Have you already gotten your Father's Day gift for the father in your life? If you haven't, no need to worry because I have one that will be a winner.
Most people don't know what to get for Father's Day because dad has almost anything that he needs. Will he need another necktie, cologne, shoes or a tablet? Not really. But, what about a grill?
No father will deny a grill that he could potentially cook his favorite 16 oz. Porterhouse steak on. Just ask him. I know mine won't.
While a grill is an awesome gift to give, it can get really pricey with the most expensive grill coming in at a whopping $35,000 (crazy!). But as you know, that's not how we roll, so I've got 5 awesome grills under $150, that will have your father grilling all summer long:
Now that summer is in full swing following the July 4th weekend, it's definitely time to take advantage of barbecue season. I'm going to run down the barest essentials you will need on your shopping list for a cookout for 8 -10 people. This isn't just theoretical either; I just had people over on Friday for a friend's birthday and cooked out. The idea for this post came to me Thursday night while shopping.

Here are 5 table settings you can make on a budget that are fun for
fall, but can be modified and used year round!
1. DIY Candy Jars. Do you have a small side table,
or the corner of a buffet table you are looking to decorate? How
about these DIY Candy Jars. We found three separate candle holders
we had around the house. one was wood, and the other two were both
different colors. We unified them with a can of glossy black spray
paint (we were decorating for Halloween, but you could use any
color). We then cleaned out an old pickle jar, pasta sauce jar
and mason jar in our fridge and painted their lids black. We
attached them to the bases with Gorilla Glue and added candy.

Money Saving Tips
Egads, the Holidays are fast approaching! Whether you're a professional in the kitchen or just dabble at a few recipes this Holiday season, we can all use some great kitchen tools to get us through it all! So I posed the question to the DealPros: "What is your favorite kitchen tool to get you through the Holidays?"....and here's what they had to say:
Here's a few back to school freebies, including one for
teachers! If your a teacher Staples is giving out free gift bags
with bonus coupons to the first 100 teachers at each store. Check
the link for the date in your area for Staples Teacher Appreciation Day. I've posted this
next freebie before but I want to remind everyone about it. For the
entire month of August, JCPenney's is offering free haircuts to all kids K - 6th grade.
Appointments are recommended. The free haircuts are available at
all JCP Salons in the USA.
When I decide to de-clutter, t-shirts are always one of the items
that I donate the most. My husband's white undershirts, no
matter how I wash them, seem to get dingy in six months.
Instead of donating them all to our local Goodwill, I decided that
I would try to re-purpose them and make them into items I could use
around my house.
