Thrifty Tips for Thursday August 16, 2012



My favorite online learning platform Khan Academy now has an amazing Computer Science program on their site.  John  Resig of Khan Academy says of the new program "Over everything else we wanted to emphasize creativity and exploration and make it approachable for people of all ages, including young kids."  Sound cool? 


There are lots of interesting scholarships out there, and I have a  nice one to share with you.  It is a contest from Jif but the prize is a $25,000 college fund!  This contest is for children ages 6-12.  The objective is to make the most creative peanut butter sandwich using Jif's peanut butter or Hazelnut spread.  This contest ends on October 11, 2012.  If your kids are older, you may want to look into the Stuck at Prom Duck brand Duct Tape College Scholarship Contest.  This year's is over, but you can bookmark the page, and check out last year's finalists and winners.  Myself, I can't even handle the duct tape wallet. 


These ebooks were free at the time of my posting.  Always check the price before you download.

There are two things on sale this week that I absolutely love and really wanted to find a recipe for.  Albertsons has eggplant on sale this week for $1 each and Fry's has Italian sausage on sale for $1.99 for 18 oz.  Try this Sausage-Stuffed Eggplant Recipe.  For this recipe, remove the sausage from three of the casings and freeze the other two for a later recipe (I suggest sausage and peppers, you can buy a bag of Kroger frozen peppers & onion for a little over a dollar and fry them up for an really great sandwich or to top a pasta.
