I survived Halloween, 136 trick-or-treaters at my house. I spent 82.00 total on candy and goodies and that was with sales and tons of coupons. I have noticed that the packages are much smaller with fewer goodies in them. Makes me wonder if I will even keep my porch light on next year. Yes it is fun, and it is cool to see all the kids dressed up but it is sooooooo expensive.
The weather has turned cold here now and we are just waiting for snow, 41 degrees this afternoon on my way to work. I broke out my boots, and scarf's. There is just no point in being cold.
I have really been watching extreme couponing, and the reruns, trying to learn all the tricks and secrets, for maximizing my cash flow in order to pay off some more debt. Bad news at my job too, we don't know how much longer we will be here. Other entities no longer want (or can afford) to pay for technology and service so no telling how much longer I will be employed.
It is okay though, my plan is to keep paying those bills to the fullest possible potential.... I just paid off the IRS this month and that was a great feeling, It will give me an extra 150 bucks a month to pay on something else.
I keep reading my frugal books, cooking at home, packing my lunch for work, and hanging in there.
Have a Fabulous & Frugal Day!!!!
