    I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Zappos.com.  I received product samples to facilitate my review. Have you heard of Zappos?  One of my very first interactions with Zappos was a tour of their headquarters just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.  (Actually my very first interaction was having my good friend Lucretia introduce me to the founder, Tony Hsieh at a SXSW Cocktail party–not that he’d ever remember our 10 second conversation).  But back to the tour–Wow, what an experience.  Talk about an awesome corporate culture and a place that…

    It’s that time of year again! The ever-popular Pumpkin Spice Latte is now available in Starbucks, with other coffee shops around the country rolling out their own version of this yummy coffee delight. But what happens when you are craving one, but don’t feel like plopping down the $4 for a coffee?

    Buying a home is a big decision; that’s why it’s a smart move to have as much information with you as possible when you go to the bank and apply for a mortgage. Having your entire financial life flashed right before your eyes can be an overwhelming experience, especially if you’re not prepared for it. Buying a home is a big financial commitment, so before you sign on the dotted line use these tips to make sure you know what you’re getting into. Make sure to get a pre-approval from your bank.

    For the last few years, I’ve contemplated getting new living room furniture.  But there was nothing wrong with the furniture we already had, so I wasn’t in any hurry.  We don’t have a means of transporting furniture, and I didn’t want to invest a whole bunch of money in a replacement for something that didn’t really need to be replaced.  But the old set was a hand me down we had received several years ago, and it was 20+ years old.  The pieces were in very good shape for their age, but the patterned upholstery had never really been my style, and I was always…

  • Our yard and garden – five year update

    Frugal Babe
    30 Jun 2014 | 11:26 am
    Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of moving into our house and getting our dog back (best day ever!)  This place has certainly come a long way in half a decade.  We finished the basement, which has been a huge improvement.  And the yard has gone from being a field of weeds to being a place we love – we’re out there all the time, and we still marvel at how much it’s changed since we bought the house.  Here’s the back yard when we moved in: Here it is today:   In the first picture, everything in the yard is a weed other than the handful of bushes and trees.
  • Should we prioritize our taxable savings over our retirement accounts?

    Frugal Babe
    16 Jun 2014 | 2:46 pm
    My husband and I have always been big fans of retirement accounts.  We both opened 401(k) accounts when we started our first corporate jobs in our early 20s.  When we left those jobs to become self-employed, we rolled the funds over to IRAs.  But we had a period of about 18 months when we didn’t contribute to retirement savings because we were barely earning enough to cover our mortgage in our new self-employed life.  As soon as possible though, we set up monthly contributions to our IRAs.  In the beginning, it was only $100 a month into each account, but it was something.  And…

    We’re not usually procrastinators when it comes to projects, but this one took a while.  Back in January, I ordered a world map wall mural when it was on sale on Zulily (normally $100, I got it for $40).  And then it just sat in its box for five months.  We had never hung wallpaper before, and I think I was a little daunted contemplating the process. Also back in January, I bought wallpaper paste and a little tool to smooth out the paper.  Those also just sat here for the last five months. Yesterday I decided we needed to just get on it with it.  Partly because I was tired of…

I never set out to have them like this, I just started liking how they were looking. images would always have a shelf-life, in my opinion. sure, a dolphin with ‘CANCUN 4EVER’ makes sense for a few days over Spring Break… but it might not have as much meaning when I’m 40… which is in… 2 years. fuck. let’s move on.

Seniors, for instance, may be living off of retirement funds and social […]

  • Remove stains from baby clothes

    Sara Noel
    24 Jul 2014 | 8:54 am
    Baby clothes collect a lot of food stains. Remove them by using a bar of Fels-Naptha or applying dishwashing liquid and one tablespoon ammonia. Rub gently and rinse, then place the garments outside in the sun. It works as a natural bleach. You can use an applique or patch to cover up stains, too. The first reader has another suggestion for stain removal: Stain remover:   Put dishwasher powder such as Cascade in a pan and dissolve it in warm water, then let the garment soak in it overnight. Wash the garment with a cup of the powder and regular soap just like any other piece of laundry.

