    Default Social Security COLA will be 0.3% in 2017

    No, that's not a 3% increase in Social Security benefits in 2017. The COLA increase in January will be 0.3%, which will amount to an average of $4/month in extra income per recipient.

    Howie could get the cats some cheese and still have money left over!

    Cool

    Sorry Sam, that's only $4 extra, so no chainsaws this year, but you can have some more cheese!

    As much cheese as Sam eats, that tip about grating cheese yourself could save me $100's a year. AND I actually have TWO graters. I'm livin' large now!!!
