How to Save Money While Moving House

Get a quote for van rental or the movers, take the lowest quote and call the other vendors again. They'll often lower the price or throw in benefits (like unlimited mileage) just to win your business.

Newbie on Couponing Need Advice

In Forum: Couponing
Believe it or not, there are classes. Keep your ears and eyes open to one being offered near you.   Personally, I don't coupon because #1 - I don't usually buy the processed foods or other products that are featured on coupons and #2 - I...

How old to watch news?

In Forum: School Age Kids
You know my DD is the same age as your son. She is the kind of kid that hates secrets so keeping her from anything - info about sexuality to what she might be getting for her birthday - is darn near impossible. Hubby and I are news junkies. Talk...

Creative and Mostly Free Learning Activities for Little Ones, Need Ideas!

When DD was in pre-school we created her own alphabet book. We did one letter a week and with 26 letters it took a long time to complete.   On the first day of the week, I would draw the capital letter shape on a piece of plain paper. She...

Thinking about options to get new home

1
My mind reels at the blatant waste of money. Supposedly they're making monthly payments on a house that is literally sitting empty - and have been doing so for a year. Let's say the payments are low, maybe $500 a month. In the last year they have...

Trying to conceive after miscarriage

First, I'm so very sorry for your loss. While many, many women miscarry, it is never easy. When you want to conceive, it is devastating.   During infertility treatments, I miscarried more than once. The doctor told me to wait at least one...

Just remember, you get the homeowner's exemption on only one property - the one where you live which is the more expensive house - so the property taxes on your old home will be higher. If you turn the old house into a rental, your property...

Frugal tips that DON'T work for you

Through the hospital where I volunteer, there will be some people going for navigator training. I've thought about volunteering to be one of them, but I'm not sure I could handle being involved in that system in any way. I want nothing to do with...

How to train puppies - advice needed!

1
In Forum: Chit-Chat
We're training our second puppy right now. I have to say we're pretty good at it.   #1 - A puppy is literally a baby. Just like you can't expect a baby to go in the toilet when it is a few months old, realize that a puppy will want to do...

How would you live on $300 month in these circumstances?

1
In Forum: Money Matters
First, the apartment. If your apartment costs between $450-$600 a month, then you're looking to spend approximately 1/2 your take-home pay on just an apartment. That is too much. 1/3 of your income is tight. I like life better when it is 1/4 of my...

What are your family's goals for the year?

Develop the property and settle in.   We're putting in a much needed fence. We'll continue to hit on our priority list for projects around the house. We are going to get cracking on making this place a regular running house instead of being...

If you look at product labels under "ingredients" usually at the end they'll say that the product was colored with common dyes. Typical ones are yellow #5, yellow #6 and red 40.   Yellow #5 / 6 are common food allergens. As a matter of...

violent toddler

Yes, it is a stage. I dealt with it by looking DD directly in the eyes and saying, "NO!" loudly and firmly then I walked away or in other ways refused to engage with her. For instance, if we were in a store, I'd still hold her hand but I...

What's Your Meal Plan Look Like for the Week? ((Mostly interested in lunches. :)))

1
In Forum: Kitchen Chatter
It is a two-fold question. DD makes her own lunch for school. I make lunch for hubby (his co-workers are envious of his lunches). Both lunches have a basic structure to them so there isn't much meal planning needed.   Good for you,...
