  1. Dave Ramsey
    In Dave Ramsey's book "Total Money Makeover" he says something like: "According to a USA Today study on people 65 years old, 97% can’t write a check for $600, 54% are still working, and just 3% are financially secure." (p. 154) I'm looking for the source of that information, meaning the actual...
  2. Question and Answer
    Does anyone know a good source for current pricing in dental/medical procedures like this? the "code" they gave me is 4341 for Perio Scaling and Root planing, the quote is 425.00 per quadrant (i.e. times 4 or 1800.00 for whole mouth). I'm mostly curious to know if the 25% discount I get is real...
  3. Stockpiling
    I'm looking for a reputable source online to buy staples like packages of instant mashed potatoes, canned foods, things that don't need refrigeration. I was hoping to find a place I could buy large cases or a full palet of food, or just a few cans/boxes/packages. Anyone know someone reputable?
  4. Question and Answer
    You guys seem to know everything so here's the question. I find I need to be on oxygen therapy from time to time (especially overnight) and need to find an O2 concentrator to purchase outright. Does anyone know of any place I can do this inexpensively? Is there some sort of clearing house for...
  5. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Ugh! I can't believe this. First a bonus from the state for teachers was cut - $2500 we won't get anymore. Now this. Dh grades paper for the IB program every year - has for 8 years or so. He always does 2 sets. He got the info and will only be grading 1 set this year - cutting that income...
  6. Preparedness and Survival
    Hello everyone Yesterday I found this site for the first time,and love it! My first post is this question as well as some of my source. I would be interested in finding sources for Bulk foods such as: (Hope it to be Organic) Honey,Bee Pollen,Rice,Beans,Grains,Seeds (sprouting/growing) and just...
  7. Sewing
    If you needed a large amount of black fabric for backdrop purposes, where would you buy it online? I thought someone here might know a good source for bulk solid fabric, doesn't need to be heavy fabric.
  8. Frugal Living
    I'm trying to use more natural cleaners around the house, including homemade cleaners (so much cheaper!). I read somewhere that microfiber towels are the best for cleaning glass and are great to use on floors with a Swiffer. Does anyone have a source where I can get these cheaply? I've done a...
  9. Question and Answer
    I haven't been to the Village for a while, since I've been really sick, so maybe I missed a prior discussion on this. Anyway, I want to do something sorta' special for my grand-daughters for Christmas and am looking to buy several pair of NEW jeans (girls size 5) to embroider with butterflies...

  12. Frugal Canadians
    Hi everyone! I've been trying to use Skim milk from the powder in baking and other recipes as it is cheaper than regular milk. Right now DH and the kids aren't too fond of the taste on cereal. Skim milk powder costs about $10/kilo - slightly less at WalMart. I tried Bulk Barn thinking...
  13. Question and Answer
    hello everyone, I used to buy them from a couple of sites online, but they seem to no longer be in business! Does anyone out there have a good source for them? My supply is dwindling and I would love to find a new home based business that sells them. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
  14. Sewing
    for inexpensive (cheap!) clothing patterns? I don't live anywhere near a fabric store, so I'm interested largely in on line sources, I guess. I asked at my local thrift stores, but they don't carry sewing stuff. Since I'm a fairly adept seamstress, I'd even look at patterns on line that could...
  15. Utilities
    My neighbor was touting his new "space" heater but claimed it was safer than others out there. It runs on antifreeze. I have never heard of such a thing and can't imagine haveing antifreeze inside my house incase of a spill with pets. He is very frugal (IE-won't let his tenants use the dryer...
  16. Just Tips
    Monday I went with some gals from church to a U-pick-it farm. Since its the end of the season and a frost is inevitable soon, they let us pick all we wanted. Normally there is a 10 10-lb bag limit (which is still great) but I got a ton of stuff. Just thought I'd share the idea since there are...

    I am looking for the 2.25/1 electrasol coupon that will be in this week's paper. Would live to trade for multiples! Thanks
  18. Homesteading and gardening
    well I thought the source of my weed tomatoes was the new dirt but then my stawberry bed sptoughted more than 200 tomato plants... so it is not the dirt.... Then I remembered I spread my worm castings in the flower bed and the strawberry bed.. seems I must have fed those worms tomatos.... we...
  19. Question and Answer
    Does anyone have tips for getting a good discount for tickets to Universal Studios in Orlando? We need 5 tickets (for the first part of June), that adds up fast. Craigslist had a few possibilities, but lots of scammers as well. Do the groceries offer discounts? Anyone have any to sell or know...
  20. OAMC, Homecanning, Freezing, and Preserving
    I was wasting time the other day and was on Yahoo and found that they have a Yahoo Group called Frozen-Assets. It's a group dedicated to OAMC and freezing foods for later use. You do have to join, but it is free. You just have to answer their few questions and you're accepted automatically. .
