I checked them out! I'll probably follow the saving money one more LOL since the other would be hard for me to copy! I tried to post a comment and it wouldn't let me..not sure if it's the computer I'm on or what... :-( bummer!

good luck with your entire goal, esp the cigarettes..it's amazing how one little hobby/habit can add up big time! I'm gonna try planning menus and freezing meals for when I'm working and stop buying so many books and things.

arghh..my mom's calling 'lunch' then I have a 4 hr drive ahead of me... but good luck and I'll check back!

well one forum has a place to comment but the other doesn't! just wanted to post good luck! I'm curious to see how the water saving ideas work for you! right now my water/sewer/trash is included in my monthly  homeowners dues but I try not to waste it regardless. I try to wash a full load of clothes and full dishwasher if I use the dishwasher..sometimes I just wash them by hand. funny we use the same shampoo! I like the smell of the Aussie but also have some suave I buy in a different scent each time. it works well for me and is pretty cheap at walmart. shampoo lasts me for a while even though I wash my hair fairly often...it's just me using it!

I wish I lived close enough to work to walk or bike..distance-wise I could probably bike but traffic was way too heavy where I live and it's just not safe (the area where I work and where I have to drive through , esp for the hours I would be traveling). I've debated getting a bus pass but they didn't extend the hours and busline down far enough because where I work is at the county line. it would be at leat a mile walk through a not-so-good area and in the dark most of the time IF the bus ran that late to the closest stop. I wouldn't mind a nice 15 min walk - get my exercise- but just not worth the risk. don't think there's enough interest (at least not yet) for my job to offer a shuttle from the bus station - we have a major park and ride just up the road a bit. but we have different shifts here. I'd love to ride the bus to work and be dropped off right where I need to be with nor worries about traffic or anything.
