  1. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    First of my MIL is the sweetest woman in the world. I have done tons of orders for her off of ebay the last few years. For quite a while she didnt pay me until the order came and that got expensive! One week my checking was pretty low and she had a big order. MY savings is not tied to my...

    My cat seems to really like the sounds of paper, especially brown paper bags. Doesn't matter how big or small the bag but she likes to sit on it then use her back feet to make noise. Always freaks me out at first since I think she is going to the bathroom but no, she is just moving her back...

    ~I know you're all probably just gonna say toss them and try to get my money back but I'll ask anyway. I bought one of those huge cryovac packs of pork ribs and put in the fridge for a week. I do this with pork loin as well without issues as long as I deal with it by the Sell By date. Well when...

    I saw this video of a kitten eating broccoli. This kitten was really enjoying her broccoli. One cat I had loved a small piece of donut. She would run around screaming until she got a piece. Then scream some more for more donut. Was pretty funny. Growing up the cats ate canteloupe, corn...

    As I am leaving Super Walmart today, at the main exit, I see a man standing with a sign... It say's, "I'm Broke... Please Help" A) In our town, it is not a common site.... B) People leaving Walmart, are either shopping there cause they have to.... or like to save every penny they can and hold...

    Does anyone else have a separate basket for odd socks? I started one of these about 5 years ago, and it has really helped keep the sock drawers organized. Before, I just threw the leftover socks in the drawer and eventually would just end up with a big messy drawer filled with mis-matched...

    I found a similar thread from 2008 labeled "what's your weird food?" but was unable to open it? Sooo, I want to make this one slightly different, but with the same general idea. What is something that you or maybe your whole family eats other's may find odd? This could be just "family...

    Ever have odd game pieces? I know you can get replacement pieces for some games, but I mean when the board game is long gone and all you have are pieces and parts. I've seen people make i Spy jars and jewelry and that's cute, but any other ideas?

I pulled the rest of them and some of them had extra coupons for Nickelodeon Movies and games and Dole fruit cups. Same paper but some had em...

    I had to call WIC this morning because I miscarried this weekend. They said that I can continue to have WIC for another 6 months. I think it's strange. I know you are allowed to continue it after you have a baby but I never thought about being able to keep it after a miscarriage. I do have...

    So, my son comes in to tell my that there is a woman sitting in our flower bed. Thought he was joking, but sure enough, there was. I guess she had tripped and ended up there covered in dirt. Neighbors were all standing around looking at her. I have no idea who she is, she is covered in paint...

    Since the first of the year when I've made a hearty effort to return to frugally living I've noticed a few things. I don't have one friend that knows how much their electric bill is. They don't read grocery sale ads or clip coupons. They think I have good ideas, but when I hung a clothesline...

    Anyone out there have kids with oppositional defiance disorder? My 11ds has this. I would love to talk with anyone that understands the constant battle of having a kid like this. I love him with my whole heart but sometimes I just don't know what to do with him. If anyone has an older child...

    Hi, I have a really nice pantry cabinet, the kind with the inside swinging doors on piano hinges, and everything is so easy to get to. With that said, I have no excuse for some of the stuff that lives in my pantry. It's the stuff that I bought on impulse and now I am scared to throw it away...
