Thing the Third: There is a great run-down of the Affordable Care Act on Reddit. Seriously, a guy went through and explained it paragraph by paragraph in plain English! Really interesting reading. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.
Thing the First: Have a birthday coming up? Check out this huge list of birthday freebies! I've signed up for the ones that looked best to me, and set up a filter so that the emails will all go to a special folder. When my birthday comes up, I can just look through and plan a whole week of fun freebies!Thing the Second: A new blog to love: FreeOurKids! The author realized how much they were spending on kid-related stuff and decided to take back her money. Her goal was to spend no money on kid stuff for 2013 - no toddler food, no toys, no clothes, no diapers. She switched to cloth and used freecycle and taught her kid to eat what was placed in front of him. I love it!
