    I started back to school(work for me) this past week. I am now on the roller coaster ride of savings and more savings. Here is my break down. Walgreens will usually have their Arizona Teas on sale 2 for a $1.oo. I will usually buy enough for the whole month. This keeps me from buying pop...
  2. Homesteading and gardening
    So a friend of mine was talking about the things she gardens and it made me interested enough to decide I wanted to try it. Unfortunately for me she lives in a different country then I do, so I am all alone in my endevour. Any ideas, instruction, or whatever would be greatly appreciated. I...

    Got the camper out and am thinking about driveway camping this next weekend. Anyone already have camping plans for the year?

    Well, jury is still out as to if it will set properly...but I am keeping my fingers crossed. Today I made pineapple orange marmalade. Something so simple has made me feel accomplished and very blessed. This is something I have wanted to try for the longest time....and I finally did it. I...

    Seems to be that time of the year again when winter seems to be never ending. And yes, where I am there has been very little snow and the temperature has been pretty warm for winter. But right now I am forcing myself to get things done and myself out the door. Realize once the warmer weather...

    I've been on this forum for quite awhile and have pretty much been more of an observer than a participant. Yall have made me cry, laugh, shake my head in amazement and or delight. And I have learned so much. I'm very quiet and reserved so this is extremely hard for me to bring up and put out...

    Just returned home from my Dollar General coupon day (spend $25 - save $5...do it right, spend exactly $25 & it works out to 20% off everything you buy. That's all those $1 items now costing .80 cents)...My DG lets me do as many 'deals' as I want and I calculate them right to the penny of...
  10. Homesteading and gardening
    Ok. I have a HUGE backyard. But to think of it in terms of a HUGE garden is too much for me at the moment. So I'd like to start small. I have a smaller (already raised bed) about 6 feet wide and 4 feet across. Full summer sun! I live in Colorado Springs, CO. As a first timer what should I...

    My engagement wedding ring is in need of repair. I do not want to loss the diamond as it was from my Grandmother's wedding ring. The ring broke once and I lost the diamond but found it while sweeping the floor. I do not remember it costing a bunch to fix. Well it is in need of repair again...

    Decided we are taking Nels and going away for a couple of days. I think we can all use a break after the events of this past week. Take care everyone and have a safe weekend.

    Is this happening for anyone else? The last few days it's been hit or miss. More often than not, FV won't load at all, or if it does, I can't get past the Forums page. It just hangs. I've cleared my cache multiple times, ran all the programs I have to clean my computer out, and it's still...
  14. Home Environment
    Hi all - I am not great at keeping the house clean. I have a large house (3 bedroom, 2.5 baths, large rec room, large kitchen, living room, dining room) and am single, working full time. I have two cats and two bunnies to add to the mess. I recently started the daily to-do challenge, which has...

    I came across FV somehow and had a spark of recognition. Omg how I wish my current status was all the debt I had. Obviously since I wandered away in 2007 it's been a downward spiral into debt. I've started working on paying down debt, making my own products and keep a few chickens these days...

    Hi Folks. Been a little while since I've posted but have been busy on another writing project. Hard to make the rounds, but I'm always trolling :) For a very limited time, my book will be FREE to download on Kindle devices (as well as iPads, iPhones and PCs with Kindle software)!!!! Just go...

    I haven't posted in quite a few years and was mostly a lurker even then. So been stopping by occasionally to read but not often enough apparently. Hubby's income has went up a bit along with debt. No excuse just stupid stuff. Right now we have around 10k which includes a small car loan...

  19. Question and Answer
    Well my cordless telephone/answering machine is giving out. Atleast the phone part is. I can still get messages. So am thinking of purchasing a new one. The model I currently have is from CVS and was cheap to begin with. When do you think the best time is to purchase a new cordless...
  20. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I paid the remaining balance of my auto insurance in full, rather than do installments. We are now paid up through April!! I probably spent a small fortune in installment fees, and had my insurance cancelled accidentally once when I was one day late in paying. I feel so...responsible! Now, to...
