Re: Pick ONE Grocery Store

Well, Aldi's is my first choice for price and quality, but...it doesn't have some things. I usually go to Aldi's and then go to Walmart for what I can't find there. If I truly could go to one and only one spot, it would have to be Walmart, which is pretty good on price, convenience, and quality but ...

Re: Holiday extra costs. Are you spending more this holiday season?

Well, I'm with ChristmasTrees in that I love Christmas and everything about it. I'm sure I spend a little more on food, but what with "free food" via dinners, etc., it probably isn't much.

Re: Would You Open Your Door to a Stranger?

I probably would have done what you did, but here is a true story: my husband, when he was in Bible college and on the BB team, left on a 2-day trip with the team with a light jacket. Temperatures fell considerably while he was gone. When he got back, at 2:00 a.m., he left for home, a 25 minute driv...

Re: Five Frugal Things You Did This Week

Penny's at 1/2 off clearance price and used a $10/$10 coupon. The or...
