busy, busy, busy...

Well, I haven't been doing much blogging lately. I have been reading...just not much writing. It is just so busy around here. My job has gotten pretty hectic after I was told that I would have to meet a certain amount of hours to keep the job due to cutbacks. So...I am just trying to make up hours so I can keep working. Because of that it's a little crazy around here! Busy, busy, busy... I have a pretty well stocked freezer right now so I am planning on staying out of the grocery store for a while and just living on what we've got. Shouldn't be too hard...should also save me some money. Except for milk and fresh fruit we should need NOTHING around here for at least two weeks. So...that is the goal I am setting for myself...no big shopping trips for two weeks! I may have to send my husband into Kroger for Milk and veggie/fruit runs since it's so hard for me to not spend money on all of the good deals that I can usually find!! It's kind of hard for my husband too so maybe I should come up with a better plan. I am hoping that the sales papers aren't too good this week so I won't be tempted to do more stock piling!!! I know...It's become an addiction for me! I can't help it...I just love getting good deals! Anyone out there find any really good deals on Easter Candy? I will also be doing that shopping this week. My husband and I got our income tax money back and we are now officially DEBT FREE!!! Yeah!! Now we are just working on getting our Emergency Fund fully funded...hence the need to keep my part time job! It's very exciting to be on such a good financial path! It all seems to be falling into place for us...Now, if I can just stay out of Kroger for the next two weeks...Argghh...so hard!

Hi Tracy! It's been busy at my place too. Here is the web address of the etsy shop where I got my purse:

Congratulations on paying off your debt!!! On the food shopping - can you buy what you need elsewhere? Maybe the milk at a drugstore, the produce at a very small market? I sympathize, I'd have a tough time not snapping up deals too.

And thank you for the Easter basket suggestions!

Hi! Thank you so much for your kind comment! It was such a blessing to wake up to this morning.

That is so awesome about being debt free! Yay! And I am most definately the same way when it comes to Kroger! I look at the ad and I can see all the deals and the coupons working in my mind and it's so hard to pass up for stockpiling! LOL. Hope you can make it through!! :-)
