    If you shop online at all, you probably have quite a stash of cardboard boxes. Besides sending gifts to loved ones far away, they can be used to make some frugal and cool things. Try your hand at a shadow box. You can put in an old fashioned scene, a "Nativity Scene," a mountain covered with snow or let your imagination roam. Use pictures from old Christmas cards, advertisements, catalogs or

  • A handy use for coffee filters

    Frugal Village
    Sara Noel
    9 Dec 2014 | 4:02 pm
    Coffee filters can be used for more than simply brewing coffee. If you’ve recently switched to a reusable filter or are low on paper towels, paper filters can be used for many of the same purposes as paper towels. The first tip shares one alternative use. REUSE COFFEE FILTERS: I use them when putting cut up brownies or cookies, in a plastic container after baking. It makes a great way to keep the layers apart, and it helps grab some of the shortening/oil. — Patti, New York CONVENIENT DRY BEANS: I usually use canned beans since it’s faster to add to gumbo, chili and whatever.

    These days it seems like a simple card or a box of chocolates for our significant other will no longer suffice on Valentine's day. We look at ten ways to show your partner how much you care without emptying your bank account.1. Make a card yourselfThe trouble with Valentine's cards is that they are a bit impersonal. It's a lot to expect that a complete stranger's words or images will somehow magically sum-up your own feelings for your partner.Making a card yourself is far more personal and fun – you can even get the kids involved (if you have them).

    13 Nov 2014 | 11:59 pm
    As part of the Chick-fil-A Mom's Panel, I was challenged to come up with a semi-homemade recipe to dress up Chick-fil-A nuggets.  I am a huge fan of Chick-fil-A nuggets and I love to entertain, so I thought... "Why not come up with a recipe that's easy and perfect for a party?".  Preparing for a party can be very time consuming.  A semi-homemade recipe will save time and can be just as appealing to the palate as homemade recipe. I love the Chick-fil-A's Chicken Deluxe Sandwich with pepper jack cheese, so I came up with "No-Bake Chick-fil-A Nuggets Kabobs".  They are…

  • Let go of sentimental clutter

    Sara Noel
    28 Nov 2014 | 12:45 pm
    Dear Sara: Are you sentimental with material possessions, and do you have a hard time getting rid of them? We had my great aunt and great uncle over for supper this evening, and the topic of being sentimental with “things” came up. My uncle said that as he ages, he’s finding he is more and more sentimental about stuff he was given over the years. He says it’s hard to get rid of things because of the memories the objects are associated with. Personally, when I attempt to rid out, I have such a hard time stuffing things into the bag for Goodwill and letting them go. I…

    Sometimes you buy appliances only to find that you don’t really use them. There are times they might not perform the way you expected, too. It’s great if you’re able to borrow an appliance from friends or family to test out before spending any money. The first reader tip shares another option to avoid buyer’s remorse. Try secondhand first: I’ll often scour garage sales and thrift shops for items that have caught my eye and that I suddenly think I can’t live without but am not sure will serve my needs. I figure if I can pick something up inexpensively to try…

    Ice cube trays are perfect little organizers. They can be used to freeze herbs, coffee/tea and baby food. They stack easily, so use them to organize jewelry, loose change, tacks, paper clips, small screws and bolts or buttons. They’re great to hold different-colored paints for kids or candies, a variety of dips, to grow seeds or as a candy mold. The first tip has one more way to use them. ICE CUBE TRAY USE: Even when I have only just a bit, I like to freeze leftover(s) in ice cube trays then transfer to a Ziploc bag(s). I write down what I put into these bags on a running list on my…

    Identity theft is a heinous crime that victimizes more than 11 million people each year. The crime includes stealing a person’s personal information to open new accounts, misusing existing accounts, and using personal information for alternative malicious purposes.

