Re: Abundance without attachment

IOW, the 'love' of money is the root of all evil?

Re: I lasted three days

I think you're confusing "optimal" with "natural". "Optimal" is probably organically grown non-animal products, wild fish, and wild meat/poultry or ones raised to be as little fatty as possible.

Re: I lasted three days

Very little is natural about the way we eat in modern day America

Well, you can make it more natural by growing produce, buying a whole cow, etc... But that's my thing, I don't really care what anyone else does. I naturally eat [more]

Re: I lasted three days

So are you vegan or vegetarian, DEG?

I think you can be relatively healthy on vegetarian diet without too much trouble, but to me the fact that you require a supplement to be vegan makes me think it is not a natural diet for humans. [more]

Re: I lasted three days

I gave up soft drinks before it was the in thing, because they made me sick

I gave up soft drinks years ago and was amazed to learn they were the cause of my heartburn! Lesson learned.

I can easily be vegetarian for a few [more]

Re: Don't buy unhappiness

Funny that he lists dinner out as a potential addition to happiness, when it mostly seems like wasted money to me (at least if you go too much).

I bought something this week that I think will bring me years of happiness, a stand up mixer! [more]

Re: Just Saved $20 a Month

I've been using local libararies for internet service, mopvies and such since then

I could use the internet at work and on my phone if I didn't do netflix/hulu, etc... I cancelled cable years ago, so it's only internet. When I [more]

Re: Just Saved $20 a Month

I just call and ask for the procedures for disconnecting my service.

I like that.

I wish FIOS would come to my neighborhood. They get great reviews. If they were on par or cheaper than AT&T I would switch in a heartbeat.

Re: Budget thanksgiving

MEK: Since this is LBYM, I will add you can easily make your own bread crumbs.

I live in the south, so we make cornbread dressing. Cornbread is ridiculously cheap to make from scratch.

Re: Budget thanksgiving

Mashed white potatoes is a very cheap dish, sweet potatoes less so

Around here, sweet potatoes are pretty cheap. Probably cheaper than white, especially if you count the butter/half and half that goes into regular potatoes. But then, [more]

Re: How to fix heat-sealed shoes?

I noticed the tip of my boots separating and I really like those boots. Do you think the shoo goo would fix them?

42 Things you can do to Spend Less Money

Most of this is basic for this board, but I like this list because there are a few things I still need to be doing. I cannot quite convince myself to unsubscribe from the stores who send me coupons! Because when I do need to shop, I want to save [more]

Re: Pumpkins Usable?

I have yet to succeed to raise a pumpkin or squash (other than zucchini).

Really? Are you counting summer squash, or crooknecked? Because that stuff is pretty easy to grow, at least it is where I live. And I pretty much have a black [more]

Re: Brick-and-mortar looking better

I think this depends heavily on the store you use. Most of my online orders go through flawlessly, but I would rather return something to a brick and mortar.

I did order something from VS the other day and it took two weeks to arrive, which [more]

Re: When's the best time to buy holiday gifts?

When is the best day to buy a gift card?

One of the ads I saw was advertising 10% off gifts cards on thanksgiving I think?

Retailers are pushing for earlier openings during this year's Black Friday event

I went the last few years, but 5pm/6pm is too early, I think. 8/9pm, you could be sure that lunch was over, turkey was digested, kids in bed (if small), [more]

Re: Rant: We need more guns at home. Right.

So why does the U.S. President (any President, not just the current one) offer condolences on behalf of our Nation, in response to tragic events?

Politics, mostly. And I don't think it's 'inappropriate', but the president only weighs [more]

Re: Rant: We need more guns at home. Right.

Don't you think there is a difference in a personal expression of sorrow to someone you actually know and lives in your town, as opposed to these form letters and twitter comments from organizations?

I find those rather shallow and useless [more]
