  1. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    This year, we've decided to bite the bullet and get our taxes done at H&R Block here in Canada. Has anyone Canadian used their service and has an opinion of it? The main reasons are as follows: We don't want to be reassessed again and end up owing when somehow, someone miscalculated...

    Hello! We're new here and excited to learn/share some new things in relation to healthy living and frugality. My husband and I recently watched Food Inc together and even though we have already been buying from Farmer's Markets and a few organic products, we were shocked by what we did not know...
  3. Needle Arts
    A few days ago I finally saw a pattern book in Hobby Lobby that I'd seen listed on Amazon and could finally really look at it. I didn't have to look long. I had a coupon in hand and it came home with me. It's 50 Fabulous Crochet Squares by Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss, published in 2009...
  4. Question and Answer
    We will be going on vacation in July and I have been thinking of cooking our lunch for to eat on the way on our car engine block. Not only would be a great learning oppurtunity for my kids and will save us money from having to buy lunch on the way but it will also be a great "do you remember...
  5. Leisure challenges
    You know, Homesteadmamma's post commenting on her challenge to herself to make 100 blocks one year got me thinking... Is there anyway we could do a similar challenge on this board? Only maybe do a block a week. And just take photos to show each other what we've done? And, eventually sew...

    I haven't worked on my project for the last few days because I just can't get into the mood. I also can't get past a writer's block that's preventing me from both writing new material and editing the material I have written already. I sat down yesterday and went through the first chapter, noting...

  10. Kitchen Basics
    I keep a lot of pantry overflow on shelves in the garage. Apparently the air in there is quite moist and I now have a 5 lb bag of sugar that has turned into a solid block of concrete. Is there anyway to salvage this or do I have to pitch the whole thing? Thanks for your help. P.S. I've...

    Hi all! I have finished and decided to sell my latest two mosaic projects. I have two mosaic quilt block trivets. They would probably best serve as a decorative item, as the grout does not repel stains, but if you weren't concerned with that, I have used my own quite often. They measure just...
  14. Automotive
    The part is only $39.95, however labour is $55.00 per hr and it will probably take close to 2 hours to do. If your wondering what a "block heater" is, only 2% of vehicles have them. Those who live in the frozen north where it's cold and you need to plug in the block heater so your vehicle...

    Here is the first block of the Hot chocolate club BOM I'm doing. I will be starting the second block this week. The the next blocks do not come until the first of each month.
