GREAT IDEAS FOR GRANDMA AND GRANDPA:

How to Block Websites for Your Kid. I thought this looked interesting for our grandkids. I won’t have a chance to check it out for some time but thought I’d pass on the info. If anyone does check it out, let us know how you like it. 🙂

WAYS TO SAVE MONEY:

School is out and colds are less common. Now might be a great time to declutter around the house. I love Don Aslett’s books on decluttering. I got half way through Clutter’s Last Stand, put it down totally inspired and immediately got rid of several bags of stuff. Never missed it!  🙂 As Robin Sampson puts it, the less stuff you own, the less you have to clean, store, maintain, manage, protect, or worry about. If you have the time and energy, selling items at a yard sale or on EBay can help pad the monthly budget a bit. If there is no time, Salvation Army is a great cause and will usually come to your house to pick up.
