haha--- E, I have a prankster son who would absolutely do that with me... over the paper and other things. He is a grown up, but often pulls pranks like tying down the sink sprayer so that I get a soaking shock. He loves to laugh and be silly---- me too!

Rejoice in each new day; it is a gift!

BAM: Good for you! The family knows I try to save the wrapping and the bows.

However, I've got a prankster. He says, "E, do you want this wrapping paper?"

I carefully look at it and say, "yes."

He then wads it all up when unwrapping his present.

Oh well.

The neighbor loves to fish, but does not enjoy eating fish, so we are having fresh perch for lunch and planned over panzit....inexpensive rice noodles with raw cabbage and carrots left from Thanksgiving.

If this was your last day, how would you spend it?

The best savings is when you spend no money or less money period.

Going to the library for books, music, DVDS and Videos makes sense.
Stop buying paper and plastic products which just get thrown away most of the time.
Use 2 for 1 coupons while dining or go out for lunch which is usually less pricey than dinner.
Make your own cleaning products instead of buying each individual product to do the job.
Make your own hand soaps and body washes without harsh sulfates & chemicals. Less expensive than the body washes at the stores by far.
Trade child sitting with neighbors & friends instead of hiring sitters.
Think about it before you print documents, recipes... printer ink is very pricey.
Combine your errands for the week into one trip, the savings on gas is worth it. Plus you can take walks, enjoy nature, take time for your hobbies etc....
Don't buy prepared foods since they cost more than if you did the prep yourself.
A lot of time Asian & Mexican markets have produce and spices for way cheaper than national chains. I buy my produce weekly at the Asian market. I did a price comparison with fruits, vegetables, spices, and condiments. The Asian market beat the national chain by more than half.
Don't smoke ever, don't use recreational drugs and drink rarely or moderately, a lot of savings just on those alone, am I right?

Just using your thinking cap can save you a lot of money~

I had a whole grain bread in the freezer that I got for free when I was shopping at the local thrift store. The local bakeries, grocery stores and Panera Bread give their day old stuff to the thrift so they can distribute it.

Hi All, I saved my vegetables! I guess this is where I log an idea that I have just tried that really works. You can check out my blog for today for an explanation and photos. I have made pretend cabbage moths out of white plastic, put them in my garden on skewer stakes and it keeps the real cabbage moths off my garden. See blog for full information.
Cheers Karen

Neighbor was kind enough to share peppers from his garden----lots of peppers. They are so good chopped and sautéed with onions on so many dishes. Too, I have chopped some and put 'em in the freezer. Tonight we'll have stuffed bell peppers. Ha.
( funny thing though----- After cutting up so many, my hands started to burn like on fire) Ha!

A great suggestion to use the library --- Lots of movies for free rental. Also, if you are looking for a particular topic, the librarian might be able to locate it for you at a branch --if it is not on hand.