If scorched marks remain, add a baking soda paste of baking soda and vinegar, or baking soda, dish liquid, a bit of water and a dryer sheet (such as Bounce), and let soak overnight. Scrub with a green Scotch-Brite pad or a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. If you still have some stubborn marks, you can use oven cleaner or products such as Bon Ami, Cameo or Bar Keepers Friend.

    Yard sales are events that homeowners and apartment dwellers hold to earn a bit of extra cash. Some people have yard sales to clear their homes before they move, and other people have yard sales to get rid of items after a divorce. Yard sales have a multitude of useful items that a frugal shopper can snag for an outrageously low price. People sell their books, movies, furniture, clothing, electronics, household appliances and collectibles at yard sales. A person can furnish an entire several-bedroom home with only a few hundred dollars just by visiting local yard sales. Additionally, smart…

    John Wedding

    The pillar of responsible personal finance is to spend less than you earn.  If you’ve heard that once, you’ve heard it thousands of times. There are three ways to work towards spending less than you earn: Earn more. Spend less. Both 1. and 2.

    A washer and dryer are mainstays in many households.  They are in our household, for sure. We bought a used washer and dryer set four and a half years ago.  Over the past couple of weeks, the washer was whining loudly.  First we heard it within the drain cycle, then in the spin cycle.  When it started squealing during the wash cycle, I sensed that its time was almost over, because that sounded like a transmission problem. Our family had done some repairs on it already to fix a bent support frame, but a new transmission runs upwards of $100.00.  Considering we paid $200 for the whole…

    Besides using old tshirt and tshirt material for "yarn" to make rugs, bags and the like, the material can be used in a lot of different ways! Cut the front and back out, then fold them in fourths and sew them together at the edges. Sew an "X" or other design all the way across it to hold the layers together: Hot pad made! Cut two or three inch squares and use them for disposable makeup or

  • Spinach Stuffed Steak

    Jenn @ Frugal Upstate
    28 Aug 2014 | 6:39 am
    I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for the Beef Checkoff. I received products to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating Beef.  Mmmm.  I’m a red meat girl from way back–there’s nothing quite as good as a nice cut of beef cooked rare.  The family joke is if you want to cook me a steak, just walk a cow past a grill and I’m good! For the past several years we’ve been eating mostly venison at the Frugal Upstate household because Yankee Bill is a deer hunter, and when…
  • Back to School with Zappos!

    Jenn @ Frugal Upstate
    27 Aug 2014 | 6:26 pm
    I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Zappos.com.  I received product samples to facilitate my review. Have you heard of Zappos?  One of my very first interactions with Zappos was a tour of their headquarters just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.  (Actually my very first interaction was having my good friend Lucretia introduce me to the founder, Tony Hsieh at a SXSW Cocktail party–not that he’d ever remember our 10 second conversation).  But back to the tour–Wow, what an experience.  Talk about an awesome corporate culture and a place that…
  • Ceramic Nonstick Cookware — Green Life at Walmart!

    Jenn @ Frugal Upstate
    22 Aug 2014 | 7:35 am
    Have you heard of ceramic non-stick cookware?  I stopped using most non stick cookware several years ago because I was a bit concerned about the Teflon coating, especially after it got scratched or overheated (which mine inevitably did).  I’m a good cook, but I’m not a particularly neat or careful cook. I have seen ceramic coated cookware in the stores, but was pretty happy keeping to my cast iron pans.  Then last spring when we were down at Walmart Headquarters we were given the opportunity to speak with the CEO of Green Life and use some of their products for a cooking…

    Is your teen or tween the kind of kid who likes to be different, to show their individuality and to make things themselves?  Then have I got a back to school craft project for them–create a custom Duck Tape Lunchbox out of Duck brand duct tape! The kind folks at Duck sent me a whole fabulous tote full of their products which they sell at Walmart to play with this summer.  There was all sorts of cool stuff. Included were a ton of different patterned rolls of tape–solid neons, silver, photo realistic macaroni, chevron, quilted and more.  There were 10 sheets of Duck Tape Fabric,…
  • Jack Daniel’s Smoked and Grilled Burgers.

