    The jeans that broke in this post http://www.frugalvillage.com/forums/general-chat/146120-i-found-disadvantage-my-minimalist-wardrobe.html I fixed. I just thought about how to make the zipper come back together and work. Decide to experiment to see if it worked. What did I have to lose...
  2. Sewing
    So I have been without my sewing machine for several months now. It has been hard. I want to fix something or make something and think "oops can't" Only fellow sewers could understand the feeling. The base plate had broke ( also part of the bobbin maker) so the machine wouldn't work without...

    I have been going back and forth between my husbands computer (which he has graciously lent me until mine is fixed) and mine today trying to get this darned thing fixed. I have been working on it (on and off, while taking care of the kiddos, of course) since around 10 this morning. So far I have...

    Son was in a panic Wednesday after school. "My Cello is broken mom we have to go to the music store to try and get it fixed." He had specific instructions from this teacher, including not waiting. It rattled not a good sign. Cellos don't rattle. I see $ signs. I remember how much money my...
  5. Success Stories
    I've always been frugal-ish. I've always been a bit stockpile-ish. DH is supportive to the point of lunacy every time I want to try something new. (with the notable exception of cheap gasoline) I try to work as hard at making the ends meet as he does to make the $tring. And we do OK. No...

    Yay!!! I took it apart because it wouldn't run and I didn't have money for repair bills. I messed around with the motor and the insides, cleaned it all out, think I had a loose wire, oiled it and messed with a bunch of other adjustments and now it's working! I've made a set of curtains for my...

    we got the maintenance guy to fix the a/c and even though he wasnt supposed to he fixed the wiring in the basement so we could plug in the deep freezer. we think that either there was a different a/c unit in the wall or they switched a 220 with a 112 plug (wire??? not into electrical stuff so i...

    I think my biggest pet peeve in organization is the wires that seem to be spread out all over this house. I think in this day of technology, I can't be the only one that feels this way. Yesterday, I shoved my phone and cell phone into a picnic basket and fed the wires out the back. Now...
  11. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Ok, so we realized last month we should have quite abit of extra money left over. We found the leak. Now the dh is on board, he admitted to it, he is a major source of the leakage. The other part(dummy that I am) wasn't a leak, it was my snowball payment..lol. OOOPS. So anyway, it's only the...

  14. Homesteading and gardening
    I'm so excited that we finally fixed the pump in the well. It turns out that we had not only a pipe collapse but the housing on the well cracked. Well, no wonder we weren't getting any water. This is the irrigation water well. It makes a big difference in what we grow. The city water is just too...
  15. Pets
    So, when I moved in with my boyfriend, I also adopted his 3 cats. One of which is Jessie. He's 13 years old and had serious digestive issues. He would throw up food every single day. Then when you would feed him again he'd binge because he was so hungry. After a month of this, I decided to...

    I am so excited. I fixed my turn signal light myself instead of taking it to my machanic. My son noticed my turn signal wasn't working yesterday so when I got up this morning I went to the van and got out the manual. It pretty much showed how to do it and what size bulb I needed. I went to...

    I brought my van into my mechanic ( have been going to him for 10 years) for an oil change. He did the oil change and fixed a hole in my radiator for free. He must have been in a good mood or something. I love free!

    So if you've kept up with the Adventures of Ry and I....I took Ry to the vet and was so worried that there would be an incident or God only knows what after the last incident with the last vet. Well -- but this vet listened to me and even agreed with me about letting me be with him while he got...

    What kind of mortgage do you have? Fixed at what rate? Adjustable (ARM) what kind, what is your current interest rate and when does it adjust? How long of a loan term? How many more years to go?
