  3. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    So you guys might have read the thread that I started aways back about a house in my hometown that I might want to buy. Doesn't look like that's going to happen, but I'm thinking that's probably for the best. Since we decided to put in an offer on that house, I've been looking around at some of...
  4. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Verizon was charging us $40 more than they were supposed to, so after several disconnects (sigh), I finally got a rep who was REALLY cool about it, knew his stuff, etc. I asked for the $40 credit on the past two bills, which are the ones who were wrong. He said he couldn't do it. I got ticked...

    So I was walking past a city bus today, and the wheel chair ramp was unfolding, and it hit my left hand across the back of my hand. My hand is really bruised, and I have apparently bruised the vein, so that any pressure involving the ligaments is really painful. Everyone I know is telling me...

  7. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    It's no wonder the banks are in trouble if this is the level of their mathematical abilities. A couple of years ago I got the Amazon card to get the $30 sign up inducement, and found it was a Chase card. I already had a Chase card that I use for most daily expenses because it gives me 5% cash...
  8. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I had a real dumb moment and missed the new interest rate, and I have a high balance on this card. If I go by balances, I'll end up paying nearly $3000 more in interest. However, if I pay it first, I'd save that $3000. It doesn't lengthen or shorten the amount time paid, we're looking at...

    So you did talk to your dh about it and THEN you find out you were right on the money--literally? My dh is the parts manager at the local chevy dealership. HE has a company shirt uniform he buys himself in assorted colors--a button down dress shirt and he wears wranger dress pants in assorted...

    Will our kids be dumb and broke? You don't have to be a parent to know that this country has a giant spending problem -- and that we must teach the next generation to do better. But how?

    Why acting bearish is a dumb move If the thought of opening up your mutual statement makes you squeamish or if you avert your eyes whenever CNBC comes on at the gym, it's understandable. This has been one ferocious stock market. Not only has Wall Street been flirting with a bear market -...

    I'm going to make bread. I want to use my mixer. I put the ingredients in the mixer, with bread hook. Do I then have to knead the dough when it is done, or does the bread hook do that for me? The directions for the mixer are very vague. Any help would be most appreciated.
  14. Kitchen Basics
    I have what seems like a dumb question. I have never before made brown rice or eaten it for that matter. Since I am out of white rice, I decided to buy some brown rice instead last night. I cooked some when I got home. I like cold cooked white rice with milk, brown sugar and cinnamon on it...

    Ok let me have it girls.:fpunch: I would just like to add in my defense that I was VERY supportive of my dh and told him I am 100% behind him no matter what he decides to do. His health is bad and his stress worse and I want him to be happy. That said I will prattle on..... My dh is the...

    I need some feedback. As you know we are on-site property managers for a small multi-family property. Well, our housing, and utilities are paid for so, I am trying to find ways to become frugal other than cutting back on utilities. I've gone through all my receipts for the last 6 months...

    *edit I couldn't post links to give you an idea, but they were both at overstock* I had bought a sheet set and quilt set which is a bit of a splurge right now :wink: although I'm sure it'll have me crunched anyway for this month :o but I figured since you sleep in a bed everyday, it's worth it...

    We rarely have occasion to use AC, and we've only had it for 2 years anyway, so I'm pretty new. Seriously, we've probably used it less than 20 days. Here's the question: In the evening, the outside temp drops from whatever-hot down to 60 or 65. The house is still 75 (where we set the air during...

    DD is going into 1st grade. She went to the same school last year. Do I need to go to the school and register her? Or is she automatically registered?
