  1. Make It Yourself
    I'm looking for a template--or ideas on how to make storage boxes out of cardboard which I will then cover with paper or photos. Can anyone suggest how I can find such a template for an 8 by 11 box with a lid? If I could get the stacks and stacks of magazine articles and other stuff of DH's off...

    Due to the economy my bf and I are looking to start growing some of our own vegetables. While we were in the hardware store we saw some Earth Box containers. When we got home we researched them. They are a rectangular container with a 3-4 gallon water reserve in the bottom, they have wheels...

  4. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Like I could scream. My husband has one in our bank. UMB. They charge 30 bucks a year and this morning I checked on-line and was not expecting this in the budget. We tried to go to the bank to stop this(last year)....but it was a hundred dollar fee to stop and they would drill in the safe. They...

    We are moving! Yes! We sold our house and now have to pack and leave. I refuse to go to a moving and storage place and pay money for boxes. So I'm asking: where are the best places to get free boxes for packing? What kinds of boxes do we look for or ask for? And finally, any tips for...

    I have two cookie exchanges this year - each one will require and return 5 dozen cookies. I'm making gingerbread men. I used the recipe last year for ginger snaps, which were excellent, but this year I'm feeling a little more adventurous! After the cookie exchange, I will have 10 gifts of a...
  9. Scrapbooking & Paper Crafts
    I love to stay organized and I have a large shoe box of photos that I need help organizing. I have the photos from when I was a baby all the way up through now as an adult.

    Since our home is really small we have struggled with creating homes for our furniture. Our living room is is not only our family room but also our dining room and home office.

    and I have coupons to allow me to get 20 more. We do eat a lot of pasta, so this is good. I had won an auction on ebay for 20 coupons for $.50 off 2 boxes of Barilla pasta and my store doubles. So I paid $.50 a box for the pasta. I think this is a very good deal and am excited! I will have...

    You know those boxes that you get on the shelf that have vegetable, chicken, or beef stock and broth. If you rinse them out well then are they reusable or is there any specific reason I shouldn't reuse them? Thanks so much in advance, I figured I'd use them for my own stock I make at home :)
