  • Slow Cooker Sweet Potato & Chickpea Curry

    $5 Dinners
    Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom
    15 Sep 2014 | 2:00 pm
    This right there y’all…is what you call a delicious, hearty, filling vegetarian dish that even meat lovers will love! I prepped this in the slow cooker because I wanted the chickpeas and the sweet potatoes to soak for a long time in the curried broth. And boy, oh boy…my tastebuds are grateful that I slow cooked this one. The chickpeas and sweet potatoes take on the curry and ginger flavors and it’s downright delicious! Another thing that I love about this is that the base of it is dried chickpeas…which are ridiculously inexpensive! Please don’t pass up the…

    As you all probably know by now, I am pretty much hooked on easy recipes that taste great and don’t take a lot of time, effort, or expensive ingredients to throw together.  As a busy mom, I also want meals that can be made and frozen ahead of time to save time on hectic weeknights, especially as part of a Sunday Prep plan.  My goal is to spend less time in the kitchen, not more, but I still want to be able to provide tasty meals that my family loves!

    Every consumer needs a safe place that he or she can store money for future use. Consumers have several options that include opening bank accounts or credit union accounts. Finding an account that is “easy on the balance” is the best way to get the most out of a banking institution. The following are miscellaneous fees that a person should review and try to avoid when choosing a banking establishment: Monthly Maintenance Fees Monthly maintenance fees are random fees that banks charge their customers for the mere “luxury” of having an account.

    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…

  • Our yard and garden – five year update

    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…

    Coffee cans are great storage containers. They have a tight-fitting lid, come in different sizes, are portable, and some even have a wide-grip handle. Their durability makes them a smarter choice than glass jars for many storage solutions.

  • Remove stains from baby clothes

    Sara Noel

    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.

    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…

    No matter how safe you think you might be with your debit or credit card, you are still susceptible to credit card fraud. 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. You should check the balance of your cards every day as an extra security measure. The following contains some tips for handling fraud if it does come your…

    John Wedding
    13 Sep 2014 | 9:43 pm
    There is no shortage of personal finance advice available. I’ve been known to produce a bit myself here and there. There are recurring themes like “buy vs. rent,” “spend less than you earn,” “the magic of compounding,” and so forth which are the cornerstones of personal finance, saving, and retirement planning. They’re cornerstones because there’s a lot of wisdom behind them. Checklists and more checklists I ran across Richmond Savers today, which is run by a couple of CPAs in my part of the country.  The community is local to…

    John Wedding
    9 Sep 2014 | 12:33 am
    Economies of scale are a wonderful thing.  The more you’re willing to buy from a particular vendor, the better the unit price they’re inclined to give you.  Selling a thousand items a hundred times is a lot more work than selling fifty thousand items twice.  It’s less bookkeeping, less tracking, less shipping, and less labor to sell bigger chunks of your inventory at once. Likewise, businesses buy the materials for their operations in bulk all the time.  It’s part of being competitive, and profitable.  Lower expenses mean that businesses can price more…
  • Frugal, or cheap, or tacky?

    Saving money, and spending less money, are two crucial activities for people looking to take, and maintain, control of their personal finances. And, as with most things, there are classy ways to go about it, and … less classy ways. On the spectrum of ways to spend less money openly, one can be (in order of decreasing classiness) frugal, cheap, or tacky. Merriam-Webster defines each in context: frugal – Characterized by or reflecting economy in the use of resources. cheap – Stingy; sparing or scant in using, giving, or spending. tacky – Characterized by lack of good…
  • Use money analogies to gain context

    John Wedding
    2 Sep 2014 | 8:59 pm
    Personal finance boils down to recognizing, and acting on, good deals in their proper context. What’s a wise finance decision for one person could easily be a foolish decision for another. In deciding whether something is a good deal, it’s often useful to quantify its cost in terms of something familiar.  While raw amounts like “$500″ do indeed quantify the cost, $500 could mean wildly different things to different people: $500 to the average laborer in Indonesia is nearly a year’s salary. $500 is a bit over two weeks’ pay to someone at the federal poverty…

    I am always on the hunt for new crockpot recipes, especially for beef. I love these freezer to crockpot meals that I have for beef, but wanted to create something a little nicer for Sunday Dinner. I don’t have the greatest record of success with roasts in the oven but I really love a good beef roast over egg noodles or potatoes. I made this recipe the other day and it just turned out fabulous. Even my neighbor and his boys (who popped in the house to watch the last half of the Eagles game with us and ended up staying for dinner) went nuts for it. The only downside to them loving it? I…

Regardless of your politics, chances are you would agree with the conclusion that not having health insurance can be disastrous-not just for your medical health but for you financial one as well. That’s part of the driving force behind the Affordable Care Act. Lacking health insurance can be that devastating to the average American household.

