GAS PRICES GOT YOU FRUSTRATED??  Check the prices before you fill up at the pump to ensure you are paying the lowest possible price in your area.

Just click the link below and when you land on the Gasbuddy website type in your zip code and click the green 'search' button.

Its really that simple and very fast.
In addition to the website, they also offer app's for your smartphone ( i haven't loaded the app so I can't comment on it's usage).  
Addendum to this post!!  I have the Gas Buddy app on my Android smartphone and I love it.  Its accurate up to the second and you can use it on the fly.  What I mean is, it uses gps locating to find your location wherever you are and loads a list of all the stations in your surrounding area with their prices.  The list will even come up by price, listing the lowest to highest for your convenience.  I use my several times a week depending on my driving habits.  I highly recommend this one. 

Ideas for Recycling Egg Cartons

Whether you like your eggs scrambled or poached, nearly everyone has a carton of eggs in their refrigerator. Eggs are a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals. Eggs super charge your immune system and fight off all the nasty bugs you come in contact with. Eggs increase your visual distance potential and help prevent some eye disorders. Eggs are thought to reduce the risk of Breast Cancer, improve hair and nail growth & regulate brain functioning. So, eat up the eggs and if you are watching your fat intake, just eat the egg whites with a small taste of the yolk as the yolk carries most of the fat.

CAR or TRUCK as GREEN as can be...FUEL ECONOMY LABELS - what they look like and do.

In May 2011, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) unveiled the most dramatic overhaul to fuel economy labels since they were introduced 35 years ago. When the new labels start to appear in showrooms and online, shoppers will have more information at their fingertips than ever before. The redesigned label's provide the public with new information on vehicles’ fuel economy, energy use, fuel costs, and environmental impacts.
For the first time comparable fuel economy and environmental ratings will be available for all new vehicles, including advanced technology vehicles like electric cars. Consumers will be able to make comparisons – car by car – to ensure they have the best information to help save on fuel costs and reduce emissions.
