The Living Without Series

This is a series of posts that I wrote back in 2006 on living with less stuff. Check them out: liv011Living #2liv031liv04

The Chicken Doctor


The Architect


It’s only $750

This crazy cracker cooked in her crockpot everyday for a year!

This preternatural poster writes a a daily poverty post and it’s all in third person!

Okay, now let’s talk about me.

What would you say if I told you I spend $750 on groceries every month. But, you haven’t heard it all yet, so don’t be a clickin‘ on the comment button ready to spout your wisdom.

That seven fiddy….I like to say fiddy, just like my son says hunerd instead of one hundred. Anyway, that seven fiddy is for every ding dang thang in my house. The animal food, the cleaning stuff….EVERYTHING.


Now, I need to know, is that impressive for a family of six humans with six cats, one dog and 8 chickens? Or not?

Do I still need to learn how to use coupons?

Could I get it down to $600? $500?

Remember, our family has done away with high fructose corn syrup with minor infractions here and there, forgive me I ate the most delicious Snickers bar yesterday and I just talked to Clay on the phone and asked if he was bringing me a surprise home, like Hot Tamales or Reisins?????? Because, I would be soooooo surprised if he brought those home and we could eat them on a plate for dinner.

Then he asked if I was just a wee bit hormonal. What gives?

Okay, so now start tah clickin’ and give me the what for on the seven fiddy.
