Hillbilly Housewife

June 13, 2010

I was taken to task yesterday by Quiltie for not posting here on my blog 🙂 She told me she had been checking every morning and night only to find that I hadn’t posted anything new. This past week was the first week of my kids summer vacation and my schedule has been juggled quite a bit. Instead of running at 10am I end up running at 6:30 am (shock to my system!). I also plan at least 4 free activities for my kids to do during the week so that they don’t get bored and kill each other 😉 Hopefully things will calm down and I will be able to fit blogging in better.

For those of you that hunger for more Cheapness check out this site….

Hillbilly Housewife is another great site I like to visit. Some of my favorite things on this site include:

 –an Emergency $45 meal plan for 4-6 for a week

 –Homemade Convenience Foods

Free Living Wage Calculator

April 11, 2010

This is VERY interesting! See how you and your state stack up. Doesn’t cost a thing to use it 🙂

In many American communities, families working in low-wage jobs make insufficient income to live locally given the local cost of living. Recently, in a number of high-cost communities, community organizers and citizens have successfully argued that the prevailing wage offered by the public sector and key businesses should reflect a wage rate required to meet minimum standards of living. Therefore we have developed a living wage calculator to estimate the cost of living in your community or region. The calculator lists typical expenses, the living wage and typical wages for the selected location.
