Every Which Way But Chicken


I have a habit of buying in bulk, then so tired from shopping, freezing in bulk...which means.. defrosting in bulk... HONEY, I have got to discipline myself into making those neat little Suzie Homemaker packages. But I just. Can't.

Chicken N' Dumplings - Quick and Easy



I have fallen in LOVE with Chicken and Dumplings. Just the dumplings, really. Such a cute name, such a easy way to stretch the pot and the dollars. Yummerz. Dumplings can go on anything but I think the most well-known version is over a pot of creamy chicken and vegetables. Yaassss....



 Brace yourself because it's super-easy. Seriously. I take chicken (I prefer thighs because they are usually cheaper than other cuts or packages),

De-Mess De-Mystified: Hey, a Tiny Organizational Thing that works for Me!


You got a purse or wallet stuffed with receipt, coupons and heavy change. You leave it in your purse or wallet because you don't know what to do with it. OR you dump everything into a jar or bowl. Well, let's take that two steps further... and this a very simple "trick" that I've been using for awhile and it ACTUALLY works for my lazy butt.

We Can't Pay for Our Son's College Tuition



For a couple of years now, my husband has been stressing about the college costs for our children, particularly our son, who will be eighteen and college-ready in 2018. We have three thousand dollars set aside for him today. We might have double that in 2018. We likely won't have much more. Should he still go to college?

Hell, yes.
