About Me E-mail
Have you heard the one about the homeschooling family that lives on less than $22K a year in an area that costs above 100% (116%) of the National CoL Index?

I haven't quite figured out why so many people still persist in perpetuating the myth that living on a single income and homeschooling on a dime aren't possible. I can only suppose these are people who can't imagine life without a daily trip to Starbucks and dinner out several times a week. The people who actually shop at malls (*shudder*) and think "Brand Name = Best". The people who really live by the "Keeping up with the Joneses" mentality.

That? Would not be us!

Welcome to our world. We cook from scratch. Buy from thrift stores. Find 95% of our homeschool materials for free. This is my blog and this is how we do it.

Wednesday Quick Tip (4)

Are you an OPEN OFFICE (a lot like MicroSoft Works) user? My computer came with "pre-installed" software from MS, but it turned out to be some sort of trial-only version and if I really wanted to use it, I was supposed to go to the website and pay for a download.

Er. Well. Thanks anyway. I'll take the free open source version. :)

If you use Open Office, you might be interested in the following links. They have templates for everything from CD covers to labels to resumes and so on.

From the Open Office site itself:

From off site, user created templates:
