Re: Do you buy furniture to last decades?

Have you considered buying a used couch from a store like Goodwill or Salvation Army? Sometimes they have some great stuff. I got a great couch and chair set from one of those places.

Re: Are you buying life insurance and why?

I have it in case I die and DH needs a boost to carry him over 'til the kids move out. DH has it in case he dies and I need (way more than...) a little boost to tie me over 'til the kids move out.

Do you buy furniture to last decades?

When buying furniture, do you buy it to last a reeeally long time, or do you buy it believing that in 10 years your tastes will have changed?

I had a pcp who swore at it, LOL, but there were some others he didn't like dealing with, either. Apparently many are slow to pay. My eye specialist told one of the really big (...

Re: FCL’s Journal of Thoughts

I've read only the intro to his book in the "sneak peek" at Amazon, LOL I will read it, soon. Next I really like Elizabeth Warren. Her two books, "All Your Worth" and "The Two Parent Trap" are really the very best personal finance books I've ever read. When I lived in Pittsburgh for four years, mak...

Re: Is anyone here seeing grocery shortages in their stores?

I intended to post this last night and kept forgetting to. For the first time since I was, probably, in elementary school, we have roadside veggie/fruit stands! And Farmer's Markets!
