I can’t promise that I’ll have time to post something every Friday, but I thought I’d start writing a Friday Round Up of all the budget related items I found on the Web and tips for making the most of your money-

This past week I’ve been planning this year’s vegetable garden. I’m trying some new things this time around, potatoes, yellow onions and shallots. Now’s a great time to go out and buy all the supplies because there are lots of sales going on.
And my tip of the week-sometimes looking in different sections or different shelves at the supermarket can net you savings. I was looking for Panko breadcrumbs and found some for $1.84 which I thought was a great buy, two aisles over I found the same thing, just a different brand for $2 more. It sounds incredible but I guess supermarkets don’t think we notice these things. Bottom line is check out every shelf and don’t be brand loyal.
Have a good weekend and Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
