Description of Labels


When you look on the right column of Making Cents of It you might notice a list of labels.  You can click the label to see only posts in that category or you can click the label at the bottom of any post to find similar posts.  Here is a description of the main labels I currently have on Making Cents of It. Additional labels, such as store names are not listed here.
