Yep I am tighter than a crabs butt and that’s waterproof.
Cost were actually down a little this year compared to last, thank goodness.

I contributed the lower cost to our extremely mild winter last year along with lower fuel and fertilizer prices.

Sometimes I think I'd be better off doing nothing, but I tried that, and it's no fun.
