Thanksgiving weekend came and went way to quickly. Now Christmas will be here in a blink of an eye!  
I've been surfing the web for all things frugal and came across a recipie for homemade orange cleaner on Pinterest. There was tons of them actually. It's so cool, you just save up some old citrus peels and when your jar gets full pour in some vinegar.  Now I'm supposed to let this sit for at least 2 weeks. And then strain out the oranges and mix the liquid with water into a spray bottle and I will have homemade orange cleaner!!  I'm excited to try it and will update you all after I do!
On Friday my mom texted me rather early an asked if I wanted to go Black Friday shopping with her. Now aim not really a Black Friday shopper. Crazy towns of people all fighting over deals. Not my thing, but since it was 7 am and most sales actually started the night before here this year I decided to go ahead and go. I had no money but I helped her find some things for my kids for Christmas :) The best part came at the end though. We walked into Walmart and she told me to pick out a few groceries I needed.  I literally got tears in my eyes. See, we really were running out of everything. My fridge was empty and my cabnits were getting there as well.  I was so thankful!  I didn't want to go overboard so I just got some fresh fruit(which we hasn't had in weeks) ( also where the orange peels came from). Some bread, milk, toliet paper, toothpaste and some crackers. Those little things ment the world to us!  I'm so lucky to have such a great mother!  That would help out like that without me asking. Even though I feel guilty about it. Hopefully Ben will get that bonus we are waiting on so we can stock up on some necessitys. 
I found some fabric in the closet the other day and decided to drag out the sewing machine an make some more cloth napkins for us. We run out daily. I haven't bought paper towels in a long time. We have one roll I have hid in the cleaning closet that I use when we make bacon for draining the grease off. Otherwise it's cloth. I couldn't remember how to thread the needle so I googled it. Lol. Thank God for the internet!
Here is me Jess and Emma te day of Thanksgiving. Can you tell were related?  :) everyone says we look alike!
