  1. Christmas
    Yes I would be heart broken if you decided not to give me a gift. If you explained why I would understand but still be heart broken. And yes, I would be heart broken if you ask me not to give a gift to you. Yes there are those of us out here. I love gifts. I love receiving them. I love...
  2. Dave Ramsey
    Well I guess I need to get this off my chest. I am seriously in debt. I have a big spending problem. If this is any indication, I got a credit card with a 6000 dollar limit and literally maxed it out within 2 weeks. Who does that?! So I am in hell of my own making. Right now, I paid my...
  3. Secondhand Shopping
    ~Have you bought anything secondhand that others might find weird or questionable? Here's mine: I bought DD's car seat at the thrift store in 2005. It looked brand new and was only $5. It's held up beautifully! I never see car seats in thrifts anymore. Is it illegal now or something?~

  5. Frugal Living
    I thought it might be fun to see how others "slip-up" now and then. I know I do it, and I am sure others have also. I wouldn't say its always a "bad" thing, what would be bad is if we let a slip-up stop us from jumping right back on the frugal train. I now I love this site for that...
  6. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    So, I thought my husband was bad...but I am the worse. It is time to start paying these bills down. I have officially put my foot down, it will all begin this week. Some ways that we are going to cut back to help get these bills paid off consist of: Turning off the cable and phone (gives us...
  7. General Chat
    I want to hear your deep dark secrets. Mwahahaha. (OMG, cutest smiley ever :pumpkin:) Here's one of mine: When I turned 18, the only real reason that I registered as a Republican was to make my dad mad.
  8. Frugal Living
    Okay, I admit it. I am a Frugal Challenge failure. Halfway the month this is where I stand: Grocery Challenge Goal $250 Spent $248 It is better than I thought. When I first entered my reciepts I forgot I had gotten a new phone card, so I thought I was already $20 over. But with $2...
  9. Frugal Living
    Okay, I think I've discovered a pattern. I shop when I'm bored, or wanting someone to talk to. I tried talking to DD#2 today, but she was in a recluse mode. So I walked to a nearby shopping district and dropped $75 by the time I got home. On tea, on journals, on fabric, on groceries. Sure...
  10. Frugal Living
    1. What do you do that's so beyond the word "frugal" you are almost embarrassed to admit you do it? 2. What do you do that's so not-frugal that it would horrify some frugalites?
  11. Money challenges
    How on earth do you all do it? WHAT am I missing? I spent over $700 this month on groceries (etc.) for two adults, one toddler and one infant (who is on formula). I was shooting for $400. We are not eating steak every night (or ever). We don't guzzle soft drinks (maybe one each, daily). I...

    I went shopping this morning and thought I'd post this here for those who have been questioning/thinking about using coupons. By no stretch of the imagination am I a hard-core coupon user. I don't often hunt down multiple coupons, I don't do multiple coupon trains, I don't buy coupons from...
  13. Frugal Living
    CONFESSIONS OF A FRUGAL SPENDTHRIFT I’ve spent most of my life as a frugal spendthrift. If it was on sale or marked down, I’d buy it and brag on my shopping savvy! The thrill was in the hunt. It didn’t matter if the item was an ugly turtleneck I never wore, I only paid .80 for it. No that...
  14. Quilting
    Great site! And for some reason CJ, I don't see your name on the list!!!:D http://www.quiltaholics.com/confess.htm
  15. FV Neighborhoods
    this is for my secret pal, and i know you know who you are. First i want to start by saying that i have LOVED being your secret pal and that i have had so much fun doing this. I have a small gift for you, but i am afraid it will not be going out into the mail until the end of the week. I am so...
  16. Leisure & Media Arts
    Do you have any tales to tell about library books you have borrowed? The preprimary school just called me. I borrowed a book in March and forgot to return it. LOL oops. No fees, but geesh a tad bit embarrassing. I once lost a library book as child and was scared to death I was on some...
  17. General Chat
    I hate that chewing sound on the water bottle...grrrrrr, so just stop looking at me with those beady eyes. Btw, where's your tail? Sara
