I am about to suggest something that is very expensive, but so worth it... an air fryer.

My roommate bought an air fryer and the contraption has already paid for itself.

I buy french fries at Dollar Tree in huge bags from the freezer section. The store has shoestring, steak and crinkle. For a buck? Heck yeah!

Now we throw some fries in, 375 degrees for 10 minutes and devour!

How was your week? Myself? My laptop, cellular phone and vape all broke & had to be replaced. Unreal.

Do any of you shop for thrift clothes on-line?

I am asking as I have never done so before.

I usually go to Salvation Army, Goodwill and another local thrift store.

I am just so tired of looking so "used".

Any on-line shops that you suggest that cost nifty & thrifty?

Thank you!

Well, with my new income, I filled out a budget form from EveryDollar, and am tracking all my expenses as I go. I like it, and hope the novelty of it doesn not wear off, but becomes an obsession!!!

It's New Year's Day of 2018! I'm wondering, who operates their household with a sem-strict budget? Any tips anyone wants to share with us? emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello team!

I had to come off of my diet as was losing weight too rapidly. I did not want to become sick. So, I am returning to the job of "chef" to two housemates and myself. I am happy when I cook, so there you have it. I will put the JoAnna M. Lund recipes to good use! Go JoAnna M. Lund Sparkteam!

Instead of keeping my pedal exerciser at my office desk, I placed it in my living room. No longer in such a small place. Go Stationary Bike Sparkteam!

I submitted an article yesterday to the newspaper I write for on the topic of forgiveness. It was rather hard on me as I have some people in my life I am having a struggle with forgiving. So, I did not preach (as I would have been an hippocrite) but basically said if you forgive you are giving your own self a gift.

While organizing my office yesterday, I found book after book that I bought and never read yet. Some fitness, religious, cookbooks...even a new English bible... My Catholic bible has worn out pages, my Joyce Meyer bible I do not understand. So, I picked up an English bible at a thrift store and will start reading. I understand Psalms and Proverbs, but the rest of the bible is so hard for me. Anyone else have difficulty? Go Christian Living Sparkteam!

Today is guess what? Coupon day! I got a tip in an e-mail that there should be three inserts today! I do not have a newspaper subscription but I have friends who save their coupon inserts for me. Hey, one person's trash is another person's treasure! Go Nifty & Thrifty Sparkteam!

Well, I am a plain as ever girl today. Perhaps if I had a man in my life I would fix myself up. I usually will not leave the house without my hair and make-up done. People still criticize my application. I like lots of make-up and big hair. However, when you are around two girls almost twenty-four hours a day, why bother? Go my beauty and singles Sparkteams! Give me a good kick in the petunia!

I now have a baby crockpot bought by a friend at a yard sale! Woo Hoo! I just have not figured out what to make in it yet...any recipes? I figure it would be good for dips. Go crockpot team!

Well, I will sign off for now... Go Steelers!

Hello team! As I was on vacation to my hometown, I only had Wi-Fi once or twice. So, I am STILL attempting to STILL get caught up on work, Sparkpeople, chores and activity.

As I am a leader of the JoAnna M. Lund Sparkteam, while over the vacation, I reviewed alot of her cookbooks that I had loaned from the library. A quite interesting lady.

On the other hand, I have started a new diet that I found while reviewing a Woman's World magazine over vacation. There is not even a name for the diet. However it is easy and doable...Cheerios w/ 1% milk for breakfast, a frozen entree for lunch and dinner then it called for Laughing Cow cheese for snack but it is too expensive for me so I substitute yogurt. I even had coupons for the Cheerios and yogurt! I am wanting to lose 10 pounds by atleast Christmas.

So, as you can tell, I spent alot of vacation reading on fitness and nutrition.

I hope you are having a good middle-of-the-week! If you have anything you want to talk about, tell all of us.

Remember, get in those 10 minutes of acitivity!

Just thought I would "play" for a minute with you...
For dinner today, I am being simple... Sloppy joes with baked potatoes. This is something BOTH housemates like... which is nearly impossible to do.