    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 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…

Credit cards expire (and renew) for a number of good business reasons: Fraud protection.  Stolen or cracked numbers on an expired card are worthless. Re-evaluation of creditworthiness.  Just like car insurance companies only extend insurance for a set period of time, credit card issuers only extend credit for a set period of time.  An expiring card gives them the opportunity to adjust some (but not all) parameters on your…

This year I was selected as a Sprint Ambassador, which means over the course of 10 months I have gotten to play with some really great new phones and accessories!  So far I’ve shared the Sprint HTC One M8 Harman/Kardon edition along with a Harman Kardon Onyx Studio Bluetooth speaker, the water resistant Kyocera Hydro Vibe and the sporty Samsung Galaxy S 5 Sport.

    16 Dec 2014 | 5:22 am
    Getting ready for Christmas means decorating, shopping, baking, wrapping presents, and getting the house ready for those ineveitable (and of course welcome) Christmas guests.  Walmart wanted you to know that they have everything and anything you could need to prepare your home for guests at any time of the year.  Of course there is no better way to show you something than to, well, show you–so they offered the Walmart Moms an opportunity to prep one area of their house for guests using products for Walmart. I knew immediately what room I was going to spruce up–my downstairs…

    I’m having a really hard time shopping for Yankee Bill this year.  I pride myself in coming up with gifts that he will like and use–even if it’s something that he’s never considered asking for.  I’m not sure why, but this year I haven’t been able to come up with something really special.  It doesn’t help that he keeps telling me that he doesn’t really want anything and that I don’t need to buy him anything. Right.  Like that’s going to happen! Instead I’m pikcing up a lot of old standbys–things that are not…

    This year Walmart is featuring the Top 20 toys Chosen by Kids  for Christmas, where they got the opinions of hundreds of kids, ages 18 months to 12 years on what were the hottest and most fun toys out for Christmas.  Walmart used that information to choose the top 20 Chosen by Kids toys for the 2014 Holiday! As a Walmart Mom I have the fun opportunity to try out 5 of the top toys myself and share the experience with you.  So far I’ve played with the Sew Cool Threadless Sewing machine and the Disney Princess Palace Pets Magic Dance Pumpkin.

    Jika kamu berpikir bahwa kelelawar itu menakutkan maka kamu salah.

    Like pumpkin flavor in the Fall, once December rolls around, we like to put peppermint flavoring in to everything! From my Peppermint Oreo Truffles to spiking my water with Peppermint Essential Oil and even making homemade Peppermint Patties, I just can’t get enough of it! So if we are going to make a cheesecake, why not make it peppermint? And use an Oreo crust? And strawberries? And homemade whipped cream (or you can use the store-bought stuff)? And if it wouldn’t ruin the look of it, I probably would have drizzled some chocolate sauce on these! Maybe next time (when I…

    Have you heard about “interest-only loans”? In case you’re wondering if this is a trick question, let me assure you that it isn’t. Banks actually still offer this product. They lend you money to buy a home and you don’t have to repay the principal loan amount – at least for a certain period of time. With an interest-only loan for your home, you are only required to repay the interest.

    Ginger
    15 Dec 2014 | 4:00 am
    If you are selling your home, then you want it to be appraised at the highest possible value so that you can make the biggest profit on the sale. As a financial planner, when clients come to see me for a mortgage approval their primary concern is always about selling their home at the best price in order to find a bigger and better home with the profits. Home buyers always want to buy their home at the lowest price and sellers always want to sell their home at the absolute highest price. If you want to get a high appraisal on your home, then you need to think about your home as an investment.

  • A Guide to Carrier Oils and Butters

    16 Dec 2014 | 9:50 pm
    Carrier oils and butters become something of interest when you want to start making your own beauty products, herb infused oils, and when you want to use essential oils for beauty and for wellness. A carrier oil “carries” the beauty product or essential oil to broad area of the body. Imagine if you will, putting a drop or two of lavender oil on your fingers. How far will those drops of lavender go? How much skin can be covered? The answer is not much. This is why a carrier oil or butter comes in handy. Not only does it dilute more potent ingredients, it also allows you reach…

My family boycotts the kitchen when we run out of a few items. Bananas are one. And split peas are another. I’m glad something so popular is easy to make and freezes well. Unlike other legumes and beans, split peas become creamy when cooked. Bring up the fancy-factor for adults with sliced grape tomatoes, fresh herbs, or, our current favorite, caramelized onions.

