Dr. Appointment

October 23rd, 2006 at 03:39 am

Today I have a chiropractor appointment. We live in the boonies so the drive to the doctor's office is 1 hour each way. So normally I would stop at Hardee's after I got to town and get me a platter of pancakes, milk and hashrounds for around $4.00 and then after I got done I would usually stop at Wendys for a value meal.
Sooooo this morning I ate breakfast at home so that is a savings of $4.00 added to my challenge account.

previous total $22.00
so far today $4.00
accum total $26.00

Homemade chewy brownies

October 21st, 2006 at 02:02 pm

My family loves these brownies. They are easy to make since you usually have the ingredients in the pantry, and they are cheaper to make than the store bought mixes.

Homemade chewy brownies

2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cup self rising flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa

1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 Tablespoons light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

combine dry and wet ingredients. Stir well. Pour into greased 9X 13 pan and bake at 350 for 25-27 minutes or until done in center

hanging laundry and mending clothes

October 21st, 2006 at 11:04 am

It is a beautiful day here today so 2 loads of laundry is hanging on the clothesline. I figure I save at least $1.00 per load by not using the energy hog, I mean clothes dryer!

I also patched 2 pair of my sons bluejeans the knees were wore out of them, but other than that there was nothing wrong with them. Their cousin gave them some old bluejeans that were too small to fit any of our boys so I cut 2 patches out of them and used that to patch up my sons jeans. They look pretty darn good too! So -- 2 pair of jeans for him cost around $10.00 each at walmart so I saved $20.00 by patching his old jeans.

previous total $0.00
today $22.00
new total $22.00
