    A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Kimberly of the U.S. News Alpha Consumer blog. The podcast is now available if you’re curious about what I sound like. You’ll also learn how I got started blogging and some of my best money-saving tips (although if you’re a regular reader, you already know those!).

    If you’ve found Chief Family Officer for the first time via Alpha Consumer, WELCOME! My favorite topics to discuss are family finances, cooking, and parenting. With prices on the rise lately, I’ve been working hard to keep my family’s expenses from rising along with them. I share my tips here at CFO, along with recipes, reviews, and lately, my foray into Weight Watchers.

    If you’re interested in reading more about The Drugstore Game, which Kimberly and I discussed, you may want to read some of my recent posts on the topic. You can also read about the details of some of my transactions and pick up a few tips on playing the game over at my other blog, CFO Reviews.

    And if that’s not enough to keep you busy, you can check out the Best of CFO.
