HAVE I EVER TOLD YOU HOW CHEAP I AM? WELL, I AM. IT’S THE MAIN REASON I USE CLOTH DIAPERS/PULL-UPS. IT’S THE MAIN REASON I USUALLY EAT BEANS AND VEGETABLES. I THINK I EAT OFF OF ABOUT 7 OR 8 DOLLARS A WEEK. I’M NOT KIDDING. AND I EAT EXACTLY WHAT I WANT-BEANS AND VEGGIES!! WOW, I NEVER REALIZED HOW CHEAP IT WAS.
I ALSO NEVER OWNED A CAR CHARGER FOR MY PHONE UNTIL A FEW WEEKS AGO. WHAT WAS THE REASON? CHEAPNESS. AND MY HUSBAND FINALLY BOUGHT ME ONE-IT WAS A WHOLE TEN DOLLARS. BUT HEY, THAT’S A WHOLE WEEK OF FOOD FOR ME!!!
ANYWAY, WE DON’T HAVE CABLE OR SATELLITE, EITHER. THIS IS ONLY PARTLY DUE TO THE MONEY THING, THOUGH. I DON’T THINK WE’D WATCH IT ENOUGH FOR IT TO BE WORTH IT. THOUGH, I WOULD SOOOO GIVE ANYTHING FOR A GOOD, EDUCATIONAL STATION FOR DYLAN, AND FOOD NETWORK AND TLC. IF ONLY I COULD PAY FOR ONLY THOSE CHANNELS!! BEING FRUGAL IS ALSO HOW I MANAGED TO PUT TOGETHER MY SON’S SCHOOL CURRICULUM FOR PRESCHOOL, KINDERGARTEN, AND 1ST GRADE FOR….DRUM ROLL PLEASE…….AROUND $150. NOT KIDDING. IT MIGHT EVEN BE A LITTLE LESS THAN THAT. AND I HAVE STUFF WE MAY NOT EVEN USE…WE’LL HAVE TO SEE. I’M SO PROUD OF THAT. I KNOW HOMESCHOOLING ALWAYS COMES WITH THE TEMPTATION OF BUYING AND BUYING NEW THINGS…AND IT’S EASY TO GET CAUGHT UP IN THAT.

ON ANOTHER NOTE, I’M READY FOR SPRING. THE FIRST DAY THAT’S PRETTY, WE’RE HITTING THE ZOO…IF IT’S OPEN. I’M SO EXCITED. I DO NEED A FEW IDEAS. I’M PLANNING DYLAN’S SCHOOL YEAR, AND I AM LOOKING FOR SUPER CHEAP OR FREE FIELD TRIPS. ALL YOU HOMESCHOOLING MOMMAS WHO HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE, THROW ME SOME IDEAS!!! WE ARE NEAR “BASS PRO SHOPS”, SO THAT’S ALWAYS ONE WE HIT, THEN THE ZOO, AND AFTER THAT I KEEP DRAWING A BLANK. KEEP IN MIND I HAVE A THREE YEAR OLD BOY. AND I’M CHEAP. DID I MENTION THAT? ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED SO MUCH!!!

P.S. I'M THINKING ABOUT HAVING A "BLOG GIVEAWAY". BUT HONESTLY, I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD BE INTERESTED. IF YOU ARE, LEAVE A COMMENT. AND PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS, AS I'M NOT ABLE TO SURF AROUND A LOT ON THE INTERNET. THE NEXT POST WILL HAVE TO DO WITH THE GIVEAWAY. EITHER WAY, I'LL DO IT IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS. I JUST NEED TO KNOW IF MORE THAN ONE PERSON WOULD TAKE PART!! IT'S GOING TO BE A GOOD PRIZE. AND IF IT GOES WELL, I'M PLANNING ON DOING THEM EVERY COUPLE OF WEEKS. :)

Don't lie. You eat beans because you're Mexican. Not because you're cheap. :)

I love you and am glad I got to talk to you! So excited to use cloth diapers!!
