Sure, I could live in a big house by Ernest Primeau
But why would I need a mansion when there's all the maintenance and taxes. In Florida, there are no property taxes associated with living in a camper trailer. There's just me and my pets so why a big house. I can take the savings and have my money manager invest the rest. Winning! Ernie

Early Xmas! by KenK
Was in Walmart on a grocery and other items trip yesterday (10/5) and found a huge Xmas area. Lots of trees and aisle after aisle of decorations, etc. Seems early, even for Walmart, but it may have happened last year too. Haven't noticed Xmas ads in the local paper but I skip almost all the...

It didn't used to be a problem but, for me, it has been now for several years. Finding a decent electric razor for male face shaving under $100. The ones I've purchased don't cut well or the shield over the blades develops a hole in under a year, with replacement shields unavailable locally or,...

Milk jug cover by [email protected]
I'm not sure whether you'd call this "frugal living" or just "shopping" generally. In the event that people don't know what a Milk Jug Cover is (also applies to Sugar Bowl Covers) I'll fill you in. Back in the good old days when Queen Victoria reigned over an empire on which the sun never set,...
