I may have to have another get to know me week in the future. You guys are just full of questions!
Do you have a washer/dryer at home? Do you use a clothesline? ~ Susan
Yes I have a regular washer and dryer in the house. I have a clothesline sitting out in the yard waiting to get set up….Hopefully the hubby will find time this spring.
How did you get your page going so well? ~ Carol
It took a long time to get to where I’m at today. I learned alot from asking other bloggers and I kept careful eye on what my readers seemed to like and what I liked to talk about. The first couple months I wasn’t very serious about blogging but after I got through that and really started blogging seriously things really picked up!
Do you buy souvenirs when you go on vacation? ~ Theresa
Not really. I’m not a souvenir kind of person. I like to use my money to buy other things that I really want and need. I used to buy postcards for my scrapbook but since me and the hubby have great cameras we can get pics of pretty much whatever. I do like to buy books sometimes if we visit a historical site.
What do you feed your chickens to get them to lay eggs? ~ Theresa
We just feed them regular layer feed. We mix in a little oyster shell to make sure the egg shells are hard enough. I also feed them lots of table scraps and we are starting to feed them clabber.(older milk) Our chickens are also free range so they eat lots of bugs and stuff they find in the grass.
Will you be blogging while you’re gone on your trip? ~ Melissa
Haha, good question. I wouldn’t leave ya’ll with nothing! I’m planning out serveral posts from while I’m gone and I also have several guest posts lined up. I will be working a little when I have internet to try and get the weekly coupon matchups up.
I was wondering if your $100 grocery budget included paper goods like toilet paper, etc. And also if the $100 covered all of your hubby’s lunches to? ~ Rachel
I know I haven’t been keeping up with my monthly grocery budget shopping posts very well! Right now we have been running between $100 and $150 and that is for groceries and for health and beauty and paper goods. I’ve had to up it a little bit since it’s winter and I don’t have my own produce yet and since we went to an all natural/organic diet. The hubby just takes leftovers for lunch but occasionally I find a good deal on a frozen meal or 2 for him for a treat. I have a strict price point for everything(that you will learn about next week in a post!) and I do not purchase items over that price point. I’m also very vigilant about knowing what’s an awesome price for something so I can stock up and when I stock up, I really stock up. Just ask the hubby how much King Arthur flour is in my pantry….
