~ Living within our Means ~


  1. Thanks for sharing the Mexican goulash recipe

  2. Those meals are very photogenic!

  3. Good observation, Anna. These are lighter than the Corelle plates we have. They get a lot of use and look like it too. LOL ... anything to lighten the load. :) :)

  4. If we were neighbours we could invite one another round for tea! Xo

  5. Don't laugh at me, but never before had I tapped "thyme2save" above my comment. It took me to a profile that listed a blog, "thyme2save" with a
    photo beside it. I do not have a blog nor a clue whose photo that is. Will you remove the blog and photo that are not mine? Silly girl, I know you will.

    1. I think you would have to remove that from your computer, Anna. I did unfollow you if that helps any. So odd how that happened. Maybe you should start a blog? You have a lot of great frugal advice! :)

    2. She was much kinder with you!

  6. Belinda, I changed my poster name to thyme2Bthrifty. If this works and is okay with you, I am thyme2Bthrifty.
