Introducing myself

seaturtleJune 1, 2008


I have been reading this forum every day for ever so long. I'd like to join you.

a bit about me: I am in Vermont and on SSI. That makes it very hard to manage, but I do manage. I live within my income, never incurred one debt, and own no plastic.

My lifestyle is simple of necessity, I don't drive and walk a great deal, eat simply and cheaply.

I look forward to posting here and getting to know folks.

Thanking you all,

Hi Seaturtle,

My name is Sue. How do you do?

Welcome to the forum and coming out of lurkdom.

I too am retired, though not SS age yet. I live in the country and enjoy veggie and flower gardening...along with my 3 furbabies. I enjoy canning plenty of what I grow for myself and other loved ones.

Hi seaturtle,

Welcome aboard - we hope that you like it here. I'm sure that you feel that you've got to know several of us by now, as you've been lurking for a while.

We hope that you'll post, sharing some of your experiences, from time to time: living frugally will probably provide you with some ideas to offer.

I imagine you've tried the "Kitchen Table" ... there's a lot of talk about general stuff, over there. Much more activity than here ... they'll dance you off of your feet!

Good wishes to you and yours.
