Peggy, we are not far apart at the moment. I am in Wilsonville, though I will soon be moving to Vancouver to help my son. I get to Oregon City every so often. Thanks for the welcome guys.

Hi Marla, I'm your industrious leader, but on the road right now. So, I'm slow in responding. We're in Oregon City for the summer. Where are you located? Anyway, glad to have you on board.--PJ


Laugh out loud, it's healthy-- Peggy

Thanks for the welcome guys. Awesome to see you here Sheila. I have always been frugal and green to a point, reuse of things was one I used clear back to the 1970's. Right out of high school I married and moved to the far north of Alaska, there I learned to put up my own food for winter, had awesome gardens, and made almost everything. I also learned to shop once in the spring and again in the early fall for food and supplies. About a year ago though, I decided I could take it a step further, so I have really stepped up my green and frugal living. I also like to save the money I get from rebates, ect for travel.

Welcome, Marla. My niece lives in Portland. Oregon is one of the most beautiful places I've been. I'm like Sheila, have been trying to live green and lean since the 1960s. It's wonderful to have companions on the way.

Hi Marla!
Lovely to see you here - I think very carefully about everything I buy too - but tend to go for the cash-backs, loyalty bonuses etc - and then those savings go into my FunFund for my travelling and day-trips to vineyards and other fun places

Also try to be as green as possible - since the 1960s! in fact

My name is Marla and I try to be frugal and green. I often go weeks without spending a dime, except for food. About a year ago I started on a quest to really go green and to really cut my expenses for everything. I know we live in a consumer society but the only way to change that is by changing ourselves, one person at a time.