    Jenn @ Frugal Upstate
    20 Aug 2014 | 7:33 am
    Looking for a different way to make your Labor Day burgers this year?  Why not try smoking them! That’s right, take your regular burger recipe up a notch by adding delicious smoke to the equation.  Don’t worry,  you don’t need a smoker, just your regular grill, some Great Value Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil, and a bag of Jack Daniel’s Smoking Chips. What are Jack Daniel’s Smoking chips?  Well–Whiskey (or bourbon–there’s some argument) is aged in oak barrels, and Jack Daniels only uses NEW barrels–so once a barrel is used, it isn’t…

    Back to school season is here, and if you are packing your kids’ (or your husband’s) lunches this year, chances are that you will be making a lot of sandwiches. Instead of sending your kids to school with store-bought pickles, why not make your own?

After my divorce I gave up financially.  While my bills were paid, my focus wasn’t on paying down credit card debt, student loan debt or planning ahead.  My plan?  I had none.  I just wanted to tow the line and keep moving forward as if I didn’t have demons lurking in my financial closet.

  • How To Stop Hiding From Your Debt Conquer It Once And For All

    Ginger
    26 Aug 2014 | 4:50 am
    Whether loans or credit card debt, the old saying ‘Out of sight, out of mind,’ won’t do you much good. In fact, it can lead to disaster. You have to face your debt squarely or it’s going to demolish your financial future. This is especially true when it comes to credit card debt. You can try to dance around your debt load by paying the bare minimum. When you do this, the only winner is the credit card company. Every time you pay only the minimum, your debt gets larger and larger thanks to compound interest. Avoiding your debt by giving it the bare minimum isn’t…

On top of that, keep your phone and/or computer near you so you can retrieve specific data from your…

    As we prepare to celebrate Labor Day weekend, I can’t think of a better way to enjoy the holiday than kicking back and spending time with loved ones. This is a perfect time to fire up the grill and toast to a great Summer with a cocktail (or two) and cold beers.

  • Coffee Processing Wastewater: a Great Source of Energy

    Jeff McIntire-Strasburg
    27 Aug 2014 | 9:58 am
      What do you do with your coffee waste? You may add the grounds to your compost bin, or put them directly onto your roses and other plants as a fertilizer. If you’re in the business of coffee processing, though, you’re dealing with much more waste… particularly wastewater. According to Dutch sustainable agriculture non-profit UTZ Certified, every cup of coffee we drink requires 140 litres (nearly 40 gallons) of water to process. After that water’s used, it’s full of organic material. If it simply gets discharged into other water sources, as it often does in…

    I know, I know – it feels nothing like Fall right now! Despite a polar vortex-y beginning of August that was downright pleasant, Summer’s back with a vengeance here in flyover country: heat and humidity make any time outside miserable. But I also know that, come October, I’m going to really want a pot full of kale and white beans, and I’d love for that kale to come out of my backyard.  So, time to get the Fall vegetable garden started.

    The Rails to Trails movement has a wide variety of transportation repurposing projects to its credit: from New York City’s High Line – a park/walking space on an old railroad trestle – to Missouri’s state-spanning Katy Trail. In Cleveland, clean transportation proponents have take a look at former streetcar rights-of-way, and thought “Hey… those could make good protected bike lanes.” They could also bring some economic activity to locations largely deserted since the streetcar ran by them. That’s the genesis of the Midway project, which Cynthia…

[. . .] But Detroit, the political entity, is dead. That's the crux of this.   Politics.  Not the fact that Detroit has been a craphole of crime and corruption for years.   In 2011, Republican Governor Rick Snyder signed into law Public Act 4, which gave the state the power to place cash-strapped cities and school districts under the control of state-appointed emergency managers. In 2012,…

As a reminder, the job of the Republican Party is to be different from the Democrat Party.  When one republican senator is touting his accomplishments of contributing to social programs, where is that difference?  And don't say "Foreign Policy".  There are 99 other self admitted experts of 'Foreign Policy' in the Senate and 435 'experts' in the House.  One more note about elections.  They work both ways.  If a candidate smears over half of his voting base as racist bigots in a…
  • You Won't Believe What Chelsea Clinton Said About Money

