    I live in Florida. My hubby put up a nice clothes line for me today. I've been asking for one for a while. I just put up the first load. Never done this before, and I'm strangely excited about it. I just don't like the idea of paying to dry the clothes in the dryer, and then paying more to...
  2. Question and Answer
    Do you have trouble with your washer viberating really bad? We have had our LG front load washer for three years now and it has always viberated really bad but we just bought the pedastels to go under it and it seems to be worse. My husband has tried everything, he waits t'll it goes into the...
  3. Question and Answer
    Hi all! I thought my washing machine broke last week (terrible burned smell coming from it) - turns out that it was the cord, not the washer itself. Unfortunately I panicked and went out and bought myself a new front-load washer...on credit. I'm so ashamed. Now that I know my topload is NOT...
  4. Laundry
    Just wondering - I used to sell Amway and I LOVE the SA-8 laundry soap. Cea questions it's value but we don't know exactly how many loads we get or what the cost was of the stuff we would buy at BJ's. What do you buy/use and what is your cost per load? I'm being nerdy and want to compare. :)

  6. Laundry
    Is it more efficient to dry one large load or two small loads. I am confronted with this dilemma because of unexpected rain. If I remove towels from the equation, I could dry one big load. I just am not sure which would use less energy.
  7. Question and Answer
    I am looking for some advice on a new washer and dryer. I really would like a front loading one. If you have one or were going to buy one, what kind would you get? I am putting a new roof on my house this month so it will be a little while. I guess it's time to start a fund for it just like we...

  9. Coupons
    I hit the recycling bin at the local paper after dropping DS off at school. They have TONS like a whole dumpster full of the Sunday edition....bundled in rubber bands. I couldn't grab the whole bundles they were TOO heavy so I pulled a bundle apart paper by paper. I was too scared to take...

  11. Laundry
    I tried doing a search, but do you have any idea how many laundry threads there are? :surprise: Let me preface by saying that I know a lot of gals on here make their own laundry detergent, but since I work 7 days a week, I find it easier to buy. I buy the Tide when on sale/with coupon and it...

    I went and looked at front load washer tonight. There were lots of LG's. Is that a really good brand. It is between a LG and a Maytag Epic. Which would be the best bang for the buck?
  13. Utilities
    did you see a drastic drop in your water or electric bill after you switched to a front load from a top load washer? How much did you save a month? We are looking into maybe getting a set of front load machines if we can justify it with the savings. We have a family of 5, so I wash alot of...

    Well, maybe not the mother load, but boy did I luck into a deal. I was driving the back roads in an area I haven't been through in 15 years and saw a garage sale sign. On a Wednesday!? Drove past and then thought, well, why not! I found some great books: Cut Your Bills In Half Cut Your...

    $2,500 this morning. Income tax came in ( Turbo Tax) . We paid the majority of one bill. Kept a little aside for the wood we will be getting tomorrow.

    My youngest DD Amanda was in preschool this past year since I taught there. I was aware that a lot of the parents were "Higher end" than we were, but I never realized how much until today. I got a call from the mom of one of the other 3 year olds. It seems that they are having a birthday party...
