What’s Your Food Budget?

Glue 4 Families had a great post on grocery budgeting and what the US spends compared to other countries. It’s really interesting…check it out real quick! I commented that I spend about $80 for food a week, not including miscellaneous stuff, like paper towels, pet food, tp, etc. A couple other commenters were surprised. So I thought I’d do a quick demo on how...

I Made the Krispies!

Remember the jumbo rice krispies I bought a few days ago? I made krispie treats last night. I only did 2 cups of jumbos and then 4 cups of regular ones. I wanted to save some of the jumbos for the boys so I didn’t use the full 6 cups. Anyway, they turned out good. A little sweeter than the normal ones and they...

I’m Getting Older…obviously.

I was reading Mature Not Senile’s recent post and she got me thinking of my perceptions on getting older. As a teenager, I figured when I got married and had kids, trying to keep in shape and look good wouldn’t matter. I don’t know why. I guess I just thought once I snagged a good guy, he (and therefore I) wouldn’t care what I...

Women Drivers….Hilarious!

My dad sent me an email of a YouTube video of bad women drivers. It’s sooo funny! I’d love to know what was going on in some of these women’s minds…I’d guess not much. My favorite one is the woman in the little car parking…or trying to. Finally, after 3 minutes, a man behind her parks her for her in just seconds. It’s great!...

What’s Smart Spending?

With all the talk about recession and stimulus packages, I thought I’d look up what’s recommended spending by professional money managers.  If we all stick to something like this, we won’t have to worry about losing house, cars, etc. 35% of income should go to housing (mortgage, taxes, repairs, improvements, insurance & utilities) 20% transportation (payments, gas, insurance) 20% other expenses (food, insurance, medical,...

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Here’s a few VDay jokes for ya!! A smart, handsome and sexy young man dressed in the most sophisticated manner walked into the bar. He noticed a woman staring at him without blinking her eyes with an open mouth. Flattered, he approached the woman and said in his sexiest deep voice – “I’ll do anything you wish, beautiful lady, for just $20 but on...

Octuplets after 6 Kids?

I’m sure you’ve heard about the woman who recently had octuplets after having 6 kids, all under 8 yrs old, 2 with disabilities. Yep, 14 kids. At first, I thought, wow, she can handle all that? More power to her! Then I heard the rest of the story…she’s single, living with her parents and has no job. She said she’s not receiving government help,...

Did I Offend You???

If I cut you off in traffic, I’m sorry. If you waved at me and I didn’t see it, I’m sorry. If I didn’t comment on your blog enough, I’m sorry. If I didn’t reply to your comment here, I’m sorry. If I gave you a dirty look while I was in a bad mood, I’m sorry. If I got the last of an...
