Hi, I started coming here after finding GRS on Orblogs. I thought, I'm HOME!
Years ago I'd read about Amy (eyechart) aka the Frugal Zealot who did those neat newsletters called the Tightwad Gazette. At that time, I proudly considered my decorating style "early American garage sale."
Now, I'm married to a different guy, live in semi rural Coos County Oregon and own my home outright. We're fortunate to have outstanding libraries out here and I consider it my Mecca. Movies, books on tape, never ending booksales and lots of magazines for free (in North Bend), It just thrills me to go in there and see all that stuff.
In Oregon, we pay property taxes to the library, so I figure we should get our money's worth. I started a blog to review the DVD collection and just reached 100 posts the other day. http://orcoastmovies.blogspot.com/
if you like film. Live in Coos County Oregon? Even better. Please get a library card, after all, you pay for it.
Years ago, I used to frequent the Motley Fool Index Fund forum. They started charging to participate and I left. I love thinking about money and how to spend less and still have a good time.
Well, that's it for now. Type at you soon.
