The economy is always part of the news, during good times, or bad times, and financial planning is a tool for managing our money and planning our financial future.
We all have our own ways of saving money, but we all are equally guilty of wasting money, due to poor planning, or worse yet, lack of it.
I came across this very interesting article about several ways of wasting money, and decided to post it in full, rather than providing a link, since after a while these links are discontinued and the “late bloomers” would miss this very useful information.
If you feel you do not fit in this category of spenders, please pass the link to this post to your family and friends, for a real eye opener, and you might get a big THANK YOU!!!!
I have just picked some fresh cucumbers from my garden…..they are so fresh, and so much tastier than the ones from the store (no wax on these ones….). Garden fresh cucumbers actually do have a very nice taste, and can be eaten with the peel on, but I prefer them peeled.
Cucumbers may be used in a variety of ways: in tossed salads, as cucumber tea sandwiches, sliced and served plain or with a dip, used in numerous appetizers, etc. I love my cucumbers in a cucumber salad, dressed with sour cream or vinaigrette style.
If you live the ”American Dream”, like the rest of us, you are a frequent user of credit cards for everyday purchases , and especially while traveling.
Credit cards are a very convenient way of payment for purchases, since you do not need to worry about having enough cash on you, or losing a cash receipt, etc. However, there is also a down side to having and using credit cards, and that is a credit card fraud, stolen cards, and scams such as phishing emails.
With all the frequent rain showers we experienced lately in our area, my garden is in its glory, and thriving.
If you love gardening, as I do, you will agree that no matter how much, and how often, you water your garden, it does not measure up to one good rain fall, and the plants just seem to grow in front of your eyes soon afterward.
This season’s harvest already began in my garden, and, with great pleasure, I was able to pick some baby red beets, dill, chives, summer squash, zucchini, green beans, and basil.
