We decided to take our own stab at the technique to see if we could replicate the outcome and devise our own how-to. Continue Reading

On my New Year’s Resolutions list, there are always some standards: Drink more water, eat out less, exercise more, and save money. I have gotten pretty good at most of these things (with the exception of eating out less – does ordering more takeout count?), but I could always stand to save more money.
