Re: OT? Funeral Home payment

My mom died last month. Before the funeral home would do anything, it had to be paid in full.

Thank GAWD for high limit CCs.

I remember it was the same for my dad in 2005.

HTH,

In the last 4 weeks, have paid [more]

Re: "Group" gifts (a rant)

Long ago, when I was pregnant with my first, I registered at Target. Now I knew that I had over 20 receiving blankets already - both my mom and my MIL had saved them from when we were babies. So I deliberately didn't register for them.

Re: Buying a Used Prius vs New Nissan Versa

I bought a Versa new in 2011. I love my new car (compared to my previous Camry).

I commute about 30 miles round trip to work. I get about 32-35 mpg (depending on how much I have loaded into the car). My family of 4 can travel in it with 1 [more]

Re: Flooring

Currently have hardwood in kitchen, dining, and all bathroom. Easy to clean - we have 2 kids and 2 (soon to be 3) dogs. Looks good and we know if we are still here in 15-20 years, we can refinish to refresh its looks.

My mom and sister have [more]

Re: Poor wee man

For those with young kids still trying to learn: keep it up. I have a 10 and 13 year old and we were the mean parents early on. Sometimes it meant leaving the restaurant/store and sitting in the car. It is hard work.

But now, my kids are [more]

Re: Shopping for a new kitchen sink

Wallpaper over textured paint.

Worst. Idea. EVER.

My knuckles are crying just remembering that...

The master bedroom had triple layers of borders around the room. That was bad too.

Re: Shopping for a new kitchen sink

Another example of marketing improvements based on ripping out "perfectly good stuff" includes pulling the large floral wall paper on the hallway walls, that made you feel smothered by flowers, and the prison bar wallpaper in the kitchen [more]

Re: Poll: If I were a rich man…yabba dibby dib

This will be happening soon for me, due to a terminally ill family member (and I know how much the windfall will be because I have financial POA and I have a copy of the will.)

Re: Deep in Stuff

Yes, I am. Moving 4 times in 15 years of marriage has helped. And Goodwill is within walking distance for me...very handy. It helps that I'm not sentimental.

I am in the midst of cleaning out my mother's house. I have managed to get 1 [more]

Re: Correction

I love my Nissan Versa. 3 years old, 50K miles. Lots of room when I pull the backseats down for cargo.

Re: Downsizing advice? (Long)

Having moved relatively recently (downsized from 3K to 2K square feet) here are some tips:
