Oreo Truffles

Go here to get a recipe for my new favorite chocolate dessert. I added 2 tsp. of flavoring to the cookie mixture. Either almond extract or mint extract. You can sprinkle almonds or crushed pepperming on top. Yum.

Diet Items

Watch for sales on exercise equipment and dieting items. Lots of folks are making resolutions--myself included. There will be much competiton for your dollar. Choose wisely and only  buy what you know you will really use.  Most home exercise equipment is rarely used ( guilty).

I have been BUSY!

I hope all of you saved this Christmas by shopping the many sales at retailers. I found there to be many deals due to the slow economy. Wait a couple of days and you will see prices continue to decline to clear out the old merchandise and put out the new spring items. Also, unwanted items will be returned to the store so if you missed out on something, it may be there now. Remember, saving is about how much you spend--not how much you save.
