Mercy, uncluttering is a chore but at least the process has begun. I'll attack another pile today.
As of Monday we cut our cell phone service way down. Jim got rid of his cell phone completely, he's got a beeper and he's never far from a phone. He threw his old one in the glove compartment so he can dial 911 in a pinch. I still have my cell phone but now only have 25 minutes a month. It'll only cost us $15 a month now down from almost $70. Everyone knows to only use it in emergencies and calling mom to ask if you can put on a video for your brothers is not an emergency. (I didn't make that up, I actually got that call on Tuesday.) BTW, we'd been thinking about this for a while and really began monitoring our phone use a few months ago to see if this was feasible.
On the food front, last night we made pizza using Russell's TVP sausage recipe. Wow, it was unbelievably good. I couldn't get my daughters' to keep their hands out of the pan while I was cooking it. I gave prebaking the pizza crust for 5 minutes a try. It definitely made a crispier crust. Since I only have one pizza stone and I make 4 pizza's at a time, I think this might be the route I go for right now.
