  2. Frugal Living
    I had a son in August and we moved to a different house to get him in the right schools, so not only has our mortgage doubled, but we pay day care costs. We aren't struggling. Everything can be paid. But, I am now trying to save much more than I used to. I have no clue what college is going...
  3. Stay at home moms
    I have been retired for nearly a year now and I am loving it, Sometimes, I just feel frumpy!! I don't care for doing my hair and makeup and dressing up and to be honest here, some of the crap I do all day would ruin the effort if I did make it!! Not only that but, we take A LOT of pictures and...

    DH and I have been on the frugal bandwagon since May.

Let your spray cleaner sit for a minute or two to work into the soil before wiping or scrubbing off. Less effort, because by letting the cleaner penetrate the soap scum, grease or other dirt, you...
  8. Education
    Ok here it is in as nutshell a form as I can make it. This is how we did it all except for the first year. KISS principle RULES: You've heard my mantra for the laundry, dishes and garbage removal (a load a day keeps the doctor away! or the psychiatrist at bay! -- however you want to phrase it)...
  9. Home Environment
    When I've kept up the shiny finish on my floors (sealent then future acrylic floor polish) they are easier to keep clean. the dirt doesn't dig itself down into the cuts and scratches and set up permanent housekeeping. When I mop, the dirt slithers right out with not so much cracks and crannies...
  10. Education
    get teaching audio and video tapes and use them for all ages. I used and enjoyed Diana Waring's What in the World is Going on here world history volumes 1 and 2 thru out our highschool at home years. I'd pop the tapes in whenever we had a long car trip ahead. Very fine tapes. For younger kids...