No make-up today and bad hair day.

I will have to weigh myself today... If those pounds have creeped on I will not be happy...

I have research, writing, editing and publishing to do today... I am tired because what I need to research just is not out there.

How has your week been? I love that it is the weekend but not that the month of August is half way over... I would love to move to a warm climate for the winter but do not want to leave family and friends...

Well, get in those 10 minutes, spread your Spark and be contagious with fitness and nutrition!!!!!

That's funny about the deodorant. Once my SIL and I was in the store and she was buying deodorant and she was buying an expensive one. I told her "I try more expensive brands but I keep going back to Sauve, it works great", and she replied "Really, well I'm going to have to try it." I notice a woman looking at us funny and then SIL and I burst out laughing because we sounded like the commercial for Sauve.

My favorite anti-perspirant costs almost $5.00. It is an aerosol and smells really good. I have been using a cheaper solid and just not the same. It does not have a pretty scent. Oh well, atleast I do not smell like body odor!

My coupons have been extreme "duds". Are you getting any good ones?

Have a blessed Sunday!

I've never heard of candied kielbasa but I think that is something my family would like.

I buy Christmas mugs at yard sales during the year and then at Christmas I put candies, cocoa mix, chocolate covered stirring spoons, etc. and wrap in cellophane and tied with a ribbon for my sons teachers. Very inexpensive for presents. If I have some leftover they are nice for people who drop in for the holidays. My sons like to get involved in collecting these things over the year.

Hello team! I hope you have a Sparking weekend! Spread your Spark every chance you get in whatever way you can! Be contagious!

I had planned on having a yard sale today...However, it is raining. I have cookbooks, workout videos, diet books, workout clothes, etc. to sell. Hey, I am attempting to spread my spark, OK? I have no clue why God is crying... LOL

I am thawing out some kielbasa so I may make candied kielbasa in the crockpot. It is absolutely delicious. Just cut the kielbasa in coin-size pieces, place in crockpot with horseradish, ketchup and brown sugar, stir, cook on HIGH for 1 hour then LOW 1/2 hour and voila! Serve! I love to make sandwiches with it. Oh, a little white bread is not going to hurt...

I am now an editor-in-chief. My higher-up is simply testing out my new website to make sure everything will run smoothly. I am excited as it is not as boring as I thought it would be. I guess I like helping people.

I made up 7 gift baskets late last night for today's alleged yard sale...All of that hard work... uuugh...They are so cute...

Well, I will close for now and will pray that the rain stops...

Hello Team! Today I went yard saleing! Yea!! As gift baskets are my hobby, I found useful items for gift baskets with a coffee theme. My next venture will be to the closest city to me to go to a craft store to buy professional bows as I do not have the talent to make myself.
Are any of you up still? It is going on midnight here and I cannot fall asleep. I have not had coffee since this morning... I guess I am still excited from the yard sales. Not sure. What do you think?
I made a garden salad and crockpot candied kielbasa for dinner. We used bread also to make sandwiches out of it. It was very yum.
Well, I will close for now. If you are still not in bed, give me a shout.

Hello there! I hope you are well!
I got coupons from friends all right, almost every single one was for men's deoderant! uuuugh... One was $1.00 off for Maybelline foundation or concealer...the only useful one for me unless I make up toiletry baskets for men...gift baskets being my hobby.
I need to be getting in some writing to the religious newspaper that I am a contributing editor of. I grabbed a bunch of books off of the library shelves today. I will be doing some reviews.
I might be taking off from cooking for my housemates for a while. The same drama as always. They are ungrateful.
This weekend I will be yard saleing for stuff for gift baskets...a good stress breaker! I wish a yard sale woman would have cellophane bags magically appear! Always in need of cellophane bags! Yard sales are also a good way of getting in your activity!
I miss my mother as always.
I still have not made up a Zindigo boutique. I just do not know if I would be successful or not. I am excellent at coordinating clothes but awful at sales. The sales part is what I am afraid will do me in.
Well, I will close for now. Keep Sparking on!

Hello Team!

