I have already been shopping and back and I used the gift card wisely.

We’re having chicken and yellow rice with green beans tonite. Yummy!

The purchases will get us through a few more days as we are still waiting on the donations from GoFundme. I had really hoped they would be here today. Tomorrow, probably! 🙂

All in good time as they say, tho. 🙂

Immediate needs change as hours ,days, weeks pass!


Hi, when I created All But Homeless, I knew we were not going to get overnight relief for our situation. I knew it would take time to evolve, develop a following, and make friends, etc..

I am SO grateful to the response so far. Ya’ll have been AWESOME. To date , this site has generated more than $100.00 to benefit us in this very real time of need. Thank you to those who have contributed in one way or another . You don’t know what it means to us.

In the grand scheme, $100, doesn’t seem like much, does it? BUT it’s ALOT when you have nothing. 🙂

The hundred dollars ( or equivalent, as we received a gift card, and care package in response to this fundraising effort ) has made the difference between going without food, pet supplies, etc. It also FREED up what little money we are making to pay utility bills and so forth. My point is IT MADE a HUGE difference!

In the last few days, I have begun receiving emails, mostly offering moral support ( THANK YOU ALL for your kind words ) But also asking what the needs are presently. That part of this is hard to keep up with because the needs change as times goes by. Sometimes the needs change from minute-to-minute depending on which wolf is at the door. I don’t mean to be melodramatic but this is the truth of the matter.

Right now we are facing a few REALLY scary deadlines which are further explained on our needs page so I updated the page this morning , and will continue to make updates any time something changes.

Thank you so much for your concern and kind support. And as always, GOD BLESS!

When times get tough, the tough, go shopping! :)

With the help of a very nice woman who sent me a $40, Publix Gift card. And I was so looking forward to going yesterday, but the serpentine belt that runs the car , shredded on my husband yesterday 😦 leaving us without a car overnight.

It was parked in a parking lot three miles from home. The neighbor, took my husband to the parts store last night and thankfully my husband made enough yesterday to purchase the replacement belt.

This morning my husband left on foot to go remedy the car trouble. A few hours later, he called to tell me it was running again.

Whew! I am grateful because my husband IS NOT a mechanic.

My husband was also quick to remind me that it could have been much worse, I had to agree and thanked my lucky stars ( God, actually) that I wasn’t alone in the car or we were not miles from home when it happened.

So any way my husband came home and picked me up and I dropped him back off at the store and went shopping.

It felt so good to get out of the house for awhile.

So what does one buy with the benefit of a ‘gift’ card ?

Steak, seafood, a lovely bottle of wine, beer, cigarettes ? NO!

The first time through the check out line……

I bought chicken thighs, a lb of hamburger, 2 cans of Chunky soup, a large can of raviolis, parmesan cheese, yellow rice, instant mashed potatoes, canned peas, a half a gallon of milk, a package of bologna, a dozen eggs and two cans of cat food.

The second time through the line …

I took advantage of a BOGO, and was able to get a six pack of pepsi, a six pack of mountain dew, a small bag of sugar and a $2.99 Cuban sandwich for my husband’s lunch.

There was .91 cents left on the card when I left the store. 🙂

I am sure we will have to pick up a few things but that will feed us for four days, allowing us to spend the little money we are making on other essentials.

Again, thank you KW. 🙂
