first_img TAGSGrocery Previous articleDonna’s Deals: 5 Things You Can Make With PeepsNext articleThese 3 steps will help you get out of debt this year Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Like anything in life, you have to find the right balance. That balance won’t be exactly the same for everyone, but there are 5 tips I shared that everyone should know:Savings coupons is only part of the plan1. It’s not about the couponsI’m going to let you in on a little secret that the producers of TLC’s Extreme Couponing (and every food company and grocery store chain out there) don’t really want you to know: Extreme grocery savings do NOT, for the most part, come from the coupons. The bulk of your savings will come from the store sales. The better the promotion, the bigger the savings, so the FIRST step in saving money on your grocery bill is to SHOP THE SALES. Please enter your name here 4. Change the way you meal planIf you normally wing it when it comes to meal planning, running to the store several times a week for last-minute dinner items, this step won’t be as painful as you might think. Instead of running to the store for your dinner supplies you’ll be able to run to your stockpile–a ready-made grocery store right in your own home. You may even find that maintaining a nice, varied stockpile by shopping the sales once a week saves you a whole lot of time, in addition to saving you from the expensive impulse and last-minute buys.5. Learn to match coupons to store salesIt is not by accident that using coupons is the last item on this list and not the first. Coupons can and do save you a ton of money on your grocery bill, but only if you follow these other steps first. When and if you make these changes in the way you shop–getting into the habit of shopping for only what’s on sale, buying enough to last your family 6-8 weeks, eating less meat, and planning your meals around your stockpile and what’s on sale–you will see a dramatic drop in your grocery bill, even without clipping a single coupon.The important thing to remember is that coupons come last, not first. Don’t buy something just because you have a coupon–manufacturer’s count on that! Wait for the sale, then use the coupon. Changing old patterns and shopping habits is never easy, but with these simple changes you really can cut your grocery bill in half.Just think of what you could do with an extra $75 a week!For the complete article, go here. The Anatomy of Fear Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your comment! From Living Well Spending Less.comLet’s face it–food is expensive. The average family spends just over 10% of their household income buying groceries–over $6,000 a year–and even while average wages have gone down, the price of food keeps going up. When you are just trying to feed your family, that is a pretty scary prospect.That said, as more and more people are beginning to realize, coupons can be a great way to save money on food. If you’ve ever watched TLC’s Extreme Couponing, you probably already know that sometimes those savings can be quite dramatic. The problem is that those dramatic savings often come from seasoned coupon users who have spent countless hours clipping & sorting coupons and searching for the very best deals.Quite frankly, who has time for that?center_img Thus, your goal from now on is to only EVER buy an item when it is at its lowest price. Period.2. Stockpile, stockpile, stockpileIn order to only ever buy an item at its lowest price, you must buy enough of it while it is on sale to last until it goes on sale again. This is key. Most items go on sale every 6-8 weeks, which means you need to buy enough to last your family that long. If you buy only a weeks worth, you will be forced to pay more the next time you need it because you didn’t buy enough.Stockpile, Stockpile, Stockpile!3. Eat less meatGoing vegetarian just a couple times a week could save you as much as $1,000 a year. Meat costs usually account for a significant portion of people’s grocery bills, so cutting out even a little will make a big difference over time. One of the ways my own family has kept our grocery bill to around $200-300 a month is by eating very little meat and honestly I am shocked at the prices whenever I do buy meat!

