She made it through...

    Is it bad to stockpile wine, beer, and liquor? She was wondering if you stockpiled, would it be bad to stockpile a bottle of wine for every 2 days if you were going for a year's stockpile. I told her no. I think you should stockpile what you will use. If you use the wine, stock it if possible

    Eight years ago my husband and I were both out of work, and deep in debt. Today we are debt free (aside from utilities, taxes, and living expenses). How did we do it?

    Do you feel better in general if you keep busy? As someone who suffers from depression, I feel so much better if I do lots...it doesn't matter if they're the smallest of tasks. If I can make a list of things that I've done during the day, then I feel better. Most people would laugh at what I put...
