New Super-Couponing Tips column: Clearance etiquette

This week's syndicated Super-Couponing Tips column is entitled "Clearance Etiquette," and my blog readers will know exactly what this one's about -- Dominick's stores closing in Chicagoland, and experiences I had shopping those store-end sales. I also received a fair amount of criticism via email for blogging about the store closings. Here's an excerpt from one of them:

"I find it disappointing that you spent more than two hundred dollars. I have always thought you were about saving money but if you have $200 to spend in one day, you don’t need to save money. I also know you have a stockpile at home and hope you’re giving this to the food pantry. It doesn’t seem right that you buy things you didn’t truly need. Only people in financial straits should have been allowed to shop these sales."

My Super-Couponing Tips column appears in newspapers around the country to a weekly readership of over 20 million people!

The eighteen-year-old quilt

Our beautiful daughter turns eighteen years old today.

Eighteen. Everyone says children seem to grow up so quickly, and it's true. Our daughter went from sundresses and sandals to high heels and prom dresses faster than I ever could have imagined.

Around her fifth birthday, I came up with the idea to make a quilt for her eighteenth birthday. I'd never made a quilt before, but I thought I'd figure that part out when the time came. And for the past thirteen years, I've been saving our daughter's favorite shirts as she outgrew them. Everything from T-shirts and sports jerseys to pajamas and sweatshirts all went into a bag in my closet. This month, I opened the bag and began sorting through all of the shirts. (And reading a few "how to quilt" websites...)

So many memories. A shirt from her junior bowling league. Many seasons of soccer jerseys. School plays. Vacations. Singing in choir. Girl Scouts. On and on.

Cutting into the first shirt wasn't easy, but I told myself that instead of keeping all of these pieces of her life in a bag on a shelf, I'd be turning them into something she could enjoy and love every day.

Game Day Recipe: Bacon Bronco Bites

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Good Cook. I have been compensated for this post. I am a Good Cook Kitchen Expert blogger selected by Good Cook to represent their brand. All opinions about Good Cook are my own.

The Super Bowl is less than two weeks away, and Good Cook asked its team of Kitchen Expert bloggers to come up with new recipes for game day snacks! As I thought about all of the appetizers we usually make for game day, meatballs are always on the must-make list for us.

So, here's an updated twist on the meatball, reinvented as a finger food with bacon, cheese, and the flavors of honey mustard and chipotle. They're quick to make too, so you can spend less time snack-making and more time watching the game. After one taste, my husband christened these "Bacon Bronco Bites!"

Jill Cataldo's Bacon Bronco Bites
Makes: About 24 meatballs

You'll need:

  • One pound of meatballs, homemade or store-bought (I used Cooked Perfect Angus Beef meatballs)
  • One cup of honey mustard chipotle sauce (I used Kraft Honey Mustard Chipotle "Anything" dressing -- Wish Bone makes one too.)
  • 24 slices of bacon (I used Safeway Thick Sliced Hickory Smoked bacon)
  • Half an 8-ounce brick of sharp cheddar cheese (I used Cabot Seriously Sharp cheddar)
  • Toothpicks
