    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. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    We have been waiting, waiting, waiting on getting paid for contract work, and now it's coming in! A bit over $6,000 is what we are getting in a few days, and I don't know what to do with it. We have steadier payments coming in for at least 2 more months, so I am not expecting this to be another...

    I've had an Amish cookbook for years but pulled it out yesterday to read. I have always thought the Amish were very self reliant, didn't depend on the "English" for anything if they can make it themselves. I noticed in MANY recipes they called for canned items, like soups, canned fruit, instant...

  7. Relationships

    I admit it; I'm confused. Obama said that in April we will start seeing more money in our paychecks. So.... is it a tax cut or a tax credit? I've been reading news reports and listening to news, and they are using both terms. Can this be right? Can someone explain this in very simple...
  9. Christmas
    I recently retired and one of my goals is to bargain Christmas shop. I am thnking ahead and getting ideas. I have this opinion that prices go up at Christmas time. The problem is when I find something I want to purchase, the return policies don't extend that far out. What if it does not work...
  10. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    :relieved: That felt good! Our only 'big debt' is the mortgage and my car. The mortgage and condo fees are paid automatically so we usually don't include that in our budget. Our only other bills are the 'normal' monthly bills, utilities, insurance, etc. No evil CC. Learned that lesson a while...

    I put a post on here this afternoon about the homemade laundry detergent, and what the poison control told me and now it's gone.
  13. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Starting to think that rather than save for a car right now I should be saving up my emergency fund, once I get there where I want it, then I'll save for a car & will be able to save more at that time for it. If worst comes to worse and I need one before its saved I would have my EF anyway to...

    Dh and I have been discussing the increase of home heating oil. It is up over $4.00 a gallon here. Although our boiler is old it is efficient according to our service technician. We also use oil to heat our hot water. I was able to lower our consumption down to around 450 gallons for the...

    Am I the only once confused by deligates and several other voting rules? The way each state has their own rules just compounds my confusion LOL. I know there are good reasons these rules are in place but Im still lost. Also, did we learn this in school and I just forgot it all?:read:
  18. Kitchen Basics
    I'm trying a new recipe which calls for: "12 ounces sharp cheddar, shredded" I'm confused. I know that depending on whether the cheese is in shredded, crumbled, or block form, the measurements can vary. For example, an 8 oz. pack of shredded cheese is labeled as containing 2 cups. But a 32...

    Ok, not even sure where to start this... I've got some various options for life and I haven't a clue what to do?? And I feel like everyone (including myself) is pulling me in a million different directions. I'm in a job where I like the people, but I'm not wild about the job itself. Now, in...
