  5. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    A dear friend is for the most bed bound and on better days wheel chair bound now. She had steps going up a good hill that took 3 people and a good amount of time to get her down. She couldn't get the wheel chair through most doorways in the house. She also needed the bathroom handicap ready. It...
  6. General Chat
    I am just curious. How much personal information do you give out on a social site? Have just noticed there are times I would like to reply to a post but stop myself because I think, well, that might be a little to much information. Guess I have read and heard to many warnings about identity...

    Can they ever be frugal? I'm contemplating using one for several reasons. 1) my wardrobe needs a serious overhaul and I have no idea where to begin...well I do. It's called throw everything out and start over. Nothing fits. 2) DH takes the car to work every day and it makes it really hard...

  10. Goals and Dreams
    It's New Year's Eve in the southern hemisphere and the time has come for a radical overhaul in our financial situation.

  12. Health and beauty
    I could use a party, please! Have had major cramps for 2 days, but no bleeding yet ~ most likely tomorrow or Saturday. It's been horrible since my very first when I was 14 (just turned 30), but my parents kind of blew it off. I don't see how they could ignore it, I was in the bathroom...
  13. Health challenges
    ...stop my world, get off the merry-go-round....and build back up again. This was nothing I planned, it just happened. I had been a little concerned as to how much time I was spending here at FV and if I was indeed shortchanging the life and people around me. And then I just took a break from...
  14. Goals and Dreams
    My big goal is to be debt free. But I have a feeling my husband will want to buy another house up in northern California in the next year.

  17. Meal planning
    I decided that the time had come to see what I was made of... so to speak... and see what creative, healthy and frugal meals I could make. I planned a weekly menu and shopped accordingly. I had a decent stockpile to begin with which had plenty of veggies, rices and spices. Total spent on...
  18. Secondhand Shopping
    Today was my day to receive gratuitious fashion advice. I was checking out from the thrift store fill-a-bag sale this morning. "Look here," said one of the workers sorting clothes behind the counter. "These are your size." The the 3 volunteers led me back to the just-sorted rack and let me...
  19. Goals and Dreams
    My challenge for myself for 2010 is to go from being completely reliant on my boyfriend Christopher, to completely self reliant. Nothing is guaranteed, and if I suddenly needed to support myself and my son, I want to be able to do that. I want to know that we'll be okay no matter what. To...
  20. Goals and Dreams
    As some of you know, my son was accepted into the university of his choice next September. Since he and I do not have our American Work Visas yet but should get them soon, extra cash is difficult to come by. I will be, over the next year, selling everything that I can to make extra cash for...
