    I find brand new pants at the thrift store all the time. My new favorites are olive green skinny jeans. I loooove them. They were $5. Granted, that's not work khakis, but I'm positive you could find some nice pants in the size you need for cheap, especially if you just need a transitional size for now, like I do. Plenty of people donate barely- or never-worn clothes and it's way better than slapping down $$ on something new that you'll only be able to wear for a couple months.

    The same thing for "The icing on the cake". We could change that to, "The butter on the steak".

    A couple of months ago we planted about 30 potatoes in our garden, and sowed sweetcorn (12 have come up). Then we discovered Primal.

    What the hell are we going to do with all those potatoes come harvest time?

    Potatoes aren't so bad really. Mark says it better than me:
    Are Potatoes Paleo? | Mark's Daily Apple
    Are Potatoes Healthy? | Mark's Daily Apple

    I think the corn could be a once-off indulgence. Definitely shouldn't be a staple, but an ear or two per season will probably not hurt you.

    Maybe you could sell the surplus at a local market.

    Yeah, but assuming a 12-fold yield (not unreasonable), that's still 360 potatoes, to be eaten within, say, six months. That's one each every day. We do not exercise enough for that much starch!

    I think our relatives and friends might be getting a windfall.

    My community planted tomatoes, have kind of an allergy to them but not bad but at end of season probably without telling us they will rip all the tomato plants out which will upset me. Kind of random I know.......

    Yeah, potatoes aren't that bad. And 28 ears of corn can make 5 gallons of corn wine, which, if you think about it, is about a half click shy of whiskey. I've had some good corn wine, and I've made some that would take the rust off a car bumper. Good luck.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Did this for the first time in a while today . . . though I think it's more because I had to pee so bad, than that I was well rested. Thanks, ketosis diet!

    LOL! That is excellent!

    I had the same thought the other day looking at my crafting supplies which include three empty Pringles containers . . . How am I going to restock?

    I won a Swiss ball, already inflated, from a neighbor the other day. I was driving down the alley and there it was on top of a stack of boxes next to their dumpster. I stopped and internally thanked them for the gift - I'd been needing one of those!

Cooking usually involves a trip to the store, prep, cooking, eating, and washing dishes which can take close to two hours when all is said and done.
    I live in a house with just one other girl and we both try to eat fresh food as often as possible. We've got pantry space, but the freezer and fridge are packed to the gills! (The freezer is mostly my meat and frozen veggies.

    I need a deep freeze! (Between new clothes and marginally more expensive foods - primal IS expensive!)

    My frustration lately is my golf game has fallen apart with my weight loss and flexibility increase.

    My flexibility has skyrocketed, and with that flexibility has come a huge increase in my swing speed. I promise I am not lying when I say my average drive is over 300 yards, and I have usually 1 drive in the 330-340 yards each round.

    Here lies the problem- I caved in the face of my R11 driver! I am lost without my driver! My new driver is on the way from taylormade, but I hate playing without one!

    My scores have went up by around 8 strokes because I can't dial n the added length of my irons. For example- pitching wedge was around 130, now I am hitting it over 150- 6 iron was around 180- now it is flying from 215-225. What the hell? I don' t feel I am swinging that hard, but I hit some balls on the monitor and my swing speed was approaching 125 and a few higher. For all u golfers out there, that is pretty crazy for me.

    Oh well, I will figure it out one day and play this stupid game good, at least I am healthier and feel great- golf is just a game!
