  • 36 Things You Can Share to Save Money

    Cheapism Blog
    24 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    From Airbnb to RelayRides, "collaborative consumption" is shaking up today's economy. Although the hype has surrounded online networks of strangers sharing rides and residences, consumers can also tap into a close-knit neighborhood, family, or group of friends to help offset the cost of big-ticket items. Thinking creatively about what can be shared can result in a big financial win for everyone involved. We've rounded up a list of 36 goods and services that you don't necessarily need to keep to yourself. Does every family on the block need their very own snow blower (item No. 1)? Surely your…

    Earlier this month I shared with you an easy-to-follow recipe to make an all-natural foot scrub using lemon juice, coconut oil and sea salt. If you’ve tried it, I bet your feet are feeling refreshed and ready for summer. I know it may be tempting to buy new sandals, but don’t waste your money or further contribute to the ever-growing landfills. Instead, try giving your plain ole flip flops a makeover. Also known as jandals, slappies and step-ins in other parts of the world, flip flops are a must-have in many of our wardrobes. They only cost a buck or two, and easily slip on and off. I…

  • Our New Washing Machine

    Frugal Babe
    6 Apr 2014 | 9:19 pm
    Five years ago, when we bought our house, we got a great deal on a second hand washing machine.  That machine served us well ever since, but it started to fritz out a couple months ago.  It wasn’t spinning the clothes out, and would sometimes just stop in the middle of a cycle.  We live just fine without a dryer, and although I lived for two years in the Peace Corps doing all of my laundry by hand, I wasn’t ready to add that task to my chore list at this point.  So I started shopping for a new washing machine.  I wanted another front loading, HE machine, and I…

  • Clutterfree with Kids

    3 Feb 2014 | 8:57 am
    A few weeks ago, I received an advance copy of Joshua Becker’s new book, Clutterfree with Kids.  The book went on sale last week (and quickly became the #1 self-help book on Amazon – congratulations Joshua!), so you may have already heard of it or read it.  But if you haven’t yet, I highly recommend it.  I only made it halfway through the book before I had to stop reading and begin a major clutter-purge.  I spent an afternoon in the playroom with our boys, getting rid of stuff.  We ended up with two big bags full of stuff to donate to the thrift store, a huge…

    So far this school year, I think we’ve been invited to seven birthday parties (we’ve attended three).  One was for our son’s best friend, where only a few kids were invited.  But for the other six parties, every kid in the class was invited (there are 21 kids in the class).  I don’t know all of the parents well enough to know whether they really want to invite 20 kids to a party, or whether they feel like they should out of social obligation or some sort of feeling that if they don’t invite everyone, people will feel left out.  I’m sure that in some…

    Just a short post today, to share a great article with you.  Francis Thompson’s How I made sure all 12 of my kids could pay for college themselves is an excellent read.  His final sentences – “We were and are not our kids’ best friends.  We were their parents.” –  are key.  And so many of the points he made rang true to me.  Much of it sounds like my own childhood (although I was one of four, not twelve), other than the sports and activities section.  My own parents took the opposite position on that one, limiting extra curricular activities…

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).

  • Tennessee Passes Plan for Tuition-Free Two-Year College

    Trent (Frugal Scholar)
    23 Apr 2014 | 2:00 am
    This week, Tennessee lawmakers approved a plan by Gov. Bill Haslam offer free community college tuition to all graduates of high schools in the state, The Tennessean reported. The state’s House of Representatives joined the Senate in approving “Tennessee Promise.” The plan, which will take effect in 2015, is an effort to encourage a larger share of the population to seek college credentials. The approval, 87-8, comes a day after the Senate approved the legislation 30-1. “The governor is grateful for the General Assembly’s overwhelming support of the Tennessee…
  • Making Timely Student Loan Payments? You May Be In Default, Anyway

    Trent (Frugal Scholar)
    22 Apr 2014 | 2:00 am
    Many private student loan contracts include clauses that allow the lender to demand the full loan balance if a borrower’s co-signer dies or files for bankruptcy, leading lenders to place loans in “auto-default” even if the borrower hasn’t made any missteps, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s mid-year report issued this week. CFPB does not say in the report how often lenders actually demand a borrower’s full loan balance, but said it’s heard an uptick in complaints on the issue over the last two years. And 90 percent of private…

