I don't know of a chat time, but we look at this board about every day, and communicate here really well - I am a sahm of 3 children myself, and we are getting over my dh being laid off and out of work for alomst 10 months, moving from one state to another, selling and buying homes, and starting to get out of the morass we were in. Post some specific questions, and I KNOW you'll get some great ideas from the ladies here!

Hi I am fairly new to this board also, but I am recently retired and have had my income cut to 1/3 of what it was. So I need to hang around here and see what I can do to improve my plight. One of the best things I have done is to do menu planning very seriously and try to do the shopping around what I have in the pantry, freezer, and frig. I know that most people think they are being frugal but there are always ways tocut corners even further.
