It will run for hours unless we open the door, even hitting the cancell/drain button will just make it drain for hours. Anybody have any idea what might cause this? They want 65.00 for the first half hour...

    DH was informed on Monday that there will be cuts made at work. He is one of those being cut, but at least they are giving him a severance package. After 21 years with the company, he is leaving. I just can't believe it and neither can he. We are thankful for the package they are giving him...

    I keep seeing this as a tip on the web, wondering if anyone does it and considers it useful: You put all your clothes in the closet with hangers turned the opposite way. If you wear it and put it back, you get to turn it around the correct way so you can see which you have worn and have not...
  12. Debt Reduction & Money Management

    Our worst fear has come true: The warehouse that DH works for is (with a 99% probability) closing in October. The lease is up on the building and DH's boss believes that the warehouse will be gone at that time. This worries both of us because he's been with this company for years and we've...

    DH was laid off this morning due to staff reductions. We had a feeling it might be coming and so we had really started to watch the spending and put as much extra as we could away. They did give him his vacation time and a severance package so that is definately a plus. We have already worked...

    Marinades are a great way to turn an inexpensive cut of meat into something special! Now don't be thinking you need to run out to the grocery store to get some fancy-schmancy overpriced bottle or package of pre-made marinade, because it's just way too easy to put one together from ingredients...
