Now I realize this is a magazine normally read by our parents or in doctor’s visiting rooms but my dad gifted me a subscription and sometimes I find the most interesting articles.  For instance the info I’m going to share with you. 

The October Issue is devoted to getting great deals on anything.  The piece begins with the story of a family who decided that they would spend on $100 for an entire month – this excludes mortgages, electricity bills etc.  It includes all other frivolous expenses including excessive grocery shopping.  By the end of the month the family had saved $2000 and their family bonds were even stronger.  BTW included in the spending was gas.  I personally only really drive from work to home and back but with the cost of gas being $4.00/gallon here this costs me $250 a month.  Hellooo Prius.

Back to topic:  Next RD lists many, many websites where you can find rebates, coupons, free shipping etc.  I’ve included some of them below.  Try them out.  Let me know what you think.

Another great article is on the new book, “Wisdom” By: Andrew Zuckerman.  

“The greatest gift from one generation to the next?  It’s wisdom gained from experience.  Award-winning photographer Andrew Zuckerman traveled to seven countries, flew 65,000 miles, and drove 5,000 more, all in a quest to ask 50 distinguished individuals ages 65 years and older what they would like others to know.”


Desmond TuTu, Jane Goodall, Clint Eastwood, Lella and Massimo Vignelli, Nelson Mandela, Jacques Pepin, Judi Dench, Buzz Aldrin, Madeline Albright, Alan Arkin, Frank Gehry, Henry Kissinger, Dave Brubeck, and many more.  

Here’s one passage I found interesting:

“Each one of us can make a contribution.  Too frequently we think we have to do spectacular things.  Yet if we remember that the sea is actually made up of drops of water and each drop counts, each one of us can do our little bit where we are.  Those little bits can come together and almost overwhelm the world.  Each one of us can be an oasis of peace.”

“Happiness is when I see others happy.  Happiness is a shared thing.”

-Desmond Tutu
