I will sometimes do two orders if I need a separate receipt to be reimbursed. I wouldn't do it just for regular budgeting because it's a hassle to me. I've never had a cashier flinch at doing two...

We have colored towels that match our bathroom. We tried all white  a few years ago, but it didn't really work for me. I like colored towels since we have white walls (military housing and I don't...

I guess I have a differing view. She's their grandparent, and she can give them what she wants. You can strongly urge, suggest, recommend, and hope for a change, though.
 
Really, I'd keep the...

Probably. It's #4. It's almost impossible for me to imagine never having another baby after this one, but I think I'm reaching my personal capacity.

I've had two sets of kids 2.5 years apart so far. (This next one will be 2.75.) I have a double jogging stroller which is great. When my babies were tiny, I just wore them and pushed the toddler in...

If I had to say, I'd say boy at this moment because I am constantly nauseous as I was with my first two dc (both boys) but not constantly throwing up as I was with my 3rd (my dd). I'd kind of like a...

I'm just nauseous a lot. That was my first real signal to take the test. With my 2 sons, I was nauseous, but only threw up a couple of times. With my dd, I threw up daily for months. I think that...

My 24 month old is acting oddly this morning, so I'm wondering if my milk is drying up. She actually got her pacifier out of her bed (she's only ever used it while sleeping) and brought it with her....

I have no idea at this moment. It seems to get a little more difficult each time for dh and I to agree on something.

I haven't told anyone but dh, yet. I'm sure that I'll get some comments since I already get them when out shopping with my three kids--7, 4.5 and 2.

Yes, I return things if I change my mind. I'd never use them and return them (gross!).

We're military, too. The only boxes that I have are the ones for expensive electronics (flat screen TV, large printer, sewing machine). I'd get rid of any others, but that's me.

I keep them in a clear, over the door shoe holder. The little tiny rubber bands/barrettes are in plastic bins inside of that.

When I was a child, my dad was in the military, so it was all public record. Same for my dh now.

We have one of those ugly plastic deck boxes. It's still more attractive than all of the mud covered toys sinking down into the backyard. They're not super cheap, but we're on year 4 with ours, and...

I'd call the IRS and talk to them. I've had to call them a couple of times and found them to be professional and courteous. It wouldn't hurt to ask.

I've gotten rid of almost all of the clothing between each set of babies (someone else needed it/we were moving and didn't want to store it), and it has never been a problem to get...
