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: Pictured are the two end tables I won at auction - I think the pair cost me $27 - anyway, I believe they are from the 1960's. I purchased the teal spray paint today at Michael's with an internet 40% off coupon and my discounted gift card - the can of paint was $11 before discount. Next to the paint is box of teal fabric dye - I will be dying the white curtains a light teal color - hopefully to give the room an update. The dye was less than $3. Just completed my weeding for the week. The city pick-up will have a small pile of brush/weeds to pick-up tomorrow. My daughter treated me to a frappucino today - and it was a nice treat in the hot temps we seem to be experiencing today. After Micheals, we went next door to Target with a handfull of coupons and I signed up for the Target Visa - why - because now you get 5% everytime - I let my old card expire. I sold one item on Listia.
