Re: Affording a Family in the Last Days

I can attest to the fact that communal house sharing works. We bought our home and share it with my husband's parents and grandmother. They pay us a small rent and we all help each other with cooking and cleaning (with everyone having a handful of "assigned chores," except for Grandma...she is getti...

Free Online Courses

Hey guys! Just thought I would let you know (in case this hasn't been mentioned already)... Fee.org has free online courses about economics, in case anyone wants to learn more about it. I took the "Booms and Busts" course and it was informative and entertaining. Not too hard to follow either. The li...

They sell the 5 gallon bucket of raw, unfiltered honey for $150 (about $2.50 a pound)! It is sourced from only local (UTAH) beekeepers. They also have beekeeping equipment, which is re...

I really don't care as long as it stops at dressing rooms and bathrooms. They all have their individual stalls. If you go shopping at H&M they just have a huge dressing room for all genders, and everyone gets their own private space. The only caveat is that I guess you can't exit the dressing ro...
