Simplify life

Jeanie's S.O.S.

Save Money

As my precious, penny-pinching granny always said, "Watch those pennies. Pennies make dollars."
Granny was right. Impulse purchases, eating out, even a movie night with friends can take an unexpectedly large bite out of our budgets.
Making simple changes can save us hundreds of dollars a year. Ka-Ching!

Bank of America shares ideas to cut everyday expenses, like using apps to snag the best gas prices.

After we shower, our wet towels wage epic battles over towel bar space. Losers crumple in damp heaps on the floor. Installing double towel bars prevents those turf wars. If that doesn't cut it, Alexandra Churchill of
Martha Stewart Living shared this space-saving bathroom idea. "A trio of bars affixed behind the door is a great way to use a small amount of space efficiently." This works best for painted doors, not varnished wood ones.

In 1621 Pilgrims scoured the woods for food. Upon finding frozen Butterball turkeys and canned yams, they thanked God, texted their Native American BFFs, and held a feast.

Actually, President George Washington declared November 26, 1789, as the first national day of prayer and thanksgiving to the Lord. And President Abraham Lincoln established the last Thursday in November to acknowledge “the gracious gifts of the Most High God” bestowed upon America. Every president followed suit until 1941, when Congress officially made Thanksgiving a national holiday. 

If  hosting a large Thanksgiving dinner exhausts you, ask your guests to bring one side dish. Non-cooks could bring dinner rolls or pick up a pie from the bakery.
Here's a link to healthy Thanksgiving recipes, from gluten-free to Paleo to sheer traditional deliciousness.
This Thanksgiving let's celebrate with our loved ones instead of stuffing them. After all, they're not turkeys.
