    The Sun is a trashy tabloid but a lot of people in the UK read it. They appeal to a lowest common denominator sort of audience. This article kind of illustrates how certain non-frugal people see frugal people. Rather than taking the opportunity to congratulate this family on conserving energy...
  5. Home Decorating
    What do you think makes a room look nice? "Pulled together"? I'm watching home dec shows and they always go out and buy new stuff. There must be a way to do this without spending thousands on new furniture. I realize not everything I own will work, but there must be some standards for...

    Hubby has played WoW for several years now. To help make our budget work Hubby decided to cancel his subscription. He figured with Cataclysm coming out this was a good time to do so, so the money wouldn't been spent on the new release. I know this was hard for him (it was hard for DS to as he...

    I'm sorry I need to vent. I have a friend that has lots and lots of money.....I know for a fact that she does....(I have seen some of her statements, bills etc.) It just drives me crazy when she whines and complains about not having money and how broke she is. I am about to be layed off, my...

    I will give you a few of mine. When I empty the dishwasher and see many canning jars, I feel frugal. The same goes for using a stiff, rough towel. I know it was line dried and saved money. When I get a plastic shopping bag and notice there are few left, I know I have not been buying much at...

    Hubby and I are house shopping. We've looked at lots so far, and one especially has caught our eye. We both agreed that when we walked in, it just felt like home. That got me to wondering. What exactly is this mysterious thing that makes a place "feel like home"? Is it a remnant of...
