Weekend Photo Hunt (Drinks and Gathered)

Usual by this time of the year I pick up a bottle of booze to drink. But money being tight I didn't get anything.
So it was after Christmas I notice the eggnog was mark down it was just under $2.00 (1.54EU 1.28BP) for ½ gallon (1.89 liters)
But if I was to put any booze in the eggnog it would have been rum or brandy.
I kept the gifts that was going to my in-law gathered in one pile. For Christmas eve dinner party.

So for the next week hunt and it will be the first one for 2012. To start the photo hunting season out the challenge is to find Bling I'll need dictionary for this one. Then other one will be Tree Branch   I got something already figure out for this one.
Click on bling or tree branches to learn more about what I call the weekend photo hunt. 

Well it starts tomorrow, 2012 and ½ dozen is having a No Spend Challenge  It would be great she had a no-eat junk food month...”Oh I know I would be detox heavy and going crazy” ...”I got off subject sorry about that”
I'm staying out of these stores in month of January....Wal-mart....Thrift store....no driving to Sandpoint...I won't be going to any rummage sells like they have them this time of year up in North Idaho.
The only place I will venture into is a place that sales food and necessity of life such as toilet paper.
Daisy, Rosie, and Ziggy pet food.
I know my electrical, phone, water, and natural gas is always under $200 a month.
But I'm clueless what we spend of food.
I can see this challenge will be good thing not to add any more stuff to what I already have.
Both hubby and I don't live in squalor conditions but it getting tight of things in shed/barn. This will be a good chance to start to clean it out...not add anymore stuff.
So ½ dozen is asking anyone else to to join in


  1. Both great takes on the themes :) Happy photo hunting and Happy New Years!

  2. I don't like eggnog at all ! It's too sweet for me.
    I compare food prices from different shops and buy it there where it is the cheapest ! and I don't care about brand marks !

  3. Nice pics for the theme. Happy New Year!


  4. Sounds like things are tight there. I live so cheap that I always have money for extras if I want something. I put aside 3 or 4 hundred a month so I can pay cash on higher priced things.

    Don't keep track on what I spend for food but it isn't much. That's a good price on nog but I'm not into it as much as I used to be.

    Enjoy a peaceful evening.

  5. Buy most food at Safeway so I can get a 10 cent a gallon gas discount. Mostly buy discounted cuts of meat that are at the pull date.

    Run it through my old hand grinder for soups, burgers, meatloafs, etc. Tenderloin at 50% off makes a damn sight better hamburger than the crap they sell for over three bucks a pound and is cheaper.

  6. Oh, I should check the eggnog prices here, too.

    You are already living a bare-bones existence. I can't imagine you trimming down any more than you already do.

    I'm going with the definition of "bling" of something shiny like an over-sized necklace. You won't find it in the dictionary, being ghetto slang.

  7. I never tried yet the egg nog...Mine is up too.


  8. One of the things I miss about living in the US is the eggnog that one can get in convenience stores around Christmas time. I loved drinking the Wawa egg nog straight (no alcohol needed -- it was that good)! :D

  9. Yum~ a sip of egg nog would be perfect. with or without.
    Happy New Year! I hope we see you next Saturday . . . and bring some BLING! (I love Audry's definition of getto slang!)
