Well, here we are with just two short months left in this year. That sure seems crazy.
Daylight savings time has started again - YAY said no one ever! I absolutely hate that it will be getting dark early again. I think this is really one of the worst parts of winter. I can handle the cold, SOME snow and ice, but the darkness is what really gets to me.
Halloween is over and we are onward to Thanksgiving. Last night was really disappointing in our neighborhood. We had 64 kids, but that is nothing! That is the lowest number in 30 years. My problem is the neighbors. Poor kids really had to work at it, to get candy. Hardly no one had their lights on. It seems as the older neighbors have left - so has the neighborhood friendliness. The younger folks just don't care.
Needless to say, I have 'bunches' of goodies left! Many will get put back for treats this winter, and others will be added to goody baskets this Christmas. It won't go to waste for sure.
It has been a chilly and damp week here in our area. Today the sun is shining, which is lovely, and the temps are getting back into the 70's this coming week. Sure can't complain about that.
The Sunday paper looked like a holiday weekend today! It was sure fat and full of ads. Both Meijer and Target had special holiday toy ads (books!) in the paper. Lot's of coupons too this week - I haven't gone through them yet. I guess we should get ready for the holiday commercial onslaught now!
Yesterday there were Christmas shows on TV, I have seen holiday commercials on TV already, the stores have had Christmas stuff out for ages, and now the paper ads begin.
This has been a pretty quiet week for me. I have done all my usual frugal things, but not a lot out of the ordinary.
- I did fill up the Blazer with gas at 1.89/gal.!!!
- While out, I ran into Kroger to check clearance ONLY! I got 2 bottles of Rit denim colored dye for .75 each. The jeans are sure to need it before winter ends!
- I also got a 4 lb. box of non-fat dry milk for $7 (regular 17.99) for my stockpile.
- I also stopped at the orchard. Not so frugal, but yummy. I got cider and apples. Lots of good healthy eating
Other than buying the couple of clearance items at Kroger, again I did not buy any weekly groceries.
Oh, I thought I would mention, I think today is like Post 60 since I started the blog, and I noticed the other day that I have had over 8,500 views! I was totally amazed. I didn't figure too many people saw the blog, but I guess a few have!!!! Thank you too all who are following and reading. YOU are the reason I am doing this.
Have a wonderful and blessed week. God bless you all.
