The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of activity on the personal front. We did get to see our first Minnesota Twins game at the new Target Stadium, which was a lot of fun. I just wish I’d re-read Saving Money at the Ball Park before I left. Yikes, was it ever expensive!
Anyway… a Happy Father’s Day to all of you Dads out there and here are some good reads to get you in the frugal living mindset:
Holy Cow! Did you know you can grow oranges in Canada?? I know know thanks to the great guest post over at $5Dinners. There just may be hope for this northern Minnesota gardener yet!

Travels with Children has the go-to guide for where to get the best deals on Minnesota attractions.
