  1. New Member Introductions
    Hello from sunny northeast Florida, just outside of Jacksonville. I hope to use the forum to help answer questions people have about saving money, particularly on Internet resources that help in this regard, something that has helped me saved $5,000+ annually (my only savings). I learned from...

    Just wondering what you guys pay for your High Speed Internet. I would downgrade to dial up, but need High Speed for live streaming on my netflix account (I don't have cable). I'm paying about $50.00 a month and it seems pretty slow.
  4. Sweeps and Online Contests
    In my town, we have places opening up that have signs outside saying "internet sweepstakes". They are everywhere and have opened up in a lot of vacant buildings. Any idea what these are? I don't want to go inside just in case it is something I will get "addicted" to. Thanks!
  5. Weddings and bridal showers
    This article is about a bride who planned her entire wedding through the internet - for a destination wedding. I was all gung ho reading this as I love reading how others save money but this had me flabbergasted at the end. Clearly her definition of 'frugal' is nowhere near mine!! :thud...

    Please bear with me as I'm not even quite sure how to word this post. And it's going to read messy. Got the new internet bill. In addition to the $39.95 there was another $37.50 attached for over usage. Yes, it was always unlimited. Took it in in person. Explained to me that this started...
  13. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    My boyfriend was discussing cable yesterday with a friend at work. His friend told him that he pays about 110 dollars a month for his TV, phone and internet package AND had a sports package and movie package on the TV. We were paying 153 a month for TV, internet and phone and had no extra...
  14. Careers
    Does your work/office expect you to have a cell-phone and high speed internet? Do they expect you to use it for work? Are you compensated or is it just expected as a "normal" thing you should have and use? It seems to be the norm for business to just "expect" us to have these items and use them...

    We started having intermittent internet service about 4-6 wks ago. Until this time, we'd had no problems with our DSL other than installation. The Verizon tech came out a couple of weeks ago and supposedly fixed the problem. It wasn't really fixed. I spent 39 minutes on the phone with a rep on...
  16. Preparedness and Survival
    This is something that I think about often as well as ways my family can survive in the short and long of it. I was talking to the Old Man tonight about all this - he was watching a comedy where the 'internet broke'. He's always liked the "Fight Club" fantasy (and we don't even have credit...
  17. Question and Answer
    Hello everyone and thank you in advance. My computer is, I think, about 5 years old. A lap top but a bigger, heavy clunker. I would like to keep it but have something smaller to use. A true laptop. I need a "router" I believe. I noticed they come in "good" "better" and "best" I think. Would...
  18. Coupons
    I see ladies using multiple internet coupons. I can usually only print one or two of each. There are times I would love to have multiples to stock up. I have ordered clipped coupies from the internet in multiples before if it is a really good deal. But the internet ones have me stumped.

    Hi I have just gotten in the series Dexter and Australia has just started showing series 3. I actually bought it on DVD on the weekend because it is on at a strange hour and no guarentee it will be on every week. I saw that the new series starts at the end of the month and thought I would...

    I've been searching for old buddies of mine for a long time now and finally, tonight I found another one! I haven't spoken with him in eight years and I was just so overjoyed when I found out he'd messaged me back. :D We were really close friends when we were in the Marine Corps together and we...
