Works for me Wednesday

With the rise of gas prices (gulp!) I know we all could use some good tips on how to save money. What has worked for my family for the past few summers was placing our satellite TV on hold for the summer. With the provider we have, we do not pay anything to do this - no fees, and no monthly bills. For us we don't watch TV in the summer anyway, so I was so excited to find that I didn't have to pay for something we weren't using! Then come the middle of September, we usually reactivate the service without any cost whatsoever! Call your cable or satellite provider to see if they offer this.

For other great tips, check out the blog Rocks in My Dryer.

Wow, what a great idea! I will have to check in to that!

Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
Are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O'er all that flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering in the sky;
To stay at home is best.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
