    I used to use Cover Girl's 'marathon' waterproof mascara (I think that's what it was), haven't been able to find it for a while now. I wear contact lenses, and always buy 'waterproof', but it seems no matter what brand/type I try within hours I have that lovely raccoon look! Anyone have the...
  2. Question and Answer
    I used to get emails everytime one of the threads I subscribe to had another post to it. Lately, I've not gotten any. I've checked, and I'm still set up to instantly get an email for a new post. I also checked my subscribed threads, and they are still there.

I like and have used Expedia for years, but I'm wanting to go lower if possible. I want as good a deal as I can get. I hear about people getting tickets for less than...

    Hi. I'm Aspiring To Be Frugal and I have dial-up Internet. Does anyone else feel the insatiable urge to apologize to others for a phone line being busy due to their resistance to purchasing high-speed Internet? I've had numerous people tell me "your line was busy" over the last couple of...
  8. Success Stories
    I posted earlier about my financial situation, so I'll be brief. Next year I'm going to have a whole lot less money and I decided to begin living frugally now while it's a choice instead of a necessity. When the time comes, I don't want any nasty suprises. They only area my husband and I can...

    Why are they always green? I've been peeling taters since 1963, I never saw a greenish (raw?) tater. Now when I take them out of the bag, they have a slight greenish hue under the skin, and when I peel them, they are green 1/16 of the way through. I hate to take off too much peel (I can...

    So this year I start Christmas shopping early. And by early, I mean two months in advance.
