Need Ideas for Christmas Gifts Under $10

November 12th, 2008 at 10:27 pm

I need gift ideas for my cousins who are ages 20 - 28. Anyone have any ideas?

My husband found a job!

My husband found a job! What a relief. So now we have one income to live on instead of unemployment. Now I need to find a job too to get back on track, hopefully before the holidays.

I am cooking a lot more and we hardly eat out anymore... saves us a lot! A restaurant bill is as much as a grocery bill.

Spent $31.66 on Groceries

My husband and I are both unemployed and living very, very frugally. I hate to admit it but this experience has taught me a lot, that I don't need much to be happy. With this time off, I've learned to cook a lot more things too.

Today I went grocery shopping at the local Chinese grocery store.

Here's what I got for $31.66:

$9.65 2 lbs of chicken tocino (marinate chicken)
$ .49 bunch of green onions
$3.19 boneless skinless chicken breasts
$3.33 whole tilapia fish
$5.46 skinless salmon fillet
$ .99 dried buckwheat noodles
$ .45 2 yellow onions
$ .99 tofu
$2.64 package of shiitake mushrooms
$1.88 3 chayotes
$2.59 dozen eggs

(Without the chicken tocino, this would have been around $20.)

I still can't believe this. $30 is how much I would spend on a meal out with my hubby.
