  1. OAMC, Homecanning, Freezing, and Preserving
    and it tasted just fine. I started dehydrating in March of 2009, these pineapples are some of the longest items I have stored. I had packaged them first in a food saver bag with an oxygen absorber in with it. Then packaged it with other items in a larger mylar bag that what heat sealed...
  2. Just Tips
    I found out about this great website, StillTasty: Your Ultimate Shelf Life Guide - Save Money, Eat Better, Help The Environment - it lists all types of foods, with shelf life before it's opened, after it's opened. I checked all kinds of things that I did not have a good sense of. I hope you...
  3. Home Environment
    by a horrible smell!!! So, my fridge got a thorough cleaning this morning already. It was something shoved in the back, I gagged my way through it. LOL
  4. Question and Answer
    I buy my ketchup in the club pack. I do this with every other condiment that is sold in both the club pack and regular size. I did the math and the club pack is extremely cheap, compared to the regular size. It also helps save the environment because it's less plastic being sold and put into...
  5. Frugal Canadians
    I don't have a lot to contribute to it right now, I started with $65. But the $5000/yr is cumulative, meaning if I only deposit $1000 this year, I could up to $9000 next year. If I do $$1000 next year, then I can do $13000 the year after. They don't pay much interest, if you put them in GIC you...

    OMG. way better then that stinky old Save-a-lot. Hubby and I hit Aldi's today for the grand opening. We have been putting off any major shopping in anticipation of this. We even got a 5.00 off coupon in the mail. Would you believe we filled our cart in no time flat and were out the door with...

    Thanks for all the replies on my previous post regarding the ING accts. Just opened mine yesterday. I also had a check here from ING for an extra $25 for opening the acct. I will have $25 direct deposited every week, plus with a little extra from DH's bonuses and a few extra pay weeks coming...
  8. Question and Answer
    If it makes any difference this is packaged not deli meat. I have some Land O Frost Smoked Turkey and Honey Ham. Once they have been opened, how long before you toss them?? It doesn't expire until mid-August...but some things once opened spoil quicker, don't they? Is there a way to tell...or...
  9. Question and Answer
    Okay, I am back with yet another question, hopefully people don't get tired of me asking this, that and the other because I always get really great answers. Anyhow, I ended up having to buy a large tub of sour cream and we don't go through it that quickly. Can I freeze it? if yes, should I...

  11. Frugal Living
    Well we've been with our credit union for a few years now, but lately it seems like we've been giving them a whole heck of a lot of our money. We pay $4.50 a month and that includes checks and everything. The first 6 atm or pos transactions are free, after that they are $1 each. We've been...
  12. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Finally after a year and a half DS got his own savings account. We decided to go with ING because of the good interest rate and it all seems pretty simple. The good thing is, we've been able to keep his money separate this whole time and haven't "borrowed" from there and were able to deposit...

    this afternoon! I came home to him sitting on the couch complaining it was hot, while the sun beat in the front door!:surprise: I absolutely REFUSE to turn on the AC (even if it was hooked up). We live in a shady spot on the top of a hill, in the middle of corn fields, where there is always...

    Tonight I sat down and did my budget for a full year...now until Dec 31/06.  I know many people say that you shouldn't bother with a budget cause you'll never stick to it but I really feel that this will help me.  I know exactly where our money is going and how much. I'm paying off one debt at...

  18. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I'm trying to be more organized-this new desk really inspires me :toothy: . I opened a freedom account today. Everytime the car insurance is due, I have to scramble for the money because it's already been spent, even though we budget for it. Now I am budgeting for my freedom account to pay...
  19. Christmas
    I opened my mom's Christmas card and of course there was the check in there. The neighbour gave me a small box and I opened it. How about you?
