Green Links: 10/9/10 Friends Edition

As you know, I always try to share some of the interesting thoughts and information I find about Making Green, Saving Green, Going Green and Growing Green.

One of the beauties of this world wide web is there is so much good stuff out there. One of the downfalls of this world wide web is sometimes it can be hard to wade through everything there is out there.

Let me introduce you to some blogs you’ll definitely want to put in your reader!

Tiffany at Eat at Home ~ I’ve fallen off the menu planning wagon! But I’ve got something even better! Each week, my friend Tiffany puts together a menu plan and a shopping list. She then provides you with each recipe so you really can “Eat at Home”! This week her recipes included Stromboli and Apple Brownies. Yum! Be sure to catch her on Monday to get your own weekly menu plan!

Nikki at Coupon Cookin ~ Nikki and I met at the Savvy Blogging Summit and her blog is every bit as likable as she is! She is a chef who brings you all the deals and then shows you how to cook them! This week she made Frugal Candy Corn Popcorn Balls that would be a definite Halloween Treat!

Crystal & Co. ~ Mom to 5 boys – including a set of twins! – Crystal amazes me with her creativity with projects like Ghost Halloween Treats. You’ll definitely want to dig around her site and if you know anyone with twins – make sure they know about her!

Kay at Bucksome Boomers ~ Kay is another friend from the Savvy Blogging Summit and if you are looking for money making or money saving tips, she has them! Her recent experience with a subscription account service is a good read if you ever sign up for freebies.

Coupon Mommie ~ There are so many deals out there, no one deal blogger can find them all. The Coupon Mommie has lots of great deals every day. This week she found a way to get Free Holiday Labels!

Savin Some ~ Brandi has lots of saving tips and strategies. She and I both share a common problem – magazine clutter! Check out her strategies for dealing with it!
