Today, I got a copy of Aldi's new ad. Now I can price match some items at Wal-mart. Most exciting for me - the $1.99 Pumpkin. We can use it for decorations - and then roast the seeds and make pumpkin puree to freeze for pies later. I am "off" tomorrow - but will go into work for a few hours to finish up a project. I think I will stop at the Dollar Tree to buy 2 pie crusts for $1. I am overloaded with apples. There's a recipe in my free Woman's Day for apple pie with an oatmeal/crumble topping. Seems frugal, healthy and delicious. We can eat one now and freeze the other for later. The neighbor lady said the house that sold in 1 week had several people interested in it. One couple really loves this neighborhood. So, since the realtor knew my neighbor was planning to sell their house eventually, he asked them - and they sold it. So, technically, the house was never listed. The neighbor is retiring next summer - so they are downsizing to a townhouse somewhere else. Hope interest in our neighbor picks up. I may still list this summer . . . or then again, wait for a few more years. Today, I deposited $20.50 in rolled change and a few checks. My husband needs to chase down the closing costs on our foreclosure - they keep asking for additional information :( It has been 3 months. The next couple of months are going to be expensive for us. Replace kitchen/laundry flooring and water heater. Townhouse will be re-roofed. All property - except for the foreclosure house is later on 1 Jan of next year. I want to increase savings for my daughters college education.
