  1. Meal planning
    Hi everyone! I just started taking the UX course from Udacity, and I am in the process of creating an application to make meal prepping simpler and more enjoyable. If you struggle to meal prep or just enjoy cooking in general, please help me fill out this quick ~5min survey. I’d really...
  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    So our van situation put us into a huge predicament and as such, we had no other choice than to put the entire thing on the CC. There is no, and I mean ABSOLUTELY NO possible way we could have avoided it. I don't care what any of the "gurus" have to say about it because well, it happened. Our...
  3. Religion
    Okay, first off, let me say that many of you will think, "That Cricket has gone off her rocker!" after reading this post. That's okay--you can think that!! LOL. Remember how last month I was wondering what to wear to a sacred healing circle? Well, it didn't matter what I was wearing--everyone...
  4. Question and Answer
    The one thing that could undo your frugality if you just let go and ran with it? For me it would be buying clothes and accessories. Especially now that I've lost so much weight. I could just really (and have to admit have at weak moments but got control of myself again) go nuts. What's yours?
  5. General Chat
    I was wondering about this just the other day. For me, in most cases it's just a habit now. I still have to work on some things but I'm almost always in the "watching my p's and q's" mindset. I naturally backslide at times, don't mean to ever sound like I'm the perfect, frugal example b/c I'm...
  6. Question and Answer
    Right now it is a struggle to even meet my basic bills -- mortgage, utilities, food, etc. The reason for this? Terrible financial management. I own the fact that I have done this to myself. Like others, when I got divorced I spent money to make myself feel better. I bought coffee out 2-3...
  7. General Chat
    So I was teaching the ladies bible study yesterday and it came up again. We started to talk about our own expectations of ourselves. Kind of like the bar is perfection and anything less than perfect just doesn't cut it, so we end up feeling like failures. In christian terms that is often the...

    I'm at a plateau and it's driving me crazy. I need to get out and walk to get past this, however the roads and sidewalks are so slippery (there is ice everywhere). Hopefully I can start soon.

  10. Lifestyle Articles
    While most of us have heard the urban phrase, “Life’s a drag and then you die”, (yeah, I cleaned that up a bit!), I find that most people don’t really want to believe that. And it’s true. While off course we all have difficult times in our lives, overall life was not designed to be struggled...
  11. Hobbies
    Ds#1 does well at the scrollsaw, but he doesn't enjoy crafts of any type. He would rather read. Dd on the other hand is so crafty. She knows what she wants to do and does it. She picked up quilting very quickly and soon, I plan on working with her on sewing. She just has a gift for...

    I find the weekends the hardest for some reason, but the last 2 weekends, I've been really working hard not to give in to my food cravings and to get active instead. How about you, are the weekends the hardest?
