4 Practical Tips for Buying Meat

I spend a lot of time groaning and griping in the meat department of the grocery store. It isn't because of the cuts of meat, it's the prices that keep me down. Even though my children have long since grown up and I don't feed them anymore (except for the grandchildren that visit) I still think very much like I did when they were in the household. I never believe that paying more for the same cut of meat makes it taste better nor do I believe you are always getting the best deal when you buy the cheap meat. So where does that leave us?

Product Review: Mr Clean Magic Eraser

Mr Clean Magic erasers have been around awhile, EVERYONE knows that. I don't know how many reviews have been done on this product because I never looked before. I like to do some reviews because there are little things that don't get covered. You might say I did that with this review.

Pros: Cleans a lot of things with ease, really does work to remove stains from articles that were previously thought to be destroyed. Uses water only

Cons: Sponge disappears over time, can't use on some surfaces.

Dollar General Store

When I was a kid the Dollar General was my store. I grew up a few blocks from the store and back then all we knew it as "the dollar store". I still use that name as do most my relatives. It was different for me when I moved up north (I am from Kentucky, home of the Dollar General) because they were just putting these stores in so when I would say "the dollar store" folks would say "which one?" . Since my humble beginnings there have been so many places that are dollar stores. I have seen Dollar Tree (one of my favorites) and the 99 cents store to name a couple.

Totino's Pizza Sticks

What can I say? Totino's has always been a great little pizza roll and now they are doing sticks! I gotta say, since I ate 2 of the sticks to get my review video right I am pretty stuffed.
