Thank you both for your words of support! My hubby is stilling looking and will keep you posted as time goes. I have just started a different job this past week so have not had much time to come and comment till now. It was sorta rough week..5 days in a row and first shift. That has been the biggest change from second. Off now today and tomorrow so will get some rest.
Ran to town and got a few buys at Dollar General. Some things are a good buy...need to be abit careful...can be higher at times than the grocery store.
Well thanks again for the welcome! Take care! New

Hey all,
I am new here and just started a new job. My hubby lost his job 3 weeks ago so this group will be a big help I am sure!

Hi Carollynn! Welcome to the team from Goshen, IN. You are not alone in the "under-employed line", however, this setback has helped me become more frugal in my day to day life. I enjoy going through the spark recipes and seeing what I can make on little or no money. Never get discouraged as we are all here to help!

Hello everybody, I am new here just joined today.

I am unemployed at the moment...and have no reason to believe that even after I get a job that my frugal needs will disapear. LOL So Im hoping that this team will be advantageous to me...and the things Ive learned advantagous to those here as well.


Failure- a stone on a path not the last one called success.
Planless gaol=a wish
Faithless dream=fleeting & amiss.
Progress-little to do with speed-much to do with direction.
Wiser to replace with better choices than to deny human nature-small smarter choice substitutions.
Purposely choose your thoughts-what you believe-you achieve-Be careful what you think

Hi, everyone!
I'm Sue, who just turned 58... hot on your heels for the oldest, Peggy!
I'm a California native, but spent 36 years of my life in Ohio, mostly in the foothills of Appalachia regions. Three of my children are still there.
I'm always up for penny pinching ideas! I spent most of my life making do or doing without, and I have a lot of skills that I am trying to adapt to life in an arid suburb. I'm trying to grow a veggie garden in pots, because so far everything that I plant in the dirt here dies, except my callas. I tend to buy loss leaders and stockpile, too. We've had a huge cut in income, as most have had, and we're just doing what we can to not only survive but thrive, like all of you.
Thanks for starting this group. Great idea!

Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day.

Hi, my name is Beth and I am 57 Oh that feels old. 56 wasn't that bad, but, when I say 57 then I feel old.
I am from Minnesota and work 2 jobs just to pay the bills and I am still in debt. I stay home and rarely if ever go out to eat, see a movie, go see the twins or go shopping.

emoticon I'm just glad I've finally found a team where I can actively participate and help others. I am good at saving money and researching on the internet.

While I'm unemployed the one thing that everyone tells me is to stay motivated and try to help others in order to keep my spirits up. Makes me not dwell on the fact that my unemployment just ran out this week. emoticon Say a prayer that I find something! emoticon

I don't have any to trade, but you all knew I'd come up with a website for seeds. Check these out if you would like...

This one is a great article on buying "seeds" from the grocery store. Something I never thought of before but it sounds like it works.

If you are involved in a community garden, you can try this one. I know we have several that just started up around this area.

Hello All!
I am new to this group. I found this group while browsing the DIY garden group.
I am in my *ahem* late 30's. I work in the medical field and my short term goal is to get healthy and lose 100+ lbs.
I am all about free and frugal (cheap!).
Is anyone interested in trading seeds or have any seeds that they want to get rid of?

Hi everyone. I'm in Goshen, IN (the infamous Elkhart County that is always mentioned on the news!) Anyway, my family consists of myself, DH (of 1 month) and a 13 year old son.

This is a great edition for a Spark Team. I was just looking for a team to help with saving pennies and look forward to hearing all the ideas.

I'll start by asking if anyone has heard of Living on a Dime? A website specifically with ideas and penny pinching tips. Here's the website...
