Cleaning the Microwave

I noticed today that I have been neglecting my microwave, so I attacked it!

Take a rag soaked with water and place in microwave. Cook on HIGH for 2 minutes, intermittently checking to make sure it hasn't dried out. After 2 minutes, the steam should have loosened the food particles and make cleaning a whole lot easier!

Check-Your-Rate Day

Take some time today to see if you can lower any of your bills:

Electric - what are you being charged per kwh?

Cell phone and home phone - are you using all of those features?

Auto insurance - do you need to raise your deductible? Do you have enough in savings to self-insure?

Credit cards - should you do a balance transfer for a lower APR?

Also check on internet service, water usage, gas and oil usage, etc. If you can't lower the bill by changing terms or companies, see what you can do to lower it on your end.
