  1. General Chat
    I have been reading about this unit on a prepping site and find it quite a useful item to have around for many different reasons that would save alot of money over the years. If you own one please tell me your pro's & con's to why I SHOULDN"T buy one..
  2. Utilities
    Our central air conditioner for the house is about 21 years old, it has been there since the house was built. We are thinking about replacing it but it is hard to take the plunge since it still works. But I think it is really inefficient, of course I guess I don't know for sure. But I keep our...

    I was looking at prices of food for my stockpile online and I was a bit frustrated because there was such a variety of sizes and I wanted to get the best value. I found a unit price calculator! Not only does it give you a price per unit calculation, but you can compare 2 and find out which is...
  4. Homesteading and gardening
    I have 2 units- one upstairs and one downstairs- The upstairs is blowing- I feel the air blowing- the thingamabob outside (can't think of the name) is operating, but no cold air. I did notice that there's no water being pumped out. I hear its the compressor, but hopefully it's something else...
  5. Appliances
    I am looking for one to put in the birds' room. It is downstairs, on the north side of the house. No windows, so I need a stand-alone, preferably one with either a big water reservoir or a good drain hose. In addition, I need one powerful enough to cool a relatively large room (approx 500 sf)...

    in the applesauce thread a poster noticed that the mott's applesauce cups had gone from 4oz to 3.5oz the last time i bought canned tuna at wal-mart, i happened to look at the unit price and although wal-mart's "can" was cheaper, the name brand was less per ounce because wal-mart now only puts...

    We are new homeschoolers and just finding our groove but some patterns seem to be emerging in what style suits us best. I like the idea of unschooling but ds is still in the process of deschooling and really craves guidance from me; after all someone has been telling him what, how, and when to...

    How many of you use unit studies? If you are teaching more than one grade level/child, how do you individualize it to each? Do you set a time frame for completion or do you just "go with the flow"? Stephanie

    We are doing random unit studies this year. Whatever we feel like doing. We just finished today a unit of horses. On monday we will be doing a farm unit that will take us through until Christmas. It should be fun. I am trying to get a field trip planned to a farm as well. I am looking...

    We are doing the Konos Obedience unit and are on the horses part. I am just looking for other things to add to this, as much of the units so far have been for older kids. I have had trouble adapting them to a K and 3rd grade. So I am looking for other fun ways to learn about horses. Has...

    Ok you mentioned that in Egypt. So here you are. This is the reading list. Nope, didn't do a salt dough map of Scandinavia, and the lake was frozen so we skipped that. Nor did we attach Viking horns to any headgear although tempted. Nor did we learn to scratch runes in rocks although that was...

    I was talking to a friend who homeschools, and thought I'd put my list of books here as it was a fun unit and the kids really got something out of it. Why this came up is because years later my adult son went to England and Europe this fall and he says what he brought me home as a gift was a...

    I did a unit price check on tea today.  I'd been thinking for a while now that loose tea was cheaper than tea bags.  It's certainly better quality tea and I much prefer the taste of loose tea.  I generally make my tea in a cup using a one cup tea ball that looks like a spoon with holes in it. ...
