I have always preferred home made gifts (giving and receiving) and cooking at home is something that I truly love *thanks to that terribly over priced education. So the Boyfriend and I have a leg up on being prepared to stay in a bit more and save money.
I have been tossing around some ideas about the upcoming spring and how to really spread my budget. My income varies weekly (tipping is NOT a city in china) so for us there is no predicting the future. I dream of veggie gardens and sewing a good bit more. I should ask my Grandma about what she and my Granny did during the Great Depression.
