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?

Re: Black Fri-week?

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: Squirrels

I have never seen an aggressive squirrel but I don't feed them.

I did have a baby squirrel that I rescued from my curious cat nosing around my foot. I generally hate squirrels but it was kind of cute. I even took pictures. Then everybody at [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]

I don't see the NRA expressing even one bit of sympathy

As mentioned, the NRA has a whole child safety education program. I am sure they, and everyone else who owns, would encourage everyone to be responsible about it so tragedies [more]

How young? There is a world of difference between 3 and 8.

I haven't seen any studies on this, although I think one of the dateline type shows did a goofy show where they hid candy guns in the ground or [more]

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

Expecting parents who don't own guns to teach their kids about gun safety is as realistic as expecting urban parents to teach their kids safety around large-farm machinery. If you're not around it and don't see/deal with it, you can't teach it. [more]

most people just aren't victims of crime

I don't think this is probably correct, if you count stealing, but I will agree that 'most' people aren't the victim of violent crime, but a hell of a lot of them are.

If a friend's visiting with their kid, it's not exactly my responsibility to teach them about gun safety

I'm not saying it is. I am saying, as a general thing, that people should teach their kids about gun safety.

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

The odds of having a friend's child over and getting ahold of your gun is zero if you secure it properly.

That's why safes were invented. And a small child should not be able to get to a gun hidden high up either, whereas an older [more]

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

I personally think a person has a greater chance of being a victim of crime when they're out on the street - so do these same people carry a loaded weapon on them when they're out?

Many people do, actually. CCL's are very popular. [more]
