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.

Halloween is one of my favorite times to decorate my home. However, I hate to break the bank doing so. Here are my top 5 tips for saving money on Halloween decorations.
1. Reuse what you have on hand with some quick additions. You can make a cute Halloween centerpiece by taking a vase and a candle you already have and adding candy corn around it. Look at what you have and see how you can give it some Halloween flair. Tablecloths and sheets can have many creative uses too.
2. Do it yourself. You can easily make all kinds of simple and cute Halloween decorations on the cheap. Everything from using glow sticks and toilet paper rolls for evil eyes in your bushes to cute subway art with free templates. I even have some ideas on a my Pinterest board to get you started.
When you think
about reducing your energy consumption, your mind automatically goes
toward your AC or your lights. And while the big things like heating and
cooling matter, the little things add up just as quickly. Case and
point - your kitchen. In many homes, the kitchen contains more devices
than any room in the house. And if you're an amateur chef like me, you
manage to use all of them every time you go in there, which can lead to
big utility bills.
You don't have to give up cooking to save the planet, but you can reduce your usage if you use a few tricks in the kitchen.

Money Saving Tips
Giving up disposable products, plastic shopping bags and other
"conveniences" of modern-day life can be challenging, because we
think they make our lives easier. The New Year is a great time to
challenge those perceptions.
Here are a handful of quick, eco-friendly resolutions that might
even make your life a little easier.
Buy in bulk
You'll pay less per pound of food, and make fewer trips to the
store, when you buy in bulk. These airtight glass canisters make storing your
extra non-perishables easy; you might need freezer bags, or even a
vacuum sealer, for perishable items.
