  • Apologies for sound quality today. This is the first time we’ve had three people in the studio and it was a challenge to get three mikes into a two-channel mixer. The content is great, but you’ll have to put up with some audio glitches. I’ll take donations for a larger mixer 🙂Matt & Janelle Recording the Financial Excellence Podcast

    Fabulous tips, as always. I would also add making your freezer your friend when it comes to saving those leftovers. After a dish has gone 2 days without being polished off, I put the leftovers in the freezer for a future quick meal. Bread cubes from day-old bread in the freezer make a good, frugal base for bread pudding or homemade stuffing.
