Have you ever done anything (parenting, household, or otherwise) u learned from the Duggars?

I just negotiated a hotel room for the 1st time in my LIFE and was shocked as f#ck it worked. Jim Bob said they do it all the time so I just said what he says "is that the best you can do, can't you do any better"? and holy cow the total bill went down $80 (staying 2 nights, $40 a night) ... now if only I was debt free.....

  • The Duggars are a family that have 19 children and yes the mother delieved them all herself :) They are very religous, they homeschool the children and the girls wear dresses and have long hair. They have a TV show on TLC tuesday nights at 9.

    I love them and i try to parent my kids the way they do they really inspire me to be a better mom and a better christian and i have uses some of their recipes too.

  • I haven't tried that on hotels , but I have done it . For ex. our T.V the box was kinds messed up , so I asked the sales guy if he could give us a discount for the banged up box, he agreed to 10%. I asked him if that was the best he could do and he ended up giving us 20% plus I secretly had a coupon for another 10% off...I got a pretty good discount in the end! this economy...hey it doesn't hurt to ask! BTW, I do admire the Duggar's parenting skills, I think they are great parents!

  • Wow. 19......... More power to her is all I've got to say to that.. LOL

    I haven't had cable/satelite in nearly 15 years, lol, so that's probably why I haven't really heard of them.. I mainly stream and predominately watch: foreign films, most tv programs I view are Korean or Indian, documentaries and the like..I've never been a "reality" tv viewer.. Well not much of a "tv" viewer in general.. lol

    Man.. If they are able to live comfortably, and fully support a family that size.. They must be doing something right in regards to their finances :-)
