  1. Coupons
    Hi! This is one of my first posts, so if it is in the wrong place, feel free to move it. I have been ordering my glasses and DH's glasses online for about two years now, and it seems there are TONS or promos going on right now that I think FV'ers could take advantage of. I have listed the...
  2. Coupons
    Does anyone know if there is someone out there that has a spreadsheet or list of some type that lists all the current coupons in alpha order and then has a column where it comes from and of course the coupon info? and I'm not looking for the ones where you have to look up each coupon to see if...
  3. Preparedness and Survival
    The extreme hyperinflation of food prices and the government budget issues in the US have me really nervous right now. Add to that the unease in the Middle East and it makes me think we could be looking at some very tough times ahead. I'm stockpiling the food and getting ready to garden. I'm...
  4. Dave Ramsey
    Back in 2005, my first year after grad school, I was in serious credit card trouble that had been building for a long time, with multiple accounts going to collections and $15,000 in debt. I made a budget for the first time in my life, moved in with my parents when the lease on my apartment ran...
  5. Home and family challenges
    I'm going to put this up for myself,as last year. Things fell apart fairly quickly for me, but having the challenge here did help keep me at it for a bit. Likewise with the "fling things" goal. Because I have SOoooo much stuff, I'll figure that the fling things is a part of this. I felt really...

  7. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I was reading in another thread and thought more and more about this. Dave Ramsey suggests $1000 as a baby EF while paying off debt. Do you think in our current economy and with todays prices that the $1000 EF is enough? Why or why not? I thought it was a few years back when we were paying...
  8. Quilting
    I have one that I'm handquilting, one that I'm making out of 30 repro fabrics (string quilt) and one that the blocks are finished and waiting to be sewn together. Depends on my mood which one I work on. Tonight I'll work on the hand quilting. It's called Garden Friends...

    I just turned 60 this month. And I've been thinking about this new decade that I am entering and comparing it to my last decade of being 50. What shape am I in? How about you? How would you compare who you were in your last decade with who you are now? Here's what I am mulling over: 1...
  10. Success Stories
    Does anyone ever feel like the people around them make you feel worse about your struggles with debt and trying to be frugal? For example, a couple people at my job know i'm paying off a big load of debt and I am on a tight budget because my snowball is big and I'm trying to put everything I can...

  12. Sewing
    What are you working on these days? I made an undershirt for Lauren yesterday. Now that I know that the pattern works for her, I will be making several more. I really need to make fall/winter pj's for Kathryn & Lauren, and I still have a sock monkey waiting to be finished as well as another...

  17. Home Environment
    When I walk past my sewing room... uggh. I can't take it! It's painted a pale pretty yellow with some pretty white shears dangling. But it's Soooooo depressing! I try to organize it, I really do. And!! I'm such an organized person. So, I don't understand why I'm having this problem. I...
  18. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Hello everyone, I've been reading posts here for a long time and decided to register and post my story. My debt started around 2001-2002. I had a failed marriage which spun me into a downward spiral of debt. I was behind on most of my cc's and had a car loan on top of it. My total debt was...