Good luck with your fitness and nutrition over the weekend. Get in whatever activity you can. Remember what SparkGuy always says...Get in atleast 10 minutes. That is it! 10 minutes! Now what is 10 minutes? Easy and it works! Do not feel like actual exercise? Get out the sweeper or the mop or the furniture polish...Do housecleaning! You have to clean your house anyway, right?

Do not forget...Use your crockpot (no stress). Use coupons & buy on clearance (saves money & creates cheap nutritious meals).

Stay hydrated, but stay away from the sugary stuff!

Well, this is my 2 cents for today. I appreciate you as Sparkpeople buds and hope you like me too!

I am very excited about a team I have become team leader of called: Move It Any Way You Can. Instead of belonging to one team for each activity one does, this team includes any and all activity together.

I have major coupons to clip. Calgon take me away! emoticon

I hope there is some good produce on clearance this week. I rely on the produce man for some cheap stuff. I love getting bags of green peppers for stuffed green pepper soup or tomatos for a few big salads, etc. When I lived with my family, we always had our own garden to get vegetables. Now I have to rely on the produce man of a local store.

emoticon

Maybe I will have some good coupons to use for Dollar Tree. Basically so far the only coupons I have good for Dollar Tree are 50 cents off of boxes of Italian ice. I would love to stock up on Italian ice but have limited freezer space. My housemates get groceries that go in the freezer then they do not eat them. They wait for me to cook! So, there are all kinds of food in the freezer...Hot Pockets, Red Baron Pizza, Bags of Tyson Chicken Strips, Burger Patties, etc. They want me to cook something good instead of something you only have to heat up.

Anyways, have a good Sunday and stop by the Nifty & Thrifty Discussion!

Hello team! How are you? I hope well!
Well, I hope some of this summer weather is melting away a few pounds for you.
My summer is doing just the opposite... You know how study after study shows that drinking green tea or black tea reduces the stomach/waistline? Mine is doing just the opposite!
Two weeks ago (now mind you, my stomach is big enough as it is due to overproduction of cortisol) I started drinking Lipton diet green tea citrus. Talk about big. My stomach is beyond huge and my capri barely button. So, who did they base these studies on?
I guess I have to resort to drinking bottled water again with flavored water enhancer. It is just so boring.
Then, I am looking for a new job. My computer is my set of wheels so it has to be a work-at-home/telecommuter position. Wish me luck!
On top of these issues, I miss fellowship with you. Stop by the team sometime. We can inspire each other!
Spark on!

Hello team! How are you? I hope well! Sorry I have not been on in such a lengthy
while. I have been sucking it up doing some side hustles...to be honest, I feel like a laboratory rat. Why do I feel like such?

I am an editor for a website. The website is based out of a foreign country. I specifically stated I wanted to be paid in US currency. Well, I got paid the other day, in foreign currency! So, I had to have it converted. After conversion, I took over a $20.00 loss then had to pay a fee for the conversion.

I am always searching on ratracebellion.com, theworkathomewoman.com and theworkathomewife.com for the latest on jobs. You get the same answer... Until you find the right good-paying job, do some side hustles. So, that is what I have done. I am now doing two survey companies. So annoying though... I answer the same questions over and over. Sometimes they run out of surveys. Sometimes you are asked preliminary questions only to be told you are not eligible for the survey. I feel like I am being shown a treat then having the treat taken away from me!

I am going to use my fitness pedal exerciser for 30 minutes every day/night. It is so cute!

Dinner will be crockpot potato soup this evening. I use hash browns, Velveeta, chicken bouillon cubes and water in it. Leave it on for 4 hours on HIGH and voila!

Well, this has been the latest about me, myself and I. I hope your weekend is full of fitness, healthy food and fellowship!

I get most coupons on Thursdays from my coupon fairies (I got the term off of Extreme Couponing...). It just irks me that I do not have a store near me that doubles coupons.

Hey team! How have you been? I hope well!

What do you like and dislike about this team? Is there any way you think I may improve it?

Do you sometimes go over the forums but not post?????

Have you been on a new diet or lifestyle? If so, would you share? Maybe you can inspire!