  • The Cemetery as Tree Nursery: Capsula Mundi

    Jeff McIntire-Strasburg
    17 Sep 2014 | 8:21 am
    Last week, we took a look at composting as an option once we’ve passed on. Got one or two “Ewwww” responses on that; most were positive, though. One interesting question that came up: what about a spot for visiting? After all, that’s probably the main thing a cemetery offers: a permanent place associated with our loved one. My response: why not mark the spot where the compost is buried, and turn that into a memorial of some kind? It turns out that two Italian designers not only considered this question well before me, but in much more depth. Designers Anna Citelli and…

    16 Sep 2014 | 8:27 am
    As a native Southerner (and, more specifically, a Louisianian), I know a thing or two about invasive species: Spanish moss, kudzu, and nutria all figure into my memories of growing up. So far, methods to control these species and the damage they do have come up short –  that’s generally the case everywhere. Asian carp are still doing their thing in the Great Lakes, and, as I found out in the last week, milfoil – an invasive plant species – is wreaking havoc on lake ecosystems in the Northeast. According to CentralMaine.com, the state’s Department of…

This is hopeful news in response to last year’s tragic loss of workers’ lives in garment factories. Activists, garment factory owners, and families demanded some changes be made, and TAU responded.

  • Poop to Profit: Turning Animal & Plant Waste into Useful Materials

    Important Media Cross-Post
    12 Sep 2014 | 9:53 am
    Ever looked at Fall leaves or the dog’s waste and thought “Hey… there’s money to be made there!” Nah – you probably just raked, shoveled, and disposed (in an environmentally-friendly manner, of course). But leaves and poop can both be turned into useful materials, as proven by a couple of budding social enterprises in India. And the process of reclaiming this waste for use can put some of the world’s poorest people to work.

    C’mon, you know it’s happened to you: you buy lots of fresh produce with all sorts of good intentions, and a sizable portion of it ends up starting the composting process in your crisper drawer. I don’t know how much of the 40% of American food that gets wasted meets its demise this way, but I’m guessing its a fair amount. We want to cook with fresh foods, but our schedules sometimes get the best of us. So, I’m guessing these competing interests of our desire for fresh, healthy foods and our busy schedules have contributed to the growing popularity of home…

    Tiffany
    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.

    Tiffany
    9 Sep 2014 | 1:53 pm
    In recent years there has been coverage and discussion on the dangers of plastics and in particular bisphenol A  or BPA and PVC (polyvinyl chloride).  Recent studies have showed that very low doses of some of these common plastics ingredients may cause genetic abnormalities, birth defects and brain damage. These plastics have also exhibited the ability to leach certain chemicals into foods that they come into contact with, especially when exposed to high temperatures. So how do we find out what kinds of plastics are in the materials we touch or use each day? If you take a look at the bottom…

    I’m what you would call a laid back mom when it comes to my kids bedtime routine.  I try to be patient {God is still working on me}, I have expectations for them,  I expect them to have manners, and to obey me when I ask them to do something, but I’m pretty easy going when it comes to things like bed time.  Perhaps it is because since I became a stay at home mom and we have begun homeschooling it has taken some of the pressure off about when kids HAVE to be in bed, when I HAVE to be in bed, and when my kids HAVE to be up in the morning. Sometimes we tuck the kids in their beds…

  • Simple Popcorn Cake Recipe

    Kim Rowley

    My great-aunt Verna used to make popcorn cake for every family get-together, so when my mom invited all us kids out for dinner on Labor Day, she decided to carry on the tradition and made popcorn cake for us. It was quite tasty and brought back memories of being young and carefree again. Popcorn Cake Recipe 18 cups popcorn 1 stick margarine (1/2 cup) 1 bag marshmallows (10 oz) food coloring & sprinkles (optional) I know 18 cups of popcorn seems like a lot, but it gets all pressed together!

