Do you like to use coupons? Some people make it into a sport all its own. I don’t go hunting for them, but when they show up in my mailbox from my favorite store for my most-purchased items, that’s a game-changer. It’s amazing how these little slips of paper can…(Read More)

Do you ever feel like an opportunity is too much work? Too many hurdles to overcome? It would be better to just skip? Maybe it’s just me. I knew days before that the meteor shower would happen in the wee hours on Friday morning. But the idea of rousing myself, much less my children…(Read More)
