The Containers the World Forgot

Shopping for groceries has gotten ridiculously expensive. I spent almost 10 dollars on just a gallon of milk and carton of eggs not long ago.

Saving money would be nice, but I can't see myself using coupons because I live in an area where the stores don't double coupons and there really are no competitors for sales. Yes folks, small towns do have their downfalls.

I've considered growing my own vegetables using the container method, since I've been saving containers and seeds from already bought vegetables and household food containers I can't bare to throw away.

I've also stockpiled on produce that the local store sells cheap because it's been sitting on the shelves for more than a week. The produce can easily be frozen to preserve it.

Still. I'm thinking I can really save money by growing my own,naturally without spending a dime.

Right now I have bell pepper, jalapeno and tomatilo seeds to start from vegetables I bought on sale at the local store. I'd like to expand to some other vegetables and maybe fruits too.

I think I'll start doing more research on container gardening and start something this year. Time to start saving money. I'll need it.

Eventually, I'd like to expand my money saving ideas on things like water, electric and gas as well. Maybe gather water from the rain we get for the garden or from excess shower and cooking water.

I'd also like to start a scrap composte to cut down on waste and create some great soil.

Right now, I'm just really excited about starting a container garden. Or I was. I wanted to use the soil from mother earth, but was just told that's not an option.

Really? I'd like to know, why not? I was really looking forward to this project. Now I'm simply depressed.

So many things I'd like to do, but now I'm no longer so sure.

Donanza is on My Don't Use List

I use to like donaza for freelancing work, but lately they've allowed bogus companies looking to take advantage of donaza on their website.

My latest experience with this was a bogus company who contacted me through Donanza with an interest in hiring me for a data entry position they had available. When I replied as they'd requested, I immediately received an automated email that was a link for freelance writing company offering job leads for a fee.

Really people? I hope others realize the scam of this and I really wish Donanza would check out companies looking for employees before they allow them to use their website!

Heaven Has No Shame

She flung the wedding rings with so much hurt, so much pain, the angels from above broke down in shame. They'd done this. They'd caused the sobs that now racked her body. They'd caused so much pain, yet they simply did not care.

Why should they? She was not worthy of they special attention. She was not perfect in their shimmering golden eyes. She could never do anything right, so why should they show her any mercy. Yes, they were ashamed, but she'd deserved it all.

Let her learn her lesson. Let her weep and die of a broken heart. Let her fall and never rise again. Just let her. Let her.

Your Opinion Please

The best tannoy monitors at musicians friend makes me wonder if they would interest a friend of mine. He does a lot of DJing work and uses monitors for his gigs. But I also know it's hard to update equipment, especially a monitor when you're on a tight budget.

So what I would like to know, in your opinion is this specific brand of monitors worth saving for? Maybe he can put back a little money from each of his gigs, to purchase one.

So what's your opinion?
