Why does every trip up to the college cost me money? Because a child is involved, nuf said.
I will be busy in the shop today, I have a great deal to catch up on. But I need the money so no complaining. I just received a call from a close girl friend and we are going to make jam this weekend. I will have to start gathering supplies. We usually make over 100 pints. I give these as gifts and we use it ourselves. It is a lot of work but also fun. It is something I look forward to all year. I also may can some tomatoes if I have enough. Garden is behind this year.
The Simple Dollar has a good read on couponing and he hit my feelings right on the head. Read it it is very informative. I will use coupons if I find them for something I need but I will not buy convenience food with them. No hamburger helper or frozen lasagna.
Out My Window: It has been very HOT here in the high 90's, but usually the whole summer is that way so I am just grateful it is only this week. Makes the tomatoes ripen faster, go tomatoes go!
We get paid on Thursday so I hope there is enough to pay car payment and the visa bill, those are the two I cannot fudge on. The internet, phone, dex, I can make wait until the first week of September in fact most of those bills are not even do until September. Why do utilities always bill ahead? Well I guess you really already owe them. I just received the water bill for the first part of the summer and it is under $400.00. This has never happened before. But we had a very wet cold spring and early summer so we did not water. Yippee! I always dread this bill. Now how do I get enough money to leave with my husband and get spending money to go see my sisters and buy jam supplies, put gas in cars? I have one week. I have to get busy. Yikes!
Have a great and productive day!
