    Anyone want to comment on the Aldi brands of fish sticks? I notice they are having a sale on them this week, and I was thinking of stocking up. We don't eat a lot of processed food but I like to keep a couple boxes of better quality fish sticks on hand for quick dinners. How does Aldi compare...

    Anyone know where we can buy these in Canada? I love Chef.com in the US, but we can't bring their goods over the border. There must be something up here in the hinterland too?

    Interesting thought based on Stinkbugs Thread here. How much are you willing to pay for that extra quality that takes an item to "good quality"? An extra 10% - 20% or more? American mfgs, I'm sure can and do make a higher quality item in some cases, but when it comes down to brass tacks...

    What do you feel is your best quality? I would probably say persistence. I don't give up easily. I keep at something until it's either done or can't be finished. I dig and dig untill I've learned all I can learn about something I'm interested in.

    We're thinking of trying Aldi soon. Are there any products to avoid due to quality issues? Is it easy to determine where their food originates from? We're very nervous about eating food products from mainland China now and are doing our best to avoid them due to the recent fatal QC failures...

    We have a patch of dirt along the front of our house that sits between the house and the rest of the yard. We have a large pine tree in the middle of the yard. The patch of dirt was subjected to cat and dog fecal matter and urine before we purchased our house. We spent some time and put in peat...

    For a store where everything’s a dollar, I’m surprised I don’t shop there more often. I guess I’m a creature of habit so I’m more likely to go to a store that I know will have a particular item in stock. But recently I took a trip to my local dollar store to see what they have to offer. Now the...

    At what point do you cross the point of choosing quality over frugality? What is your specific bugbear in this whole frugality thing? Now we're older, for DH and I it is appliances. We've bought so much cheap stuff over the years - at garage sales ('why are you selling it?' is a very good...

    We have been trying to live frugally for a few years now and I still struggle with this issue. I know that we have saved a bit of money with me being frugal about things but this is one issue that I have been struggling with for a while that makes me feel super guilty. I.e. typically when we...
