I compare prices of online stores and order when the items are on sale. Sites have sales, clearances, closeouts and BOGOs. Also get items from Farmers Market which are a lot cheaper than most regular stores....and am growing my own veggies and herbs.

    Good post! Thank you for the link. I love Farmers Markets and growing my own vegetables, and I have a container garden myself!
I love the out of doors too. Have a great week. emoticon emoticon

    Wow, your own garden. Color me jealous, we had one many, many years ago and I did not appreciate it then. Guess, I have grown up. I read your glasses fell off too. That's funny.

My Mother-in-law was Ethiopian. She lived until she was 93 years old. She had 22 children and my former husband was the only one who survived her. He went back to Ethiopia, and took care of her for the last 10 years of her life. Only 3 of her children had survived to adulthood. Others had died during various plagues, sometimes 3 and 4 at a time. When I am discouraged and unhappy about some situation...I think of her, and what she had to go through. I never actually met her, but I will always have a place in my heart for her.

    Wow - what an interesting perspective. We forget how lucky we are and take too much for granted.
