July Molly's Money Saving Digest

Hello! I know that most of you have heard me talk about Molly's Money Saving Digest. Again, I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful resource this is for those of us trying to watch where our money is going. Molly makes counting pennies fun!

In July's digest, Molly begins by explaining how she keeps a picnic bag in her car for improptu picnics. I love picnics and we need to have more of them. I am so thankful for her list of items to keep in the car and ideas for fun things to do while picnicing. If you need a reason for a picnic, Molly lists several fun special dates in July - national ice cream day anyone???? LOL The forms that Molly provides this month would also be helpful on a picnic, including scavenger hunt and nature study forms (with ideas on how to use them).

Molly provides a weekly menu plan and recipes including Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken, Banana pudding, Grilled Shrimp and Noodle Salad - and others! Molly also includes a grocery shopping list so that you can follow her weekly menu with as little work as possible.

The kids are home for the summer so Molly gives us a bunch of fun science activities that make something else that they can use......such as Homemade Bubble solution and Oobleck.

Need something to do with all those plastic grocery bags you get? Would you believe there are instructions for a day pack made from grocery bags? You will love it! I can't wait to try it out.

Molly wraps up this digest with an alphabet of fun summer activities. Now you can't complain that there is nothing fun to do!

Molly's Money Saving Digest can be found at The Old Schoolhouse Store for $4.95.
