      mix: means you mix it up and store it until you need it

      imo: in my opinion

      jaw: just add water

      imho: in my humble opinion

      iso: in search of (this is what you write in the subject line
      when your looking for a recipe! it gets my attention quickly!)

      oamc: once a month cooking

      tnt: tried and true (please note the difference between tnt &
      t-n-t)

      t-n-t: tips-n-tricks

      rec: recipe

      oyo: on your own.. (meaning.. i haven’t tried it, and i can’t
      back it up!)

      request: this is an item that someone on list (or the
      budget101.com website requested

      There are many more, but these are some of the most confusing…

      Ok, I’m sure this is a silly question, but what does “DH” stand for? I know it refers to your husband but I can’t figure out what it stands for. Am I just completely computer illiterate?

      Okay. Found this page and I was like “Oh. So there are these kinds of abbreviation, eh?”

      Thanks dear forumers. I’ll try to call my hubby as “DH” when he arrives. Let’s see if he knows.

      haha

      One of my favorite couponing abbreviations is YMMV. I’ve heard it stands for “Your Mileage May Vary” – loose translation: “This worked for me in my store but you may not be so lucky!”

      It means that you must use it “after coupon”. Sometimes you can “stack” coupons, but you have to use them in the right order to get the full benefit of the stack.

      Wow. This was so incredibly helpful! I have seen people write DH so many times and had no clue what they were referring to!

      Now that I read what the abbreviations mean…they make sense.
      Level writing I might add.

      I first saw DH used when reading things by the FlyLady. I can’t recommend her enough – she’s really saved my bacon as far as learning to run my house. She has two books (usually available from the library – look for Marla Cilley) and a free website as well.

      I hope I can remember these. Unfortunately I’m pretty computer illiterate and I have a sick Mom so don’t always have much to time to be on my computer. I love this site though.

      I have a hard time with the new texting abbreviations, so I guess I’ll be adding more post-its to my monitor. It already looks like a yellow frame of information. But in time im sure i’ll have them memorized.

      Thanks for the information.

      :)) It’s been awhile since I’ve been on a forum before. It’s been about 15 years actually. Crazy the internet has been around that long already.

      Well, at any rate, thanks for the tips!! :))

      I’m glad I went to see what the abbreviations were cause I find them confusing sometimes. You would think we text messaging, which I’m horrible at, I would have some idea on things, not the case. Thanks for posting them.

      Thanks! Now I won’t have to call one of my three daughters and ask them what an abbreviation means! Lol!

      But they are used to this common occurance.

      Very helpful info for newbies to the site like me. Reminds me of early days in nursing school, having to memorize all the medical jargon & medical abbreviations, but far simpler! LOL!😜
