  1. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Hi everyone, Well, maybe I've already taken baby steps already in some ways, certainly find this forum is one step, for sure.... I hope to make this forum my online home to come to as I proceed with facing the ugly truth about my debt. Not even sure where to begin here in telling my story...
  2. Camping, RV's, Trailers, Outdoor Living
    1:30am Saturday (a tongue-in-cheek account) Dear Villagers, I write this in the event I am eaten by a bear while on my family vacation to the White Mountains of NH. As of this writing I have the list of clothes I want to take with me, just waiting for normal hours to go in to the laundry...
  3. Christmas
    Ok folks! Christmas is just a couple days shy of being 6 months away!!! Are you starting your countdown? I have already requested lists from my family members (although I realize I probably won't get them until September at the earliest!) and I'm starting to save jars, boxes and basket I find...
  4. Financial hardship
    I haven't been on here for about 3 weeks give or take. For those of you who have listened to me for many months we turned in the final paperwork today. Well, we mailed it to the lawyer. About 3 weeks ago with our last appointment we turned in alot of it but the total amount was massive as it...
  5. Lifestyle challenges
    I want to own a homestead. Build everything from scratch, grow my own food, live simpler and be more self sufficent. I have wanted to do this since I was little, but never really thought it was possible. Well it's gotten to the point where I don't care if it's possible, I'm going for it. The...
  6. Homesteading and gardening
    It's been nice all weekend. DH did a lot of thinking and we decided to use a 20x8 plot on the side of the house for our garden area. It gets way more sun than our south-facing front yard (mainly because the side yard faces east and gets tons of sun). Tomorrow, I'll be spending the day digging...
  7. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    My husband and I are so excited!! We started our frugal lifestyle and at the beginning of this month, so far so good on that end. We were looking at our paychecks that are coming in at the end of this week and it just hit us that with his part time job and both of our full time jobs we are...
  8. General Chat
    Well, it's January - finally - and my hubby should be on his way back home from Kuwait on Jan 31. ((never trust the military to keep to a schedule though)) I'm so excited I could pop! I think it's finally close enough that it's not too depressing to count down - It's been a really LONG...
  9. Frugal Living
    A mall developer wants to build one in our across the street neighbors' backyards. There's a 25 acre parcel that used to be an office for one company - with most of it green space. My fear is that once they get the property zoned for their mall, they will buy up all the houses that abut the...
  10. Utilities
    We use gas in our house for everything: heat, washer/dryer, stove, etc. Last month our bill was $87.70. This month? $202.96!!!! :( :( :( That is $60 more than it was last year at this time.

  12. Drugstore & Grocery Store Deals/Product Reviews
    I am thrilled with all of these triples again-this is the time that I get to stockpile things I wouldn't normally even buy. The kids love this-all of a sudden there are individual pcks of fruit snacks, store bought cookies and granola bars. I have more shampoo than we can use in a year.
  13. Pregnancy
    Only 18 days to go! Woo hoo. I am getting super excited, it won't be long now. The kids are getting excited too now as they can feel him in my belly moving around, makes it all more "real" to them. I only have two dr's appointments between now and the big day. I am almost giddy with excitement...
  14. Family
    Deana is in a beauty pageant- and today is the interview portion. We get to drive 2 1/2 hours one way for a 5 minute interview! Tomorrow is the actual pageant- with all the modeling stuff and more questions. Stuff like you see on Miss America. It's going to be a LONG weekend.
  15. Leisure & Media Arts
    I was wondering when they were going to start. I new they already had the design picked out but I wasn't sure when construction was to begin. http://home.bellsouth.net/s/editorial.dll?bfromind=846&eeid=4228720&_sitecat=1522&eetype=article&render=y&ck=
