Re: smart phone help needed

TuneIn Radio will have a wider array of better content than iHeartRadio ... the latter is just the new name for Clear Channel.

Re: Judicious July - Low / No Spend challenge

I had a large spend day but it was because I was out buying last year's winter weather gear (rain jacket etc) before the new stuff came in. So I spent, but I saved on things that I'd need to buy for this winter regardless.

Is anybody doing surveys on Amazon Mechanical Turk?

Re: 4 Ingredient Breakfast Frittata recipes

Thanks for these! I always found frittatas to be a good idea for frugal food, because they're good at any temperature and fresh or leftover. But they always seemed like such a challenge.
