I have a list of links saved up for weekend reading. I'd meant to post last weekend and I just didn't have time to get to it.
Georgene shared this post on her blog, "5 Things Tidy People Do" . It spoke to me because I am a tidying sort of person...and it's not at all what I used to be! I LEARNED to be tidy and anyone else can, too. I have only one exception. I will leave dishes in the sink overnight on Shabat evenings, but I start Shabat with a clean, empty sink and all dishes put away...I just choose to honor the 'rest' by rinsing and stacking neatly so I can load dishwasher first thing on Sunday morning.
Gramma D had some questions about CVS shopping this past week...And I think Rhonda's post on shopping at CVS is a good one to share. I personally count the ECBs when I earn them as a sort of rebate on the items bought. But their value is in USING them to purchase needed items. Rhonda has a great system and if you read through her blog she lists several Facebook group pages, vlogs and blogs that will help anyone interested in trying their hand at CVS savings.
I just found Lori Alexander this past week when she showed up in the things Pinterest thought I might be interested in. I won't even get into the discussion of how I loathe having a media tool decide it knows what I want to see, but I digress. I actually did enjoy this post and several more by this blogger.
What follows are no particular articles but a listing of sites or author sites I have used at times to brush up on skills, learn new ones, or just to get the frugal juices flowing:
http://www.couponmom.com/ Love her comprehensive listing of stores, sales, and deals.
http://www.stretcher.com/index.cfm I read this newsletter for years and even wrote for Gary a couple of times in my early writing days.
http://elliekay.com/wpress/ Ellie was one of the first authors books I picked up in my days of desperately trying to save money. This link leads to her blog which I didn't realize existed. Happy find!
And just because I like to read a good almanac: http://www.almanac.com/
