From a meandering mind:
We’re all trying to save money. I’ve stumbled on a couple of well-done internet sites that really do seem to help! First of all, check out www.thegrocerygame.com. Also, try www.couponmom.com. Both work on the same principle – you save all the coupons from the Sunday papers, etc and the sites help you use them when the stores already have the items on sale! Both are handy for stockpiling necessities. There’s a small charge for thegrocerygame site, but couponmom is free. The first is a bit better organized and easier to use, but the latter incorporates more stores. Try them both. I’ve been doing thegrocerygame for a couple of months and have hit savings as high as 57% on a trip to the local supermarket, shopping only for things I know we’ll use or for things to stockpile (toothpaste, TP, etc). By the way, I get nothing for sending you to either site. Just trying to help.
Keep my friends in Iowa in your thoughts. The flood waters are going down, but things are still a real mess. The crew at KCRG continues to do a marvelous job and their live coverage is still on the internet.
And, a bit of politics, as usual.
A previously undisclosed CIA report written in the summer of 2002 questioned the “credibility” and “truthfulness” of an Al Qaeda detainee who became a key source for the Bush administration’s claims about links between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden.
