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 a few things I accomplished today. I finished the guest towel with scraps of fabric from a thrifted dress - from days gone by and the lace from the linen box I got at the auction. Next to it - the strawberry cobbler for tomorrow. I also made 2 batches of cookies - white chocolate chips (manager's special from Krober) and peanut butter. The potato salad is done and I got some more of the throw completed. I listed 2 more items on Listia and my daughter took 11 items of clothing to the consignment store. Just watched "Joyful Noise". So nice to have a very long weekend. I have several painting projects I need to get done - maybe I will finally get to them.
