Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I can't believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving!  Wow!  Time has really flown since our baby was born back in March.  She is now 8 months old.  I can't believe it!

Finances continue to be tough but I feel we are starting to dig out of it all.  The medical bills will be paid off real soon!  That is exciting.  Christmas gift giving is going to be slim this year.  Going to have to rely on our creativity with that one.

We have started receiving quite a bit of sales through, etsy, facebook and craft shows (post orders).  So this is all helping up dig out of our financial mess.  Praying it continues to work in our favor and we really get out of it and can be comfortable for a little while.

Happy Thanksgiving once again!

Tip: Open all mail as soon as you get it!

Lesson Learned:  don't let mail sit around unopened.  I almost let my children's insurance lapse due to this.  I had no idea I was suppose to send documents in to verify they were my dependants and was about to be dropped and by questioning folks that I work with on Facebook...they explained what my phone calls was about...and by the Grace of God...I got my stuff faxed before they started dropping people!

Talk about scary and an easy  money saver...uhhhh....need to have insurance!!!!  Don't ignore mail.  I had it under a pile of what I thought was junk...embarrassingly enough for months!!!!  I got lucky!  Don't make the same mistake...may not be as lucky with this wild economy. 

Just thought I should report that simple tip that I will start following from now on myself.

Have a great day!
