The Fru-Gal and Frisch's Big Boy want to wish everyone a Happy Halloween. Frisch's has given me a $25 dollar gift card for one of my lucky readers to enjoy a nice meal with their family. Just email me back with I Love Frisch's in the subject line. On Monday morning I will choose one reader as the winner and contact them by email for their address. Don't forget to stop by Frisch's for their $1 coupon book full of coupons for the kids. This is a great treat to give the kids on Halloween.

Saving the environment can also save you money. I know how hard it can be to try to be green. I have tried planting a garden, putting out rain barrels even had my husband put a bucket in his shower to catch the water while he is waiting for the water to get warm. Saving money is a great incentive to be green, turning off the lights, unplugging electronic devices, hanging clothes outside, wearing a sweater, let the sun help heat your house, put plastic on your windows and plenty more.
