    Dear Sara: I need a paper towel replacement. I’ve used coupons and taken advantage of sales, but paper towels are still too expensive. I’d like to replace them with a really absorbent cloth. (Back when I could buy new dishtowels, I hated how nonabsorbent they were until they were “broken in.”) I guess I would buy a covered diaper pail or some such thing to throw them in until washing. Can you point me in the right direction? — Mary, Michigan Dear Mary: You’ll have to figure out what you like to use. I place a stack of cheap washcloths on the kitchen…

    On a daily basis I try to stay on top of keeping things picked up and floor and counters clean, which keeps it from feeling chaotic, but I needed to develop some kind of schedule to do some special cleaning projects and deep clean some rooms even further than a daily clean. After a summer of the kids home, things really started to get neglected, so I made up this checklist out of necessity. Click on the list to download and print it as a PDF. I needed to re-claim my house. I started by just getting back to a working foundation by making my home look more like a home than a storage facility. I…

    The following is a post from Sam Peters, with lots of (purple!) commentary from yours truly.  If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I’m a big fan of credit cards.  We only use cash to pay the local farmer who sells us eggs, and for the occasional garage sale.  Everything else – thrift stores, grocery stores, gas, phone bill, Netflix… all goes on credit cards.  We have a few different cards we use, because different cards give different rewards based on what you’re buying.  But no matter what, they all get paid off in full every month. Although we love the…

    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…

    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…

    Dear Sara: About a year ago we remodeled our kitchen and put in a black ground-granite sink. All the cleaners I have used leave a white film on it. Any suggestions? — Jean, email Dear Jean: Use a microfiber cloth and warm water or Dawn dishwashing liquid mixed with warm water on a sponge or dishcloth. Rinse the cloth with water, wring it out and wipe the sink. Then dry with a soft cotton/flannel cloth. Don’t use excessive soap or you’ll get buildup. Wipe up spills as soon as possible, too.

  • Banking on it: How to avoid bankruptcy in your near future

    frugalblogger
    24 Sep 2014 | 7:50 pm
    When you hear the word “bankruptcy,” most of the time your thoughts turn to large scale companies or retailers that have no choice but to shut the doors and declare to fight (or re open) another day. But what about bankruptcy as it pertains to an individual, couple or family as far as your financial planning and freedom or lack thereof. Avoiding bankruptcy is unquestionably paramount, but when that word starts to surface in the household, chances are you’ve missed the warning signs and it’s too late to turn back from a road you ultimately didn’t want to travel.

    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…

Consumers lose more than $500 million each year because of such activities. Credit or debit card fraud is an unfortunate incident that involves the use of your information by an unauthorized person. Such can occur because of online hackers, bogus offers, dishonest restaurant employees, or intricate skimming devices.

    Frugality, by definition, deals with the economical uses of resources.  This includes not only money, but also time, and anything else that can be consumed or used. Closely related to being careful with how we use our time, we also need to be careful with how we use our attention.  We have evermore bright-and-shinys competing for our eyeballs and our process cycles, and we’re expected by society to keep on top of things.  One task, one project, one relationship blurs into another, and we get to make sense out of the blur.

    With just about anything, the more you do it, the better you get at it.  Consistent, deliberate practice has a way of wringing out inefficiencies and avoiding landmines. However, for some activities, there just isn’t the opportunity for most people to practice.  Or, the activities are once- or twice-in-a-lifetime events. Businesses that cater to these kinds of infrequent events capitalize on the inexperience of the buyers.  I hesitate from saying that these businesses “take advantage of” their customers or “rip them off,” because I don’t really blame…

    1 Oct 2014 | 11:26 am
    Apple Cider Donuts Recipe One thing that I love about Fall is visiting the apple orchard or the pumpkin patch with my children. They are starting to think that they are too old for it these days, but we have always loved going on a hayride, the corn mazes and even to the pumpkin patch to pick our own pumpkins. Every time we go, we always end our trip the same way….with a steaming cup of hot apple cider or hot chocolate and some apple cider donuts. It’s usually fairly chilly when we make this family outing, so this is the perfect way to warm up before getting in the car and heading…

  • 4 Ways To Avoid Buying A Lemon While Saving Your Sanity

    Ginger
    29 Sep 2014 | 5:40 am
    The problem with most states’ lemon laws is that people who find out they are stuck with a lemon realize it after the time limit prescribed by law has passed. They end up dumping the car in the used car market. I don’t mean to rain on your parade but the way most states have configured their anti-lemon laws, such laws only truly protect new car buyers. If you are a used car buyer and you don’t want to be saddled with a lemon, keep the following tips in mind. Here are the five ways to avoid buying a lemon: Tip #1: Do research on car makes and models that normally get put on…

