Hi <<First Name>>  

Hope you're staying healthy and cool this summer.

We've had a really hot time in Phoenix - more than 30 days of 110 degrees or hotter. Our water bill is really high as we try to keep our tress from going into shock.

We have a small grove of banana trees and the tallest ones are wilting, no matter how much we water them. They look tattered and tired. There are plenty of "pups" growing, so once the heat is done, we'll thin the bunch and let the young ones grow tall.

NEW VIDEO: Steve just shot a video about how he saves hundreds of dollars on teeth grinding night-time mouth guards. Be sure to scroll to the bottom to see it.

There are always ways to save money without sacrificing quality. Keep your eyes peeled ... and read more below.
Hope you save a boodle!

We’re making frugal fun!

Buy Meat in Bulk Online & Easy Way to Save Money

We have always thought about buying meat in bulk online, but have never jumped in until now. We were recently introduced to The Savory Butcher and their local fresh meat deliveries.

You know that we are bargain shoppers. However, the quality and the pricing that The Savory Butcher offers really piqued our interest. This is a really great way to lock in a good price on a large quantity of quality meat. If you don’t have time to hunt for meat bargains in the traditional way, this could save you a lot of time and money.

The prices are good, the quality is excellent and several of our friends and one of our daughters buy meat from Savory Butcher. Check and see if it’s in your area.

Is education important? Yes of course.

But is a formal education; public, private or parochial school and college—are they critical to success. Yes ... and no.

While researching the education chapter for our book “The MoneySmart Family System,” we came across some very interesting information. We found a list of very successful people who didn’t “succeed” in traditional educational environments.
