Trip to Universal Studios

We spent a wonderful week in Orlando at Universal Studios.  It was an exciting time!  We played at Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios for three days.  We enjoyed the restaurants, sights, and sounds of CityWalk.  We had the opportunity to meet Jimmy Fallon while he was filming episodes for The Tonight Show.  And, we were able to see Jimmy Buffett in concert.  Fun was had by all!

Be sure to check out the three songs performed by Jimmy Buffett for The Tonight Show.  If you look near the center, closer to the front (about 8 or so rows back), you’ll see John’s red Duff baseball cap.  I’m standing next to him (in a white shirt) waving my arms around like a fool.  Fun!

Also, one of our pictures is featured on the Universal webpage as one of their #UniversalMoments.  Check it out (scroll down and click on the “Connect” link):


A Town Just For Us!

As we drove to Orlando last week, we passed by a town in Mississippi named Leakesville.  I had to get a picture of my two guys in front of the sign.  Love this!

No More Braces

Camden Without Braces

This goodlookin’ kid had his braces removed today.  He looks so much older without them.  Camden is growing up so fast!

Ice Storm December, 2013

Our Frugal Family Ice Storm Dec 2013

**Click to Enlarge**

Post updated Wed, 12/11:

A winter storm hit our area beginning Thursday afternoon, dropping around 4 inches of sleet.  Schools were closed Friday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  I’m thankful we’re all home, warm, have plenty of food, and haven’t lost power.  Stay safe.

Camden tried several “sleds,” including a cookie sheet, cardboard, and this swimming pool float. The float won.

Tiger stayed warm bundled in his soft blanket.

He has a rough life.

Christmas lights look better with a white blanket of ice. :)



I wanted to take a moment to thank you for supporting Our Frugal Family for the last year and a half.  I’ve enjoyed your emails and interacting with you on our Facebook page.  I’m very sorry for my absence this last month.  Being a great mom, wife, and teacher has dominated much of my time.  And honestly, after coming home from work in early September and finding my sweet cat Joey dead, I haven’t had much of an interest in deal hunting or blogging. 

I apologize if you’ve come to depend on the price match lists; however, it was becoming too overwhelming to keep up with while working full-time.  I hope, at some point, to return to posting the price match lists and grocery store matchups.  Until then, feel free to use the Grocery Stores – General Info link to look up the weekly ads for those stores you plan to shop/price match.  Use the Coupon Database to find coupons that match with the sales.  Then, if you’d like, print your coupons here:  Coupons.com, RedPlum, SmartSource, and Hopster.  :)  I will, from time to time, post freebies or amazing deals that I find.  Be sure to check many of the freebie offers I’ve previously posted as some are still available. 

Thank you again for your support.  Love always,


Our New Cat Joey

About a month ago, this cute tabby showed up by our back door.  He was skinny, dirty, had no tags, and was not fixed.  I can’t turn away a hungry cat, so I gave him some food and water.  Camden spent time with him on the back porch petting him and lovingly referring to him as “Joey.”  We waited, hoping this kitty would make his way back home but based on his thin physique, I doubted he had a home.  After two weeks, Joey just wouldn’t leave.  We took him to the vet, they scanned him for a microchip (none was found), so we decided he should have a checkup, get his shots, and be neutered.

He’s settling into the Leake family nicely, wouldn’t you say?

The Newest Leakes

Yesterday began as any other day:  get up, get dressed, hurry Camden and myself out the door and off to school.  I came home expecting the same.  Instead, I walk in the door to my son yelling “MOM!  Guess what I brought home from school today?!?!”  In his hand was a zip top plastic bag filled with water and a live fish in it.  So what do we do here in the Leake family?  We go overboard and spend $50 at PetSmart — after all, this fish needed a new home along with all the latest accessories, food, water conditioner, and who could forget how lonely he’d be?  So he needed two new friends, too!  I have to say, Camden loves his newest pets and has been taking great care of them.  Of course, it has only been 1 day.  I’m sure by next weekend I’ll be in charge of feeding and cleaning up.

My Friend’s Fat Arm

A friend sent this to me.  I seriously LOL’d — this is so funny!


We decided to take Camden to Cici’s Pizza to celebrate another straight “A” report card.  On the way, we drove by this accident that occurred at a Chevron station.  My husband, without investigating further, immediately states “What did that woman do?”  Woman?!?!  Really?!?!

10 Years on a Chain – Judith’s Story

This is the story of Judith, a poor dog that lived the first 10 years of her life outdoors on a chain. She was subjected to absolute cruelty and neglect by her original owners.  This video breaks my heart.
