Saving dollars $ cents: D.C.'s blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. What a mess it was this Tuesday morning. Every year around this time, I thank my dear college friend for buying me the ultimate ice scraper as a gift when I first relocated to Washington. It's huge -- spans the entire back seat of my car -- but on a day like this, it's exactly what I needed to chip the sheets of ice that had formed on my car windows. I hope you were able to chip away the ice (or navigate the icy sidewalks) on your way in this morning. Now, onto what's happening in the D.C. area blogosphere.

From Life in the Village – some shots of the good folks who volunteered for the Pope Branch cleanup as part of a day of service on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. And from Park View, D.C. some shots of a volunteer day coordinated by Greater D.C. Cares and Park View Kids Zone.

The Georgetown Metropolitan offers this post on the “State of Georgetown 2011.”

Unsuck DC Metro has this suggestion for Metro for possible “revenue enhancement” on icy mornings like Tuesday's.

Even during Restaurant Week, some of D.C.’s finest restaurants are still a bit too pricey for some. We Love DC hears your plea and offers this post – When Restaurant Week isn’t cheap enough. Eat well without breaking the bank.

If staying on a budget is one of your resolutions for 2011, then Sweating the Big Stuff offers these seven tips for a budget plan that works. (And remember: It’s okay to have “fun” money.)

That's it for now. Thanks for reading, and have a great day. Be careful on that commute home. A reminder that there are currently delays on some MARC lines and on parts of Metro's Red Line. Might want to check with Dr. Gridlock before you head home.
