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 :)

More 10/15 Expressions
My daughter consigned some clothes - but only had $14 in sales - the new rule is you have to wait until you $20 or more to take cash or a check. At Best Buy, she got $18.75 - and half of her games they would not take because they don't sell the system. So, she will have to try another alternative. Pictured are the flowers I got for $2.50 at Kroger. Originally $12.99 with Kroger cards. I had to stop and get pie crusts because the Dollar Store was out of them. May be I should not tell people. I told some co-workers and they were excited that the Dollar Tree had pie crusts/tins and Nature's Own bread. I just bought 1 pack - which was $2.65 for the Kroger brand. I also found a rebate form for spend $14 and get $7 back on a number of items to include deli items - so, my daughter and I picked out some items in the deli section. First time I tried Baba Ganoush - it is wonderful. We also got stuffed grape leaves, rotisserie chicken, etc. Now, I just need to mail in the form. Added: Freebies received in the mail the last couple of days: Lotion sample from Dial, 3 Chai Latte tea bags from Twinning, 2 samples of body wipes from Playtex Sport, coupon for a free pair of underwear from Victoria's Secret, and a free Martha Stewart Living magazine.
