Re: Daily Check in Sept 11, 2015

Hope all my frugal friends are having a good day. I slept in a bit -- having company for two days wore me out -- and am doing laundry and a bit of housecleaning. Yesterday evening I finally got the two big boxes of family photos from DH's family, my family and our family winnowed down to two small f...

Re: DeCluttering

It only took me six days of tripping over the file boxes to finally get our family photos culled out and organized this evening. It did take me about four hours, but I've been putting it off forever and it feels like a weight has lifted. Now the photos are all in two filing boxes in the den closet. ...

Re: SO to 11catgs2beagles

16 oz. of the vegan egg replacer is equal to 100 eggs, which makes it an amazingly good deal right now. DH bought a dozen large eggs -- just plain old commercially farmed ones -- at Food Lion yesterday for $3.79. He said the cashier actually apologized for how expensive they were.

Maggie would know best because she deals with that stuff every day, but I was extremely displeased with what Windows 10 did to my laptop. It's basically taken every spare minute of the past two days to get it back to bare-bones functioning.

Re: help, need vacuum recommendations

Just recently I realized that the motor on it is wearing out -- it has lost some suction and runs hot...

Re: Daily Check In Sept. 10, 2015

Good morning, frugal friends. I have had a house guest along with computer problems, so yesterday was rather busy. I did the free upgrade to Windows 10, which worked fine for a few days, and then got a terminal error and couldn't access the start menu, which meant my laptop was dead. It turns out th...
