Yes, there are some extreme couponers who manage to spend next to nothing at the grocery store. But you might not have the time it takes to be that sort of coupon pro -- or perhaps you wouldn't benefit from the effort because coupons usually aren't available for the items you regularly buy.

We've heard from plenty of people who feel that, in spite of the focus on so-called women's issues, their vote doesn't matter much in this election cycle. But they couldn't be further from the truth. Women in the United States earned the right to vote less than a century ago, and our foremothers fought long and hard for the privilege. They had to put up with misogynistic propaganda, much of it in postcard form, where they were compared to whiny little girls or ugly looking spinsters -- and where the not-so-subtle message was that giving rights to women was the same as stripping them away from men. Thankfully, there were plenty of penny postcards that encouraged women to become suffragettes -- pictures that remind us that liberty and justice are both ladies worth fighting for. -- Lylah M.

Avoid getting stuck in a line like this
One of the more unexpected results of Hurricane Sandy is lengthy lines at the pump. In order to save time (and your sanity), follow these tips to stretch the gas in your tank. It's easier thank you think!
1. Ease up on the pedals
Don't accelerate quickly or use a heavy foot when driving and try not to ride your break pedal, either. Both of these habits reduce your fuel-efficiency.
2. Use cruise control
Traveling at a constant speed is more fuel-efficient than fluctuating, so if you're driving on a road that lends itself to using the cruise control take advantage of the situation.

But the guardsmen, who usually act as angels to others during a national disaster, had an unusual guardian angel of their own.
"We were dead in the water until Victoria's Secret showed up," Captain Brendan Gendron, the Regiment's operations officer, told Wired magazine.
Victoria's Secret is slated to hold its annual fashion show at the New York Army National Guard's historic armory on 25th Street and Lexington in Manhattan on Wednesday, and producers were already in town to prep for the televised event when the storm hit. They had eight 500-kilowatt generators with them, and they were happy to put them to good use. Soon, the soldiers had power and hot water again.

I'll always be an entrepreneur at heart. As a teenager, I spent a lot of time reading about women who started small businesses at their dining room tables and grew these enterprises into something incredibly successful. During college I took the inspiration to heart and started my own floral design business. Now days, I always have a new business idea churning in my brain. Hearing success stories of other people, never gets old and it's always helpful to have role models. Here are a few of my favorite women entrepreneurs that I find inspiring: - By Chelsea Fuss
