It will include coupon sections, a freebie section, budget recipe section...and the list goes on and on....things will be quite slow here until then, but I'll let you know as soon as we're up and running. Happy Savings!

Happy Anniversary USO!

February 4th is the USO’s 69th birthday. That’s not a meaningful milestone in itself (unless you’re 68), but it reminds us that in parts of 8 decades, this organization continues to deliver support for troops and families with compassion and relevance.

In 69 years we’ve moved from providing letter-writing stations to providing free Internet connections. Films projected onto sheets have become videos on large screen TVs. There’s still coffee and magazines and comfortable furniture. There’s still the respite from hard duty. And, there’s still Mom in the kitchen making a cake.

How about heading over to the USO website to see how you can help this wonderful organization that turns around and helps our soldiers. Whether it be a donation of money or your time, every bit helps. Click HERE to learn more and THANK YOU to the USO for all that you do.

Clearance, Clearance, Clearance!

I can't stress enough the importance of checking out the clearance section of your local department stores. Today, while at the mall with a friend, I browsed through the clearance section of Boscov's (of course you will always find the clearance section in the back of the store, so you get the bonus of a little more exercise in your day!). I found holiday items at 50 to 80 percent off, which was to be expected, but I also found 70% off of watering systems and some garden tools. Perfect for the upcoming growing season!

So today, I purchased a total of four packs of Halloween napkins (which I love by the way), three garden sprinklers and a garden claw for a total of $4.66 with tax. Are you kidding me?

So don't always assume that you won't find anything you need/want in the clearance section. It's worth your time to take a peek!

National Girls and Women In Sports Day

Today is National Girls and Women In Sports Day. It is a special day for girls and women to celebrate their participation in sports and athletics. When Title IX was enacted in 1971, 1 in 27 girls in high school participated in athletics. One in three girls participate in athletics in high school now! Women participated in only 13 of the 24 events of the 1984 Olympic Games; in Beijing in 2008, female athletes competed in 28 of the 32 Olympic events. There has been an explosion in the number of athletic opportunities open to women and girls of all ages and levels of ability.

To help celebrate, why not attend a local girls' competition like a high school basketball game or swim meet. Watch a woman's tennis match on television or simply expose your daughter to sports by playing catch in the yard, teaching her some gymnastics or how about shooting some hoops in the driveway?

Whatever you decide to do, it is important for girls and women to remain active so get going!
