Decorate Your Own Cakes and Save

DIY cake decorating

Years ago, Annette's mom took a cake decorating class at ABC cake decorating in Phoenix. She learned so much during that class that she started making THE most delicious cakes our family had ever tasted. She passed her knowledge down to Annette and to our daughters Becky and Abbey too. They all have made fantastic cakes for parties and other celebrations we've hosted.

We'll post some photos of their creations soon.


Rental Car Savings

We're planning a trip to San Antonio, Texas to cheer as our son Roy graduates from Air Force basic training. We're checking rental car prices and looking for the best rates. We'll be comparing the Entertainment Book, AARP, AAA and any other discount plans we can get, and we'll let you know the results.

If you have any suggestions on who to quote, let us know.



Great Webhosting Customer Service

Our web site is hosted by To be honest, there are other providers who may be a little cheaper, but we like the fact that we can call (480) 505-8877, usually spend less than 3 minutes on hold and get a live person (English speaking American) on the phone to help answer any questions we have. No joke, a real person who is well trained and speaks English. We've been to their offices in Scottsdale, and know several people who work there.


Living On A Dime - Frugality to the Max!

Living on a Dime Jill Cooper, Tawra Kellum

Tawra Kellum and her mother Jill Cooper are a dynamic duo of frugality and have authored numerous ebooks about saving money.

As a single mom Jill raised two kids on a limited income without giving up their comfort or security. When Tawra married Mike, they struggled to raise their small family, but by applying the lessons learned from Jill (Tawra’s mom), they were able to pay off $20,000 worth of debt in five years. They did all of this on an average income of $22,000.

Get PREPAID without getting BURNED!

We like T-Mobile Prepaid Plans (read more about them here) and just purchased a pre-paid phone for emergencies. T-Mobile's customer service is phenomenal. Their best deal is to buy 1000 minutes of air-time (1 year expiration) and then roll-over any unused minutes by purchasing any denomination of minutes before the end of the year.
