  2. Secondhand Shopping
    I did great! Found some things I was looking for and some I didn't know I was looking for. :P I got a two-gallon jar I've wanted for $2. I have two already, one for AP flour and one for bread flour. Now I finally have one for wheat flour. All three are different, which I like, so I'll know...

    I don't know what's going on, but I'm feeling like I'm in a vortex of breaking things... In the last week ... ~ my serger broke - $80 fix. ~ the boarder brought to our attention her mini fridge is not working and never has - DH is in negotiations with the manufacturer as it's been over a month...

    Well I have to find my motivation to be frugal ASAP. I started out the year really good and then my dad got sick and passed away in early January. Haven't been able to get back on the train fully. Lots to go through and lots to do with his estate. Well a few days ago I got notification that...
  6. Money challenges
    The challenge is to find a new way to save money or make money to add to your debt payments. A month ago I decided to apply for a line of credit because those are usually lower then credit cards interest rates. I was approved at 8% compared to my Visa's 11%. So I transfered the ballance from...

    Been busy sorting for the toss challenge :) and I came across a $200 gift certificate for nfl.com that we received almost 3 years ago when we bought our tv. Went to their site (boy their stuff is expensive) and ordered a tailgating table that doubles as a ping pong table and a camping folding...
  9. Secondhand Shopping
    I have been on the look out for t shirts/ shirts for summer. I need longer shirts. They seem hard to find. Yesterday at Goodwill in the display area, not the racks. I found a brand new with tags t shirt and it even still had a factory sticker that says "New Longer Length". It was in my size...
  10. Question and Answer
    Had to get bloodwork done today at the hospital. Thought I would ask if it was possible to find out my blood type. Apparently with all the bloodwork that has been done it is impossible to know what my blood type is unless I have had major surgery or a baby. This is what they told me in the...
  11. Money challenges
    This is a personal challenge to myself, but if anyone wants to join in, feel free! For us, it seems like money just goes out the window in December. There's Christmas of course, and then we have to fill the oil tank, and we usually eat out too much, and.... well, I plan for December to be a...

    The dentist I have, I've been seeing for about three years. He's a bit rough and gruff exterior, yet recognizes me in the grocery and says 'hi'. His work is good, but still a bit rough. DH is filling out insurace forms for me for dental (cause I'm not covered). Problem is, my dentist does not...
  13. Secondhand Shopping
    I found a great site that coordinates blogs showing items that have been repurposed from secondhand places, from dumpsters or from roadside collections. These are great ideas especially if, like me, you do not have a great imagination of what could be done with these treasures...

  18. Homesteading and gardening
    I posted on Freecycle I was looking for pails. I got one contact, they said they had 1 pail, but a couple garden pots. So I said sure! When I got there he'd finished sorting, I left with 2 large ceramic pots, 30 seed starter pots(4"), 2 full bags of compost, 2 full bags of 'sea soil'. several...

    I have a dd that doesn't move alot. And I'm doing all I can to keep her going. She is like mom, quite content to relax...:shrug2: Anyways, I asked her about bikes. She has a mountain bike, but doesn't like it, as it never fails, she'll have the chain fall off. SO, I was on a mission to find a...

    We have a roll top desk with 1,000 cubbies that is just a catch all for every bit of paper and junk in the house. I'd like to get rid of it and find a clean and organized substitute (less surfaces for junk to collect). I'm in love with the pottery barn system with all the matching pieces and...
