My apologies again for a long break since posting any articles or tips. This time it is for a good reason, rather than a death in the family. I got a new teaching job at the beginning of October. I had been teaching child abuse prevention and traveling to schools all over the county and... Continue Reading →
Lessons from losing my father
Losing my dad last week has taught me some important lessons that I thought were appropriate to share here, before I get back to my regular blog topics. It feels weird to get back to my regular life, without reflecting. I know a few of these ideas might sound cliché, but I hope my thoughts... Continue Reading →
Back to blogging after much sadness
Thank you all for your patience these last few weeks as I have not been able to work on my blog. The last time I posted, my dad was in the hospital after a massive heart attack. Unfortunately, there was too much damage to the rest of his body even after open-heart surgery fixed his heart.... Continue Reading →
Apologies for lack of posts
My apologies for not being able to post any new tips this week. My father had a massive heart attack on Monday and I have been spending most of my time at the hospital and dealing with things to help him. I hope that G-d willing he will be on the road to recovery soon... Continue Reading →

The look is amazing and very eye-catching (which I guess is the point!). I love that I can share different things I find that maybe aren't worth a whole... Continue Reading →

I have recently been posting about family activities to do in the summer. However, summertime is not the only time for excursions! We are fortunate that we have a lot of great websites and booklets of events in St. Louis. However, not every town has this and there are some national sources for outings that... Continue Reading →

Please click on the link below to take my survey. I also created a new logo. Let me know if you like it. I am trying to get it to post... Continue Reading →
Celebrating my 100th post with a survey!
I am so excited that today I published my 100th post. This blog has been a great way for me to share my findings with others and to help research even more ways for my family to save. However, a blog is nothing without an audience. So I would love your feedback. Please take the following survey to... Continue Reading →

Thank you to all of my subscribers and other readers! I hope you are finding this blog helpful (and entertaining, too). I enjoy working on it, although I am not able to post as often as I did in the summer when I was not working. Please let me know if there are any topics... Continue Reading →
