  1. DIY
    I had to replace the right front brake line on my car, it had become chafed through. My car: 1998 Dodge Neon automatic. anyways, after 3 days of labour, I decide to turn it over to take it for a test drive, and lo and behold, it will not start. The only things I can remember doing are: 1...
  2. Coupons
    I'm no extreme couponer, but my supermarket has been running coupons recently where, if you spend €15, you get €6 off - which is a great deal, since it's not limited by product. The only thing is, if you have more than one coupon, you have to do multiple sales receipts. And each one has to...
  3. Utilities
    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...
  4. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I'm tired of doing the credit card bounce and we'd like to consolidate our debt to one place. We currently owe approximately $27 K. One of our banks will give us a secured line of credit for this amount at prime +1% (now at 4%). It will require a $150 setup fee + interest only monthly...
  5. Laundry
    Hi everyone, I'm new here. :) We are a family of 2 adults, a toddler and a baby. We are moving next week and I really want to start line drying our clothes. We want to use as little electricity as possible. So my question is, about how many feet of line do you need for a load of laundry? Anyone...

    I Need opinions/options and input please. :) What's your set up for line drying and what would you change if you don't like it. What do you like about it? How can you make it more efficient? Thanks bunches.
  7. Stockpiling
    I am having some issues here and need some fellow frugal folk's input. At what point does it become hording? I currently have enough deodurant to last for several years. It was all purchased on sale and with coupons, I started with 6 tubes that I paid 75 cents each for and then just last week...
  8. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I visit another board and commented about an emergency fund I was shocked at some of the responses I got, that they believe that I should open a line of credit and use that instead of saving for an emergency fund? Does anyone else think like that? Or do that? I'm actually shocked!! I would much...
  9. General Chat
    Like for months? I'm seriously considering pulling the plug on both the internet and the cable this summer. We moved to a farm 15 months ago and last summer my kids haven't been outside any more than they were when we lived in town! I want them to experience the life I had growing up...you...

    I remember from last year we almost missed the $800 credit. This year I made sure we did remember. My sister almost forgot but her tax preparer did not let it get by. It is easy to miss. I think and I STRESS the word THINK it is the work credit on line 63 with a schedule M. Find out if you...
  11. Family
    Backstory: My wife has a rather extended family. I'm guessing her father thought there wasn't a large enough population in North-Eastern Colorado, or was concerned about Social Security, and decided he was going to do something about it himself. As he was trying to produce his own baby boomer...
  12. Frugal Living
    After reading this thread, I am wondering why frugal people would have cells and a land line. Would anyone help satisfy my curiosity?

  14. Homesteading and gardening
    I called my favorite greenhouse before I left today to find out if they had raspberries yet. Apparently, no. They didn't get in. I was fine with that. I then call back and ask about gooseberries. Sure yeah, the guy said, we got some in today. This was 2pm that I called. I finally make it down...

  17. Laundry
    Hi Everyone. I live in an apartment and they would never let us put laundry on my patio here. Darn it. But I have been using the dryer since I moved here and want to stop. I didn't bring my folding racks I had at the house. I'm looking at the Mrs Pegg's Handy Line. It's kind of pricey at...

    Shoppers Dropping Shopping Carts Found this article interesting. Just the other day I was shopping at Costco, using cash as usual (learning from Dave Ramsey) and watched the register like a hawk. I always keep tabs but more so lately. I've also asked the cashier to set aside items that were...
  19. Frugal Living
    between frugal and cheap? Just out of curiosity where do you draw the line? This morning I had a memory of my grandfather telling us we could use two squares of toilet paper and dragging us into the bathroom demanding to know who'd put the roll on wrong. I personally will shop for the best deal...
  20. Question and Answer
    I have been trying to dry my laundry without using the dryer as much as possible. The problem is that I don't have a clothesline. I have a rack - one of those wooden ones that folds down flat. It holds about 3/4 of a load, with the rest getting hung on hangers on the shower curtain rod. So one...