    24 Jun 2014 | 4:31 pm
    Well, you just might.   And yes, I Buzzfeeded the title to this.  Before the quote-- let me clarify this-- Chelsea is now a grown up who is married, living under her own roof and has been stumping for her mom on more than one occasion. So she's fair game and open for criticism.  “I was curious if I could care about (money) on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t, [. . .]“It is frustrating, because who wants to grow up and follow their parents? I’ve tried really hard to care about things that were very different from my parents … it’s a funny thing…
  • The Pig Trap

    22 May 2014 | 8:25 pm
    Apt allegory for the sign of the times.We tooled around his property, drinking beer and dumping corn and veggies here and there at strategic points, and then we came to another clearing with a strange metal object. Kevin put the truck in park and told me to hop out with him. There were three eight-foot pieces of crude steel tubular fencing that looked sort of like the metal barricades that get put up at parades for crowd control, but about five or six feet high, and forming half a hexagon They were obviously hand-made; they just didn’t have the finish of a commercial product. Kevin grabbed…
  • To Fulfill An Overdue Obligation

    17 Apr 2014 | 6:58 am
    I was challenged to do blog posting a while back by the Sith Lord Darth Aggie so here it is.As my kids are getting older and needing more attention, a part time job I enjoy while the kids are in school and just plain burned out on politics in general, blogging has become less and less of a priority to me.That and the last few times I've sat and stared at the screen and couldn't think of a damn thing to type at the time.But there is good news. AC/DC isn't retiring after all.

    Kim Rowley

    I was excited to be chosen to participate in Best Buy’s Audio Fest featuring Samsung. I received a Samsung Wireless speaker HUB and two Samsung Multiroom M7 Wireless Speakers in white to review.  My friend, Tracy and I decided to tackle the process of setting this up this afternoon at her house.  Mind you, this may have been much easier and faster for us to have our teenage children set up, but it was nice to catch up with an old friend. And by old, I mean long-established, not elderly, or do I? Anyway, first we had to connect the LAN cable from her wireless internet router to the…
  • Kim’s New Car: 2014 Nissan Rogue

    When my youngest daughter turned 16 last month, I thought we’d be able to share a car for awhile, especially since I work from home and don’t like to drive anyway. And with three other kid drivers, I wanted to hold off paying even higher car insurance premiums. Well, with her wanting to drive to school and getting a job, the sharing wasn’t going so well.  Since I’ve loved the Nissan Rogues since they were first released and have researched them extensively, I set out for the best deal that included the options I wanted.  I really wanted the taupe color, but that was…

    I have been ordering my daughter, Mallory’s contact lenses from Contacts America since 2009 as they’d had the best price on Pure Vision contact lenses every year since then. Well, today after we saw our eye doctor, I again researched the best prices on PureVision Regular and Toric lens (she inherited my astigmatism), and this year Contact Lens King was the winner, er King of the contact lens price comparison wars! Considering that Contact Lens King offers Free Shipping (that they upgraded to Priority Shipping for free) plus I was able to get 15% off with Contact Lens King coupon…
  • Toni&Guy Haircare: My hair is now my best accessory

    Kim Rowley
    21 Aug 2014 | 10:28 am
    My mom has always had short thin hair and always told me how she wished she had my long thick hair. Guess I got those genes from my father! I have had long hair most of my life, only cutting it into a short bob after the twins were born so I wouldn’t have hair in their little faces when holding them and then just above the shoulders the two times I donated my hair to Locks of Love. I don’t think I’ll ever have short short hair as I think I have a thick neck, so I like the hair covering up my neck (yes, I’m a tad self-conscious). You’ll notice I rarely am even…

    Miss Thrifty

    If you can remember when Kurt Cobain was still alive (a perturbingly long time ago now), chances are that you have a couple of floaty, cotton mix dresses still hanging around. You know the ones I mean: simple, printed dresses with buttons down the front. I remember liking these dresses, as a body image-obsessed teenager. This was because even though they were all mid-calf length, which shortens the leg and widens the calf, they were quite… forgiving. And they looked good with Dr Martens. I am sure you won’t be surprised to learn that, despite the solemn preoccupation with calf width, at…

    You may have noticed that things have been a little quieter around here over the past couple of weeks. There’s a good reason for that: I’ve started a new job. Fortunately everything is settling down, and I’m having a ball at work. This is how my new-look day gets under way: Yes indeed: I’ve been reborn as a commuter. The new office is a two-hour train ride away, in Manchester, so I’m getting accustomed to the early starts.

