  1. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I'm having that right now. Well, part of it might be indigestion, but the budget certainly was at the forefront of my thoughts. I sent out an email to the guy who set us up with mortgage protection on the house and now I'm waiting to hear back from him about it. I'll be calling the cable...

    After being raised a carnivore (no really, my family didn't even always have side dishes, but we always had meat) and then sticking to those ways through my adult years thus far, I'm taking the leap of faith into vegetarianism. Well, to throw out another label, the lacto-ovo type with milk and...
  3. Utilities
    We were randomly without internet for over a day earlier this week, they fixed it remotely somehow, without coming here. I asked, when speaking to tech support, if we would be credited on our bill for the #of days it was down, if it was significant, they said 'oh yes, customer support will do...

  7. Meal planning
    I'm due in about 2 weeks (same days as Nuisance!) and am wondering what to have on hand in the fridge for very quick and easy meals or snacks that we can just eat without fuss when we have a chance.

    Due to a dramatic change in our financial situation and the fact that we are moving from a house to a one bedroom granny suite. We are having to give away our two cats who are 8 and our rabbit. We are moving into my moms granny suite and she said we could bring our dog. Whom my DD calls her...
  9. Pregnancy
    For school that is! My due date is Dec 6th, but my ob says I'm measuring a bit big and I'm dialated to 2cm. She doesn't think I'll make it that long. I knew before I started the semester that I would deliver before it was over, but I was hoping to make it till my due date, take a week or two...
  10. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Every bill comes due for me at the same time of the month, within the first week or so. We only get 2 paychecks a month, so it's kind of annoying that everything comes out of the first paycheck. If I were smart, I'd save the money from one paycheck to carryover to the other... but that so...

    Has anyone ever called the cell phone or utilities to have them switch the due dates? DH retired and I am trying to get a once a month budget going with his pension check. We do our banking online and I like to set things to "go" when they are due(actually 2 days prior to due date). If I could...

    No taxes due for some investors It's true. The capital gains rate for some taxpayers is now zero. But the key word is "some." Are you eligible for this tax break?

    Past due: Your savings If you think of a contribution to your savings as a 'bill' that you pay every month along with your other expenses, you'll be a much better saver with a much brighter future.

    Thought this was interesting, in conjunction with Warramra's link to the article on increasing food staple prices. Things are definitely changing in the economy, whether the government experts want to admit it or not.
