Love the Consumerist article. Just another reason to hate eating out at crappy chain restaurans.

With day old bread, you can also make bread pudding and 'pain perdu' (the real 'French Toast').

Loud restaurants according to study actually make people drink more not eat more

Great reads...make sure to take a look at the debt relief scams.  I see so many of these popping up.  With such a difficult economy, so many folks are hurting and unfortunately people are looking to take advantage of them.

That popcorn tip is pretty darn good.  I'm going to try that tonight when hubby and I curl up on the couch for netflix night.  Thanks!

Those debt relief scams will get you every time! Beware!

Also, checking any insurance your credit card may provide is a great idead.  One that is overlooked by so many.
