Welcome to my blog

Please don't remind me that I'm poor; I'm having too much fun pretending I'm simply "living green" like everyone else these days.

I'm still working on the large quilt with the pictures coming off. It has lots of stops and starts in the quilting which take time. I can't do anything to help save the pictures but it will still be a nice quilt when they do all come off.

I'm also still working to make room for my daughter to move home. I'm surprised that she's so anxious. I would have thought just the opposite. That she would be reluctant to give up her own place. Then again, she IS moving home to save money for a house of her own. The saved rent and utility money will add up quickly toward a down payment on a house.

So what do I do with all my stuff as I make room for her stuff? That's what I'm trying to figure out. I spend a little time each day to move things and sort things. Then I find a place to put it for a few months. What I worry about is..... out of sight, out of mind. Should I store the stuff or get rid of it? Will I want to go back to use any of it in a few months? For now, storing in odd places is the answer.... later will come soon enough.

You mention your daughter being able to save money on utilities & things. Surely she will be paying half the utilities & groceries & such when she moves in with you won't she? That way you would be able to put a little aside too. Houses aren't cheap, it'll take a while to save for even a small down payment. She could be there a while. Halfsies sounds fair to me.
