For example, it doesn't hurt to ask department managers at the grocery store when they mark down their meats or have reduced price produce, etc. Or it doesn't hurt to ask at...

    I was telling my H about a funny story the other day when I had a hot flash at the funeral director's office (taking care of some of my dad's stuff). I was having one right then, with sweat running down my face and it was only 65 in the house, so I showed him and said "just like this". HE...

    It's not often that Dh actually hurts my feelings. Last night, he came home from work at 11:30pm, I stayed up to heat him a plate for dinner and actually wanted to talk about my day too. Basketball was on. He forgot to record it, forgot to ask me to when he called, and I didn't even think to...

    My mom and I were never as close as my sister and her. I always felt less important. I always felt like my mom loved her more, I know that's terrible to say, but I felt it from an early age and it has always stung. It's really very obvious now that we are adults who she favors. I called her up...

    Are you a parent who is hurting for your child? I've noticed some poignant threads lately from parents who are very concerned over their children. I am one of them. Perhaps we can form a thread of support for each other here. Who is a parent? One with a biological or adopted child, for...

    I have been thinking about the post recently where it was mentioned that coupons really stink lately. So, I took it upon myself to e-mail 5 companies from which I typically buy their products and I told them that I like their product, but that with the grocery prices being so high, could they...
