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: More auction finds. Pictured above is the picture we got for $20. It is a nice sized one and we think the scale, color, and theme will go better with the new furniture we added at the end of last year. Other than that, I took a walk to the lake this afternoon for exercise, and am still trying to motivate myself to do some cooking/salad making to prepare for the coming week. I can believe how time is flying. My husband is coming home for an extended stay this week. Hee, hee - I asked him to bring home 3 quarters and 3 pennies so I can finish those rolls out. I really need to get outside - it is gorgeous - and plant a few more seeds. But I think I will wait until my husband can drill a few holes in the planters so I don't end up with root rot.
