    I had to laugh about the post saying you were lying about what cell phone plan you had. I mean, really, really? It’s that important to ‘Bluegrass Customet’ to say that you added $40 to your cell phone bill. Whoop, whoop, that’ll break you! He/she doesn’t even know that as fact!
    How foolish!

    I enjoy reading your posts and I love seeing that things are going well for you and your family. Ignore the haters they are missing what you have… a loving family.

    All humans need to start anew sometimes.

    January is my favorite month! It’s when I make all my plans for the year. I use a planner (not my iPhone, I use a planner from “in the leafy tree tops”) as I find writing with my glitter gel pens fun (lol, I really do!). I don’t have much money, so I focus on how to expand my income, work on what I can do and putting money in the bank for savings. Then I have my grand plans as well. Those rarely get done! But they are fun to plan for anyways. I especially love planning our meals. I always plan our meals out for the whole month. It doesn’t mean that if my plan is to have tacos on tuesday and I don’t feel like making them on that day, I just pull another meal from my menu plan. It just makes it easier for me to have all the ingredients on hand. I shop once a week and since our family is so large and we have so many people popping in, I spend a lot on food. I use my crock pot a few times a week cause it’s so easy and I try to serve a salad with every meal. My plans also always include my garden plans, yards plans, etc.. Where I live we have two free teas pick ups a year. So I always plan months in advance and schedule those free pick ups (you have to call the trash company to let them know). We always have two yard sales a year. Last year we made over 2k on our yard sales. (We had a lot of furniture as my step mom passed and we had to get rid of her stuff). This year my goal for saving money is 5000. I don’t know if I will make it, but I am aiming for it. My goal for my home is new windows (our house is over 70 years old). And a few more fruit trees. I don’t know if I will make all my goals, but I love looking towards the future and what could be!
    Wishing you and yours a fun filled, frugal and industrious 2018!

    People are so hateful. It’s pretty obvious the ones who speak bad about you only wish to have half the happiness your family demonstrates.

    I’d love to!

    Why do you lie? Bluegrass no longer has contracts so you didn’t “negotiate” anything. They have “Freedom Expanded” now, not contracts. You just bought an $800 phone and added about $40 bucks a month for it to your monthly bill.

    Another thing: a phone is only a business expense if you file a return. When was the last time you did that? Hmmmm?

    I have a commercial account and my rep got me a great deal. Instead of assuming you know my personal details about my taxes and insulting and attacking me why don’t you stop to think that you are quite possibly wrong.
