Saving Money Idea

How often do you go to the grocery store? We had a habit for a while of going several times a week. We are either blessed or cursed with a Thriftway very near our house, so we would just walk there. Especially in the summer. We've come to realize this is not the greatest for our budget and have been focusing on going to Safeway once a week.

Here's an interesting article about how you can save money by cutting down the trips you make to the grocery store. It suggests once-a-month shopping trips!!!! I'm not sure I could get my act together that much, but it's an interesting idea. I do also like the idea of 2x/month. That might be more doable for us. We definitely notice that we spend more when we go numerous times a week (especially if it includes a Starbucks run!)

Yay Angie!

Check out this gorgeous pic of Angelina Jolie, breastfeeding one of her new twins. (Snapped by Brad Pitt.)

Kudos to her for nursing those twins. That has got to be a lot of work, but so worth it.

More funny politics

Lovin' the Silverman. PLEASE participate in the "The Great Schlep". Sean, get down there! (I know that's not where your grandparents are, but you can convince some Nanas. I know you can. Yes, you can.)
