Merry CHRISTmas and Happy New Year!

Two nights ago for this occasion, we held a party for West Side Young Adults at our apartment!  I still have unpublished material from then, that I was hoping to publish, in a draft post at this blog.

My health was on the upswing at that time (late 2015). Things went down afterwards though, and 2016 was mixed, while ending on a not-so-healthful note.  For much of 2017, I was in a hospital.  But I still could have done a lot more.

I was hoping, before year's end, to finish the series I've started at this blog, about how to layout layers of savings upon each other, to get prices as close to $0.00 (and sometimes, lower than that!) at the stores.  Great expectations!

But for the moment, I wanted to say: Just as I dropped the ball on blogging this year, THE BALL is going to drop, in less than an hour.

Merry CHRISTmas (which it still is!) and Happy New Year!

Happy Birthday to my Hard-Working Mother!

I was at a friend's birthday party recently, and was glad to hear that my past writings had influenced him to check out freebies for one's birthday. [H/T to Tai and Tarin Perry, from Extreme Couponing :-].

Today is the birthday of my very hard-working mother. I just took her to Firehouse Subs [H/T Freebie Depot], and we're probably going to Denny's tonight.

Happy Birthday to mom... And best wishes to all working mothers out there!
