Hanks Weekly Hangouts #35 (June 22, 2008)

The Summer Savings Series is heating up over at The Money Life Network. Entries are flying in fast! Get your foot in now to be part of the excitement to win FREE $$$! MIB had some design issues this week that made for some trouble, but we got them all figured out and even tossed out a few fancy posts for the week that saw some good ink including $5 a Gallon For Gas; End Of The World, Or Ripe For The Picking, “Summer Savings Series” Tip #8 – Watch Movies And Play Video Games For Free, and even a revised repost How Do You Graciously Decline a Job Offer?

1. Ginger finds a good post about making your own rain barrels. Not a bad idea if you’ve got a lot of rain in the area; certainly frugal!

  • Hi Hank! Thanks for the link. I only wish I had some rain to fill a barrel! We are still watering our little garden to keep it alive. The grass? Well, it will have to struggle on its own for now. With a postage stamp yard, I am not too worried about it.

    I hope all is well with you and yours.
