Last night, he comes home and tells me that he won the...

    This is CRAZY. They have made it against the rules to write down the prices for their products. You can't take photos either. So would this mean that those of us who use price lists (I DO!!!) not be allowed to use them at this store? Tesco, for those who don't know, is a HUGE HUGE...

    I'll have to fill in the blanks more later (because I'm leaving for church in about 1/2 an hour), but I want to start a thread for advice and support about a possible major life change that I haven't even mentioned to DH yet. ....So it's not like it's going to happen, but it may. DH has been...

  7. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I don't know which forum to put this in, so I am putting it in the one I post most often at this board. I am throwing this on here because I like the anonymity and generally the people here are nice, even when we may disagree. Here is the situation I find myself in. About 3 years ago, I took...

  14. Dave Ramsey
    Major Loophole No. 1 In general Dave Ramsey's advice is good, but due to his religious views, you have to subtract this bias from his advice regarding ALL money matters. For example, Dave constantly complements and encourages people to have children WITHOUT REGARD TO THEIR FINANCIAL SITUATION...
