To all of you who have blogged with Vicky, at Full House, don't tell her I told you, but today is her birthday! Stop on over, and say happy birthday!
I promised, my dearest cousin "Vick" I'd participate in Frugal Challenges in which she discovered over at Hillybilly Housewife home blog.
Frugal Challenge list
Bean dish ~ Saturday night we had chicken quesadillas with refried beans, Yummy!
Ditch the dryer~ I'd love to, however, hubby refuses to put up a clothes line, I sometimes, hang clothes on hangers off the boiler pipes. (I know tacky, isn't it?)
Pack your Lunch~ Our granddaughter whom lives with us, does pack a school lunch nearly everyday. Since, I am a SAHG (stay at home grammy) I rarely eat lunch away from home.
Shop only once this week~ I'll give it my best, cannot promise this one.
No eating out or take out~ Does this just mean on Mondays, I may be able to stand true on this for a week, but I do require some off time.
Skip soft drinks~ We rarely buy soda, but I did purchase a six pack last visit to the commissary
A pennyless date~ Heck, I never have penny period, let alone while on a date.
Use less gas~ I'll have o let this one wear off on it's own since we just had refried beans and I made a batch of pumpkin cookies. Oh, you mean, gas in the car, I have cut down on driving, usually stay home during the week and do town trips on weekends with hubby and granddaughter.
Homemade shampoo and Conditioner~ Come on now, I can give up a lot of things, but, not Head and Shoulders (pink bottle) it smells great, and it's not for dandruff, like I originally thought...
Start Christmas gift fund~ After paying school taxes, and fuel for the winter, I better get creative.
Make your own bread~ I have a bread machine, and yes, it has been a great investment, I love making bread.
Meal Planning~ I plan ahead, about an hour ahead of supper, I'll tell you what we are having.
If you'd like to take the challenge stop over at the Hillybilly Housewife blog for more information. Look forward to seeing how well you can hold up to a good challenge.