Have you been weighing yourself? Are you staying hydrated? Have you been getting in atleast 10 minutes of activity? (I do...but am guilty of not always logging in the activity... LOL) Have you been getting in some "me" time?

I ask you all of these questions as you are so quiet. Sure, there are a few faithful members, but do you know how many inactive members there are? Many. When I started out with the team, I saw potential. I will give it a while, because I do not like to give up. I am doing my best.

Be good and have a wonderful weekend!

I am on a blessed vacation with family! My mother and I love to
find frugal stuff AND get in our walking. She knows my self-esteem
was kind-of low as I have had no "new" clothes, always wearing
clothes with stains, bleach spots, etc.

So, yesterday we went to a going out-of-business sale where I
was able to find 5 pairs of leggings that were 50% off $9.99!
I could not believe it!

Then, today, we went to GoodWill where purple tags were 50% off and
yellow tags were $1.50. Well, I needed summer shirts badly. Almost
every single shirt I got had a yellow tag! The icing on the cake?
Two Joyce Meyer books for a $1.00 each!

I do not mean to sound like I am bragging. I only get things when
it's frugal. The exercise is not too shabby either. So, to you my
Sparkfriends, have a good fitness and frugal weekend! Spark on!

I have a method that makes me lose the pounds.
I cannot prove it to you as I often don't
log in my weight. However, trust me, I do
have a method...peanut butter and jam on bread,
english muffin or tortilla wrap, sometimes with a
salad. I don't feel hungry, my blood sugar stays
really good and I really like it!

ENTER housemate.

My housemate relies on my cooking of her meals.
The first thing in the morning, she asks, "What
are we having for dinner?" Well, I made her
Cincinnati chili and beef with vegetable stew over the
weekend and guess who gained ALL that weight again?
Exact.

So, I am "just saying no" to the housemate's
food peer pressure! She should be supporting
my efforts to lose weight!

When I stare at a pound of fat, I know I have a
major job ahead of me. I get mega-motivated!
I have a picture on my Sparkpage that I will share
with you to also remind you of what it looks like...
all "1" measly pound of it. I have 45 pounds of
this stuff to lug around! How about you?


What upsets me, is that I always I feel like I
have to "work" for survival all day instead of
"work-out" all day for survival. It's not like
I make millions or anything. I think about this often.

To be specific, I make pennies per article for a couple
of websites. I just feel like saying to heck with such
slavery and work-out all day without a care, like a
millionaire's wife who doesn't have anything to worry about.
Am I making sense?

I shop on clearance, buy at yard sales, shop at
Salvation Army, shop at Dollar Tree, etc. My housemates and I share rent,
most groceries, etc. It isn't like I'm not "frugal"! LOL

God does give us a gift and expects us to use that gift.
Mine would be volunteering as contributing editor of
a religious newspaper.

Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit and we
only have one! I think about all those pounds of fat
my body is lugging around... So, I have Sparkpeople
and exercise to do.

Thank you. I now know what to do.

I am so excited that I found a frugal fitness item at a
yard sale this week...a fitness pedal exerciser...never used! If you
are not familiar, you can use it as a bicycle from wherever you are
sitting.

I will be doing my exercise mostly at night now. I find it to
be the best for my schedule.
I went through magazine after magazine today for reviews work,
but all of them so far have been duds...I could have spent
all those hours on my Sparkteams!
Thanks for being you and for not giving up on the team!
We can do it! Spark on!

When I work-out, I do so in front of a big mirror so I may look at & focus on the part of my body I want changed. I can now look at myself and not be disgusted which is a big step.

I made vegetable soup today in the crockpot with mostly vegetables I bought on clearance. Spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, potatoes, chicken bouillon cubes and water! I used spices to give it a little flavor.

However, lately I have been having lots of peanut butter and jam on really anything from bread, tortilla wraps, English muffins, etc. I bought tons of jam yesterday but had no coupons for it and it was not on sale. Oh well, it isn't like I am having an expensive steak every day or something! I needed something I can make in a minute or two for myself because I am usually waiting all day for my crockpot to finish doing it's stuff. Then, I am ravaged!

