It’s a rainy, gray morning here in Boston, so I stayed under the covers with M & m instead of going to yoga like I had planned. I even laid out my yoga clothes and mat, but I shut off my alarm and went back to sleep. Looks like my warm, comfy bed won this morning!
I whipped up an oldie, but goodie for breakfast this morning: Sweet Potato Oatmeal Pancakes. I totally destroyed the second pancake– it stuck to the pan and fell apart– so I didn’t include it in my photo. But, I can assure you it tasted better than it looked!
Grocery Shopping 101
Continuing with my financial series, my next post is about how I save money at the grocery store. I aim to spend less than $75 per week and my bill usually comes in around $65-70. Here’s how I save money at the grocery store:
Breville Juicer Raffle
Just a reminder that the raffle for the Breville Juicer ends tomorrow evening (Tuesday) at midnight. (I’ll announce the winner on Wednesday morning.) Be sure make your donation to our Team In Training page if you want a chance to win. You can check out the giveaway details here.

On Tuesday, September 7, I will host a Blog Bake Sale to benefit Team in Training! If you’ve never participated in a Blog Bake Sale, check out Meghann’s post about the rules and logistics. Her post is very detailed and explains how it all works. I’ll run the Blog Bake Sale on Carrots ‘N’ Cake in the same way.
