    Great review of ideas. I think I need to go on a grocery freeze after the holidays. Not sure I would make it a month though. Looking forward to next Friday. Merry Christmas.

    Happy New Year!! I just wanted to comment and let you know that I read your blog post every time I receive your email. I get a lot of emails with the latest blog post, that I signed up for thinking I would read them but slowly I have weeded out the ones that I don’t. I enjoy reading yours and have learned a lot. Thanks for the recap of 2015. Looking forward to reading and learning more. Marie in Montana
