  1. Yes. It's so much more fun to move in than to move out. There's usually Walmart/Target or Amazon if needed.
  2. Your plan is sensible and wise. I hope this coming holiday season brings you peace and joy!
  3. This is an update to an old thread. Rachel Meeks was, hands-down, my favorite blogger. Her post "Holding on to Sentimental Things" resonated with me as my siblings and I worked through all of the things my mother lovingly saved for us. I have checked in from time to time for a few years now, hoping for an update on success in her cancer treatments or a new post. Sadly, she passed away on Easter Sunday this year. May she rest in peace...
  4. Dh and I have bought/sold four houses and I loathe dealing with realtors. I do have a couple of friends who are in the business, and they are lovely people, but I think they are overpaid. It's hard to get around their system. In TX, licensed realtors have the MLS mostly locked down, so potential buyers are hard-pressed to learn about comparable pricing. Locally (and perhaps further afield), realtors contractually represent both the seller AND the buyer. Common sense tells me that this isn't possible. I think the whole model needs an overhaul.
  5. Can you haul it out to the front curb and put a "free" sign on it? We did that with my mil's old piano, and someone took it within the hour. (The guy was a music teacher, and I couldn't believe he wanted it. I thought it was beyond tuning.)
  6. I second Mod Cloth. Super-cute, often retro-style. They look young and fresh!
  7. Does anyone have ideas about things to do apart from the hanging out on the beach -- AL or FL Gulf Coast? A few years back, we went to the airshow at Pensacola NAS, which was wonderful (though bad weather cut it short). Has anyone visited other cool museums or found fun activities? This group would include grandparents and my immediate family, youngest of whom will be 18. We will have to go mid-August, between summer and fall college semesters. (How I miss the days when we made our own schedule! 😊)
  8. REI! I hadn't thought of that. I will definitely be at the Court of Honor for this young man. He and his mother are so dear to me. Thank you!
  9. Does anyone have suggestions for gifts for a 17-year-old new Eagle Scout?
  10. Great suggestions, y'all! Thank you!
  11. No trademarks involved. I was looking for an ordering service anyone could use. We will order 50-70 shirts (for a youth group). Thank you!
  12. Has anyone had good experiences ordering custom tee shirts for a group? If so, which company did you use? If you can remember anything about prices/quality and turnaround time, that would also be helpful. Thank you in advance.
  13. We have ordered a number of things, from occasional chairs and a bench, to a large area rug. I've been so pleased with everything. They have a great return policy... so easy!
  14. Thank you for the help! Happy tax day tomorrow, everyone!
