My grocery-shopping strategy is pretty simple: plan menus, stick to a list and shop on Tuesday mornings. Fewer people shop on Tuesdays (shorter lines) and the food is usually fresher. Shelves get restocked with fresh goods on Mondays after weekend...

Tips for raising charitable children

Do you give? When are were you taught to do so as a child? Do your children? But, how exactly do we create a culture of giving in the home? It doesn't start the way I think about it--that scene from Mommy Dearest where Mommy makes Christina give...

How to shop with two kids: divide and conquer

When it comes to grocery shopping with small children, you usually have small windows of opportunity to get in, get your bread and get out before all hell breaks loose. While I usually do grocery shopping during the week by myself, sometimes my...
