A place for me to record my thoughts as I save time, live frugally and stay organized.
I am a 53-year-old architect, and I live in New Mexico with my husband D, daughter F, a big white dog and a big white cat and a sweet black dog. I used to track our toilet paper usage (and how often I buy dental floss, and our grocery bills and a lot of other things, too) and that is how we paid off our mortgage early. I still track every dollar and dime we spend.
