Affording You Kids Halloween
Sunday, September 27, 2009

Avon Rep like me I go to my brochures to afford Halloween for my kids that are young enough to afford the $19.99 costumes like wizards, Snow White, princess and Pirates, because I get them at a discount being a rep for Avon. My older kids go to their friends for Halloween parties, and use make up to look scary, that is their costumes. I never have to worry about money now that my business is started. I hope to sell, so we can get off welfare and disability. Did you guys hear about what is going on in Social Security. That is scary in itself. Well my birthday is next month too. I will be 41 yrs. old. Cool! I think I will celebrate frugally, and financially sound too.

Gamy Hamburger
Sunday, September 27, 2009

For meat that is from Sam's Club that is sold the day it is sell by date. I freeze it right away, then when I need it. It is usually gamy, so I make hamburger out of it. I would not suggest using it in hotdishes tho. Buy hamburger in bulk at regular grocery stores, so the hamburgers don't taste gamy. These tend to be on sale during Superbowl time, and football season. The sell by date isn't on the same day you buy it like at Sam's Club. Well let's discuss what I put in Chili tomorrow for my family.
