As I am sure everybody is, I have also got into the cost-cutting act. I am packing lunch from home these days. That means, I have been cooking during weekdays . So, isn't that great. But I am a late riser, so do some semi-prep the previous night, to avoid the morning rush. What with getting DD ready for school too . Also, am trying to cut down on my visits to the parlor. Doing some pedicure at home more frequently, taking better care of my hair. I'm also trying to find these individual free-lance beauticians who come home and charge a lot less!!!
