    I only have one line outside, and a bit of room in the house for hanging. I live in canada so a load would take all day to dry out there. I have about 3-4 loads every day to do.

    I need a place to motivate me. A place where I can hold myself acountable for money, and the act of SAVING money. Lately, it seems to slip through my fingers. Not big purchases, as much as $5 here, $5 there. My coupons are in a pile. My coupon book is full of expired coupons. I am spending WAY...

    For all the people who have their clothing washed and then hang it up to dry in 24 hours or less, how do you do it??

    I mean something that you try to be frugal at, but just can't seem to hit it? For me it is craft stuff. I know I could be more frugal about what I buy - I mean I could open my own scrapbooking store with the stuff I stockpiled because I liked it! And now, I am into crocheting - let's not talk...

  16. Christmas
    and call them "living ornaments" if they don't quite bickering!!! I'll use garland to steady them so they don't fly off in the wind. Maybe,just maybe if they are good I'll string some big Christmas lights up there so they can cuddle close to them to stay warm.;) They are just going slightly...

    This is totally awesome for us quilters. Did you know that they now make quilting material 120 inches wide for backing. No more piecing together and no more using sheets if you don't want too. Not only that, but the material can be reversed so that you can use either side. Finally they've...

    We are on the Do Not Call list and we have an unlisted number and we still get lots of calls from telemarketers.  I hate to be rude but I do tell them I am not interested and then hang up before they can go further into their sales pitch.  I hope that I am not being horrible but I don't want to...

They could be rolling, slipping,bunching or riding up &  I hang on to them and suffer because they are still usable and aren't worn out. Well today is the day I am freeing myself and...
