    According to my Discover card, over the last 24 months, my family has averaged $26 a month on eating out. Some months, we never went even to McDonald's. I generally do not bother without a coupon or some kind of discount. My brother is kind of the opposite of me and I think devotes $300 a month...

    ~And yet another reason to forgo processed foods and cook from scratch. Manufacturers add an ingredient called cellulose to many ready to eat items, fast food and even "diet" and "high fiber" foods.

    I would like to keep it as organic as possible. A friend told me to spray with some water and dish detergent and leave it on for a few hours, then rinse off. Does that work? Any tips? Just let it be?

  11. Coupons
    I came across this blog today. A man's sister challenged him to eat well for only $1 a day for the whole month. He used coupons and sales and did it, then extended the challenge further. I searched the village forums and didn't see a post about this, so I'm posting it now. I became hooked...

    I notice by reading on here and watching American tv shows that a LOT of Americans eat out a LOT!! I remember the prices in Harrisburg last year when I visited my friend and I was amazed. Don't hold me to the exact name of the restaurant because we ate out a LOT in the few days that we were...

    We moved in on January 15th and while we did spend the first few days eating take-out (Wok Box, Harvey's, etc.), we haven't done it ever since.

    This article surprised me with things that aren't focused upon or associated with when trying to reduce sugar intake. Media sometimes focuses only on a few of these, not all. We all know we should cut back but wow. For example, over consumption of sugars puts one in an increased risk of...
