    I've been wanting to Board & Batten for a long time now. I fell in love with all the rooms that have been re-done in it, and posted allover the net recently. But along with my long list of "wanna-dos, that goes along with my tight budget, I kinda put it out of my thoughts at least for now. But...

    My son is getting into Legos. I got him a Lego set that was original $19.99 retail. It was still brand new in the box and after I got all discounts it was $7! I am saving it for Christmas. Then I got this awesome wooden barn playset for his preschool teacher for Christmas (he will be at the...

    First off I talked to my credit card company and they are working with me to get my card paid off so I am ending up with a 6% payoff as opposed to the 23% or whatever crazy thing I was paying before. Also, I have a second job as a nurse. I only work there like once a month. Well they called...

    A few days ago I noticed a painful swelling on my left side. Sometimes it hurt nonstop, sometimes just when I touched it. I couldn't lay on my belly and my pants put enough pressure on it to make them uncomfortable. I already had an appointment for Tuesday with my doctor, so I let it ride till...

    Well we got our home equity loan paid off with our tax check! Plus we ended up having enough left for my stepdaughter to go to the eye doctor and get new glasses and we had enough to pay house taxes, car and house insurance, license plates also! With all our credits we ended up getting more back...

    Folks, I'm so happy and excited, I just had to post about this - I finally passed my driving test about two hours ago! It was my fourth attempt thanks my uncontrollable nerves :rolleyes: The cost was seriously mounting up; I've been paying for lessons for almost a year, it is £175 each time to...
  8. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Long story short, our taxes skyrocketed last year due to our new elementary school being built coupled with one town pulling out of our district. Just got latest tax bill, and heard we did finally get state funding to help with school.....our taxes are going down almost $1100 a year, and if I...

    For Dh that is! He starts his new job tuesday! We have been waiting a long time for this. He actually was called to interview for this job back at the very end of April and never got to the interview because the floods in May put 10ft of water in the place he will be working so they shut down...

    My cell phone got wet at some point, began shutting off randomly, usually right after I sent out a text or right as someone sent me one (so I wouldn't know they were calling/texting). What a pain! I am in no mood to spend $50-200+ on a new phone, even after their rebates and such it's expensive...

  16. Laundry
    So I bought and moved into my grandmother's old house in January. She left all the draperies and window treatments. In the living room she has a very elaborate window treatment - lined drapes on top of lace curtains, and on top of that are some half-circle drapes. There are 5 windows in the...
  17. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    And its big! (well, bigger than I expected!). So now I'm debating what to do. I don't know if my will power is strong enough. Its exactly half of whats left of student loan#1. Do I put the whole thing on it (of course, thats the good thing to do). Or do I take a hundred or so out for a treat and...
  18. Secondhand Shopping
    A couple months ago I found ice skates for all of my kids and myself for either $10 (new) or $5 (used) at the Salvation Army. There weren't any in dh's size, so he'd been renting (between $3-$5 each time), which isn't very economical. Today I was meeting up with a friend that lives near the SA...