    If you are like nearly half of all college students today, you count on financial aid to attend college. In fact, many experts — several quoted in this blog — suggest that you use financial aid awards as a way to evaluate the schools you’re looking at. What if, however, even after applying to a number of schools and looking at the various packages that you’ve received, that the financial aid offered simply isn’t enough to allow you to attend college. This is not an uncommon dilemma. On the contrary, it is one that has confronted literally millions of families who are wondering how…

    Older, brick-and-mortar colleges from the East Coast are taking their venerated brands on the road. While there are no Greek columns or sprawling green lawns at the Charlotte, N.C. satellite campus of Boston-based Northeastern University’s, the school’s location, on the 11th story of an office building in the middle of the city’s uptown district, is no accident. The Charlotte branch of the 116-year-old Boston university is an example of a new phenomenon in U.S. higher education: Rather than waiting for students to come to them, universities are coming to the students, launching…

    The costs of the cyberattack made this year on the University of Maryland reportedly will run into the millions of dollars, according to data-security professionals who work in higher education. Experts further say that this same type financial and reputational gut punch threatens many colleges that are also vulnerable to serious data breaches. A tally of costs related to the breach is not yet available, Ms. Brown says. But several data-security professionals interviewed by The Chronicle of Higher Education say the total will reach seven figures. “You are talking about 300,000 people…

  • Clean flip-flops

    Sara Noel
    22 Apr 2014 | 5:56 am
    Flip-flops are worn often during the summer, but they get dirty easily and then can look too ugly to wear. To clean them, you can soak them in a tub of water and powdered laundry detergent. Use a toothbrush and a soap bar to scrub them clean. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers or Clorox wipes work well, too. The first reader has a couple more ideas: Wash flip-flops: They can be tossed right into the washing machine or dishwasher and they come out nice and clean. I air-dry them. — Candace, California Using oxygen bleach: When you bleach with oxygen bleach, the hotter the water, the less time it…

    If you don’t have room for a full-scale garden, try container gardening. Focus on what you can do. Maybe start with a kitchen herb garden, or regrow produce scraps such as garlic, potatoes, leeks, ginger or celery, to name a few. The first reader tip shares more ideas: Window-box garden: If you have a sunny windowsill, buy some window boxes and plant seeds in them (you can use gutters and hang them outside, too). I am growing spinach, herbs and green onions, and I even have a bok choy plant in my east window. I’m even growing mini-carrots! The bok choy and green onions were…

    frugalblogger
    24 Apr 2014 | 7:27 am
    Think for a moment if you lost your job tomorrow and unemployment wasn’t an option. Maybe your local union is about to go on strike, which means you’ll be hitting the picket lines and hoping that you can live without your income or, if you’re married, one less paycheck every two weeks. These are far too realistic situations, and ones that most Americans aren’t prepared to handle when they take a long, hard look at their debt to income ratio, more specifically their income vs. what they pay out each month. Take that shortcoming one step further and ask yourself this…

    Spring has sprung, and summer isn’t far behind. For most, this time of year means the end of subzero temperatures and snow finally melting, but for the shopping community, these seasons mean something totally different. It’s time to hit the stores and restock our wardrobe. That way of thinking permeates through a nice portion of shoppers, the ones who wait patiently while the in store display shifts from winter boots and outwear to bathing suits, tank tops and skirts. Along with the latest looks of the season comes something that most of the population isn’t quite prepared…

    You just finished spending a remarkable sum of money to ensure your education is solidified. The next steps: finding a job, a place to live and starting your adult life with a clean slate. Part of that starting from scratch mentality should include stepping cautiously when it also comes to your financial future, how you spend those first few hard earned paychecks and whether you opt to start opening lines of credit before you’ve even taken off your graduation gown. One of the more common missteps from college graduates is the propensity to overspend on that first apartment, especially…
  • GUT CHECK: Cleaning up your expenses shouldn’t include cutting wellness budget

    frugalblogger

    When it comes to overhauling your budget and cutting back on your expenses, your health is an easy target. More often than not, your wellbeing takes the biggest hit when you decide that you’ll need to start saving money, and that can only happen by eliminating the amount of money you’re spending on a monthly basis. First up on the chopping block almost always is any sort of fitness routine, regimen or gym membership. The health club or gym membership gets plenty of attention as far as an neat and clean way to save between $30-100 per month, whether you’re paying for just…
  • IMPROMPTU SCRIPT: Rising costs of medications don’t have to affect your budget

    frugalblogger
    29 Mar 2014 | 9:18 am
    Not all medications are created equal, especially in the eyes of the health care companies that are paying the majority of costs for them. Consumers who wait patiently on line at their pharmacy of choice are incredibly grateful when they compare the actual cost of the medicine versus what your co pay actually ends up being. That $5, $10 or $20 price tag far exceeds the potential of paying in upwards of a few hundred dollars for one prescription. But what if you can’t afford health care or you have one particular medication that either isn’t covered or your insurance company only…

