So much going on

Hey everyone. So I've had so much going on the past couple of weeks. We had VBS at church all week and Super Doubles at Harris Teeter. Still trying to find our house the one we wanted the seller lied about some stuff so I can't get it with the loan we are getting. Oh and did I say DH is on his way home? Also getting family pics taken next Sat.. While DH is home I hope to do some crafts and get the yard cleaned up maybe some DIY stuff done. We have some tables that need to be painted among other things. Oh and I have a garden this year so I've been working  a lot on it. I'll do a garden post maybe today or tomorrow. The flower garden out front is really blooming so I'll also do a post on it.. We've been doing a lot of work with the boys mom bought a account on ABC Mouse and both boys love it.

I have to go get some stuff now but hopefully I'll be able to post some this week before we go out of town.

Forever N Always

So I just want to start off by saying where has the time gone? I can't believe it's been weeks since I last posted. I've been so busy dealing with getting our house and deployment. I've also been trying to find new way to earn and save money.. I've been selling this on my facebook yardsaling sites and that's going pretty good. The stuff we're selling ( My mom and I) it's stock pile stuff we've gotten for free or cheap and have tried but didn't like.. We do coupons which is how we've gotten alot of this. My mom also got 10 different fruit trees a couple of weeks ago while they were on sale for 50% off at Lowes.

 We got our gardens planted and hopefully we will start to get things form them soon. The wild blackberry are crazy this year and I can't wait to pick those.

I'm going to make a list of things I hope to get done this summer to either earn money or save it.

1. Get a lot of wild black berries pick and frozen
2. Get a lot of fresh stuff either caned or frozen or dehydrated.
3. Get Eli 100% potty trained.
4. Get our own place

I'll keep adding to the list as I think of them.

I found this awesome  blog about this lady who gardens and coupons. She only spends about $100 a month at the store. Don't we all wish we could do that?

I'm going to post a link to here blog Here

She had a great idea to go to a local store and ask them to save the product for her. Now this is stuff that they would normally just throw out into the trash. She is getting not only food for her chicken but also for herself. Would you ever do this? Even if you don't have chicken it would still be worth a shot if you have compost.  I have to say I love the idea.

What ways do y'all save money?

Forever N Always
