    Another show I can't stand is the Storage Wars show. Same thing- Trash talk.

    Gonna try and do some more dirt digging tonight... The more I can dig out before the frost, the easier gardening will be next year! (Gotta get rid of that garbage clay soil junk!)

    Hubby and I picked up apples off the ground and also from the tree. So far we have half a trailer full and we`re nowhere near done with the first tree. Saw one of our neighbours while we were out and told her she can pick as many as she wants. Most people are happy to get apples as long as we do all the work. I see a lot of applesauce in our future this winter. I`m just thankful they aren`t wormy like they were last year.

    I watched Extreme Couponing a couple times. That was more than enough for me. I don`t find many coupons for things I use anymore.

    Here I thought it was to London Ontario! I really should have paid more attention to the ad

    Sucessfully sold one bag of clothing for $20. Scored 2 weeks of free classifieds to sell my sebring.

    I shipped my tablet back to Samsung a second time (the first was in july) for the same issue. The screen flickers and it randomly restarts or won't turn on at all.

    Last night we scored 2 really nice ikea dressers for Free!

    The 6 foot One will go in the craft room. The taller narrower one is going to replace my 6 foot one in my bedroom which is being sold but held until to 30th.

    And finally some really good news... the job I tested for in july then interviewed for in august is mine. I sign paperwork Monday and go from there with a couple more steps. Like start date...security clearance...notice at my current place of work. it made my day.

    Sweet sparrow: I know we are not in the same city and I also have a long wait for the book. There is 130 people ahead of me, but buying it defeats the frugal lifestyle and the whole point is to get rid of stuff.
    TG: hope everything works out well and good job keeping the humor.
    Lizzie: what a wicked price. If we did not already have a busy summer I would have jumped on that as I love love love England. So much so I married a Brit.
    Friends don't let real friends pay full price.

    Hello folks! Just checking in. Haven't read up to date. We are just treading water here - DH had a couple of tests done on Monday and has a CT scan set for Monday, so back to London on Monday again.

    I got my CPAP - breathing machine today but I think I will wait til tomorrow to set it up - it has to be checked and washed and I'm too pooped to do that tonight.

    I will be ushering at a play tomorrow night. My frugal way of getting a little culture into my life.

    I had a meeting for the "Selection Committee" at our church last night - we're looking for a new minister. It's a big responsibility, but I'm looking forward to the process. I've been out of the hiring role a long time, so I'm a little rusty, but they've got good guidelines. So I have some homework to do.

    I am going to say, "Goodnight, folks!" Have a great Friday!
    Here's to all you great SC'ers

    Good morning, everyone.

    Can't seem to get going these days. I've been tossing and turning all night, then sleepy during the day, but I force myself to stay awake so I'll be good and tired by bedtime...but it doesn't work. In the last 3 days, I've had about an hour's sleep in total. Sigh. I know it's because I'm leery of the next few weeks (I have to spend time with an individual I loathe - can't get out of it). Oh well, by Halloween it will all be behind me & I can have fun with my 4 legged trick & treaters.

    Better get going. Think I'll go get some fresh air to wake me up (spying on the neighbours with Lily dog only did so much) and head to the grocery store to pick up a few things (we always seem to run out of liver for some reason ).

    Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

    @lovelikewinter3 : What kind of soil are you replacing your clay with? And how deep are you going?

    We have the exact same soil and we were infected with a noxious weed a few years ago. I spent many hours digging out the roots which sent runners everywhere! I could spend three hours in one spot, just tearing up the heavy soil. Thank goodness we have a postage stamp yard, but it's still big enough to be quite a task!

    @saundyl : Congratulations on the dressers and the new job!!

    @lilo0003 : The complete audiobook is on YouTube. I'd recommend picking the one that's less than 5 hours. Anything longer than that has the audio partially looped so you hear the beginning again.

    Last night, I started clearing out my old records. I pulled out all my bank statements, contracts when I first opened my bank account, old GIC records and put out almost everything for shredding. I kept only one document for each account so I would have a record of the account number and amount. I do one envelope a week, or more if I feel up to it (when I'm not doing laundry, or meal plannning for the week.)

    I am SO going to fill our compost bin with shredded paper!

    So you've probably received a very partial congratulations rep from me, I hate this keyboard: when I lose my place for a second or two, it doesn't have those little bumps on the G and H keys so I don't find my way back and oh, well, I don't know what I hit that time, but CONGRATULATIONS on your new job, Saundyl!!
    This keyboard is gonzo today! Hubby has one of those with huge yellow keys and it's going on today!

    Just checking in (as I do every so often, haha). It has been a while. I started couponing again recently. It is okay for some items - junk foods like pop, chips and some packaged items like frozen pizzas, eggos, noodles and rice. But mostly I am finding that we are purchasing items at Costco or just price matching - especially for produce and meats.

    How has couponing been for everyone else lately? What other ways are you saving money when it comes to produce, meats and eating healthy in general?
