  3. Health and beauty
    I had a minor injury over vacation (sprained ligament). It was painful, but the worst part was being so helpless. So, keep up with the healthy living. It's worth it for the independence. And, I'm much better now, but being helpless was a real wake-up call.
  4. Secondhand Shopping
    I was going to stop at the book store. On a whim, I stopped at the local Salvation Army on the way to the book store. I needed to get books for dd and ds to read. We are all tired of the same old books. I got 44 books for $16.00!!! I can't wait to show dd the books. I only got one or two...

    About a month ago my 10 yr old sister was placed with us after some very unfortunate events. At this moment we dont know if her placement will be permanent or not, but we are hoping that she will get to stay. Adding a fourth child to our home has been a real eye opener for us! We are talking...

    So tonight I was washing dishes and went to put the cloth into the 12oz glass drinking cup that I had... had being the operative word. As soon as I put my hand in to wash the inside, it popped and the glass sliced through my right hand. It cut open quite a bit of skin above my middle finger...
  7. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    The guy at DH's work who did his hours screwed up. This is the second time it's happened. The first time, it was the secretary that recently got fired who did it. This time, DH is the only one who got screwed out of 40 hours (his payday includes 80 hours). The mortgage automatic withdrawal...

    New here, I've posted several times. I've had chronic nausea for 8 months. Stomach surgery. FINALLY got a diagnosis. I have gastroparesis. Basically my stomach doesn't empty into my small intestine well at all and the food sits in my stomach and rots (sorry TMI). Well there's no fast or...

    There is no spell police here! After spending so much time on the net, I hate when people try to correct your grammar and make a big issue of it. (when you still know they can read it) I sometimes look back at my post and laugh because I messed up or maybe I was toooo tired to look the word...

    I've never been to the site linked here, but this article appeared on one of my Google alerts this morning. I found it startling: The author describes a huge list of crisis and disasters the US and the World face. Then he goes on to say: "So...
  13. Stockpiling
    OK, so you know that I'm newly into stockpiling. I understand that now I'm saving money and not having to run out all the time to grab something that is not on sale. But I probably saved 20 dollars this Memorial Day Weekend because of my stockpile. Let me explain. We were invited to 3...

  16. Frugal Living
    I read with interest the thread about the different reasons people are frugal. I've just always lead a frugal lifestyle, and enjoyed it. It makes me proud to be able to stretch a penny into a dime. People are always asking me how I make it on what I make, and my answer is simply "I don't know...

    Bush has the "War on Terror", I have my "War on Marmota Monax" aka The Groundhog. I've spent $105 on this land beaver. I paid this local trapper to trap them in humane live traps and deport them back to their country. He trapped three of them and I thought my troubles were over. Well a month ago...
