  1. Southwest Pals
    Dear All: I am considering moving to Red Oak, Texas in the next three months or so. Have any of you FV'ers lived there? What is it like? Where are the closest cheapest grocery stores, dry cleaners, theatres, etc? What about the ethnic markets + organic markets? What about the closest/best...
  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    We've done this before. We've taken in ESL students. Twice it has backfired on us. Not sure if we want to try a third time. The first time a man came and his wife lived elsewhere. It lasted all of three weeks and he was gone. The second time was a young lady who was supposed to stay just...
  3. Homesteading and gardening
    My comment is somewhat physiological. Utilizing the bounty of Summer for off season use is the aim. People preserve produce and the product is only desirable for short periods. I know a lady who has a basement with many jars of preserves that never get used. They preserve (keep) but are...
  4. Careers
    As I am helping my eldest start his career path, I find myself wanting a change. I don't plan on working out of the home until the youngest is in at least 6th grade, but preferably 7th. I'm currently homeschooling, but plan to have them return to school. She is currently going into 3rd...so...
  5. General Chat
    My dh and I have been thinking about buying a generator. We have only lost our power a few times but now that we have a stockpile of perishable food we would be in big trouble if we lose power to the freezer and extra fridge. Does anyone have a generator and are they worth it? Thanks!

  7. Frugal Living
    Topic free - thoughts and questions I love free things but lately I have been thinking about the cost of free. You know "No such things as a free lunch" there is a cost so who is paying it? My kids can go to the summer food program at school and get a free lunch. The tax payers are paying...
  8. Pacific Northwest Pals
    any thoughts, suggestions or information would be wonderful. I'm an 44 year old RN who has lived in the midwest (Missouri/Kansas) my entire life. Recently divorced and I would love an adventure and the northwest coast of Oregon just looks so beautiful to me.

  10. General Chat
    I was thinking when I was growing up I was poor, but didn't know it until someone pointed it out to me. I grew up did okay (money wise mental health wise not so much) and was doing ok. Money was pretty good when my ex got a job in the trucking industry. Then the financial crisis hit and he was...
  11. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    So early last year, I had some pretty extensive dental work done (removing old root canal, temporary crown, new root canal, new crown) and our dental insurance paid very little of it. They paid approximately 300$ towards everything and we paid $1200ish. Since my work does not offer dental...
  12. Money challenges
    Me & DH spent the past year selling/buying a house, moving, and settling in. I'm ready for a new year. I have a temporary job starting that will last through approx August 2011. I want to be mindful of every cent I earn from this job :skept:. I'd like to use it to reduce our debt as much as...

  15. General Chat
    I've been contemplating opening an online store on etsy.com. I would like your opinions on whether or not you think my images would be marketable and sell. I don't want to jump into anything I am not ready for, so please be honest with your thoughts. I am posting a link to an online album so...
  16. Health and beauty
    the Holidays are over. Healthy-eating-wise, that is. I have been making dishes all week and freezing them for T-day. Just sides and pies, etc. It is making me soooo hungry for something rich and sinful! :angel: And then after that's over (and the leftovers are eaten up), I will begin...
  17. Holidays-Special Occasions-Celebrations
    My parents have given us their house to live in for the past four months and I want to give them something. They have had a really rough year; my mother's mother died this spring and my father's mother is in the hospital right now. They had to cancel two vacations this month - a weekend in...
  18. Home Decorating
    As much as everyone seems to hate it, I'm thinking about putting up wallpaper in a few places. Sometimes in an older home, walls just aren't perfect anymore and wallpaper hides a lot of defects. I want to check out some of the new paintable wallpapers - they are basically just a textured...
  19. Careers
    I've been home for 6 years now, and as much as I like being away from the stress of working, I'm really bored. I know when we move into the new house in the fall that I will have a ton of projects to distract me, and maybe I'm just noticing the boredom more now because there is so little to do...
  20. Military Families
    I'm researching the possibility of competing for a direct commission into the US Army Medical Services Corps. The MOS 72A (Nuclear Medicine Science Officer) is my goal. Right now I do not have the education required for this job. If I accepted a commission in 72D (Environmental Science...
