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: Maybe not so appetizing - but that's my compost overflowing with coffee grounds. Next, leftover "apple turnovers" I made last night. The other 5 got eaten between snack and breakfast :) Other frugal deeds, I have started re-organizing the gift closet. After I collapsed all the gift bags and put them and the tissues and ribbons in a basket - I probably have 2 shelves left to work with. I also found some "stuff" I want to use now. I found 4 votives to use in the metal decoration in the bathroom. I found deoderant. I was going to make some facial scrub - I found small samples of some "good stuff" to use. So, I used the scrub, put on some sample spf moisturizer and took the dog for a walk just now. I also made my daughter a large bath of Thai red curry and brown rice. For the rest of the day, I'd like to finish organizing the closet, make some vegetarian egg rolls, make a large salad for lunches, and chop some of the onions and freeze for later use.