  • Naan Pizza with Olives & Feta

    Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom
    17 Dec 2014 | 2:00 pm
    Can we talk for a minute about naan? I kinda love naan. And I don’t cook with it nearly enough. Maybe that’s because it’s like the Thin Mint cookies of bread, or something. Like, I take one bite and I can’t stop eating it. Just like I eat one Thin Mint and next thing I know, the entire sleeve is missing and I’m debating whether or not to run a half marathon to burn off the calories. Or just go sit on the couch and ‘ooze’ mint for a few hours. But naan…it’s so soft and smooth and delicious. And so soft. Oooh, it’s so soft and just…

    How many of you are expecting guests in the coming weeks?  Have you been cleaning and sprucing up in anticipation of their arrival? When I know someone is coming to stay with my family I want them to have a great experience. I know I love the little extras when we go to stay somewhere else. I want my family and friends to have a “luxury hotel” experience in my home, it how I say I love you. Here’s how I make that happen: When guests come to stay at our house they stay upstairs in our mother in law suite that also doubles as our home school room. First things first, we make…

    This week my kiddos and I had fun baking and boxing cookies for some special friends. We took one afternoon to bake chocolate chip pecan, oatmeal scotchies, palmiers, blue velvet {I used this recipe but substituted blue}, sugar cookies, and fudgy brownie cookies. All of these cookies are simple enough that we made and baked them all in one afternoon/evening with a single oven.  The next day we decorated the sugar cookies with homemade buttercream icing {you could use royal icing but I like the taste of buttercream better!} and lots of sprinkles and edible decorations. The trick to getting…

    ‘Tis the season for baking! I hate cold weather. The only thing redeeming about winter is that I can crank up my oven and make lots of delicious desserts and breads and not worry about heating the house up. In fact I WANT it to heat the house up!  And, besides that, itvfills the house with delicious smells. The first thing to come out of my oven this winter has been cookies! The kids and I been baking up lots of new varieties and old favorites to share in our cookie boxes that we’ve been delivering to friends. One of our favorites, by far, have been these Fudgy Brownie cookies…

I downloaded the program, entered all of my personal information, including the free ride coupon, all in 10 minutes or less. I then got an approximation of how long until the ride shows up. Surprisingly, they arrived on time and the driver was super friendly. The fare was only $4 after I used this awesome Lyft promo code, which is truly a lot less than when I have taken a taxi to get around. The motorist was cool, so I jumped into the front passenger seat like we had been best friends…

    17 Dec 2014 | 5:39 am
    The average cost of raising a baby during the first year is $10,000 to $15,000, which totals more than $245,000 to age 18.

     Another fortnight with lots of lunches out – and everything at home seems to have been salads or sandwiches. Not really a lot of variety among the ingredients either – same old cabbage/apple/carrot/beetroot coleslaw or spinach/tomato/radish/cucumber pickles salad. Still at least none of it costs anything Free lunch – 2 weeks to 23rd november

    It’s the time of year for putting up the decorations but for a while the Christmas ones must wait. I have a string of chillies drying over the dining room radiator – and they cannot be disturbed! It’s one of the easiest ways to preserve them. When they’re dried, I’ll pack them in jars and they keep for years! Decorating with chillies

  • My Vegan Son Cooks Vanilla-Scented Orange Soup

    Hannah Katsman
    7 Dec 2014 | 11:43 am
    My son became a vegan just a few weeks ago. After graduating high school last spring, he decided to spend the year volunteering in a town with a low socio-economic population. He and the other teens in his program volunteer during the day, and cook together in the evening. My son helps weak students in a high school in the morning, and works with immigrant children in the afternoon. Four of his fellow volunteers are vegetarian, and one is a vegan. According to my son, she is the best cook in their group. After attending a festival for vegans, my son decided to become a vegan too. Two…

