  1. Vacations and Travel
    We are going to NH for vacation in June and want to take a day trip to Boston. I would like to take a walking tour along the Freedom Trail, but how can you tell what a good company is? There are so many and the prices vary widely. Also, what else would be good for a family of 6? Are there...

    We are planning a trip in June to San Diego. We are driving from Colorado. We want to go to the San Diego Zoo, the Safari Zoo, and Sea World and the beach of course. I was wondering if any one had suggestions on where to stay or the best place to purchase tickets. This is a big trip for us as...

    When we were there my mom gave me some 9 mm films that used to belong to my aunt (my godmother) who passed away in 1968 when I was 10. Dh took them to a company that would put them onto a DVD. We got it back today and have just watched it. A film about my aunt's last trip abroad before she...

    I'm returning to couponing after about 20+ years. (My 21 year old daughter got me back into it :hugz:). Things have really changed, but some things remain the same: I've tried a few methods, and find that my old method of using a recipe index-card box is the best way for me. I am sitting...

  9. Meal planning
    DH is getting laid off. We've decided to make lemonade out of lemons and pull the kids out of school take the camper on a trip. We have a very small fridge in this thing - think those dorm fridges with a teeny freezer. Suggestions for meals?
  10. Household notebooks and home manuals
    We are attempting to get back in to tent travelling, which we used to do extensively before the kids came along. I have been working on compiling a master packing list based on past camping experience, family road trips, and notes scribbled on previous vacations about what I wished I had. I...

    Ok, well it wasn't extreme in the ways of the "Extreme couponing" show is, but for us it was extreme. We don't typically buy more then 30 dollars worth of food at the grocery store because we buy a lot of bulk things at BJs Wholesale and smaller things at Walmart/Target and produce at the local...

    Today was the day I did my big April grocery shopping trip. I picked up my teen daughter after work and we got started. We made four stops today, BJ's Wholesale club, Aldi, a little local Italian grocery store called Alesci's and a local discounter called Marcs/Xpect. I budget $450 a month for...

Apparently when some of my friends were coming home from Churchill from the Northern Bison exercise (Northern Bison), one of them ran into a bunch of loose wire under the power lines with his snowmobile. He was talking to the Division Manager at work yesterday...

    Did they change the way jeans were sized/made? We had not been shopping for clothes especially jeans for a long while as Little Miss has been wearing hand me downs for a while now. The hand me downs are gone so we had to go shopping. She had outgrown her pants and jeans so we had to go the...

    We just got back from a trip to Montana last week, went to a motorcycle rally at Red Lodge. My father lives about 30 miles from there so we were able to stay with him, which greatly reduced our expenses :crackup:. We rode both bikes up, but I rode as passenger for a poker run so I could take...

    Has anyone ever stayed at or visited the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs? Not frugal at all, but honestly one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Today a couple friends and I took a tour of it and browsed the little shops there. The hotel and especially the grounds are TO DIE...
