In the past couple of weeks, I've found a whole bunch of blogs and websites that are informative or entertaining, and I thought I'd share them with you all. I hope you find something useful or interesting!
Money Saving Mom - "An upbeat and encouraging blog dedicated to helping you find great deals, stretch your hard-earned dollars, and live on less than you make so you can save more and give more."
A Frugal Friend - Tips on saving money with coupons, rebates, freebies, and deals.
Penny Pinching Parent - Tips on how to save money on baby and kid stuff, including coupons and deals.
Leaving Excess - A blogger who quit her life as a CPA to become a stay-at-home mom and is now trying to come up with creative ways to live simpler with "less clutter, less stress, less money and fewer headaches."
Wholesome Baby Food - Now that Elias is starting solids, I'm planning on making his baby food, and this is an awesome reference to get me going. Includes recipes and tips on age-appropriate foods.
A Year of Crockpotting - This lady made a New Year's Resolution to use her crockpot every day in 2008, so she posts her recipe and a review of it every day! I've found and used some awesome recipes off this site! Gotta love the crockpot.
$5 Dinners - A blogger who decided to try to make dinner for her family every night for $5 or less - total! I can't believe the stuff she can make for that little!
Gottadeal - This is just an ongoing list of current online deals, some of which are really good. There are also forums, but I've never looked at them.
Right@Home - Recipes, household tips, coupons and online deals.
Eat Better America - Tips and recipes for eating better. What I like most about this site is that they have traditional recipes that they have "healthified" to make them better for you.
Food Reference - A wealth of information about food! I use this site to find neat trivia facts to use at a Cooking Show about the foods I'm going to be using that evening. For example, did you know that pickles are good for diabetics because the vinegar that they're pickled with helps regulate blood sugar?! Now you know...
Consumer Product Safety Commission - Updates about current product recalls and seasonal safety tips. You can also sign up for their email alerts, which let you know when a product is recalled - very helpful, especially with all the baby stuff that gets recalled these days.
LOLCats - I had seen some of these pictures in other places before, but I just recently found the website where they originate. They take pictures of cats (or occasionally other animals) and add HILARIOUS captions. They're not kidding when they call it LOL - I laugh so hard I cry.LOLDogs - Same as LOLCats, but with dogs, obviously.
