Tip of the Day: Money Saving Links

I've been going for a lot of walks lately since the weather has been so nice and occasionally we end up at the library.  Quentin loves to pull down all the books while I look through magazines.  I have gotten some good tips from Consumer Reports and Real Simple magazines that I thought I would pass on.

Consumer Reports top 5 recommended toilet paper:

  1. White Cloud 3-ply Ultra Soft and Thick (Wal-Mart) | $.25 per 100 sheets {Best Buy}
  2. Quilted Northern Ultra Plush | $.38 per 100 sheets
  3. Great Value Ultra Strong (Wal-Mart) | $.27 per 100 sheets
  4. White Cloud Soft & Thick (Wal-Mart) | $.19 per 100 sheets
  5. CVS Premium Ultra | $.40 per 100 sheets
