  1. Meal planning
    I am new to "frugal village" and right now my main focus is cutting corners and saving money on our grocery bills. This week the grocery store (Price Chopper/Northeast) has split chicken breasts (bone-in) on sale for $1 a pound. I am hoping to buy 10-15 pounds of chicken. Any suggestions on...

  4. Health and beauty
    This is an update on my foot that I cut Dec 26th,09. The wound specialist told me its not healing at all. So he is going to treat it more agressively. This is so much fun..... Just a reminder everyone with diabetes to take care of your feet Fern

  6. Question and Answer
    I have had trouble getting enough of the food-safe buckets for storing wheat, sugar, etc. and think I just may have to purchase some. I can occasionally pick one up at Publix, but I need many more. I saw some at Lowe's with the #2 and the triangle on the bottom, but they were gray and had a...

    This is what people from the 1930's thought we'd be wearing around the year 2000. LOL! I have to say, my dh would look spiffy in that man's outfit at the end! :hubba:
  8. Find Your Kith
    I absolutly adore her books. I don't think I'll ever want a movie to come out, I don't think it could live up to it.
  9. Family
    My sisters best friend is having a baby shower, now I am friends with her but not as good as she is. This is her second baby and her second baby shower, both girls within 3 years of each other. I wasn't invited to the first one, but I am now invited to the second one and obviously expected...
  10. Home Environment
    I am in the process of deep cleaning my bedroom. It is taking so very, very long cause I have way too much stuff! I have been pitching or donating, but now I am down to the nitty gritty. The nitty gritty (to me) is the stuff I have "saved". My problem is old stuff! I love old stuff! These...

    Is anyone else noticing that with the new version 3 of Firefox, the spell checker picks up some contractions (does not/doesn't, can not/can't) as misspelled words? :ponder:

  13. Home Environment
    I saw a cute looking book by Peter Walsh, (I didn't buy it, THAT would just be more clutter! LOL!) but it looked funny and right to the point for ME, anyway. The title is 'Does this Clutter make my Butt look Fat?' In it (apparently) he talks about how you (almost) never see anyone with a...

    What would you do? I am getting enough tax back to pay off all our debt and that would be great but we have exactly 7.33 in our EF and dh thinks we should keep half of it to fund the EF. Do you think we should spend all 100% of it to pay off bebts or do you think we should pay off some bebts...
  15. Kitchen Basics
    A crockpot was mentioned in another thread and it reminded me of a question I've been meaning to ask. I need a new crockpot and I'd like some input from real people (not reviews on amazon). I have a Rival 6qt crockpot with a removable stone pot. Its about 3 1/2 yrs old and the crock seems to...

    Pennies dated before 1981 are worth more than twice their face value if you take them to be recycled for their copper content. You get more than double your money! It is also not against the law to melt down small currency in case anyone was wondering. Just thought this was interesting.
