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 refrigerator magnets I finished yesterday. My daughter and I made salt dough cut-outs and painted them several years ago. While cleaning out junk drawers, I found them. Sadly, 2 pieces were too heavy for the poor grade magnets I used (magnetic advertisements from realtors). The bottom piece was heart shaped with a cute flower and also, there was a cut pig. Being too heavy, then fell off the fridge and broke. I salvaged the bottom piece of the heart. Also, I worked a bit on my daughter's throw. I also found some beautiful teal lace, very nice quality - vintage perhaps, in my auction stash of linen. I am going to use it to embelish some towels. I now have found a bazillion projects to work on - just as a result of cleaning out junk drawers. I had a nice Mother's Day. Now I need to package my half.com sale and mail it out tomorrow at lunch time.
