My best friend, who happens to be my husband is resourceful and creative. He is frugal and hates to waste anything. He is wonderful and he can cook. he taught me that second time around food can be better than the original meal. For example, take a $5 chicken from Sam's. That equals chicken dinner. chicken fajitas, chicken salad, then finally chicken tortilla soup. Buy a ham. Have a ham dinner with trimmings, make ham salad, enjoy a cobb salad, make bean soup, have ham and eggs for four Saturdays in a row, and have a few ham sandwiches in between. Everything this man makes is yummy (except for his chicken pot pie, although he begs to differ with me) and practically never makes anything twice. He does not use a cook book, although he loves watching Saturday morning cooking shows on PBS. We only buy what is on sale and use coupons. We often come out of a grocery store with 60% in savings. Grocery shopping is like a game for us. We eat very well on very little. What do you do to make your bucks go further in a grocery store? Do you have a tale of your never ending Sam's $5 chicken?

no, Really, I am
I grew up in the suburbs of pittsburgh and now, again, this is where i am at now.
I have lived here and abroad and my dream location would be probably north caroline.
i need all seasons to feel right with the world.
My fav places the mountains and the ocean.
I love snow. I love sand. I love the sun warming my skin. I love my family the most and that includes furbabies.
I have a major obsession with vintage costume jewelry. I am now in the process of cataloging what I have by blogging about a piece a day. This obsession is beyond control actually.
I love to thrift shop. It is the thrill of the hunt. I do not like mainstream shopping at all. The only stores I frequent are Sams and Shop N Save (I do not purchase thrifted food, although I do look for reduced items there too)
