Making Green: Craigslist 101: How to Sell Successfully If I ever, ever, ever get around to cleaning out the 1/2 of my garage I’ve never unpacked from my move, my friend Andrea has the best article on how to sell on Craigslist! (Andrea also runs a home organization builder and if she lived any closer I’d hire her to help me in a snap!)

Saving Green: Craigslist 101: How to Buy Successfully I’ve bought several things off Craigslist (right now I’m trying to hunt down a decent food dehydrator) but there are a few things I learned that I didn’t know from Andrea’s article.

Growing Green: Growing Carrots in Plant Containers Anyone can do this – no yard required.

Going Green: The Importance of Buying Local I’ve just read three books in a row all about farming. I’m a bit over the top on the local bandwagon right now.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Green Links post! I like them … not sure how I got off track????

Making Green: Lessons Learned During a Layoff are things we think we know but are worth repeating!

Saving Green: Life…Your Way has an extensive FREE printables library! Menu plans, Babysitter and Emergency info, Christmas cookie tags….it looks like you can print most anything!

Going Green: I think my sweet friend Rebekah fell victim to this yesterday. Green vs Greener – A New Take on Eco-Snobbery. Have you ever felt someone was being an eco-snob??

Growing Green: I love this Infographic on Home Gardening. Check out the “return on investment part.” Wowza! From my interactions here on The Greenbacks Gal, I have to say gardeners are some of the kindest people – so I think it’s a really good thing it’s a growing trend!

Better Living Network: Links

The Better Living Network has some great posts this week I think you’ll enjoy!

Eat at Home Menu Planner

Tiffany at Eat at Home has a new FREE downloadable Weekly Menu Planner. Check it out cuz it is super cute and practical to boot!

Crystal at Crystal & Co. has a great resource for How to Plan for a Section 504 Meeting at Your School. Please pass this resource on to those in your life who may need it.

Kay at Bucksome Boomer shares her Department Store Shopping Strategies. I’m heading to the mall later today, so I enjoyed her tips.

Nikki at Coupon Cookin is my go to girl for Whole Foods Deals. Although these deals vary by region, it is worth taking the same coupons in hopes of scoring the same unadvertised deals!

Brandy at Savin Some is the BEST at repurposing and creating clever items. Check out the pillow she made out of a sweater.

Finally, we don’t have a CVS here in C Springs. If you are looking for CVS deals, the Coupon Mommie has all your match-ups!

Happy Reading!

Hey Everyone! I’ll be out doing some Black Friday shopping – followed by some Black Friday napping!

Here is some Food for Thought on a holiday weekend all about Food!


This quote is so thought-provoking I didn’t want you to miss it:

From Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Eating Animals”:

“Just the other day, one of the local pediatricians was telling me he’s seeing all kinds of illnesses that he never used to see. Not only juvenile diabetes, but inflammatory and autoimmune diseases that a lot of the docs don’t even know what to call. And girls are going through puberty much earlier, and kids are allergic to just about everything, and asthma is out of control. Everyone knows it’s our food. We’re messing with the genes of these animals and then feeding them growth hormones and all kinds of drugs that we really don’t know enough about.

And then we’re eating them.

Kids today are the first generation to grow up on this stuff, and we’re making a science experiment out of them. Isn’t it strange how upset people get about a few dozen baseball players taking growth hormones, when we’re doing what we’re doing to our food animals and feeding them to our children?”

– Frank Reese, poultry farmer