  • Slow Cooker on Holiday: Four Camping Recipes

    I recently mentioned that on our recent glamping holiday, my slow cooker came with us. Now while I admit that this marks a new development in my relationship with my slow cooker, from one of love to one of obsession, it turned out to be a great idea. Seriously: if you have room in the car boot or in the suitcase, do it! One reason why I am so attached to my slow cooker is that it makes life so much easier, as well as cheaper. I can throw a few ingredients and leftovers into the pot before I head out to work, then return home in the evening to a readymade dinner. It turns out that when you are…

  • Four Tips for Glamping on a Budget

    Miss Thrifty
    25 Jun 2014 | 4:28 pm
     I am not overly keen on the term ‘glamping’ (‘glamorous camping’). It doesn’t matter how swish the canvas is: there is nothing glamorous about mud and communal toilet blocks. Sometimes the prices are so lofty, you could get a four-star hotel room with an en-suite bathroom for the same money. You could argue that from a personal finance perspective, glamping is a mug’s game. But what I love – what I really, really love – is glamping on a budget. It can be done! This year we spent an idyllic bank holiday weekend at Hidden Valley Yurts in…

  • Chefs and Doctors Buy Generic; Should You?

    Could knowing when to buy generic save American consumers billions of dollars a year? That's the estimate of a recent study by economists at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and Tilburg University in the Netherlands. The researchers found, for instance, that healthcare professionals are more likely than other consumers to buy cheaper private-label headache remedies, although oddly there is a preference for name-brand alkalizing effervescent. The study suggests that if everyone bought store-brand alternatives to big-name consumer packaged goods, the savings would amount to…

    Inexpensively is more than 10 years old. So, while I have teens and tweens now, I’ve been writing about frugal living since my kids were little. In fact, I had a few less kids when I started writing around here. It first began as an effort to lower our budget on groceries, diapers, and school supplies. These days, our grocery budget is even higher and the school supplies include things like AP courses and tablets, but at least the diaper years are behind us. Each life stage brings a new budget challenge to our family, and we’re now approaching the college years. We are in the…

    This post on smarter homes and related social media discussions are sponsored by Direct Energy. I’m always looking for ways to improve our home’s efficiency and lower our monthly bills. At first it was about living a greener life. I like the idea of leaving our children’s world a little better than we found it. Then it was about indulging the tween’s (mildly insane) ideas of saving the earth. At this point, I think we cover that pretty well. We recycle everything — yes, even the food, courtesy of her composting plan in kindergarten. I have dozens of reusable…

Reader Raffaella left a question in a comments that beat me to my planned follow-up:While thrifting is very interesting (I only wish we had thrift stores here!) and I agree with your points, I've always wondered if it really is an alternative to the consumeristic mindset. I mean that buying secondhand is still buying, so still a way to fill an emotional void with material things. What do you think? I agree with Raffia.

    Denise
    27 Aug 2014 | 6:57 pm
    Disclosure – Information and a prize pack have been provided by General Mills through Platefull Co-Op, however all thoughts and opinions are my own. I’ll be honest, I really didn’t know what to expect when I was asked to try the new Fiber One Streusel Bars and Chocolate Chip Cookies. I like a nice soft cookie and I kind of thought that with all the extra fiber these might not be as soft, moist and chewy as they turned out to be. I also wasn’t sure if my five kids would even try them, much less like them, but I have been very pleasantly surprised. A couple of the kids…

