Money hints for this week:
Whenever you are buying clothes pay cash for them instead of putting them on a credit card. If you use a credit card you will pay more for the clothes, they will go out of style, or wear out long before you will get them paid for.
Put back a certain amount of money toward purchases and wait until  you have this amount before buying the item.
Put back a certain amount of money for special treats, such as taking a weekend vacation.

Sea Shell Hors D’oeuvres
1 cup shredded carrot
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 t. celery salt
1 cup finely chopped fresh broccoli
24 large seashell macaroni
Bring cheeses to room temperature. Blend cheeses and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the carrots and broccoli and blend thoroughly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for two hours. Cook seashell macaroni for 12 minutes. Drain and cool. Stuff each shell with mixture and cover with plastic wrap until ready to serve. I won “Best Cook” in Morgan County for this recipe. I hope you will like this recipe. It is very good to serve at a party.
