  1. Meal planning
    I have a problem that's been bothering me for a while. I never seem to eat a real lunch. I'll eat a cookie, a snack bar and sandwich...basically carbs, carbs, and more carbs. If DH is home, we have "real lunch"...meat, veggie, and side. DD is now home for the summer and I really want to keep...

    In the documentary, Food Inc. They showed a family going through the drive thru buying off the dollar menu. Said they had to even though they knew it was bad for them because they were to busy (not a home much), it was cheap, and it filled them up. They spent $11 something for the family of 4...

    Do you have a junk drawer? If so, where is it? What is in there? Why do you let it continue to be a junk drawer? Are you totally against cleaning it out and repurposing it to be a "something" drawer, as opposed to a catchall? We have a junk drawer. It's under the counter that houses the...

    I'm pretty much banning it for Christmas this year. The fact that I've basically banned the television as well will hopefully help with the gimmes this year as well, because most of their ideas for presents come off the tube. Every year, I pretty much spend a ton on toys that I think they'll...

    :call: I keep getting random calls on my cell - and it's like SPAM (I don't have a land line for this VERY reason!) It appears to be from a number that I can not call back or track. The automated call is trying to sell me something. Today's call was for a mortgage. Do they EVEN know who...

    Scribbler, my twelve-yr-old, spends all of her free time daydreaming about clothes, friends, boys, and music. Any work is done with a lick and a promise. aka, shoddy jobs -- chores and school work. I have racked my brain to find something solid to interest her: creative writing, cooking...
