Coupons

I remember my mom sitting at the table when I was little. Cutting pieces of paper out of the big newspaper. I ask her what's that mom? she replied these are coupons. They help dad and I to save money when we were buying all the groceries for the family. Sometimes I also find some great savings on some special things for you like last time I went out shopping  and I bought that cereal  you been wanting for a long time. That's because I had a coupon to save 50 cents on the box that made it more affordable for us to buy.

We caught a baby cat fish

The aquarium that we set up months ago is looking beautiful. I can't believe how much food gold fish can eat. When we were down on the boat about a month ago with our minnow net, we caught a two inch baby catfish. We decided to bring him home. Unbelievably he thinks he is one of the gang. He comes up for food all the time with the golffish.

Jobs

Thank goodness for my husband's unemployment benefits. He was laid off for four months, they called him back just as our money was running real  tight. There aren't that many jobs out there that pay what he is used to making. We are not looking forward to the high cost of heating our house so we took it on our own to make sure windows are tight doors are weather stripped  so hopefully we will use less gas this year.

Our Mexico Getaway

Posted by Malou at 8/16/2010 10:40:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post
We needed a little get-a-way time the other day without too long of a drive. We ended up at a small park on Mexico Point just outside of the little town Texas New York.  There's a nice little beach there sandy and washed stones lined the water's edge as the waves come in and out. If you squint hard enough you might even see Canada from there. We also took the picnic lunch with us. They have charcoal cookers and picnic tables for your convenience. After we ate lunch we took our fishing poles through the small trails in the woods that lead you to an inlet for fishing.

Contemporary sofas

After doing all our renovations in the house including the re-do of our kitchen we moved on to tearing out the bathroom that three days seemed to take forever. After my husband left for work one day I decided to go to home depot and pick up some paint to change the wall color. Needless to say I didn't get very far before he came home. He said the color look great but it doesn't go with the couch at all. So I looked online and I came up with a beautiful  couch at contemporary sofas. I can't wait to place it in the livingroom when it arrives.
