  1. Hobbies
    I am in charge of the craft portion of our next family girls' weekend. We have about a dozen women, ages range from 30s to 70s. Some are crafty, some are not crafty at all, and some eyes are starting to go - so it has to be simple enough for everyone. Not too simple though, I don't want...
  2. Creative Cooking
    We are having a chili cook-off at work on the first day of Autumn as lunch for everyone here. Staff will bring in crockpots of chili to be judged and then served up for lunch. The committee I'm on will supply the crackers, desserts ect. I volunteered for cookies, which I would prefer to do...
  3. Dave Ramsey
    In Aug 2008 my total debt was $57,500. Since then I am paying down all my debts. In Jan 2011 I read Dave Ramsey's book for the first time and decided to follow it. Step 1: Completed this in 14 days. It was just the matter of paying only the minimum amount to everybody and save the rest. Step...

  5. Meal planning
    We will be in 2 houses (10 in each house) for 7 nights. We have to cook for everyone for 1 or 2 days each family. What suggestions do you have for a big group that is relatively easy, quick to fix and doesn't cost a lot? Ages 1, 2, 2.5, 3, 3, 9, 9, 10, 12, 16 and the rest adults. If stuff is...
  6. Needle Arts
    I just joined a knitting group with my mother 2 weeks ago. We meet at the library on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month. I am definitely the least experienced, and while everyone is really nice (so far, have only been to 1 meeting LOL), it's still pretty intimidating. So does anyone else...
  7. Find Your Kith
    I would like to start a support group for parents or other relatives of Down Syndrome children. My name is Debra and I am the proud momma of a 3yr old Down Syndrome little boy named Zachary. Zachary is like any other 3 yr old boy..he loves to get in trouble:) Loves to be outside...likes...
  8. General Chat
    I am kind of nervous and excited..... weird. It feels like the first day of school.... I am not usually so easily rattled. But I think I am putting high expectations on this group. I hope I can find some soul mates, family and friends just don't want to talk to me about diabetes because they...

    Hi, Just wondering if you guys have thought about group buying to save money? I've heard of smaller groups buying things in bulk. Have you tried this...does it make sense? Thanks!!

  11. Health and beauty
    I have a Interstitial Cystitis and there are many support groups in the US, but there isn't one in my area. My doctor has mentioned a few times that I should consider starting a support group in my area and I am seriously considering it now. I have made initial contact with some national...
  12. General Chat
    Just added one for all of us chicken owners. Come on over and say hello. :) If you know of someone in FV who has chickens, let me know, and I'll send them an invite. I tried to invite everyone I could remember, but I am sure I missed a few! :D
  13. Financial hardship
    http://www.frugalvillage.com/forums/group.php?groupid=15 I've created a group for members that are experiencing job loss.
  14. Health and beauty
    I thought there was something like this before, but couldn't find it. Would anyone be interested in doing a goup check in on the same day every week? You wouldn't have to put your weight, just what you lost or gained and how your week was. We could start a new "check in" thread every week on...
  15. Financial hardship
    AnnK mentioned an out of work support group. I wondered who in our village is out of work or their loved one is out of work and how maybe how have you changed your habits or tips to help others. I'll start my DH closed his business in late June. He has been working with me cleaning houses...
  16. General Chat
    Has anyone done this? We were going to operate it through the church, but our minister doesn't want us to store anything there. We've decided to meet there to knit, and possibly do other smallish handwork we can carry with us. But any sewing will be done in one of our homes and will operate...
  17. Education
    They are awesome, secular and active. We went their monthly meeting today. It was just unstructured play for the kids while the mom's talked about upcoming events & such. But it was GREAT! The younger two made tons of friends and came home with phone numbers. Even my 14yo made a friend and is...

    A few people have asked me about the Gleaner Group, and I think I have sent out individual emails to people explaining, but for the rest of you who may be wondering~ a Gleaner Group is a group of people who go out to the local farms in their area and 'glean' what is left of the farmers crop for...
  19. Leisure & Media Arts
    I'm curious what you all think of this. Oprah Winfrey made a decision at the beginning of the presidential campaign that she was going to NOT interview any of the candidates on her show. Now, a Womens Republican Group in Florida is calling for a large-scale boycott of the Oprah Winfrey show...
  20. General Chat
    Some of you asked what a Gleaner Group is, so thought I'd explain it... At the local food bank, there are about a dozen people who go out to the farms, ranches, etc. and 'Glean' what is left in the fields, for FREE, with this exception: 10% of what you pick goes to the FOOD BANK, 40% of it you...
