We are a family of three in transition. We spent years being frugal and are now at a crossroad. We'd like to retire from our day jobs in two years or less. Our retirement goals are to provide our daughter with the best education she desires; travel; and find new careers - perhaps part-time that we really enjoy. I hope to post both "frugal" and "personal finance" information. NOTE: I am not a professional on either subject. My posts are purely entertainment :)

Frugal deeds for the day: We got a bit side tracked today - so, we will be doing our dinner mystery shop tomorrow. We went to 3 thrift stores and the dog got her hair "done" at Petsmart with the discounted gift card. So, I have posted a picture of the dog with her "do" and some furniture I got at the newest thrift store - it supports the homeless. It is the nicest one I have ever been to - and I just couldn't resist. The Asian inspired chairs/side table is something I have had my eyes on for years - but just never purchased because I was too "frugal" to fork over the $. We also got a nice pair of shoes - new, w/o tags. A few scarves. 7 clothing items including a new Ann Taylor Dress for $1 each - so, $7, plus tax. Strange, but, no tax at two thrift store and the other one, charged us tax???.
