Glad you are back. As I said to somebody else, the coffee pot is always on.

emoticon GOOD MORNING! WELCOME BACK!
MY GRANDMOTHER USED TO SAY THAT YOU RECHED A POINT IN LIFE WHERE YOU DIDN'T OWN YOUR STUFF - IT OWNED YOU. AT FIRST I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT SHE WAS SAYING BUT I REALLY DO NOW. THE MORE STUFF YOU HAVE THE MORE YO HAVE TO GIVE TIME/ENERGY TO TAKE CARE OF IT! WE'VE BEEN GOING THRU & PASSING ON THE THINGS WE NO LONGER NEED/WANT & THAT SOMEONE ELSE HAS A NEED FOR. SO FAR WE'VE BEEN LUCKY IN FINDING SOMEONE WHO HAS A NEED & WILL TAKE IT OFF OUR HANDS. NO CHARGE, JUST PASSING IT ON. WE'VE HAD STUFF GIVEN TO US & I KNOW HOW GOOD IT MAKES YOU FEEL. WELL, IT FEELS GOOD TO PASS IT ON ALSO. AND THE NEW SPACE DOESN'T HURT EITHER! emoticon

Thanks for the kind words everyone! I'm not new to F & SL. The concept has been with me since a child although I've been through periods where I have been a spendthrift wanting stuff too. Eight years ago I made a conscious decision to scale back my life, including work and have never regretted that decision. Each day brings challenges that I enjoy relating to F & SL. It's a journey, not a final destination.

Good for you on the time off. I know that being frugal takes TIME, and being out of work makes it so much easier to save money and be green too. It'll be nice to get to know you better too!! emoticon emoticon

Vacation time for you! Now you have time to look up some good, simple and frugal recipes. Especially for the summer!

Dance as though no one is watching you, love as though you have never been hurt, sing as though no one can hear you and live as though heaven is on earth.

I've introduced myself before and mentioned that I work from Sept to Apr in foodservice at a college/university. Well the school year has ended and I am in seasonal layoff for 4 mths, except for an occasional call in for a special function. So I am into super frugal mode again and I'll be around the team more often and contributing more. I have a lot of threads to get caught up on and that's great. I'm looking for all kinds of tips to the goal of frugality and simplicity. emoticon

Looking forward to getting to know many of you. emoticon
