Weekend Round-Up for 6/17-6/23


Three weeks down, how many more to go? Who knows? As long as we can keep bringing you easy, delicious recipes, useful, simple tips, and the comics that go with them, maybe we can go on forever. Or at least a long time.

Have you tried any of the six recipes that we’ve posted so far. I have, and they were great! Have you started utilizing any of our savings tips? Hope so!

I did well with this past week’s Weekly Challenge. I used a list every time I went shopping. At first, I didn’t think it was even necessary to mention using lists as one of our tips. It seemed so obvious. Then I was talking to a cousin of mind, a rather bright, educated attorney. She was complaining that every time she went into a store she ended up buying more than she expected to buy, more than she needed to buy, and spending ridiculously more than she should have spent. When I asked this supposedly intelligent woman if she uses a list when she shops, she said, “No, but I know I really should.”

I figured, if this woman doesn’t “list it”, she’s probably not alone. That’s when I realized that making lists would make a good “Weekly Challenge”. Although this “Weekly Challenge” is over, please keep making lists and please stick to them!

Tomorrow we will see what this coming week’s savings challenge will be.

In case you missed it, here were some of our top posts of the past week. (You can either click on them, or scroll down and review all of our past posts.)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
