7 tips for saving big with coupons

MomsLikeMe hosted a live chat Thursday night with with local coupon blogger Emily Lyon of Clever Housewife. Lyon says she's not really a fan of the TV show Extreme Couponing because it's caused a lot of stores to change their coupon policies and it also distorts the idea of how much you can really save week to week.

She spends about two hours a week researching sales, matching coupons and putting together a shopping list. She spends about $50-$75 a week on groceries.

Faith leaders to unite for statewide prayer service Tuesday

Faith leaders to unite for statewide prayer service Tuesday

MODESTO - The evening before the California legislature’s constitutional deadline to pass a balanced budget, leaders of all faiths will gather in cities across California to pray that legislators have the strength and vision to "Stand up for California" and our seniors, children and struggling communities.

A press release Tuesday announced prayer vigils will be held simultaneously in five California cities, in which interfaith leaders will remember the children, families, seniors, people with disabilities and other Californians who have suffered harm because of budget cuts already made. To avoid another $9.6 billion in devastating cuts to families, the clergymen and women will pray that legislators have the strength to maintain existing revenues.

Modesto's gathering will take place at Tuesday, June 14 at 5 p.m. in front of Senator Anthony Cannella's office located at 918 15th Street.
