Thrift Shopping for the Stay at Home Mom

Thrift shopping is a great way for stay at home moms to find great bargain items to add to the wardrobe without going over your set budget limit. Also just because we spend alot of time with our kids doesn’t mean we don’t care about the latest fashion trends we realize that in these hard times we need to save money to take care of our family for whatever reason. So here are some of my thrift shopping tips found below.

1. Ask yourself if you like to go shopping for great bargains on clothes at a thrift shop. The reason why you should ask yourself this question is because thrift stores tend to require alot of time searching through racks and bins. You should always keep in mind that you may not always find your size or something that you like and find yourself leaving the thrift store empty handed.

2. Try to decide the right time for you to go. It is best to spend at least an hour hunting for bargains since you will have alot of ground to cover. Also you never know you could of skipped a ton of name brand items in your size …

No News is Not News

I’m not deaf and I’m not blind,
I see and hear the news,
But the things I see and hear
Are only commentators views.

I want to know the real truth 
Of why our soldiers die. 
We’re told that they’re protecting us. 
Let’s hear the battle cry.

Let’s hear what we’re protected from, 
And what good is being done. 
Or let’s just bring our soldiers home 
And look out for number one.

If we’re protecting interests 
In the oil fields abroad, 
So we can buy our oil there, 
Let’s give up on that fraud.

Let’s use our own oil deposits, 
Right here on our own ground, 
And bring our soldiers home again. 
I think that reasoning’s sound.

Check the Boston Newspapers, Radio and TV for the Best Local Patriots Coverage

For upcoming NFL coverage as the New England Patriots approach possibly yet another Superbowl, turn to the Boston media. Two major newspapers, TV stations, radio with non-stop sports coverage – all will be reporting the latest news from the team and their potential adversaries. Here’s a selection: is the home of the Boston Globe, in recent years an outpost of the New York Times. They have solid coverage of sports including top columnists.

Boston Herald is more of a “people’s paper” in Boston, and may have some inside scoops, definitely more coverage to chew on at break time at work.

WHDH-TV is one of the “big three” stations in Boston, channels 4, 5 and 7. Look for typical major media coverage with local insight.

WBZ Newsradio 1030 is a long-time favorite in the Boston area, your grandfather’s station but still up to date. Talk shows will be especially interesting, but coverage should be good and frequent. WBZ is listened to by many commuters for their drive-time traffic reports, so they should keep you up to date. Boston traffic is almost worth listening to by itself!

WEEI 850 AM Sports radio is real sports radio, for those who can’t get …

Healthy Sweet Potato Fries

We all are looking for ways these days to eat healthier food, but to have it taste great also. Who doesn’t love fries, but we all know the French Fries aren’t very healthy for you. These taste great and are healthy for you. So here is a recipe that is healthy and great tasting.

Take your sweet potatoes and wash the outsides. Then peel them. Cut the potato in half the long way. Then take that half and cut in half again. Then further cut into strips to form little sticks. Take a non stick baking sheet and place your cut fries on the sheet. Next drizzle them with olive oil and mix thoroughly with your hands. Make sure all the potato sticks are covered with olive oil.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Check often so your brown sugar doesn’t burn. When you take them out, let them sit for a few minutes and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then ENJOY!…
