  1. We got rid of credit cards quite a while back too - you do pay more in the long run. Plus, not having credit card debt helps you sleep better too! Both DH and I noticed that change right away. We use only cash and thankfully DH got a great bonus this year, not a ton but more than we expected for a little company. Plus, we bought useful things for the boys (clothing and boots) and Legos and stuff like that for toys last - no battery operated stuff here either. New Year!
  2. I've been thinking about this some more and I'll add that we are starting to plan our garden for this spring - it's not easy keeping a garden watered when you have to haul your water but we're working on ways around that issue. We're going to be (finally) getting chickens and a milk goat. I'm learning about making cheeses and kefir and am planning a herb garden as well. I'll continue cooking from scratch and also, like has been said in other's posts, trying to find more ways to cut back on any frivolous spending. We have no credit cards so that helps a lot to deter that too.
  3. Just found this thread - so thankful you aren't broken and that your grson was there to help! Praying for a speedy recovery!
  4. I got DH a brass tumbler/case cleaner - whatever you want to call it. He is going to use the $$$ my mom sent him to get some media and a few parts for his reloading equipment. The only thing prep minded I got was a book on food storage/survival - posted about it in another thread. I have no idea on what I might spend the $$ I got but I'm browsing different sites for prep stuff. Glad you folks had a nice Christmas!
  5. Great idea for a thread Stephanie! My plan is to be healthier and in better physical condition - I believe that is the one of the top things I can do in order to be bigger help to my dh and for our little family team. As for prepping - I'm going to spend this weekend organizing, taking inventory and planning and then I'll be doing some more shopping. I got a copy of Peggy Layton's book - Emergency Food Storage and Survival Handbook for Christmas and I'm getting some good ideas from the book (plus I'm going to buy some copies for some family members). Thanks for starting this thr
  6. We keep fire extinguishers in the kitchen, barn, garage, near the fireplace/pellet stove and in our vehicles. Glad you weren't hurt and no major damage happened!
  7. http://www.canracks.com/ Don't know that this has been posted anywhere else here, except for where I'm posting it, so please excuse me if it is a duplicate.
  8. http://www.canracks.com/ I'm going to paste this link in a couple of places so everyone can see it. Hope it's helpful,
  9. Will certainly be praying for her!
  10. Here's what is predicted for our area today.... Today: Bitterly cold. Snow showers. Dangerous wind chills may approach -30F. High -2F. Winds NNW at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of snow 60%. 1 to 2 inches of snow expected. We didn't get much snow last night but it is cold and the wind is howling - thankfully though the power is on and we have heat so no complaining just sharing. I sure hope the folks in the New England states get their power back on quickly - I hope that someone is watching out for the elderly, the ill and the little ones! Have a beautiful Sunday!
  11. I had just sent you a PM about what I thought was a mix-up! LOL! Thanks a bunch!!! I'll listen to it today while I'm baking! Merry Christmas!!
  12. Rita - will be praying for you and your family! I'm sorry you're having to deal with this. Darlene - that's a wonderful offer - I'll be praying that the ex will be able to help out with a Christmas miracle! to all!
