    How did you hear about frugal village? I googled 'frugal simple living forums' and viola! What interests you here? I am interested in working less and living more. Simplicity, organization, frugality. Self-reliance, self-sustainability. I want to connect to others of like-mind. What will you...

    My Bank of America Visa amount is ridiculous due to a huge car repair and having to pay a few bills with it. I realize this bill is already in a bad place and is going to get worse. Yesterday I searched around for a credit card to transfer the balance to with a long 0% interest period to give...

    Maybe it's because it's summer - and it's hot - and I love to blame everything on the heat .... :sunny: Or maybe it's because it's a slower pace now that school's out, and I'm still out of work, and we're just in no hurry to get any where - but I've been doing a LOT of reading about...

    Ahhh...summer. Even though I work through the summer, there is a certain feeling when summer rolls around. Everything slows down and even though I'm still working, I feel like I can breathe a little easier. Summer has always brought about a sense of "time to get back to basics" for me...

    After moving toward simplicity and frugality for the past few years, I have struggled with the fact that simple doesn't always equal frugal, and frugal isn't always simple. I've had to ask myself "what do you want most?" The answer invariably comes to my head "I want an uncomplicated life...

    One of the subsections of this section is personal development. Wondering what others do to nurture that within themselves. Aside from possible church connections what do you do for you?

    We've just moved to a new house and I find myself perched on the abyss of slipping up. How do others keep themselves focused on the simplicities of life. Not buying those new towels to match the new bathroom, staying mindful of reaching for balance and peace, not being overwhelmed by the...

    I'll admit it. I've been a spendthrift for years. Shop therapy is a favorite pasttime. I've also spent the last decades of my life trying to organize the various piles of clutter that consume my space and prevent me from finding what I need when I need it. I quit. I'm trying to change my...

    I have been re-reading the TWG lately, and this thought has crossed my mind, and I wondered if anyone else felt this way. One of the things we have been trying to do for the past few years is declutter. My home is easier to clean, I can actually find things, and I honestly think it looks...

    I've been playing with 3 new cookbooks lately. I've lost 6 lbs. This is not an unrelated occurance, and it really does have something to do with simpler living AND menu planning. Here is the scoop. I bought the first book (to me anyway) which is actually the third in a set by Sandi Richard. I...

    Someone from the forum was kind enough to send me the flyer and I had a ball getting those patterns! I got #4283 which has 6 views of the tiered skirts. This one has the flat band with a zipper at the waist and the tiered gathered going down. #4237 has 6 views of gauchos/pants/shorts in both...

    thinking this morning, (it happens) :toothy: and I was thinking how much harder it is to keep pruning one's life when you've gotten rid of the obvious junk and clutter. You get rid of "friends" that put you down all the time, you containerize nasty rude family members by not being with them...

    <B> The sophistication of simplicity By Ruth Ostrow</B> LAST week I began my three-part series into Voluntary Simplicity, a new movement taking the Western world by storm. As social analyst Rodney Vlais,one of the main promoters of the movement in Australia, says: “Realising happiness cannot be...

    Take 10 minutes and sit outside - or open a window. Close your eyes and just listen. What do your hear? Enjoy the birds, the sound of the wind in the trees.
