    This morning while flinging more stuff for a challenge I found another gift card that got stuffed out of sight. I guess out of sight, out of mind, really does mean something. Found a $50 Visa gift card, tucked in a box...how it ended up in that box is anyone's guess...but, I sure am happy I...

    I am a hairdresser living in a small town. I moved back here (home) 2 1/2 years ago and have slowly been building up my clientele.

    Where are you finding your school supplies? Any good deals? Walmart in the past we found was the best place to get supplies. This year I find their selection small and prices higher. We have found the drug store and the local grocery store to have the best price on school supplies so far. Our...

  10. Question and Answer
    I'm diabetic and having problems with my feet. I have a size 10-11W foot in womens (or 9-1/2 to 10W in mens). I am looking for a cheap, reasonably priced source for shoes. I think my best bet would be for lace-up type ankle boots or oxford type shoes rather than slide-in or step-in type...

    Ok, I give up. I'm surely overlooking something very obvious, but how do I search for albums by a certain owner? Typing the owner in search doesn't work. Please someone help the techno challenged.

    I been keeping an eye out for a buy on coffee so I can stock up . Current sale at Sav a Lot this week, is Chase & Sanborn at $ 3 for a 23 oz can. I had to look at the ad twice and then get out the calculater. This is not a normal size can for this area. We usually have 33-35 oz ones, or about...

    Hi FV! We're re-doing the kid's bedrooms, and this is the set that my 17 YO girl picked out (see link below). Apparently check patterns are very in this year because she and her friends oohed and aahed over it. OK, I gave in because if she must, she must and you're only 17 once, right? But...

    2010 is the year that we cut back a lot more than we did before. This year, it's the cell phone contracts and the home phone (we never did cancel it, just decided to cut it back to the basic package), along with my gym membership. We're also looking into cutting back on the food budget and...

    Not sure if this is where to post but it seemed like the best place. I stopped going to church and believing in God long ago. I had a traumatic childhood lots of abuse, the death of my brother and my first suicide attempt when I was 11 years old. I didn't feel like he was there for me or that I...
