CHRISTMAS ON A BUDGET

Well everyone I don't know about you but this is the time of year that as Halloween nears some people are starting to think about that Holiday just a few weeks away.( tick tock here for time left ). So are you one of those people that want to make everyone feel special but are living on a budget that is so tight it screams when you mention extra expenses.  That is where the wonderful store the dollar tree comes into play.  Now most budget conscious people know you can score some seriously great deals at the dollar tree.  But as I have found you can make some amazing crafty gifts that do not suck all from the dollar tree.  So here it goes I hope these ideas help you as much as they help me... Thank you to all the great Pinner's at Pinterest. I am putting direct links to these amazing Pinner's so you can see all their great pins and ideas.  Or you can follow me here and come see all the wacky stuff I find through Pinterest.

JOYS OF COOKING

There is one place that I can say that i am truly happy  and that is in my kitchen.  I love cooking, baking or to put it mildly creating. As soon as I get a chance I will be posting a link to all my favorite recipes because lets be honest who doesn't have that 1 recipe that everyone loves to death.  I know I have about four go to recipes that I can make blindfolded and hopping on one foot.  Some of these recipes I made up and some I found and changed it.  Why not right? My Grandma Rose taught me two great things which I cherish to this day...crafting and cooking.  My Grandma raised a large family and she taught me with a little ingenuity you can stretch those tiny amount of ingredients to a huge spread.  She literally cooked for a army sometimes (ring any bells Uncle Steve? Grams told me some amazing stories about you.)  Food is something that brings people together and holds in it memories that we might have forgotten. Till next time people remember try something new or go cook so

SLOW DOWN AND SMELL THE TURKEY!

This was the first weekend in a long while that I have had off.  I will be honest its nice to just sit down and smell the turkey cooking....literally.  With the start of the fall holiday season I decided that today I would cook the first turkey of the season.  Which works out well considering I am preparing the house for the fall.  I am thankful for this time of year not because its getting closer to Christmas, but because I am truly grateful for what I have and the fact we have a home to get ready for the fall and winter,  Things sure have changed in the last year and I am truly grateful.  My children are for the most part healthy and happy... Megan just has a bum knee I will take that for what I can get.  My husband and myself are continuously working on us and i won't lie he holds my heart he always will.  I wish that I could say that I absolutely love all aspects of my life but I will take what we can get, because to be honest as long as I have my kids and husband that'

RETAIL WORK AND FAKING THAT SMILE!!

Well I will be the first to say that working retail can be a huge adventure.  By huge I mean.... OK here is a good way to put it have you ever read a comic book where the characters thoughts are captured in the bubble cloud but only so you can see them.  Well if I ever get fired from my job I cam almost guarantee with 95% certainty that my bubble cloud got broke and those thoughts and words came right out of my mouth.  The other 5% was my numbers were not the best or some other corporate related reason.... So I hear the question now so Angie why a work post?  Well funny you might have mentioned that.  At work tonight while I was cleaning my department I had some lady destroy the department and then snap her fingers at me like I was a dog.  Snapping.....Well I was so busy cleaning up that I did not hear her snapping.  Then after a few minutes of snapping she came over to me and said, "can't you hear me?"  To which i replied with my biggest smile "Oh I am so sorry I

SELF ENTITLEMENT!

I have come to a conclusion people are very self entitled.  No, I am not being the pot calling the kettle black I know I am selfish sometimes. But as we go into a time of year where we are supposed to be thankful for the little things....OK HOLD UP.  We should be thankful for the little things year round. I mean seriously people....but back to the regularly schedule blog.  I work retail... I see people struggling looking for deals and bargains.  I see parents going without so their kids have what they need... that's a true parent.  I see Grandparents helping out their kids getting their kids but also the grand-kids what they need.  You see the gratitude in some but then you see the opposite side of the coin..... Some music please..... Mom I know little Johnny needs shoes and we can't afford them but he only wears the $150 Nikes.  Oh gee Grams I know I can't afford cloths but I want the $50 jeans instead of 3 pairs of $10 jeans when they are the same quality. Or mom
