Episode 61 – Mac n Cheese

Ok quick poll, who loves Mac-n-cheese (if you didn’t raise your hand I’m not sure I want to know you…) Almost everyone right?! Well Ima gonna tell yall how to make REAL mac-n-cheese, not that powdered box stuff either… (although the velveta shells and cheese does have a special place in my heart).  And listen, it isn’t hard at all.

Hey remember you can buy websites starting at $10 PER YEAR, help feed my kids.

So listen here for this fairly simple recipe (which doesn’t include hot dogs, don’t make me hurt you…) and have a great meal!

Mac-n-Cheese is great for feeding my kids, you can help by buying things from Amazon.com like Casserole Dishes.

Another way to help feed my kids is buy your webhosting from BUBWeb.com

Episode 60 – Geocaching

Ok so I got a new hobby… we will see how long it lasts, but it is pretty fun.  Welcome to Geocaching!
So you may be all, “Dude what’s Geocaching?”  Well it’s a TREASURE HUNT! although the treasure is really just finding the cache.  Ok so what you do is get the coordinates to a cache, toss them in your GPS device (I use my android phone) and go find a little hidden box or tube or whatever hidden somewhere.  Kinda fun really.

Oh hey quick interlude, remember websites starting at $10 per YEAR at BUBWEB.com Just sayin…

So if you want to hear me get my geek on a little bit feel free to listen to my primer (I’ve only been doing this for a couple of weeks) on geocaching below.  It’s a cheap, fun, family friendly hobby that gets you off the couch.

More Contests

This blog isn’t really about pimping other people’s contests but it is about giving you information about things that can help you, so I will post some contests/giveaways/etc, that I think you might be interested in.  Even though this reduces my chances of winning I just can’t let them go on in secret.

So in that vein here is another SPECTACULAR contest being run by Jack Spirko over at The Survival Podcast.  This one is for a Shelf Reliance brand Harvest 72 food rotation system.  I’ve lusted after one of these since I’ve heard of them but the cash just hasn’t been there for me.  I am able to afford FREE though so not that I don’t want you to win or anything but I have a spot reserved for this bad boy in my basement.

So head over to The Survival Podcast contest link  CLICK HERE

Or if you wish you can go direct to the contest by CLICKING HERE , but hey take a look over at Jack’s stuff because he’s doing great stuff over there and bringing you these sweet contests.

Episode 56 – Coupons! (and once a month cooking)

I got sucked into some of those “extreme” coupon shows the other day, and started researching.  A few days later (plus publishing delays) and you get a fresh show.  It’s a short one but really how much can you say about coupons?

OH! I almost forgot, I also discuss “once a month cooking” , just another way to save money.

Ok some links up in here!

Don’t forget, I’m looking at putting together some first aid kits and perhaps survival kits.  Let me know if you are interested, deets HERE

Episode 55 – Funeral Arrangements

Funerals are something we try to avoid thinking about on a day to day basis, and this can really get us in trouble.  The fact that we are distraught and emotional when we are trying to deal with Funeral Directors is used by them to get extra cash.  So within this podcast we discuss some resources and ideas to save money and help you pre-plan everything you need, to either help you  in your time of grieving or help your family in theirs.

Check out Funerals.org for more resources.
