Hey mamaof3 get your groceries at Forks county line store in Middlebury, they have great prices! We hit that store when we go visit my parents.

I pay most of our bills online. So, I just save the return envelopes that come with the bills for my own use. Actually, I just labeled a bunch to use with the envelope cash budgeting system. :)

the middlebury reference caught my eye!

i'm in ne indiana & my best friend lives in middlebury!!! i have family in goshen, new paris, and syracuse

they all love the year-round farmers' market there - have you checked that out? i don't remember the name?? but, anyway, for a flat "member" fee, you can go every month and fill your basket with whatever fresh produce & herbs you want. i undertand that it is WAY cheaper than produce at the grocery, and of course is WAY yummier & healthier too.[

I NEVER thought about that! We pay our bills online too... and I throw out all those envelops :doh:

How do you pay online? Do you go to each website and pay your bills there? Or do you have it set up in your bank acct or your paypal? I just had a big internet fraud on my bank acct and now I"m terrified to do things online. I am also scared to mail out bills because someone can just get the envelopes, take out the checks, and cash them. So what the heck!

I pay all mine through my online bank account. Saves on stamps for sure!
