On the Subject of being frugal...

Note to all - We have cut our cell plans down to minimum.  If you are on AT&T, you can still call us for free or please IM us online. No more texts & pics! :~(               (Sorry!). 

This is a small first step towards cutting back and getting out of debt. 

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE... still IM us, send photos to EMAIL, email us, send us "real" snail mail, etc.  We love hearing from our friends! Please ask us to do low-cost or no-cost outtings.  If you are hosting a booth at a Con or Craft show, and would be willing to take some of our pieces for a small commission/percentage - please let us know! If you see any good opportunities to make money (or have seamstress or leather-working jobs) for me or Mick, please let us know.

I will be working at Texas Renn Faire on the weekends for tips only, and if it proves to not be profitable at all... then I will have to quit.  Same goes for Sherwood Forest Renn Faire and Scarby. 

If you see excellent office job opportunities for me... please send them my way!  I'm sending out resumes every single day, but have not had any strong leads yet.

We are on a mission to be 100% debt free as soon as possible and to create an "emergency fund" to help us remain so!

Much Love,
Manda (& Mick)

You betcha! If we come down to Dallas soon we'll go do something exciting. You're the only people we know in Dallas, I think. I'm off on weekends until mid October. I'm totally coming up there if we can find the gas monies.

Hey, Moraiwe!
We'd love to see you guys. I'll be working TRF, so only weekend I plan on being home is Oct. 3-4. We'd love to see you no matter what, though.

*Huge Hug*

I know this plan
Low cost outings, emergency fund and out of debt, sounds like Dave Ramsey. Get the book "Total Money Make Over", half priced books.

Re: I know this plan
Already did...Mick is reading it now. We got it for $10 on Ebay, cause Half Price never had a copy. Thanks for recommending it months ago! ;~)

Dallas visit...
We will be in Dallas for the birth of our new neice from Oct. 8-18. I will be in Houston for part of that visiting my parents. I would have to check with John, but I'm sure we'd love to take you guys to dinner (our treat). Also, we've talked about taking Mick (and you of course, if you're interested) to see Zombieland while in town. Mull on that. Also, I had mentioned getting you to make me some bloomers a while back; make sure we talk about that when we see you, and I'll pay you up front for them. Love you guys! Hang in there with the job hunting!

Re: Dallas visit...
AWESOME!!! We'd love to spend time with you guys. I'd love to make you some bloomers. Let me know your waist size via email and the measurement from ankle to waist. Need to know what kind of fabric/color/etc. You looking for lacey/lace panels or solid too.

*HUGE Hug*
