Thrifty Tuesday: Brand Name or Generic?

Brand Name vs. Store Brands: How to Get the Best Bargain


Supermarkets stock dozens of options for any given food item, and if you're trying to save money, generic or store brands usually offer a better deal. However, this isn't always the case. So, which products will get you the most bang for your buck?

According to Time, many products from store brand lines -- like Target's Archer Farms and Whole Foods' 365 Everyday Value -- are produced at the same factories as brand-name companies. The ingredients are nearly identical, but the packaging is different.

Don't eat this stuff!

Xtreme Eating 2013
Extremism Running Amok at America's Restaurant Chains


A milkshake with a slice of apple pie blended right in. A 3,000-calorie plate of pasta. A breakfast that includes deep-fried steak and pancakes (and hash browns and eggs and gravy and syrup). Obesity rates may show signs of leveling off, but it looks like America’s major restaurant chains are doing everything possible to reverse the trend, according to the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest. The group unveils the latest "winners" of its Xtreme Eating Awards in the current issue of its Nutrition Action Healthletter.

Good thing we love our kids so much, because they're not always appealing.

25 Most Annoying Kid Habits


There is no love on Earth like a mother's love. It's unconditional and all-consuming and more powerful than anything else I know. And we love our children completely: Their hands, their faces, the way they smell, their voices, the way they look when they're sleeping ... All of them.

Well, all of them, except for a few little things. In fact, some things about our kids, we simply can't stand.

Awesome mom gives 13 year old 18 rules for his cell phone

Mom's 18-Point iPhone Rules for Son


Thirteen-year-old Greg Hoffman had been begging his parents for an iPhone all year. So on Christmas morning he was thrilled to find the object of his desire under the tree, but there was a catch.

The phone came with an 18-point set of terms and conditions that he had to agree to before the phone could be his. And the agreement did not come from Apple or the phone provider, it was from his mother.

"Merry Christmas! You are now the proud owner of an iPhone. Hot Damn! You are a good & responsible 13 year old boy and you deserve this gift," the agreement begins. "But with the acceptance of this present comes rules and regulations."

Read the article here.

Bullet-proof doors and windows, security fencing, surveillance cameras, more armed law enforcement and even pepper spray could be in the cards for Marion County public schools.

And county residents could be asked to pay a sales tax to cover the cost.

The School Board on Thursday directed Superintendent George Tomyn to prepare a comprehensive report on the cost of those measures, all designed to beef up school security in the aftermath of the Connecticut mass shooting.