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Which cities across the U.S. have residents spending more than the median ceiling of household income to own or rent? Ten cities make the list of places where the gap is widest between what people earn and what they pay for housing, according to a study by the study, looked at the median monthly housing costs in approximately 500 metros to pinpoint the markets where residents are spending the most on their homes by dividing the median monthly costs for renters and homeowners by the median monthly household income. The study limited its rankings to one metro per state.With a median price list of $895,800 and  30 percent share of the median household income of $73,663 going towards housing for the average household, Santa Cruz in California topped the study’s ranking as the most unaffordable city in the country. However, there might be hope for buyers still looking to enter this market. The study pointed out that despite the large gap in home prices versus average household income, over the past 12 months the prices in this seaside city have remained flat with inventory rising 45 percent.If the West Coast has the most unaffordable city in the country, the East Coast is not far behind, with Miami, Florida taking the second spot on the rankings for the most unaffordable housing markets. A household earning a median income of $51,758 pays 29.7 percent of its income towards housing in this city where the median list price is slightly more than $385,000.Grants Pass, Oregon was third in terms of unaffordability with 27.1 percent of a median household income of $40,705 going towards housing. Home prices in this city, the study revealed stood at $334,000.Though Atlantic City, New Jersey is a relative bargain compared to most of the North East for retirees, according to the study, home prices here have been rising 6 percent year over year. With 26.9 percent of a median income of $57,514 going towards housing and a median list price at around $240,000, it is no surprise that the city was ranked fourth in this list.New York, New York with a median list price of $515,100 and 26.4 percent of the median household income going towards housing, rounded off the Top 5 on this list.Click here to read the complete list of the most unaffordable housing markets.

first_img Previous Article Next Article HR must seize major role over change managementOn 20 May 2003 in Personnel Today HR can play a decisive role in creating key business advantages by helpingorganisations learn how to manage change effectively. Neil Haywood, HR and change director at business services company Serco,said ability to manage change was a core different- iator – and should be ledby HR. “My premise is that organisations which develop a distinctive approachto change achieve a competitive advantage. This is a natural role for HRpractitioners to fulfil, if they are prepared to seize the opportunity,”he said. Haywood, in his seminar ‘Making change a competitive advantage’ argued thatHR should be the main catalyst for change and should take ownership of it byadopting a fresh approach. The HR team at Serco has designed a group management plan which enables itsbusiness to define the extent and pace of change required. “We areresponsible for interpreting our business strategy in people terms and are nowat the heart of all major business changes,” he said. He called on HR to become more of a problem-solving function, providing aservice for senior staff during times of market and business flux. Related posts:No related photos.

first_img The Australian Greens spokesperson for Fisheries, Senator Peter Whish-Wilson, says that New Zealand’s efforts in recent days to use its Navy to round up illegal toothfish poachers in the Southern Ocean shows how pitiful the Australian government’s efforts have been.Senator Whish-Wilson said, “We have had the Sea Shepherd pursuing the illegal vessel MV Thunder from Australia’s area of interest in the Southern Ocean and pulling out their deadly nets.“And the New Zealand government has deployed its Navy deep into the Southern Ocean to pursue two pirate vessels.“Yet the Australian government is frozen with inaction as these illegal activities are carried out under their nose.“The Liberals had promised to send the ACV Ocean Protector, our $150 million dollar, purpose built, Southern Ocean patrol boat, to protect our fisheries. It was part of the Coalition’s fisheries election policy document.“Instead they sent it to work off Christmas Island to be the world’s most expensive tropical water taxi. Now it is being decommissioned and ADV Ocean Shield has replaced it.“Then under pressure from the Senate Southern Ocean Inquiry, Customs promised again that they will conduct two 40-day patrols of the Southern Ocean this summer but there is no vessel on the horizon.“Two summers and two broken promises.“Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated fishing in the Southern Ocean is a major issue. Not only does it impact on fisheries, but it finances organised crime gangs.“We used to be serious about patrolling the Southern Ocean. In 2003, an Australian patrol vessel, the Southern Patrol pursued Patagonian toothfish raiders for 7,500 kilometres almost all the way to South Africa. We used to send our Navy to conduct patrols to scare away the pirates.“The Government must meet its election commitment and act by sending the Ocean Shield south. Otherwise it is allowing organised crime gangs to operate with impunity,” he concluded.Press Release; Image: Wikimedia View post tag: Navy View post tag: News by topic View post tag: waters View post tag: Zealand View post tag: Chasing January 13, 2015 View post tag: Newcenter_img View post tag: Poachers View post tag: Australian Training & Education New Zealand Navy Chasing Poachers from Australian Waters Back to overview,Home naval-today New Zealand Navy Chasing Poachers from Australian Waters Share this articlelast_img read more