    With a round of Jewish holidays coming up, a lot of readers may be expecting a crowd. Smadar Saltun interviewed two caterers, Ronit Bronfman of Mazal Taleh and Anat van der Walt of Sodexo, about how to entertain a large number of people while still enjoying yourself. 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…

    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…

I downloaded the program, entered all of my personal information, including the free ride coupon, all in 10 minutes or less. I then got an approximation of how long until the ride shows up. Surprisingly, they arrived on time and the driver was super friendly. The fare was only $4 after I used this awesome Lyft promo code, which is truly a lot less than when I have taken a taxi to get around. The motorist was cool, so I jumped into the front passenger seat like we had been best friends…

    Oh Lush, it beguiles with its striking minimalist branding, bright products, and all-natural aspirations. When we didn't have a Lush in Jacksonville, Florida I explored the Orlando, Florida Lush two miles South with wonder, beguiled by the textures and scents, enchanted. Lush's "bath bombs" are a fan favorite. They explode like a science fair volcano in your tub, turning it into a vat of colorful, fragrant, fizzy goodness. What's not to love? Well, their ingredients list. Not even close to 100% natural. When I see "Fragrance" on a label I twitch, this vague title could be a combination of…

    When the weather outside is frightful it's comforting to look back at tropical scenes, sip tea, and conjure exotic thoughts. Let's warm up with photos I took during my only extended walk in my grandparent's neighborhood in Ponce, Puerto Rico. It's gentrified since I saw policia trashing gang member's bicycles when I was seven, but my grandparents were still worried about my safety when I visited six months ago. The general area houses squatting drug dealers and is conductive to crime, but it was so nice to see formerly derelict homes renovated and loved. You can tell the current…

I love raw vegan deserts because they're always equally as good if not better than the conventional counterparts. The real fruits, oils, and sweeteners make it just as satisfying as the real deal- but they're chock full of nutrition vs. consisting of empty calories.

Since that time I’ve been passionate about digital photographs and now that…

    Brought to you by Bordeaux Wines Although white wine is often considered a spring or summer drink, there’s no reason why you can’t stretch the white wine season all year long. While Bordeaux’s red wines are its most popular, white Bordeaux wines are making a huge comeback thanks to their fresh, crisp style, vibrant fruit flavors, accessibility, and affordability. Here’s what you need to know about selecting white Bordeaux for the winter months. Crisp & Fruity Like their red counterparts, white Bordeaux wines are usually a blend of different grapes.

    18 Dec 2014 | 4:41 am
    We love a good discount on anything you can find to upgrade and remodel you home, including cabinets in the kitchens and bath. While you can absolutely find discount cabinets that look upscale and quality, you should still focus on the finishes you use throughout the rest of the room in which you put less expensive cabinets. If you choose to go cheap with your finishes, you risk making your cabinets appear cheap and lacking quality, which is not what you want. Even with discount pricing, cabinets are still expensive, and you don’t want to make them look as if they are not by making silly…
  • 70s Fashion is Back and Better than Ever

    18 Dec 2014 | 4:40 am
    If fashion week can teach us anything, it’s that some of us (most of us) have zero creative eye for the things we see walking down the runway and that it takes reporters and other fashionistas to tell us exactly what we are seeing as it comes down the runway. This year, the major trend at just about every fashion week across the world was the 70s. It appears that designers are growing tired of the 80s and 90s fashion trends that recently swept the nation – thank goodness. Now it’s all about 70s fashion and all that it entails. Some of us were born just after the 70s ended, so we don’t…

Unfortunately, too many people make it a habit to spend money they don’t have or can’t afford on their weddings simply because they want it to look good in photos or in the eyes of their guests. We don’t have to tell you it’s a bad idea to overspend on the wedding, but we can tell you that there is one surefire way you can save money on your reception and that’s making some gorgeous DIY wedding centerpieces.

