  1. General Chat
    I currently get my bills sent to my email and have them set up on automatic bill pay, but have found that by doing this I tend to just file the bill away after putting the amount in the check book register , rather than thoughfully looking it over for mistakes and/or ways I can cut expenses...
  2. General Chat
    This is meant to be a game thread that also introduces us to everyone's quirks and preferences. You answer the question and give another "which do you prefer?" question. Peanut butter sandwiches or grilled cheese sandwiches?
  3. Home Environment
    When using organizing containers in your home, what type do you prefer? Wicker baskets? Plastic containers? Metal containers? Everyone has a different system that both works for them and that they like the look of. What works best in your home? In our playroom, I use plastic, see through...

    What is your favorite coffee ? Mine is Costco Hazelnut brand. I'm not seeing it in the stores anymore, I think they quit making it so will have to find something new. What is your favorite coffee ?
  5. Kitchen Basics
    I haven't done the math, but it seems like dry beans would be a better value. Are they worth the effort? Or is canned the way to go?
  6. Sewing
    For some reason I like to, maybe because I don't have to haul out the machine and everything. I'm quite content to sew while watching tv, or hanging out, by hand. Anyone else?
  7. Christmas
    I do use a few gift bags but I think presents should be wrapped unless they are just to oddly shaped to wrap. My sister hates wrapping and only uses gift bags. I have made small homemade gift bags before for small gifts, and I love wrapping gifts in brown paper and making my own bows.
  8. Needle Arts
    I have a ton of Caron simply soft yarn. I think it isn't a bad buy for the money. It's soft, and knits up pretty well. On the other hand, I would really like to try using more wool or wool blend for the coming winter. I like the peaches and cream to make dish cloths, even though the color does...
  9. Organization Challenge
    or a toaster oven? I saw a toaster oven the other day with two slots on top for toast, must be something new. I have a toaster and sometimes wonder if the toaster oven would be more useful.
  10. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    Pot holders, hands down.
  11. Camping, RV's, Trailers, Outdoor Living
    Dh enjoys both although I know he would prefer camping in the wilds in a tent.
  12. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    Hands down it has to be chicken.
  13. Scrapbooking & Paper Crafts
    ...8 1/2" x 11" paper or 12" x 12"? I prefer the 12" because I can fit more on a page :)
  14. Home Decorating
    Do you prefer carpeting or hardwood, tile or vinyl flooring?  I have carpeting through out my house except for the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room.  I have vinyl in those rooms.  I would love to have hardwood or maybe a one of the new hardwood laminates that are so popular right now.  What...
  15. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    I prefer bottled but I will drink a can, I just like the option of having a lid to replace if I don't finish it as soon as I open it.  I sometimes drink the same 20 ounce soda over 2 work days.
  16. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    Everyone in my family (especially my mom) thanks I am nuts because I won't drink the orange juice they like. My mom won't buy any OJ unless it say's "Not From Concentrate." So what kind do you drink: Tropicana, Minute Maid, other do you like "lots of pulp", "little pulp" or "No pulp" My...
  17. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    I am making a huge decision on whether or not to dye my candles and I need some opinions. Some people say that they like the white/cream of the plain color because it goes with every decor. Others like the colors. What would you be more attracted to and why?
  18. OAMC, Homecanning, Freezing, and Preserving
    I've never done much canning so I don't know alot about that.I mostly freeze my veggies. What do you do?
  19. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    I usually don't have a certain brand I like until it comes down to a bad cold where I go through a box a day :D I can REALLY tell the difference between puffs and kleenex, i had used almost a whole box of the puffs, and not one sore spot UNTIL i used just ONE kleenex tissue :eek: So, which...
  20. Home Decorating
    We have a lot of hardwood throughout our house, and while I really prefer the look of it, I sometimes wonder if just vacuuming carpeting is easier. Of course it is easier to change the look when you have hardwood since you can just change a throw/accent rug for a new look. Plus, it's a great...
