I am a bargain hunter, so my first stop for anything we need is to check out the clearance sections at stores. I rarely buy anything if it isn't on sale unless we really need it like a food item. Our home is decorated economically too. Our coffee table came from someone that had put out a sign saying FREE STUFF. I sign up for free samples, get coupons online, and search for coupon codes before I buy anything online. I stock up when there is a buy one get one deal too. We turn off unnessary lights durning the day. We have had to turn the heat on already this year, but are keeping it set lower than we would usually want it. Every night I place a glass of water by my bed. If I haven't finished it by the morning, I water the plants with it.Carrie has just started blogging so check her out and leave a comment at http://carriesminnesota-nice.blogspot.com/
Pat, tell her what she has won. Well, honestly, I still am not completely sure, but I am working on things Ü. Here is one little thing you will be receiving--a Give Thanks plate. I have a few other little Thanksgiving decorative things I am working on. Congratulations! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your information and I will get it in the mail this week.
Even though I didn't get a picture of our snowman, my 72 year old mom made a snow friend on her back deck and sent a picture. Isn't he cute? The snow is gone and it is up to 40 degrees. I have to go sit at son's football game soon (not that I don't love watching him play, I would just love it more in 60 degree weather!).
