My sister let me know about this service. It is a website that searches the adds from several grocery stores near me and color codes the deals for me each month. The red deals are the really good deals. It saves me lots of time and I generally only spend about $150 a month for groceries for a family of three. it is free for a trial period of two weeks and then it is for only a cost of $1.25 per week and is definitely worth the price. The creator of the site also offers a meal plan and shopping list for a full week of menus based on the current red deals and a guide to food storage for your family. check it out at deals to meals.

There is a free online journal which you can enter in specific nutrition and health goals. Than you can enter the foods you eat and the activities you did and find out how your calorie intake vs out take was for each dayand whether or not you met your personal exercise and nutrition goals or not . It even keeps track so you can see statistics over a long period of time (for days you have entered in information of course). It also has a helpful place where you can track your mood each day which is wonderful for those of us who have tendency toward depression or hormone imbalances and need to be able to let our dr. know if there is a pattern in our hard days. Best of all it is a free service (with more options available for purchase if you like).

I just saw this post on my sister's blog. She used a great idea for a craft that is fun and only takes two supplies: construction paper and cool whip. It is fine if they eat the paint too! :)
