    I have always wondered what other families talk about around the dinner table. What does your family talk about around the dinner table?

    We have a chill in the air this morning. My children go to their drawers and picked out a hoodie or a jacket. After school drop off, I head to walmart. There were a bunch of people there, way more than normal at this time of day. They weren't buying the ordinarily "this is for my lunch"...

    Coupon storage is so important! I tried 3 systems before I ended up with one that works for me. I have the CaseIt 5 inch zippered binder with a 3 inch set of rings and a 1 and 1/2 set of rings(I think it's one and one half). It cost $25. I got it on the case it site. Next I got Avery inserts...

    Who has straighttalk? Did you have problems getting it activated? I purchased straighttalk from WM yesterday, went to have my phone # transferred (from US Cellular) and now I have no service from either provider. How long will it take to get it activated? I went back to WM and spoke to...
  5. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    What do you say? What do you do? How do you manage? How do you discuss rationale? And the bottom line is, how does one manage to avoid ARGUMENT about the reasoning for doing what we're doing and staying on track? Must we sit down every single week and have a printed budget? (Maybe this is an...

  7. Coupons
    What do you find to be big 'no-no's' for couponers, either yourself or others? Some of my personal coupon pet-peeves: -People who 'clear out' all/almost all items on a shelf, leaving none for other bargain seekers -People who do the same with tear-off coupons you find in the store -People who...

    I have started to notice that my cat will cry out when she is sleeping. I noticed this a couple of times. The last time she was under the covers and yelled out. I went to find her thinking she was stuck somewhere only to find her sleeping under the covers. So does your pet talk in their sleep?

    Milk is the item that is increasing the most drastically in price for us right now. This week I paid $4.47 for a gallon of milk, vs. $3.97 last week. I want to switch to a dry milk (at least for my coffee). Does anyone use powdered milk? How much do you mix up at a time? Do your kids notice...

    Hi! I just wanted to let you know about this really good deal that i found at the local walmart shop. The straight talk plan is only 45$ for unlimited texting/calling and there are no contracts so you can leave the service at any time you like. I personally recommend this service as i have...

    A recent trip to Hobby Lobby got me to pondering the finer points of yarn. I have some questions. 1. What's your favorite type or brand of yarn to work with? 2. What does it cost? 3. Have you found ways to ease the sting of the costs of yarn?
  16. Question and Answer
    I have been looking into this prepaid cell service and I would love to get some feedback on straight talk cell phones. Our contract is up in a couple of months and we don't want to renew them because they are expensive. Thank you for your thoughts.

    I posted a few weeks ago about my friend whose only daughter was dying of cancer. Her daughter Holly passed two weeks ago, the funeral was last week. I find I am having difficulty picking up the phone and calling or e-mailing now that the smoke has cleared from the funeral and she's getting...
