I recently figured out a couple of things about myself. I love to figure out ways to save money, become more frugal, start a business, and simplify my life. (In the near future, I hope to add other blogs and web sites that I have found in order for me to do this.) I hope that what I pass on to you will help you in discovering yourself.

Thought of the day

One of my favorite prayers is the Serenity prayer.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and knowledge to know the difference.

We cannot change others, just ourselves. It's harder to look at ourselves than others. It takes courage to change ourselves. We need to ask God for help everyday in figuring out what's ours and what's someone else's.

Easy Recipe

Crock Pot "Cheap" Roast

1 can of mushroom soup
1 pkg of onion soup mix
3 lb round steak - cut in portion sizes.

Cook in crockpot on low for 8-10 hours. Gravy is delicious on mashed potatoes.

Money Saving Tip

At the end of each day, empty change from your pockets, purse, car, or whatever into a jar. Do not use! Put into savings account at the end of each month. You will be surprised at how much you accumulated during that month.

  1. Hi Aunt Janet!
    I found you blog by hitting the next blog thingy at the top of each blog.
    I've also done the "change saving" and managed in a few years to save a whole Sparklett's water bottle of change. It amounted to about $1000
    Pretty cool!
    Anyway just thought I'd say hi...
    so HI!
