Living a thrifty lifestyle has been my passion since I was old enough to understand money. One of the biggest lessons I learned about this lifestyle is you can work yourself to death to earn more or you can spend less. I pride myself in working smarter and spending smarter so I spend less. I am a lifelong reseller and have extensive experience valuing items (for my market). I love to share that information for people who want to earn extra cash by selling off their excesses.

The other rare reaction is a look of pure relief that there is a kindred soul out there.

Carmel Ann (Mini Dachshund) - pretty Dachshund wearing necklaces

In Memory of Carmel Ann (Mini Dachshund)I saw this tiny girlie sitting in her water dish in a pet store window in 1999. Please don't judge me because at that time I had no idea of puppy mills (my fur son is a rescue and we actively support rescue causes). All I knew was pure and absolute love at first sight.

First Comes Love, Then Comes Budget"'To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part''."