    If you have rent due tomorrow or you need to pay somebody by tomorrow, it is too easy to think that the only way to get out of the financial pickle you’re in is to take out a loan. I don’t blame you. Most people think this way because it definitely takes care of the problem. Sadly, it is too easy to take out a payday loan or some other high interest loan. Even if you have friends who are more than willing, ready, and able to give you a loan, your friendship might not survive the collection process. If you want to make quick money free and clear of any interest or possible stress…
  • Falling In Love With Your Money One Transaction At A Time

    Ginger
    23 Sep 2014 | 6:03 am
    Usually, when it comes to personal finance issues, the words ‘saving’ and ‘fun’ or ‘love’ aren’t mentioned in the same sentence. In many cases, they are spaced very far apart. There’s a good reason for this: most people consider saving a chore. We tend to think saving money involves denying ourselves all the good stuff life has to offer – whether we can afford  it or not.   So we may feel cheated or ‘denied’ when we can’t spend whatever we want or spend whenever we want. Well, as you probably already can see, this kind…

If you have ever opened a bank or credit card statement only to be shocked at a fee you don’t recognize, here are the steps you need to follow. Keep in mind that these techniques don’t always work. There are some fees and penalties that can’t be waived-regardless of customer service implications. The good news is that in many cases, your bank or credit card company would…

    Earth Policy Institute

    By Janet Larsen With the signing of a plastic bag ban in California on September 30, 2014, the number of Americans who will be affected by anti-bag legislation by 2015 climbed to 49 million. California is the first state to ban the bag. Nationwide more than 150 cities and counties are implementing bans or fees in attempts to reduce the estimated 100 billion plastic bags used in the United States each year. Americans use on average nearly one plastic bag each day, taking something made from fossil fuels formed over millions of years and generally using it for mere minutes before throwing it…

  • The Pizza Box Project: How to Handle the Second-Largest Waste Stream on Campus

    Jeff McIntire-Strasburg
    29 Sep 2014 | 9:21 am
    Back when I was in college in the 80s, we had a “green” way of dealing with aluminum can waste (which I assume was and is item most disposed of on campus): we noticed our custodian collected them for recycling, so we set up a box for him – no digging through the trash in our cube! When it came to what I assume is the second-most disposed of item – the cardboard pizza box – we simply threw it away. Even if we’d had a recycling system on campus, the pizza box would’ve still gone in the trash because of the grease that seeps into the cardboard and…

I mean, why would you threaten people with a fine for not separating out their food scraps from their other trash? Why would you require a business to compost? That’s just trying to control people, plain and simple… right? That’s the kind of response I’d expect from some people to mandatory composting plans in places like Massachusetts and Seattle. A recent post from Eat.Drink.Better, however, gives us several good reasons for requiring…

    As we’ve seen in many cases, what happens to your old computer, or used cell phone, or other electronics you hand over to a recycler is just what you expect: it gets torn down for useful parts and components, or refurbished into a new version of the same product. But, unfortunately, there’s still about a quarter of American electronic waste that gets shipped overseas, where very poor people pick through it – without any kind of safety equipment, protective clothing, and the like – for materials that they can sell in exchange for the most basic needs.

    Kids love to get their hands messy and play with good ole fashioned play dough. The stuff in the stores though could have any number of unsavory ingredients. The truth is we don’t know because the major players in the industry refuse to disclose ingredients, claiming that it is proprietary. The uber bright colors are enough to make me worry though because there are lots of toxic nasties in dyes. The powers that be claim are they “perfectly safe”.

    16 Sep 2014 | 11:00 pm
    I am a big advocate for cosleeping. I shared a bed with all three of my kiddos and I found the benefits for both mom and baby to be without measure. This is especially so with infants and babies who are still breastfeeding but the benefits easily extend to toddlers as well. It makes for healthier and more attached and secure children. And another big bonus: It’s free! No need for a pricey crib which might just be recalled a year or two down the line anyway.

Two, I live in the land of ridiculously cheap corn and flour tortillas…where the grocery stores have in-store tortilla making presses.

