  1. Secondhand Shopping
    When we were in Yellowstone last year, we saw a national parks edition Monopoly game and almost bought it. We came to our senses just in time. The dang thing was about $40, which is crazy for a Monopoly game even if it's a special edition. So today we were at a rummage sale, and of course by...
  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    DH and I purchased the home in mid-January. It's 938 sq/ft but 95% of it is finished. The old house was 1186 sq/ft but only 70% of it was finished. The 1186 was counting two floors and not the basement. The 938 is counting two levels and not the other two. One house was a two-story and the other...
  3. Financial hardship
    We've gotten to the point that we cannot make it anymore. When I first joined in 2006 we were making small strides paying down our debt and building some savings. DH's last pay increase was in 2006, in 2007 they cut pay raises, in 2008 they cut hours, in 2009 & 2010 they increased employee...
  4. Homesteading and gardening
    I got a community garden plot - YAY! It will get full sun. So I want to grow cantaloupe and watermelon. I have no idea how many plants to plant. Is it like pumpkins where you typically want only 1 per plant? Thanks! I need to get my seeds started.

  8. General Chat
    My DH says that I expect too much. This may come over as being emotional but tears are running down my face as I type this - it is hard for me. Maybe I am just getting old and can't accept change. Please be the judge - tell me anything you think (nicely). Maybe you can tell me how you have...
  9. Financial hardship
    I filled out an Section 8 voucher application almost 3 years ago. I got a letter today that says i'm at the top of the list and need to make an appointment with 2 weeks to start paperwork. In my area you can rent decent houses in nice neighborhoods with better schools with section 8 vouchers...

  13. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    The kids and I really enjoy our volunteer work and love being able to bless people. We have however come to realize that the people we work with are in one of 2 camps. Either they are the kind of people who appreciate a hand up and help to get them through a rough spot or they are the kind of...
