Another quick Friday round-up at the beginning of this holiday weekend for folks in both the US and UK.
I plan to get all my vegetable and herb plants in the raised beds over the weekend. I hope to have some photos to share with you next week and I’ll be doing an update on my successes and yes, failures too, as the season progresses.
I have learned that starting your vegetable plants from seeds can save you lots of money. I just visited my local DIY store and the tomato plants were $3.50 each. I paid less than that for the package of seeds which has yielded at least a dozen plants. So first tip is when you can, go with the seeds. I also discovered that if you’re opting for plants select the packs of 4 or 6 instead of the single pots as you save money too. You can always can, dry or freeze extra veggies.
And before I forget I got to sample these new biscotti cookies. They’re great dipped in tea! The company is hosting a summer giveaway and there’s also a $1 coupon you can download. Here are all the details-
Nonni’s, creator of the number one selling biscotti recently introduced Mango Coconut THINaddictives, a delicious tropical treat made with real ingredients, including sweet mango, grated coconut and California almonds.

Meatless Monday will be on a holiday break next week but will return June 1st. I’m working on lots of summer recipes that I hope to share with you over the coming months. And this site will be one of the stops for an author who’s written a great book packed with money saving tips.
Have a money saving week and a safe and happy holiday weekend.
