I'm not sure if anyone still reads this blog anymore. I've been posting on my main blog for quite a while and let it slip.
I'm going to be living on a bit of a budget over the next few months. The money I have to live on is a bit more than $500 a month but my goal is to keep my expenses under that amount.
If anyone is still here and would like me to post on the subject, let me know in the comments below.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that I'm still alive and blogging over at Annienygma. I have moved to Central Kentucky to eliminate a long, draining drive. We have settled into a rented house and are doing rather well.
I took a job at WalMart over the summer but left it to continue my dream of writing and being a stay at home mother. One of my recent creations is a book entitled The Shoestring Girl: How I Live on Practically Nothing and You Can Too. This book contains the tips and tricks that I use to live on less than $500 a month. I've got it priced low right now on Smashwords but I'm not sure how long I will keep it at that price. I just wanted to get the word out and hopefully help some who can't afford higher prices right now.
In this economy we all need to live on less. We have to. I just wish we could teach the government to do the same!
Anyhow, if you get a chance come visit me over at Annienygma and let me know how you are doing.

Note to my fellow MagicJack users: Comcast has blocked you according to MagicJack customer support.
I went to use my MagicJack this morning and discovered that it would not connect to the internet, and I could not even access the MagicJack webpage!
My Google Voice phone worked so I used it to call my sister, another MagicJack user who is fortunately NOT on Comcast. She contacted Customer Service and was informed that Comcast is indeed BLOCKING access to the website and use of the device!
They have a workaround however. In order to reach as many people as I can I have placed the link and info here. Please share this link with your friends!
The solution works; I have placed and received several test calls on my MagicJack after installing the software.

A few weeks ago I had a flat alongside the Bluegrass Parkway. Instead of calling and hiring someone to fix it I changed it myself.
Saved a lot of time and money in the process!
My dad taught me how to change a tire when I was a kid, but when I told other ladies that I had changed it most had no clue where to begin if they had a flat. As a result I created this tutorial. It covers everything you need to have and do if you ever have a flat on the road.. and little preventative measures that will make life easier if you are ever in this situation.
I hope it never happens to you, but if it does I hope that you will have prepared. Practicing on your car before you ever need to change a tire will help your confidence a lot when you are alone and wet and afraid in the dark.
Seriously ladies, do you actually think Prince Charming exists anymore? With those outfits he used to wear, he’s probably dating some gay guy by now and afraid to break his nails! Just forget about him and do it yourself. It’s quicker that way.

I created my official blog with the intention of letting this and my other freebie blogs fade away, but what am I doing?
Yup—I’m still posting on these blogs!
Maybe not as much as I used to, but for some reason I’m keeping them alive. Not quite ready to give all of them up yet.
Anyhow, Life has tossed me some lemons so I will be moving soon. I will have to stay with family for a bit till I find a place and get settled officially.
To answer your questions, yes it stinks and yes I’ve cried. But I must admit I will enjoy getting rid of this darn drive, and am counting the money I will save in the process.
Wish me luck!

For those that are interested, here is a link to a recipe about making a gallon of liquid soap. This recipe allows you to have the luxury of liquid soap for pennies instead of the dollars those bottles cost you in the store.
Have a nice night!
