  1. Home Environment
    ~I've been in love with tiny homes and cottages since I was a little girl. My sister and I had a playhouse that was actually a real, tiny home a neighbor had lived in. I heard about Tumbleweed homes here on FV and now I follow the Tiny House Blog. I spend waaaay to much time looking at and...
  2. Dave Ramsey
    So DH and I have been delivering phonebooks for extra cash when we saw an adorable tiny house for sale... I looked it up and it turns out it is an incredible deal for the area, nicely renovated, and on a double lot (so can sell part of the land or build a bigger house later), and it is in a...
  3. Home Decorating
    Check out the space saving ideas in this tiny apartment. Also, she cleverly painted over parts of a painting she didn't like. I never thought of doing that.
  4. Homesteading and gardening
    I have recently become 'hooked' on the Nalleys' Elite Cukes.........and would like to grow my own. They are a nice TINY little cucumber. Would love to pickle some. Has anyone seen these seeds? Have you tried them? If you have tried them,......which one?.......what sort of luck did you...
  5. Home Environment
    I have a subscription the Canadian House and Home, and this month's issue had the most adorable idea for a front closet (the closet by the door, not sure if that's what everyone calls them). I looked through their website but couldn't find any pictures online so will have to just describe it...

  9. Green Living
    Just what can one person do to help make an impact on the world? I'd be fooling myself if I thought that my tiny choices really made a difference.....but what if everyone made tiny choices? You don't have to drive a hybrid to "save the world" (although I'd love to!) - lots of small things make...
  10. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    So I opened a savings account today to accumulate my EF...I started by putting $100 in it. It has no bank card attached to it, so the only way I can access it is to travel to the bank and line up for a teller. Which I plan to do every pay day to deposit more. It was the weirdest thing...I was...
  11. Frugal Living
    I saw this, this morning onour local news. I guess it has become a new trend in areas with extremely high property taxes. I think it is awesome! DH and I both grew up on farms in huge, rambling farmhouses and decided when we bought a house that we wanted something small and cozy. We...

  14. Frugal Living
    You all know about my heat saga. Well, $460 later the furnace is repaired and blowing nice and warm. I keep thinking about how I paid for it and get a little rush. I only had to take $270 out of my emergency fund, as opposed to the entire amount, because I have been pretty careful with my...
  15. Frugal Recipes, Leftovers, Budget Meals
    I bought some tiny pork chops last week because they were on sale (50 cents a piece) but now that I'm actually getting ready to prepare them for supper they almost seem too small and I don't know what to do with them. I was going to just make rice and broccoli and bake the chops, but I'm...

  19. Success Stories
    So I'm finding it very hard to be frugal. Spending on clothes used to be my hardest spot (now its fast-food but thats a different story!). So yesterday I let my ferrets out and noticed that their water bottled (made from an old pepsi bottle and a had finally given up the ghost...
  20. Pests
    I have a lot of tiny ants in my bathroom. There were only a few yesterday and now there are over 40. I think they are coming from tiny cracks in the floor or walls. I put two ant traps down and they are swarming those. I wondered if anyone knew of a good product preferably a natural one for...
