  5. Question and Answer
    One day I saw a post on one of the forums (I think) about Wal Mart having a weekly store special going on and that Bananas were 39 cents per pound and another item that was really cheap. I can't remember where I saw it and I can't figure out how to do one search of all the forums to find it...

  7. Education
    Are there any GREAT and Active homeschool forums out there, that you visit? As my children have become older, I find I am spending less and less time in the home school community and I miss the fellowship, sharing of ideas and information which was such a big part of our early years... So I am...
  8. Question and Answer
    Is there a way to filter out the forums I don't want to see and keep a list of only those I'm interested in? I've looked but can't seem to find anything.

    I was busy all weekend and then I noticed that the Haven and support forums were gone--or is it just that I can't find them?

    and I'm glad to see this. I've started changing my families lives 4 weeks ago when I started us all on Weight Watchers and I've completely changed the way I'm cooking and eating. So far I've not had one day of feeling hungry or deprived. As of this morning I've lost 17 pounds. My son has lost...

    I just had a realization... it seems that the majority of posters here are female, no? Okay, I know I may be a little slow on the uptake - especially when I'm in "research" mode. :newbie: So my inner scientist is curious. Just what are the gender ratios here on Frugal Village Forums? Would...

    I've tried searching for an old post, but the search function searches the internet instead of the forums themselves. The dropdown box under search says search forums, but that doesn't work. Any advice?

    With the new year coming soon, many of our goals are revolving around weight loss. Since I'm pretty busy and unable to put a lot of work into, I thought villagers might be happy to have it reopened here. :) I'll definitely be contributing to this section in the upcoming year.

    Yup, I'm being nosy again! I've benefited so much from using the forums here, so I'm curious what everyone else has to say on the subject. Here's a few of my top picks. 1. Dump Cake, my DH is totally hog-wild over this. 2. Coupon swapping, love it love it. 3. Learning how to actually get one...
