Re: I Find This Place After 17 Years!

It's interesting to see "what's in a name." My take had been, "Retire WELL without spending a lot of money," rather than "Retire with your pittance and good luck."

Maybe there will be posts from all types; I can [more]

Re: Down to the Nitty Gritty

We have saved $300 a month on food since I retired, bringing my controlling ways, er, started to help with the shopping and cooking. Little things can really add up! I'd suggest you consider:

1. Learn to cook if you don't know how. You can [more]

Stash Boxes

Hi, I thought I would share a good/cheap way I have discovered to make some boxes for the quick stash/sweep of clutter for when showing the house. They sell various boxes and baskets for this, but I am cheap and also wanted a way to customize them [more]

Re: Paint Color Choice Mistakes

No, you are not the only one with post painting angst.

Re: OT: Paperless medical offices?

In medicine, there is such a relentless volume of work all day that you learn to try to help the patient in front of you, and not waste a lot of time yelping about things beyond your control. I ended up saving my "yelping" for direct battle [more]

Re: To bell, or not to bell... that is the question.

When we had an outside cat, she learned to stalk so well that the bell did't ring, and her critter toll remained the same as before we did it, so it wasn't worth the risk of getting her caught by the collar. We tried several types of bells, thinking [more]

Re: Dilemma

Re: "Free Stuff"?

I tried "Pinch Me" for a short time, after it was mentioned positively in an article here at MF. During that trial of several months, I got 2 free samples, a small package of coffee and some hand lotion. They wanted lots and lots of [more]
