    Little Miss, my mom, and I headed to the big big city for a girls day out. Since American Girl store was on the plan Little Miss's doll went too. The trip was Little Miss birthday present back in January it just took us this long to get everyone's schedules to mesh. While in the store Little...

    I bought a Bissell Perfect Sweep cordless sweeper at Wal Mart about a week ago. I love the way it picks up trash, cat hair, even cat litter. The problem is that one of the wheels stopped turning, making it almost impossible to push across a rug. The User's Guide specifically said not to return...
  6. Utilities
    We were randomly without internet for over a day earlier this week, they fixed it remotely somehow, without coming here. I asked, when speaking to tech support, if we would be credited on our bill for the #of days it was down, if it was significant, they said 'oh yes, customer support will do...

    Due to accounting screw ups my husbands employer has not made a direct deposit to our account in a month. My bank only charges a service fee if you do not have direct deposits. Today we got hit with a 12.00 fee and it's not even our fault. Two paydays in a row they didn't even tell anyone...

    DH and I had some lunch today because we'd left the house with SIL before it was time to eat. No biggie... we go to Rona to get a faucet and SIL says to bring both kids to her house while we go get toilets at another Rona. The Rona we'd stopped at was completely out of the $99 dual flush...
  9. Coupons
    I thought I'd try something new.... I've been clipping & sorting & clipping some more.... I thought I'd offer a few sets here at the village. In exchange for my time clipping & sorting, I'm asking for $1 per set, and a self-addressed stamped envelope. I'll send your set of coupons out...
  10. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    As a single person I generate very little trash. I may have 1-2 bags (13 gallon kitchen size) of trash each week. I am paying between $60-$75 every 3 months for this. So, with figuring 24 bags of trash for a 12 week span at $60.....my per bag charge is $2.50! And that's on the low side. I...
  11. Question and Answer
    I'm considering switching to Clear, and getting rid of my DSL service and MagicJack. Does anyone use Clear? If so, what is your opinion of it?
  12. Calculations and Alternatives
    Anyone use this? Do you like it? Have any problems? Sooner or later I think we will have to succumb to 'progress' and get a mobile phone and I like the 'no frills' and 'no contract' approach they are offering. Jitterbug ? Easy to Use, No Contract Mobile Phones for Everyone ? Jitterbug.com

    Is it me or is customer service becoming a dying art? It seems like everytime I go to the bank the teller says she doesn't have the quarters or dollar bill denomination I want. To which I say can you ask another teller? Which they do and whoolah!! All of a sudden they have the quarters or...
  14. Kitchen Basics
    I am so happy. I emailed Cabot Vermont cheddar company and told them how much I love their product and asked for some coupons. See, I am from VT and even though I am in FL, I still buy only Cabot Cheddar. I love their cheese and it reminds me of home. It tends to be pricey, unless Publix is...

    After a snafu at work with my paycheck I went rounds with a customer service rep from our employee services firm (not our company, it's a company that handles our benefits) that repeatedly told me something was impossible and cut me off while I was talking. After the conversation, everything got...

    I am looking for an online at-home job, probably in customer rep, that does not limit you to blocks of hours to work. (let's say from 6am to 12noon). I am trying to find one that lets you work anytime within a 24 hour period. I guess it would be something like West or Alpine maybe Does anyone...

    We pay 35 bucks for three months service and this includes their provided trash bin. Doesn't get much cheaper here. And you? :)

    Hi everyone! I am normally not a believer in anything that is hawked infomercial style on TV. I've seen so many Oxyclean commercials but never believed the hype and didn't want to try it because I think it's pretty darn pricey. I got a partially used bucket from my Grandmother to soak a...
