year

  1. Frugal Living
    It's been sooo up and down here in Michigan. 80s in March, freezing cold in April. I've had it, no more heat. Yes I hate the cold but I also hate the heating bills. No, its not so bad the pipes will freeze or anything but seriously. Bring on summer, bc the a/c won't get turned on either!
  2. Camping, RV's, Trailers, Outdoor Living
    Got the camper out and am thinking about driveway camping this next weekend. Anyone already have camping plans for the year?
  3. Secondhand Shopping
    Went to the children's consignment sale in our area. Cheapest thing is $2 and some people want way more for their items. $20 for a dress that is not really a name brand. Still people come early and really shop til the drop. Buying huge laundry baskets of things. They do have nice stuff...

    Since my wife and I bought our home in 2009, our family has had two new additions. The house is about 1500 sq. ft and we are quickly pushing the limits in the house for space. Aside from having minimal closet space, our youngest two (Easton & Brystol) are sharing a room. I know that's not the...

    Some of you know that a little before Christmas this past year, my youngest daughter T. was diagnosed with cervical cancer. This was a huge shock to all of us. She is 23, she has never missed a yearly check up. Regardless of having the normal girlie tests done every year, she had gone from...

    Seems to be that time of the year again when winter seems to be never ending. And yes, where I am there has been very little snow and the temperature has been pretty warm for winter. But right now I am forcing myself to get things done and myself out the door. Realize once the warmer weather...

    Maybe some folks read my thread started on Jan 20th called 'it's turning into quite a year already'. I now have a follow up. I have decided that damage control is going to be the mantra for this year. February has - I admit - not been as bad as January but we do still have half of the month...

    I talked to a friend of mine and told her that my stepdaughter was a Jr. she said "start saving now for her senior year! I would save at least a grand. That's not counting pictures!" wow! That is crazy but probably true. So I just wanted to warn those of you that will have seniors soon, start...

    Earlier today, I received a call from DS#3 who was in the next town over visiting his GF. She was driving and the stop light turned yellow so she began slowing down to stop in anticipation of the light turning red. The guy behind her must was not paying attention because he rear-ended them...
