  1. K-Mart And Sears Closing

    When the Sears near us was closing, they raised all their prices, so even with the going out of business (whatever) the percentage off was, some of it wasn't great deals. Gotta know your prices. I think alot of people weren't looking at the prices and just loading their carts up in areas like the tool department. Other sections, like clothes, had stuff for a very long time because it was overly pricey. I didn't see it posted here, but did anyone else see about a bunch of Sam's Clubs closing? Apparently they didn't tell anyone ahead of time, just closed them. Even Sam's employees showing up for work were shocked. There's fewer and fewer places to shop.
  2. It's been a LONG time!

    Welcome back!
  3. Happy New Year, my friends!


    -3 here this morning. That's without the windchill. I'm glad we've not been hit with the snow Erie has! Trying to keep the house warm while not so dry has been a challenge. It's the pellet stove and furnace and sometimes a space heater vs. a humidifer and vaporizer (with Vicks; we're all stuffed up). Usually I have a big pot of bone broth simmering on the stove for DD, but with the Christmas leftovers, there's been no room in the fridge for it at night. Hopefully I can get something going on the stove tomorrow. There's the flu going around. An article in our newspaper says people are going to bed fine, and then waking up in the morning feeling like they've been hit with a truck. One of DH's (sick) co-workers came in to work to "get away from his wife and (sick with the flu) kids". I've been upping our Vitamins C and D and garlic. So far, we're healthy. We've been looking more for a new (to us) home. We're praying we can move in 2018 to a home that is right for our family.

    Kappy, that you all are in your home soon!
  6. Hi!

  7. Trying to get this section rocking again!

    We're also homeschooling. DD is almost 4, so we'll call it preschool. Most people around here have their kids in "preschool" by the time they are 2. My DD is also a lefty, so any advice is appreciated. She can print the alphabet, her full name and a few other words from memory (including "I love Mama" ) . She likes for me to write things for her to copy them. I'm not sure if we shoud continue like that or if I should buy something so she learns to make her letters properly now or if we should wait. Jeepers, DD learned her colors by using those jumbo lacing beads (Lehman's sells them; they're made by Holgate Toys in PA). As she'd put them on the string, I'd say the color. So we worked on coordination and colors at the same time. She got the beads a couple years ago and still plays with them. Today she is stirring the beads in a plastic bucket because she's making soup.

    If you have an Ollie's Bargain Outlet store near you, check there. I picked it up for $2.99. It was in the aisle with cookbooks.
