Finding LOTS of cheap hardback books - now some on sale at Big Lots for 50 cents each! We bought 16 & plan to recycle them at our favorite used bookstore later....Reading Best-selling authors, which I never do & it's interesting.

ALSO at Big Lots - found powder, eye cream, night cream, eye rollers - all very CHEAP.  I forget that they have cosmetics/skin care at Big Lots. $3.50 for Dead Sea Minerals eye cream and $1.95 for an eye roller (rollers usually run @ $15....) I got $100 worth of product for $20!! Still using the product I received from the infomercial - a month to go & that's GRATIS + an honorarium.

Getting some $ from sale of the house back E. & using it to buy back some of hubby's pension time so that we will have a secure retirement income & we get Soc. Sec. $, too! 

Had the flu, so I have had a lot of time to lie around reading into my pile of books!

Sears had a sale on glasses, 2 for $100 - & I was so satisfied with my first 2 pair, that I ordered a SECOND set. Beats the $69 price I get providing MY OWN FRAMES at another place. The frame selection is limited, of course - but I like plain frames, anyway.....Hubby had been told that the sale was until April, but when we got there, they said it had just expired, but Hubby talked them into the deal anyway! 

Yet for all the savings, we don't seem to live that high on the hog. What do other folks do? We only have one income + my Soc. Sec. - but still.  I don't know if I could raise a family on a teacher's salary - & I wonder how it will be adjusting to retirement income - at least I have lots of practice!
