Not sure that I need uses of beer other than drinking it. But if you do, then let Daisy from Add Vodka let you know what else beer does.

Get Rich Slowly has a post about saving for big expenses, like adopting. I never knew how much international adopting cost (thousands and thousands of bucks!).

And it’s cheaper for your pocket book, too. And everyone’s all about local these days, right? So why is anyone adopting internationally?

ReindeerNo, I don’t decorate. But my wife does. And she liked this post by Little House in the Valley on frugal holiday decorating.