  • Five More Things You Never Need to Buy

    Quart sized freezer bags. You probably throw them away every week if you buy frozen vegetables. Those bags are freezer bags. They wouldn't sell them in those bags if they weren't capable of keeping the vegetables fresh and frost free. Cut them carefully across the top when you open them and use a twist'em tie or rubber band to close them securely when you fill them. Refrigerator containers.

    Paper towels. Use rags cut from old clothing, linens or towels. Cut and hem them and they will last a very long time, wash after wash. You will no doubt wind up with clothing or other material that isn't absorbent or won't wash well. Cut those up and save them for nasty jobs so you can throw them away like you would paper towels. Paper napkins. A very simple solution is to cut some squares of

    'Tis the season to bring those spring flowers inside to enjoy! If you don't have any of your own growing, you might be able to beg a few from someone who does, or finding some in a dumpster, but barring those things, go to the flower shop at your grocery store. Flowers and plants are much cheaper there than anywhere else. Choose carefully so your bouquet will last as long as possible. Look at

    19 Feb 2014 | 8:55 am
    My south windows (well, all windows in this house) have very narrow ledges, so it's difficult to use them for anything. Earlier this year, I decided to sprout some sunflowers and found that I could use very small square containers set on a styrofoam meat tray, balanced on the narrow ledge. The pots get sunlight all day long and the sprouts grew well. Silly me. I finally decided to use that

  • Meal Plan Week of 4/21

    Jenn @ Frugal Upstate
    24 Apr 2014 | 6:34 am
    Welcome to a really, super seriously late meal plan.  Despite not publishing this on Monday, I have in fact been cooking for the family.  Since so many folks really enjoy these meal plans and tell me that it helps give them ideas for their own families, I figured I’d go ahead and post what we’ve already eaten and what’s on the schedule for the rest of the week. These are the considerations for this week: 1.  After having the kids home last week for break I feel like I am totally behind, so there is a lot of work and house catch up that I’m doing.  I know from…

    Happy Earth Day everyone!  To celebrate here’s a roundup of “Earth Friendly” projects and ideas from Frugal Upstate! These are some of my favorite projects and posts throughout the years that emphasize the “reduce, recycle, reuse” philosophy. First up is the recycled compost bucket made out of a “dishwasher detergent pod” bucket.  I love when I can save something sturdy from the trash and give it a new life!   Speaking of composting, it’s one of my favorite ways to reduce waste and be kind to the Earth, specifically the piece of earth that I…

    Jenn @ Frugal Upstate
    19 Apr 2014 | 6:20 pm
    The more I learn, the more I think that eating organically is the best choice for my family.  That’s why I garden organically and purchase locally raised meat in bulk.  I’d love to be able to go completely organic, but regrettably cost is, as with many things, a factor.  That’s why I was so excited to learn about the new Wild Oats line at Walmart–and happy to put out the information to all of you on their behalf. In their press release this week Walmart and the CEO of Wild Oats shared the news: “By partnering with Walmart, Wild Oats is starting a movement that…

    Looking for a tasty treat for your next party or dinner that looks amazing but doesn’t take forever to make?  Try Candied Pretzels!  These look fantastic, taste great, are inexpensive, and are easy to whip up.  Not only that–but you can customize them endlessly simply by changing out the color of the candy melts and the types of sprinkles used. In this example I’ve made them in soft, spring-y colors to celebrate Easter.  You could easily make them to match a baby shower theme, in school colors, to match a favorite sports team, or for any other holiday (orange and black…

    It’s starting to feel like spring here at the Frugal Upstate Village Homestead.  This weekend was up in the mid 70′s. . . but never fear, there is a chance of snow today.  (lucky us). I’ve got several things to consider this week: 1.  This week is spring break for the kiddos.  We have popped up to my sister’s for a quick overnight visit, but that takes 2 nights dinner out of the equation.  We don’t have any regular kid activities in the evening–but they are taking a boating certification course for two nights at 5:30–so supper will have to be…

  • Bycatch: Wasted Fish and Marine Life in Northeast and Atlantic Fisheries

    Guest Author

    The waters of the Northeast United States have helped nurture this country since the first settlers arrived hundreds of years ago. Some of the most historic and successful commercial American fisheries ply these waters in search of cod, flounder and haddock. But in their search, these fisheries haul in more than just these targeted species, often netting dolphins, sharks and even whales as unintentional catch or “bycatch.” In a new report released last month, Oceana has identified nine of the worst fisheries in the U.S. for bycatch, which combined throw away almost as much as they…

And a movement that gained momentum in California is going national. More than 20 million Americans live in communities with plastic bag bans or fees.

