More Free Stuff

Penny Pinching Diva has some great deals on her site.

My favorite being the deal for free Victoria Sectets Body Wash.

Free Lunch

Who says there is no such thing as a free lunch? Well, make that free dinner. Kashi is giving away one free dinner if you sign upat there site here.

Debt Diet Loser

Well, I swayed a little from the debt Diet, but I am still trying. I made a Menu plan last week and stuck to it mostly on the shopping. We did go as a family to eat Indian for Valentine's Day. I loaded up on deals and staples so I started stockpiling but was way off budget. i hope to change this from now on out. I will really start using this blog, and change my lifestyle. I have seen the light.

Debt Diet

My Rules

  1. No conveniance shopping..(drinks in the check out), drive thru snacks, vending machine snacks etc..
  2. Grocery Shopping must be from my List and must be from a Menu Plan.
  3. No eating out, and food for playgroups and Bunco must be made.
  4. No Happy Hour or drinking at a Bar, no movies, etc.
  5. Valentines has to be home made. For both the kids and hubby.

My Excpetions

  1. Haircut- I haven't had one since November and I can't make it until March.
  2. Soccer- I signed the boys up for Soccer so anything they might need for this, I will have to buy.
  3. Bunco- I am committed to this- so that 10$ is allotted for. I will hopefully find another creative way for other Mom's Night Outs. I will make my dish from scratch, however.
  4. Shower- I am cohosting a shower and as great as these girls are they don't want me to make a cake. They want a pretty one with blue booties.
  5. Goody Bags for kids class. I am assigned Goody Bags for the kids Valentines Party so I will have to make an exception for that. I will see how well I can do.
