Since it's been so long since I've posted, I thought you might like to see how our family has grown and changed in the past 3 years.
This photo was taken at Arlington National Cemetery in July when we attended my great uncle's funeral.
In the past 3 years we've added another family member!
I am looking forward to making some changes and updates here on the blog and I appreciate the emails that I received from those of you who have endured the 3 years of silence!

My life is very different now (ready "busy") and I don't have as much time for doing deals as I once did, but I still love to find a good deal.
Moving seems to be a recent habit of ours and so here we go again and in about 2 weeks we are moving house again - but staying in Indy this time. I am looking forward to doing some decorating - Frugalindy style and have been thinking about posting here with some of the ideas and photos.
If you're out there and still getting this feed, I'd love to get a comment from you!

I've been wanting to stop back and write a post for sometime and let you all know why I am no longer writing Frugal Indy. In May, we packed up the moving van and headed 2400 miles north west to British Columbia, Canada.
I plan to leave the blog up for the time being as there are still those of you who like to visit to get recipes that are posted here.
I am thankful for those of you who I met though the Frugal Indy website and the Savvy Saving classes! It was a real pleasure meeting so many wonderful Hoosiers!
We are enjoying the beauty of the Northwest! I just wish there was a CVS around here!

I Corinthians 15
But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

I found that the store was packed with merchandise and that the clothing was well priced. I was able to get all the items pictures below for only $12.
One of the keys to reducing your family's clothing bill is to look for items BEFORE you need them. If you wait until you need the item then you might have to pay full price.
I do not think my son's winter items will fit next year - so I went ahead and got him the next sized coat and snow pants. The blue coat is a very nice Land's End coat that I paid only $3.50 for the yellow coat was only $1.50. It is more worn than the other but will make an excellent play coat. The Snow pants were only $1.75
This tie is 100% silk and looks like it was never used. This was only$1.25.
Our VCR decided to start eating tapes a few weeks ago and so it was time to replace it. I found
one that looked nearly new for only $4. The top was a little dusty - but that was easily fixed. Thankfully it works great!
Do you have a favorite thrift store here in Indy? Leave a message and let us know about it.

One of the things I've been doing is massive Spring Cleaning!!! I've also been totally inspired by Thrifty Decor Chick (Sarah) and have done a bit of updating with some paint. I only found her blog awhile ago and I love her ideas.
Here is an item that I have been working on during the past few weeks. I show you the wonderful new look in a few days. This in an old cabinet that we found in the barn of our first home, it was so dirty and old that it looked like it should go into the trash! I gave it this paint job MANY years ago and am now tired of the look. We use it to hold videos inside and our VCR goes on the top.
Below are some of the pictures that got me motivated to give it an update.
These pictures are from the Thrifty Decor Chick's website and are projects that Sarah did. I LOVE the coffee table. In fact, I bought a coffee table this past week at Goodwill for under $20 and did a redo on it! I'll show you that soon too - I think it looks great!
Thanks Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick for the inspiration!
The paint color that is used here is called Black Suede from Behr (Home Depot).
Stop back in a few days and I will have the finished project for you to see!
