Recently, we established a new checking account. With banking turmoil the way it is these days, it’s not as simple as it used to be. I never used to think about which bank I chose, except for which was closest to home, or on the way home from work. However, after consulting with a friend […]
This week I found myself running around and feeling exhausted in my efforts to “nab the good deals.” I only went to two stores on Wednesday, but I came home wondering if this is all worth it. FishPapa and I had a great conversation about it, and we realized that while my grocery geekiness pays […]
When we moved from Kansas to California late last month, we were without a clothes dryer for several weeks. It’s a long, boring story why that is. But, the point is that while I could clean clothes, I couldn’t dry them with the push of a button. Not a good thing when you have up […]
