    Last Saturday, I went to another clothes give away. I almost did not go. I picked up 5 pairs of pants, 10 blouses, two purses, and a plant stand. I also dropped off two bags of clothing I was not wearing anymore. We have another one this Saturday and next Friday.

    I'd really like to recommend it to others and am planning to give it as a gift to a few young folks I know! The title is "Debt is Slavery and 9 other things I wish my Dad had taught me about Money" by Michael Mihalik. I bought it used on Amazon. It is easy read and pulls no punches. Check it out!