Mobile devices like these make living and working online incredibly convenient; in the developing world, they make communication and economic growth possible in ways that didn’t exist twenty years ago. But all of this progress comes at a price: our phones and computers are full of toxic materials, and despite the relative ease of recycling such devices, most of them still end up in landfills.

    20 Apr 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Weeds have gotten a bum rap. All over the shelves of gardening and home improvement stores you see tools and chemicals designed to get rid of weeds fast. They are often considered to be unsightly and they also tend to strangle out the plants you DO want to grow, like grass or veggies from the garden. Weeds are very hardy, drought tolerant, and they propagate quickly. Pluck a few out of the ground and a couple day later there are ten more. They can be like a mythical Hydra when you cut its head off. That is why they are such a problem. Unless you decide they aren’t such a problem and…
  • BlackFish – Have You Seen It Yet??

    Tiffany
    15 Apr 2014 | 11:00 pm
    I recently sat down to watch the movie BlackFish again. It made me just as angry watching it the second time as it did the first time. The first time I watched I had to keep leaving the room because some parts were very upsetting to me. This time I made myself watch it. I cannot believe that Sea World still has patrons. I cannot believe that anyone who has seen this movie and lives in the vicinity of one of these parks has not been going to them and picketing or laying down in the entrance ways to prevent people from entering. The stuff going on in these parks is horrifying. One of the worst…

    Attn: Giveaway the bottom of this post! Deodorant is a hot topic among crunchy, natural, health-minded folks. Conventional deodorant has lots of nasty ingredients and more than one report coming from the scientific community has hinted at a possible link between the nasties in deodorant and beast cancer. Just a quick gander at breast cancer rates and you may soon find yourself freaking out about what kind of deodorant you are using. Think about this tidbit. It is said that it only takes 26 seconds for a body care product to be absorbed into our bloodstream. That should make us very aware of…
  • A Fierce Green Fire – Watch it On Netflix

    Tiffany
    13 Apr 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Over the weekend I enjoyed a new movie added to the Netflix lineup recently. It had been a while since I really browsed what they have to offer, thinking I have watched just about every eco documentary on there. I really wanted to spend my Saturday out in the yard and actually I got up at about 6:00 am (hours before anyone else would wake) and headed outside to do just that. One misstep on my back deck though resulted in a horrifying popping sound from my leg and a wave of intense pain. So I spent my weekend on the couch hoping that rest would resolve it (we shall see!) I was so impressed…

  • 7 Tips for Getting Kids to Try New Foods

    Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom
    23 Apr 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Feeding young children can often feel like a battle. Especially on those days when you make a new dish, or cook a vegetable in a different way. Here are 7 ideas for helping your children to try new foods: 1. Offer a Wide Variety From the time your child starts eating, you should be offering a wide variety of shapes, colors and textures. This will help your child’s natural palate develop and will give you many options for when your toddler begins to feel empowered to make food choices of their own and begin to resist certain foods. This is a phase that toddlers go through and I encourage you…

    Its spring! That means warmer weather, everything turning vibrant and green again, flowers blooming, and rain showers.  There is only one thing that makes rainy weather a GOOD thing for my two littles – puddles.  My kids {all kids?} love to jump in the rain puddles during and after a rain shower.  But, rain boots can be expensive, especially when you consider how quickly little children outgrow their shoes.  So, we opted to “cute up” some cheap chore boots we found at Walmart.

