  1. Lifestyle challenges
    We are full of challenges here at FV. Here's a new twist for you... I challenge you to do something nice for someone else each and every day. Your recipient can be a person, animal or even a plant if you wish. But the gesture needs to be from nothing that you personally would gain from...
  2. Christmas
    Ughh, just got the dreaded email from DH's brother trying to get us to "go in" on an expensive gift for their mom. NO, THANK YOU!!!! That has got to be my biggest holiday pet peeve. Well, that and when people tell me 'I can't afford to buy you anything, so don't buy me anything.' Or my mom...

    I'm tired of just giving the minimum amount our church requires... I want to do more... what are some (inexpensive) ways that I can give to charity (and feel like I am making even a small difference) while in BS2? I do volunteer at a horse farm for special needs kids, but I feel like it doesn't...

    After reading that thread about frugal vs cheap, it's got me thinking about the birthday gift DD1 (age 7) is giving tomorrow at a boy's birthday party. DH has a stash of clearance-priced gifts in our computer room closet. He came up with three action figures (all bixed separately) including...

    Question # 1 I send my mom $100 every month to help out with her living expenses. She is on disability and is unable to work. My bother and sister help out too. She depends on the money so I am not willing to "cut" this as an extra from my budget. My question is where should it go? I am...
  7. Frugal Living
    We moved in on January 15th and while we did spend the first few days eating take-out (Wok Box, Harvey's, etc.), we haven't done it ever since. Even our trips to the store to pick up supplies has dwindled in occurrence. I think for us, it's been a combination of location and fixing the menu at...

  12. Pets
    Do you give your pets baths or send them to a groomer? I've never had to bathe my cat, glad for that, she'd rip me to shreds. Dog gets a bath in a plastic kiddie pool in warmer weather and in a shower we have in the basement in colder weather. Going to be warm tomorrow, guess where Riley...

    So this all started because my DD7 is so upset about the oil spill that she wants to do something so we went looking and found IBRRC: Adopt-a-Bird program She agreed to do extra stuff around the house until she had earned half to adopt the baby duckling and I would give her the other half. (I...
  14. Dave Ramsey
    My wife and I went to a spaghetti dinner to support a charitable organization today. Now I'm trying to decide whether to enter this in my spending spreadsheet as giving or dining-out. What do you think about whether to classify these sorts of events as giving or as dining out luxury?

    ~ This morning while in the shower rinsing the shampoo out of my hair I heard a wet smack sound down around my feet. I looked down to discover that one of the tiles had fallen off the wall! I then looked at the wall and a bunch of them are starting to pop out on the edges. We knew it was going...

    Bare Books I stumbled across this site and thought i should share it with my fellow gift makers. this site sells blank board books, regular books, comic books, board games (with pieces and blank money and game cards) its seems like you can really do some customized cheap gifts they do have min...
  17. Stockpiling
    Just wondering how many of us donate or give away stockpile items, either occasionally or on a regular basis? I don't have a big stockpile yet, but I have enough of some things that I have been able to share with my family to help them out. My mom is disabled and constantly worrying about where...

    If so, what are you giving out? I will only have two trick or treaters and those are the children of my boss. They stop by every year. I have them a little baggie of candy with a small pack of M&M's, a bite sized Milky Way bar, a snack sized bag of Teddy Grahams and some gum. Then I got the...
