    I don't think of us are ready to admit it as we are all in the September thread, but it's October. Welcome.

    Yes, it is hard to believe it is October already. I purchased my kids' Halloween costumes for a grand total of $10. I'll need to buy some candy and we will be set for Halloween.

    Twin baby girl hasn't been very happy since yesterday. We think it might be her teeth, poor little girl.

    it ( Autumn ) arrived just in time for me ( the cooler temps I mean ) . Not putting much hope in staying very frugal from now till the New yr. All the b'days here are in that time frame, and then there is Xmas. I'll be staying the course with PM-ing at least and using a few precious coupons , that should help.

    Dh and I cleaned out the front closet after the kids went to bed last night, it's almost done. I think I need some type of clear drawer thing to keep all of our mitts, toques, scarves, etc. in. This morning I dug bins out of the shed, took out what I needed and updated the labels. I also dropped off the next size of clothes and footwear to my neighbour. I was very happy when I realized that I have two pairs of those leather winter baby boots. I also have a few other pairs of baby winter boots for the twins. I took the small clothes out of our son's room and put it in the appropriate bin. Dh will stick the bins back out in the shed for me after lunch. I folded and put away a load of laundry. Second load of laundry is in the wash. I still need to finish going through the grocery flyers. Still getting stuff done.

    Was glad to put my recent $10 Air Miles redemption for a couple of items at Sobeys-the items went into a raffle gift bag that Mom donated to a fundraiser.
    Will put almost all of my HST credit along with some grocery funds I still have on Wed. towards casual winter boots at my favourite shoe store (clearance location)-I've not had boots in over 10 years and these ones are actually larger than my size. Since I cannot find cross-trainers, the boots are the next best thing (rugged soles-hope I don't wear them down during winter).

    Made a double batch of banana chocolate chip cookies on Friday and let's say that breakfast has been an easy decision these past two days along with some reduced price hot cross buns and a few spoons of hemp seeds.

    Saw the bright white new location of Fabricland (South Hamilton Square) after I finished with the Comic Con (Catherine Bach & Denise Crosby were gems of panellists!). Sewsociety members had 50% off store items yesterday only.

    Had seen a pair of navy pants at Talize that is a size I don't usually wear. Will wait to see if women's pants go on sale again soon to try them on (if they are still there).

    I spent part of this afternoon checking out Uniqlo Canada's Facebook page plus watching Cityline's Fashion Friday segment (the start of the show began with some Uniqlo looks for women & men). The people waiting for the store's opening got treated well-music, water, treats, tote bags with $75 purchase promotions.

    Happy October all,

    I made a batch of blueberry and a batch blueberry/raspberry muffins for this weeks lunches, 1 dozen for the guys to take hunting next week and 1 dozen for the freezer.

    I've been price matching, using coupons like crazy and wowzers I had $500 left a the end of the month, what a difference all these changes make. I've only been buying things on sale and if not doing without. Using up what we have on hand, etc.

    Wishing everyone a great afternoon & month.

    Frugal and not frugal day. I used100.00 in PC points and was able to use up my buy 2 get 1.00 off for catelli smart source so I paid. 47 cents a box for pasta. I bought 12 boxes. I had 200 points on beef so took advantage of the prime rib sale at Fortinos then the not frugal. Came home to discover the door to the freezer was left opened. So the menu plan changed, I lost a pack of turkey burgers and a box of sausage. But dinner is now meat loaf not prime rib and a package of chicken and one of sausage is getting cooked now for the dinners this week. It could have been worse as the freezer is presently full.

    I weeded out front lawn this afternoon while Dh took care of our napping kids. Most of the weeds are on the West side of our house. It doesn't get a lot of sun because of our neighbour's large house. I pulled four 5 gallon buckets of weeds and I can feel it some now. Dh should be done mowing the lawn soon.

    I will be roasting a picnic ham on Tuesday, I'm waiting for it to thaw. It's my last ham, so I'll buy more with the next good sale.

    They are forecasting -1 to -3 from Wednesday to Saturday this week. So I'll need to harvest my vulnerable vegetables. I'll sell or trade most of my green tomatoes again this year. I'll be grating zucchini by hand. I'll freeze a bunch in labeled lunch baggies and then put them in gallon buckets into the freezer for later use. I think the carrots and potatoes can handle this frost before I need to dig them up too.

    edit: They are now warning possible 10-15cm of of rain/snow this week. I might be better off digging my carrots and potatoes too.
