  4. Financial hardship
    I am getting a TON of phone calls looking for my husband's ex-wife. They have been divorced for over twenty years and she is now on husband #4. We know her address, but not her phone number. These companies have her address and phone number. She is just ignoring them. She is a scheming...

    ...and I don't know how to feel about it. She is a nice enough woman, moved here about 4 years ago, has one son just off to college this year and one son about 11. They are nice people. She can be a picky-picky type person, and is kind of a health nut (rightly so, she has had tongue cancer...

    I'm angry and I don't know what to do about it. I'm posting this here so I can get some input, or to vent, or something... I can't talk openly about for a couple reasons. One, because I don't consider myself a complainer or a gossip or spiteful person. Secondly, it's personal and as mad as I am...
  8. Health and beauty
    This article surprised me with things that aren't focused upon or associated with when trying to reduce sugar intake. Media sometimes focuses only on a few of these, not all. We all know we should cut back but wow. For example, over consumption of sugars puts one in an increased risk of...
  9. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    DH and I are slacking big time!!! While we are not going out and just blowing money on the movies or bowling and stuff, we are spending money on things we do not really need. Extra grocerys, doing a lot more driving around rather than being frugal about it, getting a book at the book store...

    It really seems like every time I neglect this forum I get way back into debt. This time around is no exception. I've been so busy with writing, keeping up with multiple blogs, running my 4 year old to and from preschool, co-ed softball with my husband, and just general family stuff that I have...
  11. Stockpiling
    At what point do you say, "enough is enough". I started stockpiling a few years ago, and I can't resist stocking up on something when it's at the "magic price", whether I really need it or not. I am beginning to feel that I am feeding an addiction. I worry about the economy, and that makes me...

    OK, so the last few weeks have been amazing cereal deal weeks for me. I now have 24 boxes of "Dionsaur Eggs" oatmeal (my son's absolute favourite!) and 25 boxes of cold cereal (Life and Frosted Mini Wheats). All were under a dollar a box.....some just a few I pennies. I need to go a few...

  16. Adoption
    I know we have a few families here that have or will be adopting -- I heard about this on the news and I wanted to share it. My heart goes out to all those children who will remain in Russia and never have the chance to be adopted by American parents and have a forever family, as well as the...

    I have a soda... problem. We'll just be generous and call it that. I drink it for the caffeine. I drink it because it's cold and I like cold beverages. But it's the carbonation I can't seem to find a way to replace. Any advice?

  20. Frugal Living
    I just thought of this today....when guests visit there are some frugal habits that I stop doing in deference to my guests. It's not that I don't believe in my frugal ways, or that I don't want to be an example of money-saving measures, but it's that I realize that some of my measures are...