  • Fall Fruit & Nut Honey Compote for Your Yogurt Breakfast

    26 Sep 2014 | 11:48 am
    Yogurt is a great anytime food…around here we can be found eating it at breakfast, lunch, and for a snack. But, yogurt can also be used in recipes anytime of day.  I’ve got a great little easy substitution guide for you and also a UBER easy recipe for how to enjoy yogurt in these colder months ahead. Did you know you could use yogurt in place of mayo, butter, sour cream, even oil? Yep. It can be done. However, yogurt tends to “break” like sour cream or heavy cream, so take care that you don’t overheat it. It is best stirred in at the end of recipes. Here’s…

  • Reynold Parchment Paper Sheets – a Busy Bakers Dream Come True

    Denisesawyer
    24 Sep 2014 | 3:23 pm
    Do you use Reynold’s Parchment Paper for baking? I have used parchment paper for LOTS of things: cookies, baking cakes, roasting veggies, baking fish – lots of things to keep the mess off the pan! It also provides a non-stick surface so that I don’t have to worry about losing half of that yummy fish! Over the years, I’ve purchased those big ol’ rolls and cut them to the correct size, fighting that paper to make it fit my baking sheet. Well, those days are over!! I know it may be a little weird to get so excited about pre-cut parchment paper, but I am beyond…

    This great deal on marker board/chalk board decals is back!

See, my mom has worked for an insurance agency for as long as I can remember, and she is good about rechecking every single company she writes for every six months to find me the best rate for car insurance. Well, now that all four of my kids can drive (gasp), I have five cars to insure (theirs plus my new car). When she told me my premium would now be $3154 for six months, I seriously cried (I was having a bad day…

  • August #AudioFest at @BestBuy: Samsung Wireless HUB & Speaker Review

    28 Aug 2014 | 6:13 pm
    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…

    Are you spending too much money on gas? Via Shutterstock. Fall is a great time of year for road trips, especially when you live in Rhode Island. Whether my friends and I are headed to Vermont for some skiing and pumpkin festivals or driving to Florida to get some much needed sun, we’re racking up the miles and our gas bills. While we carpool, the gas bill can still be hefty so I’ve been looking for ways to save on gas. 10 Tips to Save on Gas 1) Grocery Shopping Rewards – I recently signed up for my own rewards card at my local grocery store and was surprised at how quickly…

  • Tired pineapple? Turn it into pineapple chutney!

    Miss Thrifty
    29 Sep 2014 | 4:20 pm
    I picked up a pineapple in the supermarket discount aisle, took it back to my kitchen and didn’t do anything with it. The leaves on the top began to turn brown and a couple of fruit flies were sniffing around. Food waste? I think not. PINEAPPLE ACTION STATIONS. My pineapple chutney recipe is great for using up a dusty old fruit. It’s an Nigella recipe from ages ago, which I have given a frugal, slow cooker makeover. Chutney is perfect for the slow cooker: pile in the ingredients and leave the slow cooker on a low setting overnight. The fruit is soft anyway; as it becomes hot and sticky,…

    Fivers? Fives, I mean. You’ll have to excuse me: I’ve got money on the brain, sitting here on the train having just forked out for my crazy-ass expensive monthly season ticket. Anyway, in this little corner of the internet I am beginning to wonder if we are on the brink of something special.

    Ooooh, hello Kevin, with your wise twinkling eyes and that pained expression you sport when a uPVC window is spotted in the middle distance. I used to watch your Grand Designs programme slavishly, until I actually bought a house and realised that I could barely cope with the stress of replacing a chimney flue, let alone convert a derelict chapel or build an eco-house from scratch in the middle of the forest. If you are a fan of Kevin McCloud and Grand Designs, would you like free tickets to Grand Designs Live: the giant exhibition show based on the popular Channel 4 series? It is the ninth…
  • Peach iced tea in five minutes

    Miss Thrifty
    2 Sep 2014 | 3:49 pm
    Quick! One last swing at summer, if this week’s weather forecasts are anything to go by. This summer I have been addicted to peach iced tea. I was going to post the recipe a couple of weeks ago, but the August sky had turned black and the drizzle had been falling for days and… well, a thrifty hot toddy would have been more appropriate. If you don’t like Pimm’s or don’t buy it because it is too expensive (right now the cheapest Pimm’s deal is £12 for 70cl from Tesco), then this peach iced tea recipe may be for you. I actually prefer peach iced tea to Pimm’s: chilled…

    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…

  • Six Secrets to Shopping at Thrift Shops!

    24 Sep 2014 | 9:17 am
    I've always been a frugal shopper. My mom taught me to shop the clearance rack and to combine coupons with sales. But there was one thing my mom wasn't into - and that's thrift stores. I think it skeeved her out. So when I was old enough to drive, my friends and I would go to Salvie (The Salvation Army) and other stores. I would get all sorts of treasures but it was more of a once in a while type thing. Over the past two years I have really gotten into thrift store shopping. My favorite is Goodwill - their prices are the best and my store has some of the greatest stuff! Here are some of…

  • Review: Run Free With The FlipBelt!