Indiana Artisan Store Front, Camel IndianaArt available for purchase inside the Indiana Artisan location in Carmel, Ind. The Monthly Scoop on Arts in Communities Creativity is the secret to a thriving economy.According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, the production of all arts and cultural goods in the U.S. added $764 billion to the economy in 2015, including a $21 billion international trade surplus—a larger share of the nation’s economy than transportation, tourism, and agriculture.The nonprofit arts industry alone generates $166.3 billion in economic activity annually—spending by organizations and their audiences—which supports 4.6 million jobs and generates $27.5 billion in government revenue.One organization contributing to that staggering figure and working hand-in-hand with its community is the Indiana Repertory Theatre (IRT).In 2017, the IRT presented The Curious Incident of the Dog in he Night-Time. Based on the best-selling novel by Mark Haddon, this Tony Award-winning play tells the story of an autistic teen’s courage and growth as he solves a neighborhood mystery. The IRT was one of the first regional theatres granted rights to the play, and was the very first production to cast the leading role of Christopher with an actor who identified on the autism spectrum. Speaking with Playbill actor Mickey Rowe expressed how important his casting was towards creating opportunities for performers who are on the spectrum. This national attention raised local awareness of the production and its subject matter, allowing the IRT to work within our community and better serve audiences with differing sensory needs.The theatre consulted with Access and Inclusion expert Talleri McRae, as well as the Autism Society of Indiana, Anthem, Hands on Autism, and others. With their assistance, we were able to craft a theatre-going experience for a wider audience base, including preparatory materials for attending the theatre, designated quiet areas, hand-held manipulatives, and full sensory-friendly performances.One of the most moving moments to reflect the benefits of these efforts occurred during a post-show discussion, during which a student on the autism spectrum asked Mr. Rowe, with awe, how he was able to be married, have children, and perform in a professional play. This student had never envisioned a future in which such seemingly commonplace relationships and opportunities were available to someone who is autistic, and the example set by Mr. Rowe and this production opened up exciting new possibilities for many people around the country.As you’re going your holiday shopping this November, consider gifting arts and cultural experiences to your friends and family!

first_img Obesity is a serious public health challenge with wide-ranging and deep-rooted effects. Schools have an important role to play in the fight against childhood obesity. A broad curriculum, which emphasises healthy lifestyles and high quality PE is vital to this, but is too often given insufficient focus. We must also recognise that schools cannot provide a silver bullet for all societal ills. Teachers and school leaders are already stretched; they should not be held responsible for an issue that requires concerted action across the board. Families, government, industry, and other parts of the public sector all have a role to play in making food and drink healthier, and supporting children to make better choices. While schools have an important role to play in encouraging healthy lifestyles and exercise as part of a rich, broad curriculum, expecting too much of schools will not solve the problem, and risks further increasing teacher workload. As the government’s recently published obesity strategy acknowledges, this is a complex societal issue, requiring solutions from many different players.Last year the inspectorate carried out research to understand whether schools are demonstrably having an impact on levels of childhood obesity, and if there is any good practice out there from which other schools can learn. Inspectors visited 60 schools around the country, and found that most have responded well to government initiatives, including expectations around physical activity and healthy eating. But it was not clear that the specific interventions that schools make could, by themselves, overcome other factors that affect the weight of their pupils.PE, personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) and design and technology (D&T) all provide valuable learning for children, who may not be taught about healthy eating and the benefits of exercise at home.Reinforcing messages, imparting knowledge and developing skills is what schools do well. The report says that schools should focus on improving the things they are best placed to do, such as: Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 6pm 0300 013 0415 planning a challenging and well-sequenced curriculum, including learning about the body in PE and science, and about healthy eating and cooking providing ample opportunity for children to take physical exercise during the school day – with lots of opportunities to ‘get out of breath’ teaching particular skills like how to