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: I made cranberry/orange scones today from fresh cranberries and zest from one my oranges. Not all that pretty - but they were tasty - and the pieces missing were from three people trying them out - not just me. I sold 1 item on ebay. Have my half.com and listia.com sales ready to go. Just waiting for the buyer to pay. I have two crafts ready for lunch time this week. One will use 2 of my daughter's childhood t-shirts for an upcycled "scarf". The other, already crocheted rectangles that I will stitch together to make my daughter an interesting infinity-type scarf. I changed out the front door wreath. I now have our holiday wreath out - purchased 4 years ago - I think from Goodwill. Still looks as good as it did then.
