Living on a Dime

I love this site. I'd never been to Living on a Dime until a couple weeks ago. It's a great place for any of you that have noticed your monthly budget not doing as much as it used to. In this day of rising grocery prices, along with rising prices in everything else, I'm doing my best to find ways to make our limited finances s-t-r-e-t-c-h. I've been buying bread this summer instead of making it, and it has added so much to the grocery bill that I'm not sure I'm actually saving money. It might be cheaper to use the electricity! And it would certainly taste better.

Not much has been happening around here. The pups are growing, of course. They killed a chick yesterday. Poor chickie:(. They didn't mean to do it, just playing. Nevertheless, they were punished for bothering it. They really take to heart being locked in their little kennel for five to ten minutes!

Hope all of you are enjoying this last month of summer!!


  1. Oh man I know what you mean about the money-seems things just keep getting tighter and tighter around here too. I'm going to check out the site!

  2. Thanks for the tip about canning at 200 degrees, I didn't know that could be done. I'll buy in bulk now. I try not to freeze alot of staples - afraid the electricity will go out. I can most of my vegetables, but for some reason I lost a lot of the peas this year. Haven't figured that out yet - the canning process was the same for everything. Enjoy your blog - it's always so newsy..

  3. Thanks for this website - I'm going to check it out. blessings, marlene

  4. I will probably check out the site, also. Prices are going higher and higher and our income isn't getting any higher.

  5. Thanks for the tip, Rosa Mary~ I will definitely check that out because I'm having trouble getting our budget back under control!