cook or how to dance updating parents on their children’s physical development, such as agility, balance and coordination Chief Inspector Amanda Spielman said: It is essential that schools do not get distracted from their core educational purpose. Education for health is essential and must be done well. But this will not happen if schools are devoting time and energy to things in which they are neither expert nor likely to have an impact. Lobby groups should not see schools as a ‘silver bullet’ to tackle childhood obesity, a new report from Ofsted says. Read Ofsted’s report: Obesity, healthy eating and physical activity in primary schools.center_img Clive House70 Petty FranceLondonSW1H 9EX Media enquiries Inspectors found that schools put too much effort into activities designed to influence parents without any evidence that they either have an impact or are what parents want. Eighty-three per cent of parents said they had been invited to an event at school. But many of them told Ofsted they are time-poor and what they really want is readily available information about what their child is doing at school: what they are eating and learning about, so that this can be followed up on at home.Parents also said they wanted more time for PE in the curriculum. And while extra-curricular activities are a good way to broaden the opportunities for children to learn new skills and to exercise, a quarter of parents said that their child couldn’t access all the clubs and activities they wanted.Amanda Spielman continued: As part of their research inspectors spoke to school senior managers, governors, school staff with responsibility for healthy eating or physical activity, teachers, teaching assistants, catering staff, school nurses, pupils and the pupils’ parents. They observed lessons related to healthy eating and physical activity, looked at extra-curricular provision, and at the content of school lunches.

first_imgThe Transport Secretary has today (21 August 2018) announced the appointment of Declan Collier as his preferred candidate for the role of Chair of the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) following an open competition. The former airport chief executive demonstrated an outstanding range of skills and a distinguished record in delivering for transport users following a high-flying career in aviation.Following standard parliamentary procedures for a public appointment, the Transport Select Committee will hold a public scrutiny hearing with Mr Collier later this year. The final decision on the appointment will be subject to the outcome of that hearing and he is expected to start work as Chair on 1 January 2019.Mr Collier will succeed the current chair Professor Stephen Glaister who steps down at the end of 2018 after 3 years, and will return being a non-executive director on ORR’s board.Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said: Media enquiries 020 7944 3021 It has been a pleasure and privilege to steer ORR as Chair over the last 3 years. In that time we have seen many changes and challenges in the rail industry: a period in which ORR has played its full part. This continues with the 2018 Periodic Review, which will set Network Rail’s price control from 2019. We have also matured our monitoring of Highways England as the company has progressed from its new beginnings. I am pleased to welcome Declan at this important time for both rail and road. His background will bring significant experience to the organisation and ensure we remain a strong, independent economic and safety regulator that protects the interests of passengers, freight customers, road users and taxpayers. The ORR performs an important role as the rail regulator and roads monitor for England and I look forward to Declan Collier taking up this position. Declan brings a wealth of transport sector knowledge, and I am confident he will be able tackle the diverse range of issues that the regulator covers. I would like to thank Stephen Glaister for his work, he has played a distinguished role as Chair, bringing important leadership during the 2018 periodic review process, which will set the regulatory framework and funding for Network Rail for the next 5 year control period”. ORR is the UK’s independent rail regulator and strategic roads monitor for England. Accountable to Parliament, it protects the interests of rail and road customers through its regulation of railway safety, and the performance and value for money of the rail and road networks, where government remains committed to major investment to improve outcomes for users.To assist with his induction into the role, the Transport Secretary expects to appoint Declan Collier as a non-executive member of the board for a brief period before he takes up the role of Chair. Out of hours media enquiries 020 7944 4292 Declan Collier has recently stepped down as CEO of London City Airport, a role which he held since 2012, and prior to that he was CEO of Dublin Airports Authority for 7 years. He is currently a non-executive board member of The Royal Schiphol Group and TCR International NV. He has broad experience in transport and business and has served as President of the World Association of Airports, Airports Council International (ACI); Deputy Chair of the Airport Operators Association (UK); and as Director of London First; Allied Irish Banks Ltd, and The Dublin Theatre Festival. Mr Collier has declared that he has undertaken no political activity in the last 5 years.ORR Chair Stephen Glaister said: Rail media enquiries Switchboard 0300 330 3000last_img read more
