    I started watching TLC's Extreme Couponing. I have used coupons before and had great success(also I was living in bigger city, with a bigger market). Plus the Sunday paper would be available on Saturday night, so I was able to get the jump on the sales on Sunday, bright and early. I was so...
  2. Home Environment
    Lately I feel like I living in an episode of Hoarders - Buried Alive. Those of you who know me will understand how far out of character that is. I'm usually the extreme minimalist; my idea of the perfect decor looks something like this: (yes, that's an empty white space ;)) Now that...

    OMG... Did anyone watch this? It was like watching a train wreck. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, it did.

    Was in Kroger the other day and noticed that they had a new, and very visible, coupon policy taped next to the credit card reader. I laughed and told the cashier I wondered when that was going to happen. She said they just want to keep people from clearing the shelves. Ever since Extreme...

    2K of food for a negative balance put on a gift card? Seriously...who needs 93 bottles of hot sauce or 150 boxes of instant couscous mix in their stockpile just because? I get having stuff stored. But a lot this woman's stuff just seemed to be overkill. 600 packages of candy? I don't know...

    Ok, well it wasn't extreme in the ways of the "Extreme couponing" show is, but for us it was extreme. We don't typically buy more then 30 dollars worth of food at the grocery store because we buy a lot of bulk things at BJs Wholesale and smaller things at Walmart/Target and produce at the local...

    Good Morning America was showing a snippet of a show that is supposed to be on TLC tonight about extreme couponing. People getting $5,000 worth of groceries for $241, etc. I think it's well-balanced, as it talks about the psychological issues of people who need to have 3,000 rolls of toilet...
  10. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I just read a couple of articles on extreme savers that save between 30-60% of their after tax income. I'm just wondering how much are you saving and how do you do it. We manage to save 10% pre-tax in our 401k and $160/month of our after tax income (about 3% after-tax). We also pay an extra...
  11. Just Tips
    OK so First off I am 26 weeks pregnant and this one lives on my bladder. LOL so After my 5th trip to the toilet last night at about 4:00am I had an epiphany. I use cloth rags to clean babys but why not use them instead of TP for ours. Or at least mine. With all the peeing i could save a fortune...

    Did anyone else watch it? It was aaaaaamazing! Calorie restriction dieting, growing new body parts, etc... I was so intrigued. It made me want to find out how to get a new heart. :D

    Let's say we do get into a depression as deep as the last one. You've got a limited budget to buy anything but food, heat for your house, etc. But even that's bare minimum. In the books I've read of the depression and my grandparents/relatives recollections there were those who had absolutely...
  17. Financial hardship
    So as you all know, the move went well. I am happy about that. However, I have had to resort to extreme measures to keep money in the bank and make sure bills are getting paid. And honestly, some bills aren't. At least, not on time anyway. I cashed in the change jar to get DS's hair cut. This...

    Ok you all know I have my 30 yr. reunion coming up next Saturday (the 16th). I would dearly love to lose 5 lbs. before then but as I've been on this 'weightloss journey' for 3 years now and control my eating fairly well (for the most part exceptin' when we're on a trip, ugh) I don't think my...
  19. Kitchen Basics
    Hi folks! As you know, we're moving in about 6-7 weeks. I've started going through my stockpile and packing things that won't be eaten between now and then. I'm trying to plan my meals for the next two months to use as much from our freezer/pantry as possible. I'll inventory the freezer...