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…

  • 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…

    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. The little shower timer, which turned up in the post as one of my water-saving freebies, has turned out to be a godsend. (By the way, if you haven’t snagged…

    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…

    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…

    It is no mystery; California is shoe melting hot during the hottest days of summer. Air conditioning and a well insulated home is not a desire but more a necessity. Yet, now more than ever, Californians need to watch our water and energy usage. With the heat ahead, it is a great time to take […]

    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.

    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…

    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.

    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…

The day of the planned day-cation to St. Augustine with my boyfriend I was stressed to near-tear level (mad at myself for glitches along the week, I'm a grotesque pedantic work perfectionist). I nearly passed out on a bike ride (more on that later) and we accidently missed breakfast ("free" fruit I wanted you so!) but we had a wonderful time. I had to share photos of JayBird Inn because…

(I'm afro-Latina on the Puerto Rican side of my family.) The chemical sulfates in shampoo dry out already-dry and delicate hair. Then there's the endocrine disrupters...the suds going down the drain and poisoning our water supply...the horror, the horror.

    Everyone has a “bucket list,” the things they want to do before they kick the bucket to really enjoy life, explore and LIVE before it’s too late.  I constantly think about “the bucket,” knowing that our time is limited and it’s up to each of us, individually to take charge of the biggest, craziest dreams and claim them for ourselves, knowing that no one will do it for us! I have a few big things on my bucket list- one of which, I’m really, really excited about this coming year- in 2015 I will be getting married and the icing on the (wedding) cake is…

    Our little condo is cozy- most of our space serves multiple purposes.  My office doubles as our guest room and it has been a work in progress since I moved in over a year ago. To me, the best spaces are functional spaces, that can accommodate other purposes. When working with Sauder Furniture, I was excited to put the final touches on the room with furniture pieces that could fit our budget ($250) and easily be moved or reworked from office, to a space for guests. I originally picked an inspiration room & three pieces of furniture and got to work! I chose an upholstered storage ottoman…

    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.

    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.

Right now they are loaded with tons of green tomatoes, and some of them are just starting to blush red.

    The average American spends upwards of $750 on holiday shopping. If you’re putting that amount on a credit card, it could take you about 5 years to pay it off. (Not to mention the $350 you’ll pay in interest!) Let’s stop being average. It’s time to break the cycle of debt and learn how to afford the holidays. Before we can talk about how you’re going to pay for your Christmas shopping, we have to address three very important things: First, you absolutely must determine a gift-giving plan.  Having a solid plan is the key to figuring out how much to budget for the…

I was trying so hard to keep up appearances. I was buying stuff just to buy stuff.  I wanted to be thoughtful, but that was hard because I didn’t know people very well.  And then we began having kids and the gift-giving decisions got even tougher to make.  It felt like there were…

    You can’t just clip coupons anymore. You have to be able to get $300 worth of groceries for $1.37. You can’t just recycle anymore, you have to upcycle. You can’t just cook meals at home.  You have to make everything at home from scratch. In advance. All this frugal competition and the fear of doing things wrong is exhausting. Sometimes it feels like there’s this competition to see who can be the most frugal.  Or sometimes it’s who can be the most green.  Or sometimes it’s who can be the most organized.

    10 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
    Managing your finances is a lot like managing your diet.  There’s only so many calories you should consume in a day.  There’s only so much money you should spend each day. Knowing that doesn’t prevent us from overindulging.  Bad spending habits have a way of sneaking up on us, just like too much late-night snacking does on our pants. In the last few years, we’ve paid off $40,000 in debt and I lost 30 pounds.  It took some serious work to break our bad spending habits and change our diets.  And it’s still something we work on today.  But I have found some…

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) filed a lawsuit in Federal District Court in the Western District of Missouri to shut down the payday lender at the heart of the scheme. The CFPB alleges that the Hydra Group used lead generators, online sites, that offer to help get you a payday loan. They allegedly gobbled…

    Why review your Medicare plan? Some insurance companies plan to raise monthly premiums in 2015 and that’s one big reason for you to take a look. Sure it’s a pain in the neck and you’d probably rather ignore the “Annual Notice of Changes,” and the stack of information, you get in the mail. But you may save money and get a better deal if you compare your current plan with a plan offered by another insurer. There’s also the possibility that your plan will raise rates and another plan will not.   My insurer, for example, sent notification that the Part D,…
