Great Job Kathy and Pamela!The second one from Kathy is real funny. The picture gives you the impression that there are lot of burgers. Would somebody recognize that there is one missing :oops: or two :oops: :oops: or even three :oops: :oops: :oops: Mmmmh! You both better watch out :D
I think I do a good job at it even with prices still going up. I do about 200 every two weeks. Our biggest cost is Meat. I do not buy any cleaning supplies at all.This does not include all the animal feed that we have to get every two weeks, or so.

We eat most of those :D Then I read the 10 worst list. We eat ALL of those!! :shock: :roll:[/quote:7ede707ef0]We do alright, too - although obviously I don't do the lean meat and steamed chicken. I could live on baked sweet potatoes.But - - they can just leave me and my fries and cheesecakes alone! I'll fight over those! :lol:
[quote:71d24b3811="Pot Scrubber"]Thank you everyone for your out pouring of support! I'm sorry I have not been able to keep up with zaar today. I think this is the first time in years I have not logged on daily... um twice daily... err- ok seven times daily...to check all the threads. (yeah right- like you don't do it, too! :twisted: ) Been busy at my mom's.Thank you everyone for your well wishes. But really I started this thread not to call attention to myself but to Kooka and MK . They are the angels here. After you have had as many birthdays as I have... it is just another day. Unless you are victimized be a random act of kindness. Then it is a special day indeed, dears. :D But I DID enjoy sharing a little piece of myself with you nice people through a few pics of my personal life. Thank you. :wave:[/quote:71d24b3811] [b:71d24b3811] [color=darkred:71d24b3811]Every day you wake up is special but on your birthday you should celebrate a lot no matter how old you are - what better reason to party - you are not so old I am older & I always celebrate because it is fun...

[quote:a12f2cd87d="Kat's Mom"][color=olive:a12f2cd87d][i:a12f2cd87d]The thread on lemon juice is helpful and rather than hijack it, I thought it would be nice to have a single thread for everyone's tips.[/i:a12f2cd87d][/color:a12f2cd87d]Jewelry cleaner solutions can be pricey and sometimes leave a dull film. This is cheap and works better: a soft bristle toothbush and toothpaste. Just brush it up and rinse with warm water to leave a wonderful sparkle.Speaking of toothpaste, this is a tip that Kat used successfully during her teens for acne. This was in an interview with one of the super-models - can't remember which one. Pepsodent toothpaste dabbed on a pimple and left overnight helps remove redness and they seem to go away quickly.[/quote:a12f2cd87d]Kat, toothpaste is an abrasive and while it leaves a nice sparkle on your jewelry it will, eventually, scratch it and wear down the gold.
We have one of those stores here and I love it! You kinda have to go once or twice a week just to see what they have. They always get different stuff in. Some days they will have really good stuff where you are like.....umm whats wrong with this it really cant be 99 cents. But it is just stuff the wearhouses get rid of before it does go bad. But they always do have veggies, bags of potatoes and all the other stuff you mentioned. The one where I live gets really good bread! :) Me and hubby both work in grocery stores but i get the majority of our stuff at the 99 cent store(especially lately) because otherwise I wouldnt be able to buy most of the stuff I do.
Gee Everyone Thank You so Much!Even if they are boy games, I also have a 5 year old Grandson living here too as well as my 3 year old grand daughter and both of their parents.I know they should be able to find something to do on here!Thank You again!
