    So I went to the produce auction today. I am canning tomatoes as I type this. I have 15 pecks of romas to take care of. I couldn't resist buying 2 pecks of heirloom yellow tomatoes as well - they were only $3.50 a peck and they are just so pretty. What would you do with them? I am not sure...

    We live in a low rise apartment building. It is in a nice neighbourhood, near shopping centres, parks and schools. And the price we pay for rent can't be beat in this area...or anywhere else in the city for that matter. The only problem is our landlord. He is cheap. There are many issues in...

    Ok, I so rarely find myself unable to make a decision, but I need input from like minded folks. My hope (yes, just a hope at this point) is to buy my own place this summer when my lease comes up. I miss having my own place, growing my own food and just generally not having people above me...

  10. Coupons
    I've used coupons for a while, but never consistently and never as a goal. So I emailed a couple of my favorite brands and they sent me coupons I can't find online or in flyers (:cheer4:). So my question is, if it is an item you buy all the time do you pair a sale with the coupon - or do...
