Home Depot Trip


You've seen THOSE people before. They are in the parking lot with an item too big for their car and they are trying desperately to squeeze it in. "Maybe in the trunk?" "How about across the backseat?" "I Think I could probably tie it on top!" We go by and laugh, "What were they THINKING??" Today, we WERE those people!

We made the trip to Home Depot with our bathroom list and wanted to get it all over with. Wes took care of the sink, cabinet, hanging cabinet, mirror and plumbing and I went and picked up a couple of lights. It took two carts; a shopping basket and one of those big flat bed carriers. I looked at the load and wondered how in the WORLD it was going to fit but Wes said that if it didn't fit, we could come pick up the rest tomorrow. They called an employee to help us "load" the items. He did one of those looks at the cart, then the car, then the cart... you know one of those "What were you thinking??" looks. But he tries. He gets out his tape measure and measures the boxes, then the car then the loading began. I don't know if you can tell or not, but it ALL FIT!! I'm serious!! It took up the entire back of the car from the back of the seats to the back door and from the right side door to the left door and all the way to the ceiling, but it fit. I just had to take a picture (or 7) just so you would believe me. Check it out! We'll have to go back with a truck for the tub/shower enclosure. That's right.... we KNOW that won't fit! 

Saturday is the big day of the tear down and fix up. Wes did take some before pictures and oh, I can't wait to share the afters!

Hey Retirement! Don't take OUR Date Night Away!!

"Wait! Did we budget for Date Night??"

Wednesday night is Date Night at our house. It's been that way for a LONG time! And we didn't want retirement to do away with our weekly fun. So today, I'm going to cover some good ways to keep that fun coming and be able to pay for it with slightly reduced funds.
Put some money in the budget. Analyze what you can afford and how many times you will be going out during the month. If you get paid twice a month, budget for two date nights. If you get paid weekly, you only need to budget it in for the week. For us, we are getting paid once a month so we will budget for 4 to 5 nights out. We set aside about $20 to $25 per week for date nightRemember, it's about spending time together not how fancy the dining is. You can make a picnic one week and then spend double the following week at a nice place. You can make dinner at home and go to see a play or movie. In our case we could go to the beach with some hot dogs, potato chips a…

Living on Less.....WEIGHT, Part 1

It's not just about the money. Living on Less can also mean having less "stuff" cluttering up our homes, less stress and drama, and dragging around a whole lot less weight. 
The topic of the day... What are YOU "Weighting" for?
I think I've always had a weight problem. I was active enough as a teen and young adult to keep the pounds in range. But when I started having kids, I put on weight with each one. In 2001, and 230 lbs., I'd finally had enough and opted for Gastric Bypass Surgery so I would never have to think about being fat ever again and yes, I'm using the word FAT. I like to eat though, and only ended up losing a total of 35 lbs. with gastric bypass. Don't get me wrong, if you do it right, you MIGHT not have the same results I had, but a little dixie cup size meal was just not enough food for me. I would cry and be angry at every gathering of people and food. Let's just say eating was a big part of my life, so much so that it had int…

Oui Yogurt by Yoplait. Simply DELICIOUS!

Have you guys tried OUI yogurt yet?

OH MY GOSH YOU HAVE TO!! It is DELICIOUS!
This isn't the first jar I've had. Last month we discovered this yogurt at our .99 Store in San Luis Obispo and they were selling it 2 for $1. Yes, you read that right and I'm almost scared to state that on here for fear it will cause a run on the store! I know you guys think that if it's in a .99 Store, something must be wrong with it, but that isn't so. These are in date, sealed properly and absolutely perfect.

Oui yogurt, made by General Mills and Yoplait, currently comes in comes in eight flavors: strawberry, blueberry, black cherry, vanilla, coconut, lemon, peach, and plain.The yogurt is also non-gmo, gluten free and lightly sweetened with cane sugar in the fruited varieties.It is made using whole milk rather than reduced or no fat, a long culturing time and two kinds of fermenting cultures; L. Bulgaricus and S. Thermophilus. I've tried all of the flavors over the last couple of mon…
