  1. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Thought I would start this up! Hope you don't mind madhen. :) Didn't waste any money today. :)
  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    New month!! New chance to not waste money!! What did you buy just because you wanted it, not because you needed it? How much money did you spend on little luxuries, or googaws, or fast food, that could have gone toward savings, debt reduction, or other things that could change the quality of...

  4. Money challenges
    This is an area I really need to work on. Wasted food is wasted money. I may as well take a few dollar bills out of my wallet and toss them in the trash can each week. So I'm trying to be vigilant with either eating, repurposing or freezing leftovers and not over purchasing produce. My plan...

    What did you buy just because you wanted it, not because you needed it? How much money did you spend on little luxuries, or googaws, or fast food, that could have gone toward savings, debt reduction, or other things that could change the quality of your life in a material way? If your purchase...

  8. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    What money did you spend today that wasn't essential? What did you buy instead of applying that money toward savings or debt? Just a little thread to maintain our awareness of where all that money goes (or doesn't go). As for me: 10/01 - no wasted money!! 10/02 - $22.95 on a pawprint...
  9. Kitchen Basics
    ~Yesterday I threw out a cup of microwave popcorn and more chex mix crumbs. Ds also wasted very small amounts of tea, oj and yogurt.~
  10. Kitchen Basics
    I wanted to do this again this week, since one of my challenges to myself is to waste less food and use what I have before I buy more! The only thing I've thrown away was some brown rice and popcorn seeds that had worms! YUCK! I do have fruit salad in my fridge that is not going to last much...
  11. Kitchen Basics
    So we have a thread for wasted food accountability. Well how about those "nice saves" we've done. Here's mine so far this week. Some cooked chicken that was about to go bad turned into chicken and dumplings. Two bell peppers that were starting to get less than crispy turned into a pork stir...
  12. Kitchen Basics
    ~Someone started a thread like this last year and I found it very enlightening and habit changing when I started to record what I was throwing away. So today I cleaned my freezers and had to toss 1/2 lb of cooked pork that had been freezer-burned and a container of really old leftover baked...
  13. General Chat
    ~I saved up my juju and got an Arcade Pass but it's a huge disappointment. Not only is it temporary(expires 7/4/08?!) but I can't seem to win any juju now that I have it. Are my settings incorrect or something or is the pass just super lame?~
  14. Green Living
    I am LIVID! I got into my work today. (I work in research and a big big hospital in Boston) It looked like someone broke in. There was paper shrewn out on the floor... but I noticed that EVERY printer of this office has paper spit out of it. Reams of paper. What ever was IN the printer was...

    Here is a site that is part blog, part journalism devoted to the research of wasted food in America and the fact that the number of those who cannpt afford decent food grows. I thought it would make interesting reasing here: http://www.wastedfood.com/about/
  16. General Chat
    I didn't do ANYTHING constructive today. Well, I did send out one resume online and call my doctor and find out all my tests came out normal. She's going to change my prescription for anti-depressants to one that WalMart has for $4, since it will cost me over $100 on my prescription plan for...
  17. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I was recently reading a frugal living book and the author pointed out that most people waste 10% of their monthly income. If they would just find the 10% and apply it to debt, they would be debt free much faster. I was very skeptical---I thought, we're very buttoned down as it is. There is no...
