    Help!!! First...let's establish the old one is not worth fixing (+ the fact that I hate it) I really do not want a front loader, for reasons of my own that I am tired of explaining (and defending) to everyone! I'm not as concerned about price as I am with function and value. Anyone??? I...
  2. Health challenges
    Same as last year folks, I'm declaring war on declining health :fence: through better choices. It's 1:19 am January 1st. So far, so good.

    My baby girl's BD is fast approaching, she'll be 28. (eek, dear GOD how did that happen??). she's fighting the same financial battles as i am (and the rest of the planet) and our gift exchanges at christmas have become much more based on meeting needs rather than wants. i asked what she might...
  4. Health challenges
    It's part of the new year ritual – an annual attempt to start afresh and turn over a new leaf. But making resolutions is a near pointless exercise, psychologists say. We break them, become dispirited in the process and finally more despondent than we were before. 88 Percent of New Years...

    Just what can one person do to help make an impact on the world? I'd be fooling myself if I thought that my tiny choices really made a difference.....but what if everyone made tiny choices? You don't have to drive a hybrid to "save the world" (although I'd love to!) - lots of small things make...
  6. Lifestyle challenges
    :cheergrl: I was recently reminded how easy it is to focus on the negative, the missing, the imperfections in our lives. Times are challenging enough on many fronts; my challenge is to find the good, the abundance and what is right and celebrate!! :cheergrl:

    Hi, I need some help to pick out some good frying pans. Right now I have cast iron but I hate cleaning them and they are soooo heavy. My pans are seasoned but when I use them and they get whatever (cheese etc) on them I have to wash them with dish soap. Then I dry them and coat them with...

    This morning it was 2 degrees outside when I woke up. When it’s that cold outside, most people tend to want a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate to warm them up. However, I made myself an iced latte this morning. Most people think I’m crazy for drinking iced coffee when it’s hardly holding a...
  11. Question and Answer
    My question is whether those of us who are choosing to live frugally feel that they have to educate others? I find myself explaining to others, for example, that going out to eat lunch with them is not in my budget. :sigh: On the other hand, I have wonderful friends who understand me and my...

    All of these are legitimate companies that didn't spend quite enough time considering how their online names might appear ... and be misread. These are not made up. Check them out yourself! 1. "Who Represents" is where you can find the name of the agent that represents any celebrity...

    I picked out cool paint colors at Sherwin-Williams online today! Now all I have to do is go by the store and have them mix them up for me. I hope to paint Memorial Day Weekend, and finish up the following weekend. I know I can do it, I just have to get everyone out of my way first! DD has a...
  15. Financial hardship
    Basically, I have lived frugally all my life, except I decided to leave the states and come to the UK for school, leaving me living in a very expensive country (and expensive city!) with debts of about $20,000 for school. I had a temporary job that was paying my bills, but that job is over now...

    Hey everyone, I'd like your input. This spring I've been looking for a job in my field (zookeeping) and have so far had no luck. I've had a couple of interviews, but no job offers. This summer I'm planning on beginning the process to get my fiance (a german) a visa so that he can come here...

    I am starting this morning off feeling pretty down about our state of finances and choices we are having to make. I checked my balance this morning and we have $50 to make it between now and next Friday. I really thought that six weeks ago when I started trying to get a handle on everything that...
