::saving:: the pigs

we do what we can to be wise financially in this economy. we work off of a fairly tight budget.
we pay cash for most things. we put money in savings and investment and we're working up to
6 months of expenses in our savings account. we pay extra every month on our mortgage and
on our student loans. but this is my favorite way of saving: the pigs. cause this money
goes to our VACATION!

Well,if I havn't saved at this point then it's too late soooo I just spend it.
So you are another "pig person". Rhae raises pigs so co-workers have swamped him with pig gifts over the years and he has a real nice collection in his office --- and the real things at home.

This Thursday our Comanche OK relatives (and genealogy buffs) - the Pitts are having a yard sale with another lady who is selling some of her collection of pigs. Do you need some more white ones?
Or anything else - let me know.

The (piggy) yard sale has been postponed to Sept 2 and 3. Think of anything yet?
