Like it or not, buying groceries is a fact of life and usually a major expense for every household. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we spend over $7000.00 annually on food. And that number is increasing at an estimated seven percent every year.
But chances are that many families don’t even realize they are throwing away up to $2,200 of food each year while also paying top dollar for trips to the grocery store.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
The good news is that there are ways to significantly cut food costs.

This year Father's Day is June 16th...that's less than 10 days away! To select a gift that your dad will love, it might be helpful to define the type of dad he is first. Is he the adventurous type? Hiking and biking and climbing his way through life. Or is he the steady, predictable, goal-oriented dad? He takes the same path, the same time each day, trying to shave a second or two off his personal best time. Or is your dad the super chill type? Strolling through life from the grill to the couch to the bed. No matter your dad's type, a comfortable pair of supportive shoes is a great gift idea.Read Now »

With Father's Day less than two weeks away, you may be scrambling for good gift ideas. I don't know why, but dads seem to be almost impossible to buy for. Every year it's a challenge to come up with an idea that a) he will love, and b) I can afford.

Thankfully, though, there's a fail-proof gift that saves the day every year. It's a truth universally acknowledged...Read Now »

Mother's Day is just 3 days away. If you're like me, you are not yet in possession of gift or a card or even an idea of what to do for this woman who has sacrificed so much for you. Sometimes I think that is precisely why it is so hard to select a present for our moms. There is so much to say, so many feelings, and so many tender memories that make it difficult to translate all of that to a single gesture on a single day. Now that I'm a mom, though, I can tell you it truly is the thought that counts. A drawing hand-delivered to me by one of my children is more precious to me than a luxurious day at the spa (...eh em...don't get me wrong.Read Now »
