Not Too Proud...Add Your Own!

I'm not too proud to:

When ordering pizza, I'm not too proud to empty free packets of parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper packets into my own containers at home.

To take home left-overs from a restaurant.

To put the crackers from a salad into my purse for later.

To pick up a penny from the ground.  (I once found $100!)

Accept used items from family. 

To color my own hair.

To cut my son's hair myself.

To shop at Goodwill.

To keep my "outdated" decor.

---

Oh, and in case anyone thinks I'm poor...far from it. 

I'm proud to say I'm frugal!

My husband likes McDoubles plain, and I like them with extra onion and pickles. So he orders all of his stuff on the side, and I put it on my burger. LOL

I went with Timewarner a couple of years ago, because I fell for their $99 package. Well after 2 years my bill went up to $249!

So, I switched back to Dish Network. It is only $62 a month. I don't need a house phone! I have Earthlink for internet! I don't need anything more then that. It is on $14.99 a month.

My husband and I discussed it. He said it affects you the most, so we will do what you want. I don't want to pay $250 to Timewarner. So I am very proud to admit we downsized and went with DSL instead of broadband.

I can use them- reuse- and reuse again and again! I pack individual meat servings in them, and cook them for myself during the day.
