  • Meet my blogroll: Like Merchant Ships

    I’m not exactly sure when I “met” Meredith of Like Merchant Ships, but I quickly fell in love with her blog. She’s the sort of gracious, loving person who somehow manages to inspire rather than diminish. And she shares all kinds of wonderful ideas on her blog – crafts, cooking, cleaning, childcare, and more. I particularly love how she creatively stretches her dollars, and how generous she is with them. Who wouldn’t love to be the lucky recipient of gifts like these?

    Recently, Meredith ventured into Once-A-Month Cooking. She and Jessie spent six hours putting together 15 recipes (I think it worked out to 30 meals for each of them). She shared her freezer packing strategy at Frugal Hacks, where she writes a weekly column aptly titled “Cheerful Frugality.”

    If you don’t know Meredith already, please head over to meet her. She recently moved her domain and resigned her lovely site. She’s also got a handy Tumblr page where she links to favorite articles she’s found throughout the blogosphere.

    Previously: Meredith interviewed me last year (the podcast no longer seems to be available). One of the things we talked about was the price of eggs, which had been rising quickly at the time – since then, Trader Joe’s has held the price steady at $1.49 per dozen.

      I love this too! Sometimes I get stuck reading the same ones or lost for hours finding new ones that I end up not being that interested in. It’s nice to get a ‘review’ beforehand! Thanks.

      Cathy, what a surprise and honor! Thank you so much!

      For some reason the original BlogTalkRadio file was corrupted. I did not have a copy saved to my computer and can’t upload!
