What's the point? -- Spring left us in the dust (literally), and spring cleaning never got scheduled, so we're looking at sprucing up the house these days. This site, which is run by the folks who used to work at the now-shuttered Budget Living, talks about all things home, including choosing a summer coverlet and polling people about what they do with their spare change and testing a cheesecake recipe.

What to look for --The site also has a book club. This month, the title is Heat: An Amateur's Adventures as a Kitchen Slave, Line Cook, Pasta Maker, and Apprentice to a Dante-Quoting Butcher in Tuscany. People who want to participate can read the book by June 26 and then talk about it online thereafter.