They’ve recently finished a remodel of this store so I thought I’d give it a try again but I went in with a very short list and an even shorter amount of time to spend but they didn’t have two of the BOGOs on the my list, didn’t even have empty spots where they should have been. I stopped a manager who was very helpful and went to great lengths to make sure I was happy, but I still left sad that they didn’t have the Suave…

  • Bridal Style: How To Make Polaroid Thank You Notes From Instagram On Your Phone with #CanonPIXMA

    26 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    To me, thank you notes are the most important part of any gift-given shindig.  When one is getting married or having a baby, it’s common to get showered with lots of awesome goodies, usually right before a big life change, and while it’s easy to just “phone it in,” when it comes to the thank you note roundup, I’m happy to report there’s a way to do exactly that but still top the list of the “most thoughtful thank you notes EVER.” Technology nowadays, is amazing- and it enables us to be even classier.  I recently got the opportunity to try the…
  • The 8 Things I Don’t Spend Money On

    Shannyn Allan
    25 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
      There are some things I will NOT spend money on, even when I’m not trying to save $20,000 to pay for our wedding.  I’ve been frugal for years as a means of necessity, but old habits stay strong with me.  I find that there are a few things that really pain me to spend money on, so I avoid them if ever possible…. to me, these things are like burning money. Of course, I’ll spend my cash on other things that people deem frivolous- like sending flower to a sick friend (worth the $70 in my book) or buying something if it goes to a good cause (like TOMS shoes or a…

    Life has a funny way of testing you when you say you’ll do “just about anything,” to hit a goal.  As y’all know (because I’ve hit you over the head with it on social), we’re doing a Virtual Pug Run 5k/10k and 1 Miler to raise money for the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue. As my hubby-to-be prepares for his first marathon, to run the Chicago Marathon on October 12th,  he will be dedicating each one of his 26.2 miles to saving the life of one pug and help them with medical care and TLC, find a loving forever home.  To do that, it will cost about $300 per mile, for a total of…
  • Frugal Feature: How to Take Advantage of On-line Lending

    Shannyn Allan
    22 Aug 2014 | 4:48 am
    The internet has really changed the way we live in so many ways from job searching, to shopping, to the access of information and now how we obtain loans. While on-line lending is a fairly new industry, there are a variety of options to choose from. The first are traditional lenders that will work with you on-line and give you loans in a traditional manner. The second group is more interesting where you get loans from regular people. This new type of lending is referred to as peer to peer lending. No matter what you choose, you can find loans from the comfort of your own home and even put in…

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:10 am
    There are few times when a person knows that death is upon them in a specific amount of time. Those that are diagnosed with a terminal disease may begin preparing financially and those that enter the middle age period of their lives see this as important too. Preparing financially for death is a way to help reduce the stress and additional anguish experienced by loved ones after your passing. Pay Down Debt Do your very best to pay down debt. This includes paying off homes, cars and credit accounts. Minimal bills means less financial burden for your family. Everyday bills such as utility bills…
  • Tesla Patents Now Open Source: Will Electric Vehicle Production Take Off?

    Paul
    11 Aug 2014 | 6:10 am
    Back in June, Tesla Motors CEO, Elon Musk, changed the game on electric vehicles. He penned a blog post on their site indicating they will no longer go after people violating their patents. They even took their patents down off their “patent wall” at their corporate headquarters in Palo Alto. This step is unprecedented in the automotive market. It begs the question: Why did Tesla open up their patents to everyone? The answer is actually quite simple. Elon Musk built Tesla Motors to change how people buy and drive cars. He wants to bring electric vehicles to the masses. As a result, he…

  • 5 Ways to Say No

    Ruth Soukup
    29 Aug 2014 | 5:20 am
    Why is it that one of the most common words in the English language is the hardest for many of us say? It’s in the very core of our human nature to want to please people. Saying no is perceived as being negative or mean or unhelpful. We fear we may miss an opportunity. Or – we might burn a bridge. Or – we might make someone upset or angry with us. And who wants that?  So, time and time again we say yes when we really want to say no. Often at the expense of ourselves. We forget that saying yes too many times can make us feel overwhelmed and stressed out.  It can cause us to neglect the…

  • Frugal Ponderings for the Last Bit of Summer Break

    Christina Brown
    27 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    I think one of the hardest things to deal with when you’re frugal is the need to be flexible. It’s a lot easier to shop, manage your busy schedule, and stay organized when you have a detailed plan. This week, I was reminded, as John Lennon once said, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” On Sunday night, I used my food processor to shred a bunch of zucchini from my garden and put four loaves of chocolate chip zucchini bread in my oven. I was feeling pretty good about all that I was getting done.  And then I cut my thumb on the…
  • Are You Being Guilted Into Spending Money?

