  • Can someone please help me with couponing?

    I want to get into couponing because I am a student on a tight budget, and I just saw this amazing show called "Extreme Couponing". Now, I don't want to buy nearly as much as those people, but I was hoping someone could explain a few rules of couponing, such as:

    1) If you have a coupon that is $1/2, can you use 2 of those coupons on 2 items?

    2) If you have 2 buy one get one free coupons, can you just purchase 2 items and get both of them free?

    3) If you have a $3/5 items coupon, can you use manufacturer/ store coupons on the other 4 (out of the 5 total) items?

    4) If a coupon is for $1/1, but the item is on clearance for $0.50, can you use the coupon?

    I know stores have different policies. The stores around me generally allow use of 1 manufacturer and 1 store coupon for the same PURCHASE (this does not mean transaction), but I generally would like to know what to expect. If you can think of other tricky scenarios like those listed above, please explain those too. Thank you!!

  • PLEASE ANSWER. Itching after Gynecologist visit!?

    I just went to the gynecologist last week because I was going to get an IUD in. I had a pap smear about 2 weeks ago (normal, always has been normal) and was tested for STDs and pregnancy because it is required before getting an IUD inserted. After poking around for what felt like forever, my gynecologist told me I would have to reschedule my appointment and take medication to dilate, because I was not open enough in order to insert the IUD. The appointment hurt like hell.

    I didn't have any spotting or bleeding until about 24hrs later when I suddenly had an extreme amount of brown discharge (which was very startling) and a sudden intense itching inside. It has been itching for about 3 days and it feels a lot like a urinary tract infection EXCEPT I'm not in any pain and it isn't nearly as uncomfortable as a UTI. I have had probably 5 UTIs and they have all been extremely painful. Has this ever happened to anyone?

    One thing I recall was that the doctor asked if I was allergic to iodine because they were going to use it, and since I don't have any known allergies I didn't think I would be allergic. Would an allergic reaction cause this?

    Before everyone suggests it, I am going to call my gynecologist in the morning and explain my symptoms, but I wanted to see if anyone else may know what's wrong/ have experienced this. I have an appointment set up with my gynecologist on Thursday already (originally, for the 2nd IUD insertion attempt) and so I WILL get treatment.

    Thanks for your help!

  • HELP! Student in debt needs advice?

    I'm really stressed out and I was hoping someone could (please!) offer some good advice. Right now I'm in graduate school and I receive a small stipend every month that we are supposed to be able to live off of. I'm getting my PhD, so I will be on a $23,000 salary for the next 5 years. I don't know what you think, but for me that is extremely difficult to live off of.

    Unfortunately, I have credit card debt that has piled up since last year and although I have been trying to pay off as much as I can, I feel like I will never be able to pay it off with my current situation. We aren't allowed to have another job because we are supposed to be focusing 100% on our school (which is why they pay us a stipend), so if I want to make extra cash it has to be under the table.

    So this is my question... What would you do? Also, is there any way I can transfer my credit card debt to a student loan because I am technically in school? I only have a few years of credit history so my interest rates are extremely high, and if I could transfer it to an account that won't have interest rates until after school, I could make a huge dent in my debt. I have been selling clothes I don't wear anymore and books that have been sitting on my shelf, but being a student I don't really have a lot of belongings to begin with.

    And no, I don't want to do anything that is illegal or frowned upon, so please try to give me serious answers. Please. I'm really struggling.

    Thanks for your input!

  • Can someone please explain my tax return?

    Im doing my taxes for 2009 and Im confused. I made about 22,000 in 2009. When i first put in the 19,000 I made from one job, I had a federal return of $1,100. When I put in the additional $3,000 (from a different job) my federal return went down to $650. I did "1 exemption/allowance" for both. Why did my return decrease so much??? I don't have any stocks, a house, etc, so just filling out my taxes for the w-2s.

  • How can I make my cat more social?

    Alright, I adopted two kittens about 6 months ago (they are unrelated, both were in separate foster cares). For the first 3 months I took one each weekend to petsmart and had people pet them to socialize them. Now, one of my cats acts like a dog and runs to the door when people come, while the other one hides under a bed. He even runs away when I walk toward him in the house. He is a huge sweet heart in my room, but then runs from me/ everyone in the rest of the house (I guess he isnt as secure). He now has the run of the house during the day, so hopefully that will help, but can anyone else give me any ideas on making him more social? He loves getting attention in my room, but seems too shy and scared of everything when he is out around the house. Thanks for your help!

  • Fish had TB... Now how do I cure the tank?

    I had a molly die recently (about 1 month ago, had it for 2 months). I noticed it was "wasting away" although it continued to have a hearty appetite up until it died. Its poop was normal color, so I assumed it wasnt parasites and that it was just getting bullied. It was probably dead in my tank for about 12 hrs before I noticed.

    Well, I just had to euthanize another molly fish that I only got 2 weeks ago. It showed the same symptoms, so I finally looked it up online and discovered that they both most likely had fish TB.

    Now, my huge question. The fish TB is probably in the water since the 2 fish had no prior contact, so how do I cure the tank so that none of my other fish get infected?? Please help! Thanks

  • Please help me...Sick Molly fish!!?

    I have a white molly that has been looking awful for days. She readily eats the food I give her and searches for things to eat off of the tank like algae, but she is extremely emanciated. Her gills are moving rapidly, and her mouth continues to open and close very fast. Her poop is a normal color and is not stringy. All of the other fish are healthy, and the tank has a normal range of pH, temp, ammonia, and nitrate. I had to do 3 25% water changes in the last 2 weeks because these ranges were higher than normal 2 weeks ago. I gave all of my fish Melafix about a week ago (just to be safe since their water conditions werent adequate), but my molly has continued to look awful. I only got her 3 weeks ago, so she isnt old. Please help! Thanks

  • Help! My Betta fish has a HUGE stomach?

    I just noticed my Betta fish is extremely bloated.. it looks like he swallowed a cheerio. I only feed my fish once every 2-3 days (he is in a community tank) and he looks extremely happy. His scales are not sticking out like a pine cone, he easily swims to the bottom (not swim bladder), and acts normal except that his stomach is disturbingly huge. All of my other fish are healthy also, so does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong with him? And what action i should take?
