This week we're conserving and preserving everything from art, to trees, to battlefields, to -- of course -- cash!

Maybe you're trying to conserve energy this summer, and bravely turning off, or turning down, the A.C.? Or trying to save money, and forgoing your daily extra-tall-grande-venti iced coffee?

Whatever the case, we'll capture that spirit of Conserving and Preserving on this week's show.
