H2ouse was created specifically as a water conservation site for California, but it offers plenty of good water saving tips for the average homeowner anywhere.

All You is the website companion to the women’s magazine of the same title. The site offers recipes, health information, shopping strategies, coupons, hair and beauty ideas and fashion tips.

“Since 1971, CSPI has been a strong advocate for nutrition and health, food safety, alcohol policy, and sound science.” Visit the site to learn more, and while there make sure to check out the Consumer Toolkit section.

Some recent personal finance posts I enjoyed reading.

Weekly Reminder – A reminder of a useful article you might have missed. A while back I studied four cities across the U.S. to find out if you could really find good free stuff on Craigslist. The results? Click to find out!

Free Applesauce

This past week my wife and I made and canned applesauce from four boxes of apples our son-in-law gave us, which he got for free. That amounted to an end result of 18 quarts to eat over the winter. We cored then boiled the apples in water, strained out the skins, added some sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon and then canned the sauce.

We had not canned anything for a few years so it was fun little project to undertake. If you don’t have access to free apples you could visit an orchard and pick your own for what is usually a nominal fee per bushel. Visit
All About Apples to find an orchard near you.