    17 Sep 2014 | 4:55 pm
    One of my biggest complaints about running outside is not being able to carry things with me. I've tried arm bands, putting my phone in a pocket, and just holding it in my hand. All of those are not great options. I have never found a comfortable arm band - and the other options just aren't really practical. So I was really excited when I heard about the FlipBelt!The FlipBelt is a stretchy belt made of quick drying fabric. You step into it and pull it over your hips. It fits snugly to your body so it moves with you. I can fit all of my essentials: a key, id, phone/mp3 player and Mace. I don't…

    Once you make renovations to your kitchen (or just a clean up) you want to protect the work that you did. This is why for our new kitchen cupboards, Gerry added the  Duck brand peel and stick laminate, (choosing the Pearl Marble design), to the drawers and the cupboards.The printed grid backing made it super easy for cutting and measuring. It will also protect the inside of the cupboard bottoms and drawers from scratches or moisture damage, which was really important to me. Plus it comes in so many colors and patterns that you can have your kitchen…

  • 10 Ways to Repurpose a Bridesmaid Dress

    30 Sep 2014 | 10:11 am
    All brides announce, "You'll be able to wear it again." No matter how wearable the bride may think it is, most traditional bridesmaid dresses are left to hang forlorn in the back of the closet. Bridesmaid dresses are hardly cheap, so repurposing them can take some sting out of the price tag. #200370622-001 / gettyimages.com 1. Alter. The style might not be your cup of tea, but a shorter hem, a reshaped neckline, adding straps, or even chopping the ensemble in half can transform an old bridesmaid dress into something you would actually wear to a cocktail party or another wedding.

Van der Walt points out that when cooking for 15-30 as opposed to 3-4, the differences are not only in scale. You have to make sure that you have enough space and equipment to cook, store and heat up your meal, because you don’t want to spend time fussing in the kitchen. Everything should be ready in advance. Here are…
  • How to Cook for a Family with a New Baby

    Hannah Katsman
    15 Jun 2014 | 2:00 am
    This post was first published in 2011. I’ve updated it with more ideas shared by readers. A friend of mine gave birth recently, and a few families in the community made meals for her. While it’s possible to order out nowadays, home-cooked meals are often tastier and more nutritious. Providing meals shows the family that they are cared for, and it’s a wonderful way to welcome the baby to the neighborhood. I’ll never forget the friend that called me up every week. starting in my last month of a difficult pregnancy, asking what she could cook for Sabbath dinner.
  • Sourdough Oatmeal Walnut Bread

    Hannah Katsman
    12 Jun 2014 | 7:49 am
    The first sourdough bread I made was from  Miriam Kresh’s recipe at Israeli Kitchen. Since then I’ve made it numerous times, especially when I am hosting a meeting or party. I’ve recently made some healthy adjustments including cutting out sugar and substituting olive oil. I often add nuts, and substitute spelt for some of the wheat flour. When this recipe comes out right it tastes like cake, but with a tasty and satisfying crust. If you’ve never worked with sourdough, now is a good time to start!  The sourdough starter requires only takes flour and water. Once…
  • Recipe: Unstuffed Rutabagas or Turnips

    25 May 2014 | 2:48 am
    Courtesy of Kristen Taylor via Flickr Thanks to US reader Tanya who sent me this original recipe back in February, writing: I hope spring has come to Israel. Here we are still buried under a foot of snow and the ground is frozen hard. Rutabagas are still quietly sitting in the basement, nice and firm and ready to sustain us for however long it take for the ground to thaw and first spring greens to sprout! Seemed like as good a time as any to send you the rutabaga recipe. It would also be good with turnips. With luck you can still find some rutabagas or turnips for this delicious and healthy…
  • Less Is More: Review of Magimix 5200XL Food Processor

    Hannah Katsman
    21 May 2014 | 11:19 am
    Magimix 5200XL A few months ago, the metal chopping blade for my Magimix 5100 food processor overheated and melted for the second time. The first time, I salvaged the machine. Since I was generally happy with the machine, already my second, and the others on the market did not appear to be higher quality, I decided to get the Magimix 5200XL. Since then I’ve had opportunity to experiment with nearly all of the features. Some work beautifully, but others disappoint. Magimix 5200XL Parts and Accessories First, I’ll give a run-down of the many, many parts of the Magimix 5200XL. Three…

