There's still time, if you're reading this on publication day, to take advantage of the waning hours of Shop Maryland Week, the seven days when purchases can be made without having to pay state sales tax. It's promoted as a way for parents to save a few dollars when they're doing back to school shopping, so not everything is sold tax-free. Importantly, individual items costing more than $100 are taxed at the usual rate of 6 percent. Beyond that, figuring out which items are taxed and which are not is kind of hit and miss.

Eric Strassman's holiday shopping list used to include more toys, sweaters and jewelry than any electronics gear. Now, technology plays a bigger part - making up half of his shopping list, thanks to lower prices and more choices. "Buying a camera 10 years ago, you had one choice. You bought the instant camera or the 35 mm. Now you have the digital," said Strassman, who lives in Lutherville. "If you wanted audio equipment, you either bought a cheap stereo or expensive stereo. Now, you have MP3 players and iPods."

If you are a procrastinator like I am, and are lucky enough to live in close proximity to the maternal units you plan to celebrate on Sunday, then consider gifts of native plants instead of cut flowers or arrangements. Cylburn Arboretum will hold its annual Market Sale tonight and Saturday, with vendors selling wildflowers and native plants that should be adapted to the native climate --- meaning they won't require green thumbs or excess care to make them thrive. You might find it more convenient to hit Blue Water Baltimore's nursery sale on Sunday.

No doubt about it, running a family is an information-intensive job. There are meals to plan, schedules to run, gifts to buy, doctors to visit, and grocery shopping to tackle - to name a few. FamilyTime, a new organizer program from Westport, Conn.-based TimeSoft (Windows 95/98, $9.95), aims to help families keep track of all those activities quickly and easily. Using the software, each member of the family can create his or her own "profile." Those profiles let individuals maintain separate calendars and other lists of helpful data, such as gifts to give, appointments to make, or clothing to buy. But FamilyTime's real strength comes in the area of menu and shopping management.

The Ravens filled one of their biggest needs Thursday night by selecting Colorado's Jimmy Smith with the 26th pick the 27th pick in the 2011 NFL draft. During another crazy first round, the Ravens didn't get their slotted pick in on time but were still able to get their guy in Smith, a tall, physical cornerback with good cover skills. So now what? The Ravens have other needs on their shopping list at this year's draft, including a wide receiver, an offensive tackle and a pass rusher, and there are a bunch of players they could be targeting for tonight's second and third rounds . The Ravens have the 58th pick in the second round and the 90th pick in the third, and they have six Day Three picks to deal if they want to make a move.

Bad economic news can be good news for your diet in the long run.When the frills are gone, we go back to the basics. And this means by default we may be cutting the fat from our diets as well as from our budgets.Lean times mean lean meals. This doesn't mean you have to have a whole week's menus filled with hearty soups, beans with rice and boiled potatoes with cabbage. But it does mean you need to learn how tobalance more expensive meals with some of these low-fat, low-cost meals. And you can't get balance without learning to shop with a battle plan worthy of Operation Desert Shield.

Thousands of puppies are bought and sold every year during the holiday season, which means thousands of consumers end up unknowingly supporting puppy mills. Puppy mills are inhumane, commercial breeding facilities that place an emphasis on profits over the health of the dogs they sell. The breeding dogs at puppy mills live their entire lives in cages, typically in deplorable conditions. As a result, their puppies are often unhealthy and can carry infectious diseases. Two recent investigations by The Humane Society of the United States demonstrate the wide-spread consumer fraud and abuse that characterize the industry.

In response to your report on Baltimore City's population decline, since most of the people leaving are parents with school-age children, the city must consider ways to compete with the county schools ("Grow the city's population, but don't stop there," Nov. 29). Here are some ways Baltimore City could improve public education for its students: •Raise funds to cover costs by floating bonds, while seeking donations of money, books and supplies and holding fundraisers such as bazaars, festivals, ticketed performances and auctions.

While all of you are enjoying the New York Yankees' first appearance in the World Series since 2003, Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail and his staff will be mapping out the coming offseason and trying to figure out whether they have what it will take to make the team significantly more competitive than it was this year. You have to wonder. It's not like the Orioles are just a medium move or two away from putting a scare into the rest of the American League East. They need at least one big bat for the heart of the lineup and one of the corners of the infield.

There is a lot of suspense surrounding the Ravens' first-round pick in the 2008 draft. Will it be a cornerback or an offensive tackle? Or will general manager Ozzie Newsome stick to his philosophy of taking the best player available? The second round has even more excitement because the Ravens will probably select a quarterback from among Louisville's Brian Brohm, Delaware's Joe Flacco and Michigan's Chad Henne. "Kyle Boller set them back, what, how long has he been with the team, five years?"

A few good reasons to attend last night's Singles Summer Fling at Fresh Fields Whole Foods Market in Mount Washington: No one goes home empty-handed. The free samples. You don't have to pretend you're reading a book. The proximity to Starbucks.But possibly the best reason to shop for a significant other in a grocery store is the ability to attend "undercover," as Mary Lloyd Dugan, a radiant professional storyteller, put it.You can make like you're just stopping after work to pick up a salad for dinner and stumbled onto the party (held due east of the sushi)

With steely-eyed determination, she advanced into the mall. She did not glance at the carolers. Santa Claus was dismissed with a shrug. This was a woman on a mission.This was a woman with a Christmas shopping list.In one deft movement she snapped open her purse and removed the alphabetized, color-coded file. I saw columns of names, sizes, stores and -- my personal favorite -- "maximum spending amount."As she set forth on the shopping challenge I knew our paths would cross again.* 10 a.m.: Shopper noticed calmly explaining to confused cashier that the Susan B. Anthony dollar is really American currency.

SHELLTOWN, Md. - Eagles and ospreys and showers of bright warbler song. Mighty bald cypresses and hours of unbroken forest, studded with the blooms of wild azalea and native viburnum. From the quiet headwater swamps where we began to the wide open cordgrass marshes where we "took out" three days later, a recent kayak trip down the twisty old Pocomoke River was a joyous passage through spring. Less than a decade ago, such a trip might have been considered dangerous to one's health. The Pocomoke was on the list of America's most endangered rivers, and "For Sale" signs were posted along its banks.
