    Making lunches for the week – Am I this crazy?

    In an effort to save money (because buying lunches everyday can get VERY expensive) I am really picky about making something for lunch at work. Think of it, … average of $7 a day, 5 days a week = $35. $35 x 4 weeks is…

    Today I went and test drove a new 2007 Pontiac Vibe. It was very nice. Right now I have a 2003 Chevrolet Impala LS. First off, …the Impala is a great car, lots of power, big, safe, and a great stereo system. …you’re probably thinking…
