    How do I get my wife on board with the seriousness of our financial situation? I have always handled the finances. She has never balanced our checkbook nor really kept track of her spending. Very rarely does she even enter her purchases in our check register. We've tried envelopes, but then...

    My B'day is coming up and my Mom has offered to do one of the following - which would you chose? 1. The Rain Shower head - it's low flow and will reduce water usage and it looks oh so cool! 2. To pay to get my hair highlighted - It really needs it 3. A Gift card to the local department store...

  11. Question and Answer
    I have put in an order for a divacup and gladrags through a church co-op. I have been looking at the lunapads online, and was thinking of trying them. They are very expensive though so I was wondering if anyone here has tried them and if they like them?? I don't want to buy them if they are...
