Re: So much spam!

I just have to wonder the IO of a person who targets frugal people to try and scam for sales. Maybe they could market ice to Eskimos or birth control to cloistered nuns. At any rate, I so wish they would drop off the face of the earth. Jackie, you and Erin do a great job ridding us of these leeches...

Re: Free Fruit?!

I don't know if you have a dehydrator or not, but my favorite way to use crabapples is to make crabapple candy.

Re: Five Frugal Things You Did This Week

I feel like I haven't been really frugal lately, but I have done ok. 1. Ate from the garden. I've been harvesting tomatoes, peppers, green beans, basil, cukes and lettuce. Also, I've been using garlic from this year's harvest (have just used up last year's harvest, so my planning was perfect). 2. Ha...

Re: Antique Mall Booth- 1st Paycheck

Everything but the house is a good one. That's my favorite. You look at auctions online, bid on the items you want, and get an email letting you know which items you won. You can either pay online or cash/check in person. You pick it up usually the day after the auction ends. You have to pick it up ...