Well, I hope you have a wonderful evening.

I KNOW WATER IS GOOD, but the water retention is getting on my nerves!
Then, my thirst is never quenched. I have every water enhancer
imaginable! So, then I drink plain for a while and still
thirsty for more. I like iced coffee but cannot afford to drink
specialty coffee all day long...(as I like flavored coffee).
Iced tea is good, but the very minute I make it, my housemate
runs a dashing sprint to it and drinks the whole thing, leaving the
pitcher empty.

Any tips?

I used to drink tons of Kroger-brand sparkling seltzer water...I hated the taste of bottled water,
faucet water, you name it. But I literally got sick of the sparkling seltzer water. So, I kept my stash of it
then bought bottled water and flavored water enhancer. NOW, I am SICK of bottled water! Well, I whipped
out my stash and am back with the sparkling seltzer water and it tastes sooooo good. Quenches my thirst like you
wouldn't believe. It is energizing where bottled water makes me so tired. Well, just had to tell you my
story of the day! "Water" you doing? LOL

While organizing yesterday, my watch pedometer broke. So, housemate is getting a new one today for me...of course, not for free.

I am going to clip coupons tonight. I hope I can make a Dollar Tree haul or atleast what I can get for free.

Pray there is produce on clearance tomorrow! I am so hungry for a good garden salad!

Have a good one!

Hey all you nifty & thrifty sweet things! How have you been? I hope well!

Well, for lunch today, I made fried potato wedges. I know... I know... but hey, I am frugal. Dinner? My housemate asks me every morning what we are having for dinner. She acts like it's going to be her last meal! I have to do all of the cooking and do you know how hard it is to have a Sparking day doing all this cooking?

Well, clip those Sunday newspaper coupons my Sparkfriends. See if there is anything you can use at Dollar Tree! Free!!!!!

To all you Mother's... Happy Happy Mother's Day!!!!!

Hey team. I want to make crockpot french toast today to use up 2 loaves of stale bread. However, I am out of crockpot liners. The bread sticks to the sides and is a pain to scrub off, even if I let it soak in baking soda or dish detergent.

Any recipes I could borrow from you to use up stale bread? I'd appreciate.

Also, do you have any good recipes for french onion soup? I have 3 bags of onions! Don't want those to go to waste either!

A member of another Sparkteam reminded me to have more salads. I can usually (not always) find good produce on clearance and heads of lettuce are only 99 cents. Growing up, my family had a huge garden and we always had huge garden salads! I can never get the oil and vinegar right. My mother's is always perfect. So, anyway, I plan on having more salads.

Thank you for the soup recipe. I love to make homemade soup & am always interested in new recipes.

Thank you also for the answer on what type of writing you do. I am currently writing a Christian living book for women. Yeah, I know.....there are already a zillion of them.

Yesterday I stopped by Big Lots to pick up a couple of things. They had someone standing at the door handing out coupons for 20% off of everything yesterday only. Nice!

Today I have the crockpot fired up with bake potatoes. Then, I will make a salad and soup. I guess it will be a frugal Easter dinner.

I am sorry about your stove, but this crock pot challenge could be interesting...

Hey team! How are you? I have a sample packet of a new shampoo and conditioner called Whole Blends. I cannot wait to use it! It came with a coupon but good 'ol housemate just has to have the coupon. Maybe I can "forget" to remind her to use the coupon and use the coupon myself without her even realizing it!

Well, my poor crockpot has a challenge. Today, I was browning beef on the stovetop and flames shot out from the burner. I will NOT use the stove/oven again. Until the landlord gets another stove/oven, I will use good ol' faithful crockpot EVERY SINGLE DAY.

This is going to be very interesting. I will simply use my imagination.

Has this ever happened to you?

We have not had electricity since 4 pm yesterday so we are totally saving money on the Entergy bill!

For dinner this evening, I simply boiled some rotini and threw some Ragu on it! Scrumptious w/ Parmesan & Romano cheese! Nifty & Thrifty!
