I have nothing else to title my post, so I will keep it simple.
With my goal to avoid ALL unnecessary spending, so far so good. Yesterday Farren had to buy the van I new battery, but, considering it owuldn't start, I consider that I necessity! Today I took the little girls to preschool and then headed to Walmart with the 5 kids I had left. I did VERY well, only buying fruit, veggies, milk and bread.
A movie I wanted to see, The Secret life Of Bees, came out today, and I didn't buy it. Anyone who knows me knows that I buy movies left and right, we have hundreds, many unopened. So, I am doing well so far. We shall see what tomorrow brings.
I also wanted to take a moment to wish my dear friend Tiffani a VERY happy birthday!

Hey Em, On our money saving quest we have found the library a valuable resource in saving on buying movies. You have a great library system in Utah-take advantage of it. You can place movies on hold at the library welsite and just run in and pick them up. I have a running list of movies I want to see. Sometimes I have to wait a few months, but the libraries here are usually really good about buying new movies that come out.Anyway-just a tip that has saved us LOTS of money in the last 4 years.