    Christina Brown
    25 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    There are many emotions that cause us to spend money.  We spend money when we’re happy.  We spend money when we’re sad.   We spend money out of fear.  We spend money without thinking at all. But are you being guilted into spending money? The idea of being guilted into spending money entered my mind as my Facebook feed flooded with folks doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  For those of you who live under a rock and may not know about this, here’s the concept: People dump buckets of ice water on their heads on video, post the video to social media and nominate three…

I made this Angry Birds game for my kids on the cheap with permanent markers I already own and play balls that were on sale for $1.04 each at Fleet Farm and just a bit of time. I thought the larger markers worked better for filling their faces in and drawing thick lines, but I only had brown for the green king pig’s mustache in the thinner markers. If you don’t already own a variety of permanent markers, now is the time to watch the back to school sales and pick some up. I have already seen…

    This is the time of year when a lot of folks are talking about back-to-school shopping. They’re talking about how much money they’re spending. They’re talking about making special road trips to shopping malls with bigger and better stores.  They’re talking about how difficult their kids are about buying clothes.  And worst of all, they’re talking about finally paying off their credit card bills from last year’s back-to-school shopping. My plan is to avoid all of that. You see, my family doesn’t go back-to-school shopping, at least, not in the…

  • Scam “IRS” Phone Calls Continue

    Barbara Nevins Taylor
    28 Aug 2014 | 2:02 pm
    by Barbara Nevins Taylor An alert from the IRS warns that “IRS” scam phone calls continue to plague consumers despite government efforts to track down and arrest the people behind them. The warning is important, but it also means that those of us who get the calls must make sure we don’t fall for threats and demands for our money. Scammers may call anyone. But they frequently target people over 55. Usually, a caller will demand money you owe. Or they may say that the IRS owes you a refund. They want you to wire money or give out your personal information such as bank account…

      by Barbara Nevins Taylor Your auto insurer make take advantage of your loyalty by charging you too much. Newly revealed practices show that many auto insurers overcharge loyal customers and get away with it because we don’t shop around. The Consumer Federation of America (CFA) says insurers play a statistical game that takes advantage of long-time customers’ reluctance to change companies. You may dismiss this and say, “I get a loyalty discount.” That’s true. Customers with good driving records who stay with an insurer generally get a 5 to 10 percent…

      by Barbara Nevins Taylor Few of us want to think about the quality of nursing homes until it’s time to help a parent or relative or maybe use one yourself for rehab. But a recent story in the New York Times (NYT) by Katie Thomas found the Medicare watchdog system doesn’t always work.  That’s why it’s important to take care when you choose a nursing home. I found this out the hard way with my cousin Marilyn. Before she moved into assisted living, she’d call an ambulance every time she had a back ache. Each hospital stay resulted in some kind of infection…
  • Steps to Ensure Contraception Coverage

    Barbara Nevins Taylor

    by Barbara Nevins Taylor The Obama Administration took a bold step to ensure contraception coverage for women under the Affordable Care Act  (ACA) when their non-profit employers won’t provide it because of religious convictions. It’s also trying to deal with the problem created by the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby ruling that allows closely-held private companies to opt out of providing contraceptive coverage. If a religious organization or a non-profit decides it won’t provide contraception coverage because of its religious beliefs, that’s its right according to a…

The squarish hole, stuffed with bits of plasterboard, stares down at us. “It started leaking from the bathroom in the apartment above and my little boy was touching the water. I complained but they said I have to wait.” But bigger problems dwarf the potentially dangerous ceiling leak.
