    Saw this today and knew it would be appreciated here at the Village...couldn't resist...I read it twice and couldn't agree more. Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records...

    To buy land and a big mobile home and then save to build our dream home while paying the rest off and eventually use the mobile home as a guest house or a place for my parents to live if they want when they get older... I've been told that a mobile home is just too dangerous because of tornadoes..
  3. Question and Answer
    Being new to actually applying frugality to my life ( I'v been a fan for a long time) it seems like everything starts with a decision. For example- we eat at home we don't go out to eat, we shop as much as we can at thrift stores and yard sales we only buy new if we REALLY need it. Things...

    i have memorized the emma thompson/ang lee version of this story. i also like the 2008 BBC version with dan stevens. bleak, lonely , dreary, really pulls out emotions. need smelling salts for the opening scene, but i like anything andrew davies does. they had more time to tell the story...

    I have a blackberry right now and am really hating the payments on it. I just go it back in January, so I have about 26 months left on the contract. Which will cost me around $2470 by the time I'm done. I'm looking at another phone at a different company for about $37 a month. The phone is $175...

    So we have had DD in daycare because I was working the two jobs and we got it partly subsidized. So we pay 290 a month. She goes every other day because she goes to school the other days. So DH and I are trying to find ways to save money. So I was thinking of telling work that I could work the...

    I know I do not do the frugal thing sometimes, but it really amazes me how many people have no idea. For example on GMA this morning the big budget segment was, not get this, to save money, shop thrift stores. I don't know, I guess it is true, common sense is not so common any more. What...

    My fiance and I have totally erratic schedules. We're both grad students, past coursework, so while we have a lot of work, we hardly have a set schedule to do it in. I'm constantly trying to save more energy and money in this house and nearly everyone recommends a programmable thermostat. But is...
  15. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    I may be sorry for posting this but this has been gnawing me at for some time. I may not be the most political savy person but I do think I have atleast a grain of common sense. So here it goes: WAR: Why can't we have our troops home by Christmas? I am not saying I am for or against the war, I...

    http://www.daveramsey.com/media/pdf/the_common_sense_fix.pdf Looks like Dave is the only guy with the brain to fix all this when it comes to this "Bailout" stuff. I've already emailed my Senators and Reps and told them to follow this plan and then get Ramsey a cabinet position!

    Ya know...normally, I try to see the funny or good in everything. Sometimes, when tragedy strikes and I'm laughing at something that I know one day I'll be able to look back on and actually find funny... does anyone know that feeling? Like you shouldn't be laughing when it happens, but if you...
  19. Goals and Dreams
    Ok, I just finished responding to another thread that rising costs might see me biking to work. Nice goal, good idea under normal circumstances. Then we get to the BUT part (I always seem to have a big "but" in the picture). I am currently unable to walk, much less bike. So, while that might be...
