Chef juls owings when your hubby feels like he failed gas finder near me

########

He has been looking for a 30 ft-32 ft flat bed trailer for hauling things OUT OF STATE… which requires a commercial tag on the trailer… He knew that. He asked at the BMV how much it would cost… no problem , he has that set back. What he should have asked was for the regulations of commercial tags for trailers. I still sigh….I actually sighed just writing it.

OOPS… it weighed over a certain amount and so can’t be used for commercial unless he has the actual title. SO he makes calls, goes and spends 3 days on the ground with snow and bitter cold trying to find VIN numbers literally scrubbed the entire frame with a steel brush trying to find the numbers to realize he bought static electricity human body a salvaged trailer so no title.Whomever did the repair work did a great job. I wish we could afford to keep it and not resell it as it was new.He called about getting a salvage title and was told he could do that for personal use ONLY, not commercial. The company that sold the trailer back in 2007 is searching their records hoping against impossible odds as he could only find 3 of the 17 VIN numbers, that they can locate it for him… otherwise… Thursday he will have to buy ANOTHER trailer that has a title as he had work already lined up starting next week that will be WEEKLY.This is NOT something he can put off. Putting things off is something he is really really good at.

The good news the company we bought our smaller trailer( about half the size he needs for the work) has a few in stock e electricity bill payment so he won’t have to order it, but he will have to buy and install a wench. IF the other company comes up with nothing, which the lady that is even working weekends on her own time to help him told him the chances are in the miracle area…HE is holding on to the IF….

insulation ( have some in my savings but not sure what we will do as the windows seem to be the gas definition science worse, if so I will plastic on the OUTSIDE as all the dogs get in the windows to look out and dog nails go right through plastic). Hubby said he had some insulation still out in the barn he was going to use there so if needed it will come to the house instead.

Instead of ordering 2000 gal of propane which would give us a cushion for bad weather…. we will get 1600 gal. Means I have to be watchful of how I use the cook stove and keeping the furnace down(like I do now) and insulate. Means I HAVE to make the time to sew insulated curtains for the house for next winter.I just tossed what ever we had up this winter even though they weren electricity laws uk’t insulated.

We will take the dogs to our old vet as even with the mileage he is almost half the price of the local clinic for their shots. Toe nails are on us that saves us $30 a month but takes both to cut them.We found another place in town that sells the dog food we use at a great price.Our vet is also the cheapest for their heart worm and flea meds.

Eating out was flipped from grocery budget to spending money ($50 each for the month), I very seldom spend mine , unless I need clothes so it goes to savings. Hubby uses his for coffee and food if he can’t pack his lunch. FYI, when he is on the road with Amish they most times BUY his lunch for him and if they are packing their lunches themselves they say something before hand so he knows to pack his lunch. WHICH means we won’t be eating out very often as I am not known grade 6 electricity unit to pay with MY spending money when I already have food in house.

Grocery budget is $26… yes per month… that is 4 gals.of milk (1 for yogurt) 1 gal of buttermilk, 2 bunches of celery, 2 lbs of carrots, 10 lbs of potatoes, and 3 lbs of onions. Produce will go away during the summer growing so the budget will drop to $12.40 so I can flip the $13.60 to non food when I don’t buy that.SO I took the non food out of the budget. I will have to earn for stocking up and meat (turkey and ham mostly) this fall.

After I finish with this year’s $$ for garden ( remember I already have it put aside from last year) I will put what ever is left in next year’s budget. Next year’s budget is set at $15/month. This is the soil I need to start my seeds and the manure I buy from my neighbor. I am focusing on heirloom/open pollinated this year and saving my own seeds. I will still have seeds from this year for next year and I should be able by the end of next year know which varieties work best here.

House maintenance. $40 down from $100.Our water softener company flipped some plumbing (for free) so the well water goes through the softener 1st and the filter after that so we don’t change the filter every 2 wks but now every 3 months.They have a flush out they do when they bring the salt . We actually pay less NOW with renting the softener than when we were only electricity trading paying for salt and filters at the other house… about 3/4 savings. AND they deliver the salt and put it in.
