One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

First Day of the New Year
There's nothing better than sitting around in my pajamas, doing nothing but whatever I feel like, and enjoying leftovers from New Year's Eve.
We make our "chex mix" a bit different, and use Crispix cereal. I was so lucky to have coupons for the cereal this year. The cereal is not cheap. This is a tradition for our family that I carried over from childhood. We are fighting over the leftovers so I hid it earlier in the day. He he he! They are already asking where I put it. Ha ha ha! Around here you have to hide it if you want it later.
