Good Saturday morning!

Wow! Taking a break from blogging is pretty tough. I have missed hearing from you (although I will admit I read some of your blogs this week!) Limiting my computer time was tough, but it was also very freeing.
Last night the swimming season was officially over. I love the swimming season, but I must admit I am glad that it is over. Maybe it's because I have a lot on my plate right now. Or maybe it's because the grueling schedule is tiring after 4 months. I don't know. I'm just glad that it's over.
Of course, I am not excited, AT ALL, that school starts in 48 hours. We did meet the teachers last week and they seem very nice. I cannot believe that this is the last year The Boy will be in elementary school. When did that happen?
I remember 5th grade. Vividly. It was not my best year.
Anyway...I am getting ready to post on Comparison tomorrow. But I need help! I want to do a Mr. Linky but it looks like you have to pay for it. Is that true? Has anybody else used this widget without having to pay for it?
If there is a fee for the widget, I probably won't buy it. Instead I will just email those who said they were going to write their own post on Comparison and I will link you directly from my post tomorrow. If you have decided that you want to write about it too, let me know so that I can link you.
Last but not least...This question has been burning in my blog post queue for awhile:
Are you strategic about making change?
I am not talking life changes here, I am talking about money.
A few weeks ago The Mister and I took the kids to get some ice cream and he was lamenting that I had so many pennies in my car but not any quarters, dimes, or nickels.
I learned something new about my handsome man that night: He strategically uses coins so that he doesn't end up with pennies. He likes to keep less than 5 pennies (to use only in moments when it will keep him from accumulating more pennies).
Occasionally I will do this when it is obvious, and results in getting back whole dollars. But not to keep from getting pennies.
I am interested in knowing if you do this too.
So the July Random Poll:
Are you a strategic money changer?
