Richard Cordray, Ohio's attorney general, sounds like he's ready to come down hard on Wells Fargo for all of the "mistakes" that they made in the foreclosure process. Watch the video here.

I've started to get into couponing and taking advantage of really good deals at the supermarkets and drug stores. Walgreens has something that they call Register Rewards.
