    I think I have some irrational fears or something. LOL We have tons of roll over minutes, unlimited texting, lots of friends have [email protected] like we do, so it's free minutes. The teens mostly text anyway. If I drop my land line I could save around 30ish a month. The net would be 40.00 plus tax. What...
  2. Homesteading and gardening
    ~I just spent several hours walking through 5 wooded acres of land for sale. I'm in love! It's very reasonably priced for our area. There are restrictions to how/where we build on the land since it's in a protected zone. Here's the description from the listing: "5 Acre Home Site. Wetland...

    Well, I've finally made a couple of posts, so I guess I should maybe introduce myself? Saw the "new member questionnaire" sticky, so here goes! How did you hear about frugal village? I actually stumbled onto it probably about a year ago or so, I was searching google for some recipe, can't...
  4. Question and Answer
    Hi, I'm new to this site. I was wondering if anyone might have some info about how to find out about renting a small parcel of land to start a produce garden? I have a small gardening business to grow enough produce (tomatoes, peppers, onions, cabbage etc) to sell at our local market. I'm...

    My dh and I have been mulling this over. We would like to buy some land, but it is so terribly expensive here. We know of a few families that have expressed interest in more land for gardening than their backyards can accomodate, so we were thinking that this might be an option. I know in...
  6. Secondhand Shopping
    Today at Goodwill I found the Snow boots Little Miss is needing. They were Lands End snow boots in her size and they were purple. $3.50. Only pair of snow boots they had. Little Miss had requested that I try to find a girl color this year. This light purple definitely fits the bill. :hurray:

    After reading this thread, I am wondering why frugal people would have cells and a land line. Would anyone help satisfy my curiosity?

    Has anyone gotten one these. I was the store tonight and looking through magazines waiting for my meds to be filled. Its call Pioneer something can't recall. It was a good read . But it was like $ 10 bucks.

    Just had the mortgage lesson last night at FPU. DR firmly put mobile homes in the bad category. So of course I come across a single-wide mobile home with a 2 or 3 car garage and 10 acres in an area we'd be willing to consider on a tax auction list. Assessed at $24K. I'm willing and able to...
  10. Question and Answer
    I've had high speed [email protected] internet and home phone forever, so pardon my stupid question. My home phone and net are billed together. Is there a way if I wanted to get rid of the land line to save money and still have dial up and would it be cheaper? How does that work if you don't have a phone. Is...

    Dh and I were talking last night and were discussing cutting back on some things for the summer or for good. We got to talking about phones: Dh wants to just get rid of the house phone and get two cell phones, but I sort of want to keep the house phone and get rid of the cell phone! I...

    I have 3 half siblings, 2 brothers and a sister. Well one of the brothers molested most of his younger siblings including me which caused me a lot of problems until I could work it out in therapy. After I worked it out I finally told my half-sister because she had young girls and this brother...

    How many of you use each or both? What are you paying a month on your phone bill? Do you really need a cell phone, or is it a convenience? I did research at one point and we ended up dropping the bundle on our land line and buying a new phone with an answering machine. We went with YAK...
  14. Utilities
    a couple of months ago I called our Land lord because the Gas Hot water System was being a bit dodgy, within 24 hours she had had it replaced with a brand new one (the old one would have been at least 30 years old) Well it is obviously much more efficient then the old on, our gas bill was $35...
  15. Question and Answer
    We have finally come to the end of our contract for our land line (stupid phone company). My question is for anyone that has dumped their landline and gone with cell phones only....how does it work for you? Do you have any worries about emergency calling? We could save $50. a month by getting...

    :nrant: We had asked him to come look at our oven and Fridge because they are not working correctly. The oven burns things on the bottom and the top stays gooey. Then the fridge just sounds like a wounded moose when it comes on and doesn't keep the milk as long as the other fridge did. He...
