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.

Re: Give me your best TIPS!!!!!!

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.[

Re: Give me your best TIPS!!!!!!

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!
