    Wondering if anyone has tried Mturk? I've done research and it looks legit, but wondering if it is worth the time. Basically, I want to hear from anyone who's tried it to see what their experience was and if they actually got paid. I'm on maternity leave and returning in Feb 2 days a week...

    This morning I had computer generated manufacturer's coupons and the cashier tried to refuse them. I insisted she call for a manager. The manager said they didn't take them from a computer, they had to be from a newspaper. I told her she was wrong. She started scanning the coupons and when I...

  5. Question and Answer
    Dh and I were considering buying 1/4 cow and stocking up the beef in our deep freeze. Is this really one of the best ways to get quality beef at a cheap price? Anyone willing to share their experience with this? I know where to find ranchers advertising this in our area, but how do you know...

    Hi Everyone, DH needs two hip replacements and will be getting the first one this week. The doctor says he'll be off from work for 2 to 3 months each time. He has never been on short term disability before and so we do not know what to expect. He'll only get 80% of his base pay, and they will...

  9. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I was just wondering what people who bought houses this year had to deal with as far as the First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit goes. We filed amended returns and I just got a thing in the mail today that says they need further proof we are first time homebuyers, citing mortgage interest reported...

    One Way To Find Out When contemplating whether to do something or not, a plucky voice in our heads may say, "You never know until you try." This is time-honored wisdom that encourages us to be game rather than to hold back. It reminds us that it is only through experience that we learn about...

    Have you bought from them? Pawned items? I haven't been inside one in years, but when I lived in NY, they had beautiful discounted jewelry. Sad that someone else pawned them, but a good opportunity for someone looking for jewelry. I'm sure pawn shops are hopping now.
  12. Kitchen Basics
    Over the weekend I purchased a crock pot, found a recipe on recipezaar that sounded good, went grocery shopping, and had every intention of cooking on Saturday. It didn't happen. Today, I finally took the plunge and am making some beef stroganoff. About 15 minutes ago I got everything prepped...

    In between rain showers, I took Hoodie for a walk and checked on how things were doing. It looks like I slowed the caterpillars down. I am sure I suffer some damage but as long as it is not too much I will be happy. The rhubarb and asparagus is doing well. The raspberries and blueberries are...

    I have always heard people say they plan meals around what is on sale. I couldn't figure out how people saved money doing this. We have two grocery stores that have sale ads. One big chain and one smaller more local chain ( regional maybe?) The big chain was the one ad I usually looked at to...
  17. Question and Answer
    selling gold or silver? I've seen those ads on TV where you send in your old items and they send you a check. It sounds like a scam to me, but I could be wrong. I ask because we have a small number of gold and sterling items that are serving no useful purpose. My parents (children of the...

  19. Secondhand Shopping
    My oldest dd hasn't been able to find her MCR t-shirt for MONTHS. She's looked everywhere. I don't have it, her sister swears she doesn't have it, etc. Still can't find it. It was a rather expensive t-shirt as she had to buy it online to find the one she wanted as they weren't sold around here...
