This week has been a little nutty. I’ve been trying to get back into ‘real’ life after the Chile trip, and I’ve also been preparing to do a couple of talks about bringing down your grocery budget. Thursday’s talk was on skype, with patrons of the Tuskarawas County Library in Ohio. Friday morning I met with a MOPS group in Boise. Both talks turned out to be a lot of fun. People obviously cared about the topic and had great questions, which made it even more fun. And the babies at the MOPS group– be still, my heart, they were gorgeous! Shout out to any of you who might be reading here– thanks for hanging out with me and adding to the discussion.
I always enjoy hearing other people’s ideas for saving money. One woman mentioned that she freezes her old bananas and then makes banana pudding out of them. I make banana bread with mine, but I haven’t tried banana pudding, so that was an interesting idea for me. Another woman said that she’s found gallon ziplocks to be cheapest at the dollar store in our area, which I thought was another good tip.
I’ve got more talks coming up at the end of April at homeschool conventions in OKC and in Tulsa. I am interested in feedback from any of you who might live in or around Oklahoma City. We’re talking about doing a meetup for anyone interested in getting together with other bloggers/ blog readers in the area. If you’d be interested in something like this, would you weigh in and tell me which time is better for you? The times we are considering are:
- Tues April 26th at 11:30AM OR
- Wed April 27th at 7:30 AM
I am guessing this will mostly appeal to people who are already planning on attending the homeschool convention, but anyone near OKC is welcome! If you are interested, would comment here or email me (email@example.com) and tell me which time is better for you? There’s also going to be a meetup in Tulsa, probably Thursday evening April 28th, so let me know if you’re interested in that one too. Thanks!
I am now off to run kids to soccer. Tomorrow I’ve got another big book giveaway, and I’m hoping to finish telling you about our Chile trip! We’ll see how much of it gets written!
