I took this picture of this great house on a beautiful fall day. Alas, the fall weather is quickly leaving us. The high for Friday is 38 degrees and there is snow in the forecast for the next 3 days--arg--I am not ready!
