Holidays

The turkey was barely cold before the shopping frenzy started this year.  Vicki actually talked me into going to an insane number of stores. The nice thing - we used coupons to save money.  We used our apps - Ibotta and Checkout 51 - to save money.  While we did some spending, we reduced the … Continue reading Holidays

Hot House Flowers…

The girls arrived safely finally.  Their plane was delayed an hour and being goofy I watched online while they traveled north.  I kept bugging my sister giving her status updates...