    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…

Today I bought $76.16 worth of groceries for $36.86, or 52% off after coupons and $5/$30 Winn Dixie q. Here are the deals: Publix Hickory Smoked Bacon,…

    One of the best books I have read about planning a wedding has been Bridal Bargains- it was a no nonsense guide to planning a wedding and navigating the waters of vendors and services that seem like they’re out to bleed you dry. In their chapter about dress shopping, they mentioned online vendors to buy your wedding gown direct from China and had a no B.S. guide to getting your wedding dress direct. Dressilyme.com was one website they recommended, so I started to do my due diligence and went online to research wedding dresses direct from China, as opposed to going to a bridal chain…

    One of the biggest regrets I have from starting my blog back in the day was that I didn’t hire help earlier. I attempted to build WordPress themes by myself. I attempted to code things by myself. I did taxes by myself. I even tried to do complex graphics and logo redesigns by myself.  I constantly functioned in a state of overwhelm trying to do every last thing myself, not realizing that it would have saved me stress and probably been highly more efficient to hire someone else to professionally do those tasks.  At the time, I was broke- I couldn’t afford $300 for an accountant.

    I was watching the first round of the Ryder Cup and was struck by how different the format is from the regular PGA Tour.  The PGA Tour is all about the individual, you are playing for yourself and yourself alone. The Ryder Cup is all about the team, country and your playing partner. The last thing these guys want to do is let their team down.   The pressure to perform for your team is palpable and an amazing spectacle to watch.

After filling out the FAFSA and being accepted into a school, you will be presented with an award letter from your chosen school(s) with details around the different types of federal, state, and university-specific aid you are awarded.

    Eating well on the cheap? The rice and beans brigade will tell you that asceticism is the only way to go but all budget and no bounty makes for a pretty boring life. Now it’s understandable that after buying groceries for breakfast, lunch, dinner and let’s not forget the snacks, there’s not much left over for dessert – even when dessert is fresh fruit.  Luckily there’s canned fruit to the rescue. When your family favorites aren’t in season you can grab last season’s bounty from a supermarket shelf and turn it into a gorgeous after-dinner treat that kids…

    According to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), there are around 5.3 million people of working age in the UK claiming benefits of some kind, and although many people think benefits are only available to those who don’t work, this is not true – some benefits are related to your age or personal circumstances rather than your employment status. With many benefits being replaced by the Universal Credit before 2017, it’s a good time to work out what you’re entitled to. Organizations including the Money Advice Service can really help you get to grips with the new system and how it…

    A Power of Attorney is a document that allows you (the principal) to appoint someone (the agent) to act on your behalf.There are many reasons why you might want to appoint someone else to look after your financial affairs. For example, if you own a property in a different state you can give power to your agent to sell your property for you. You can also plan ahead and appoint an agent to take care of your finances if you are ever hospitalized for long periods of time. A Power of Attorney is important to have and is simple to create.

  • Investors Lead Housing Loan Jump

    Lisa Weber
    23 Sep 2014 | 7:00 pm
    According to the latest figures from the Australia Bureau of Statistics, July saw a 2.7-percent increase in new home loans in the country. Sounds encouraging, right? At first glance, it is. Digging more deeply into the numbers, however, reveals that massive amounts of that activity can be traced back to investors. Indeed, nearly half of all new loans written in July went to property investors while there was no real change in the rate of owner-occupied housing loans. What is it about the current real estate market in Australia that’s attracting so much activity from investors? Not…

    Sometimes we “keep” things (I refuse to say hoard) because even though they have grown less popular, or aren’t considered High Fashion, they WORK, and that’s why we’re OK with being ridiculed for keeping them. I had filed this post away as a draft for a future date, when I read a post by Shell, on her blog Things I Can’t Say, called In Defense of Yoga Pants.

    Regardless of age, people have varying levels of understanding when it comes to investing their money. Some learn about investing their money through information received at work when they sign up for their company-sponsored 401k or retirement plan. Others may seek out the advice of friends or family members. However this knowledge base is built, some people still wonder if investing their money is a good idea – especially in a challenged economy.

    The idea of better pay for hard work became a reality for thousands of  New Yorkers with the flick of pen.  Mayor Bill de Blasio stood in St. Mary’s Park in the South Bronx, surrounded by politicians, and signed an executive order that expands the living wage to employees of  commercial tenants on projects that get economic development subsidies of $1 million dollars or more. The order includes retailers and other companies that lease space in subsidized developments. Workers who do not get benefits, like health insurance, will see their pay rise from $10.10 an hour to $13.13.
