I liked the Facebook page and have been following your column for a while. I love the many tips and ideas it gives to help save. We have already stated lists for projects around the house and the many MYO items for next year Christmas baskets, after we try them ourselves of course.

I have always tried to learn to make things myself and with the economy it is more of a necessity. I fell and damaged my leg, knee and ankle almost a yr ago while waiting on call back to work. The moment I got hurt I was no longer eligible for unemployment. The Lord has made a way but I have a 17 yr old daughter working 2 part time jobs to help out. So pennies really do count any way we can save them.