    It’s always a bit of an annoyance when you walk into a furniture store to make a purchase and the salespeople hound you incessantly to apply for a credit card. Why do they care so much whether or not you apply for a card as long as you have the cash to pay for your purchase? While it doesn’t really matter why they care so much, it should matter why you care not to apply. Sure, the application process is going to drop your credit score a few points. No, you don’t want another credit card. You can afford your new furniture, so why apply? The answer is not that simple; but the savings are…

    Paul
    17 Dec 2014 | 7:36 pm
    Cash flow in business is a simple concept, but it is much easier said than done. The basic concept of cash flow is that there is always enough money coming into your business to keep operations moving. If you ever have more money going out than coming in, your cash flow is insufficient, and your business may even be in jeopardy. These two sides of cash flow are called accounts receivable and accounts payable, and the business owner has to keep careful track of how both are performing. Our infographic, pictured below, has a lot more detail. Consider small business loans from Citizens Bank Here…

  • Light Up Your Loo: Bathroom Lighting to Get Happy About

    Paul
    3 Dec 2014 | 4:39 pm
    Let’s face it. Bathrooms are probably the most unloved and under respected rooms in the house, yet we all use them, usually several times a day. In fact, we’ll often bang on the door just for the chance to get access. Why, then, do we not treat these rooms like the stars they are? Many people decorate their bathrooms, and do quite a good job of it. However, candles, decorative towels, and a framed photo of flowers don’t often do the lowly loo very much justice. It can be difficult to adequately design and decorate a room that isn’t used in the same manner as a living room or a…

    Despite supposedly widespread economic growth, many consumers are continuing to struggle with dwindling savings and low levels of disposable income. While some may attribute this partially to irresponsible spending, the fact remains that the average national wage continues to stagnate while the rate of inflation and the cost of living continue to soar. So rather than struggling to save with minimal income, we’re arguing that today’s breed of citizens and consumers would be better served by creating additional streams of revenueand harvesting this into a long-term savings plan.  …

Here are twelve eco friendly holiday tips to help you reduce your environmental footprint this holiday season.  1.

There are many factors that go into the cost including time of year, lodging, tickets, and food expenses. Let's take a look at what it might cost for a family of four consisting of two adults and two children.

  • How Much Does a Keg of Beer and Kegerator Cost?

    Are you planning a big party where adult beverages will be served? It might make more sense to get a keg instead of cases of beer. A keg, as many of us remember from college, is a 16 gallon barrel used to store, transport, and serve beer. If you are a beer connoisseur, there might be an advantage to purchasing a Kegerator, where you will keep kegs of your favorite beer fresh for up to a month while enjoying the refreshing taste of a draft beer. You will get more for your money while being eco-friendly as you avoid an overflowing recycle bin. Type of Beer Obviously, the type of beer will…
  • How Much Does Weekly Salary Cap Fantasy Football Cost?

I remember my dad playing fantasy football in the late 80s with friends from work, which required somebody keeping track of all the stats in a notebook!

Traditionally, fantasy football involves a group of people getting together to draft their teams before the season starts. Each participant pays a fee, and the various awards are determined at the end of the season which is usually the week before the end of…

    For those of you that worship everything Apple, the announcement of the Apple watch probably has you pretty excited. You already have an iMac, iPod, iPhone, and iPad, and now there's a new device to complete your set. The Apple Watch is the next generation of the wristwatch which will come with apps just like your other devices. I remember desperately wanting a calculator watch in grade school. Thankfully, my parents didn't get me one for Christmas that year, because those never really took off. These probably will. Many people already use their phone as their main source to check the time,…
  • How Much Does a Promoted Tweet Cost?

    13 Sep 2014 | 3:22 pm
    Social media has become the name of the game in marketing. You may have read my article about how much it costs to boost a post on Facebook, but what about Twitter? Promoted tweets can be very helpful in reaching a new audience and increasing your revenue, and it will often pay itself back which is the point of advertising in the first place. Twitter is saturated with everyone from Barack Obama to your weird next-door neighbor spouting off their thoughts, photos, jokes, and spam. Promoted tweets will show up at the top of users feed, so they actually might see it rather than scrolling by and…
