    Animals and water. I am always happy when I am around either one, although not usually at the same time.

Tornado pics

Thursday, July 10, 2014

We had another (2nd in 1.5 years) tornado come through our area and lost the 31 yr old tree in our front yard. The house sustained minor damage from a tree in the backyard. I'm originally from Long Island and have experienced at least 3 different hurricanes in my lifetime. The air and sky after these "hissy fits" by Mother Nature are always spectacular. I'm posting some pics. The tree was literally screwed out of the ground (like a light bulb) and placed nicely on our front lawn. Thank God it didn't hit the house. My husband and I are safe but very tired. We did most of the chainsawing and separating of limbs/brush and usable wood for heating but had our Amish neighbors come up to take away the smaller limbs/brush to burn on their burn pile and the heftier wood to use as heat.

    I am cheap/frugal too. It's actually something I am trying to overcome. On the other end of the spectrum is my husband. LOL
For me to save $100 we would use gift cards hubby got for his birthday instead of going wherever we wanted when going out to dinner.

    Stop driving so much. However, most of the places I drive are work related, so even though I would be saving money on gas, I would be making less money. So, I don't know. Good question. emoticon

    I too am very frugal. I could save by selling off more items that I do not use such as a DSL and all the games. That would be a start. Hmm...

    I know for myself, when I save my change for the month (only) I have about $45. Go to Matinee instead of a later showing saves about $3, twice a month. Use coupons. This is great, food for thought. emoticon

SWEETYOUNGTHING 7/7/2014 7:31AM

    This is a tough one for me since I'm already so frugal (really, more cheap than frugal!) I could literally strive to put an additional $100 in my savings over the remainder of the month.

The picture title should be "How can you save $100 per month? since I'm posting this the 2nd week of July............ it's food for thought, anyway. emoticon
