  1. OAMC, Homecanning, Freezing, and Preserving
    I just wrapped and put my extra flour and rice in the freezer. What else can I freeze? I am working hard on my stockpile, because I don't see any prices going down.
  2. Health and beauty
    I've lost 40 lbs since having my baby, but I want to lost another 10-20. I have been awful for the past 3 weeks. I became brave this morning and got on the scales. I've gained a lb. Which, I feel like I have gained 5 lbs. I've been eating a lot, all the wrong things, and have not worked...
  3. Goals and Dreams
    I've been thinking about my goals for 2008 and suddenly realized that, perhaps, I should check out my 2007 goals and see how I did. Fitness - My goal had been to get back down to 120. As of this morning, I was at 120 when I stepped on the scale. That's great. However, more importantly, I had...
  4. Leisure & Media Arts
    I'm thinking that I can't stand that waitress Courtney!!!! The whole rolling of her eyes, not participating, etc... I like the gravedigger, and Leslie. Who do you like?
  5. General Chat
    of the cattyness (sp?) of women? Where I live it's rampant. I live in suburbia, avoid PTA meetings like the plague and chose my friends carefully, ensuring that my private life stays just that. Gossiping is not my style :lalala: nor is drama. We have drama queens on every bus stop and street...
  6. General Chat
    I live smack dab in between Chicago and Indianapolis. In this area families are divided about who will win the super bowl. My husband says we should support the Colts because they are from our state. I say I don't care, because for years the Bears were all we had and I am not that into pro...
  7. What's for dinner
    Blackeyed peas, turnip & collard greens, rice, bit of leftover ham and cornbread. Need all the lucky $$$$$-bringing luck I can get!
  8. Frugal Living
    I felt very brave to be sticking my beloved down comforter in the washer. I read somewhere else that someone had done this with no problems, so I just did it. It was a little scary, but it actually worked! Mind you, I don't really recommend anyone else doing it, because I don't want to be...
  9. Family
    We will be going on a mini-vaca next week and when we are gone, we will be having DD's birthday party. We are having a Dora and Diego Fiesta, so I wanted to make a pinata. I spent ALL weekend (once I was done being creeped out Saturday morning) working on the pinata. I could have bought one...
  10. Freebies
    Ok, so Sunday morning, while :smooch: was asleep, I went out and did some yard saling. I had prepared quite well -- I had some cash, a comfortable outfit on, my sunglasses, and my map of the city. I started driving around my suburban neighborhood, and then I began adventuring on. The first...
  11. Home and family challenges
    What exciting things were found, tossed, given away, or given a new home somewhere else??? I realized that I have no counter space and the bread machine I hardly use was sitting on it, and I had other containers that could be moved.. So the containers went under the counter in a freed up space...
  12. Health and beauty
    My dd starts to laugh hysterically when she sees what videos I'm taking out on loan. Both videos are Yoga videos. So why would she be laughing. The librarian says I'm thinking she thinks you won't do these. Once we got home, my dd then says to her dad, are you going to do Yoga...
  13. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    What do you think? (Aside from the fact that who the heck wants to touch flies???) http://www.mit.edu:8001/people/dinoriki/phliez/work-well-together.html
  14. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    Whenever possible. I don 't like shoes and prefer to go bare footed as much as I can. Even working in the garden, I don't wear shoes. I do wear gardening shoes though when I'm mowing the lawn or it's extremely wet outside.
  15. Homesteading and gardening
    We have apples and cherry trees. I'm hoping to plant some plum trees this spring.
  16. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    Not at all. I never watch any comediens on tv? Dh loves them especially the Red/Green Show.
  17. Home Environment
    Home made quilt and right now I have an older quilt on that is mint green/pink.
  18. Christmas
    Just wondering who are practicing a frugal Xmas?
  19. Secondhand Shopping
    Well, I hit the thrift store today: $5/bag sale .. and I had a few things too big for the bag, so my total was $8: * Leslie Fay dress for me * 4 turtlenecks for me (mfgrs: St Johns' Bay; Jonathan Martin; Lands' End; and Arizona Jeans) * pair of RED velour sweat pants for me * 2 pair long...
  20. Computers
    ...editing out info that was too detailed about where I live. I had to go through 1000+ posts. Phew- it took a couple hours! I am too comfortable here, but it has been nagging at the back of my brain for a while, and I should know better as I have had a real-life stalker before. Anyway, I...