  • HOW TO: make your candles last longer

    Miss Thrifty
    13 Apr 2014 | 3:20 pm
    Remember those gorgeous scented candles I found in Waitrose? Like Diptyque, but a fraction of the price? I promised some tips and tricks for making your candles last longer, and here they are. You will need: nail clippers, a ruler, a stick of dry spaghetti and an eye on the clock. 1. Pick at that wick. Candle buffs decree that there is a correct length for a wick: it should be exactly 1/4 of an inch long. If your wick is longer than this and you have a jar candle, you may end up with soot on the jar and a big flame that burns your candle down mighty fast.  However manufacturers – even…

    Miss Thrifty
    31 Mar 2014 | 5:34 pm
    Diptyque candles have a cult following. They have nice scents. They last for ages.  You can buy them from Space NK for £40 a pop. Can you tell that I’m struggling to sound enthusiastic here? The truth is that a decade after Diptyque came into vogue, I am still agog that people will pay that much for a chuffing candle. £40?! It seems downright tragic to spend that on a blob of wax in a glass, just to give the sitting-room an occasional floral pong. So if you like Diptyque candles but, like me, cannot thoil* them, I have a proposal for you: Go and check out the Flower Garden range of…

    Happy to say that the snow is finally receding and rain is in the forecast, which would help it to go that much faster. It sure has been a long winter. Longer for some than others, as some people go away in the winter on hot holidays, and others are left here to "deal with it". Ourselves, we were lucky to go away a few weeks ago to warm Arizona. But I must say I did feel guilty being in the warmth of the sun while Jakey and our family were still back home in the cold. We have been trying to sell our snow machine, but no luck.

    23 Apr 2014 | 2:01 pm
    Scams that target seniors can be especially profitable for thieves because the elderly often have a lifetime worth of savings squirreled away. The FBI notes that seniors are also vulnerable because their generation was raised to be polite and trusting, and with age taking a toll on memory they often make poor witnesses after the fact. Major policy changes and crises serve as springboards for scammers eager to fleece people. After the Boston bombing this year and the Haiti earthquake in 2010 fake charities netted thousands of dollars supposedly intended to help victims. AARP reports that…

  • The Wealthy Cheapskate: How to Take a Private Jet for Less

    23 Apr 2014 | 10:13 am
    Skip the lines, forget taking off your shoes, and hop aboard your private jet. And now it's time to unbuckle your wallet, regardless whether your thoughts veer towards purchasing one outright or arranging chartered service. Let's consider the first option. Industry sources report that an early model Cessna Citation can be had for $200,000-plus, and a pre-owned Gulfstream 2 or 3 goes for $600,000-$800,000. While the price of an older-model jet is certainly less than the latest and greatest, fuel and maintenance costs are invariably higher. Warns Paul Sanchez, chief strategy officer at Clipper…
  • What Kind of Cat Is Cheapest to Own?

    22 Apr 2014 | 10:21 am
    The short answer to the question "which cat breed is the cheapest?" is…a mixed breed. Obviously, that doesn't offer much guidance but it does rule out pure-bred cats. These fancy felines cost more to obtain as well as maintain than the vast majority of mixed breeds. Cost to Acquire Cat. The cheapest way to bring a cat home is to rescue the animal from a shelter or the street. Note, however, that the savings from taking in a stray may be illusory because you don't know the cat's medical condition. Cats that come from shelters often are accompanied by up-to-date health records. In many cases…

You purchase the items, use manufacturers coupons if you have them, and then come home and submit your receipt to get cash back. It is easy and fast. Once you have $20 saved up, they send you a check. In my first week of trying Checkout 51, I saved an extra$6. If you do not like to clip coupons, Checkout 51  is another way to…

    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.

  • Vintage Walls of Curiosities: Your Exotic... and Erotic Trinket Display Muses

    23 Apr 2014 | 6:26 am
    Beautiful woman, stylish men, sexy dens and shelves stocked with exotic trifles- for erotic trifles; these advertisements selling the swinging sixties bachelor life are my main muse at the moment. Discovered in a batch of commercial furnishing magazines from the late 1960s and early 1970s. The styling combines careful minimalism with collector's style, it's warm and inviting. Stimulating and inspiring."Oh, the Tribal Masks? Acquired on my last African Safari..along with 'Darlene' here and this dandy white ruffled shirt.

  • How to Eat Raw Vegan on the Cheap: Discount Shopping Tips + Closing Reminder

    Van
    22 Apr 2014 | 6:20 am
    I wanted to wrap up this Raw Vegan re-cap series with a quick chat about adding more fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds to your diet on the cheap-- and why it's worth the extra expense versus eating processed food to save money. We're not discount machines,  you are worth the extra expense for quality food! And it tastes better too, win/win. You can eat healthy for less, here are some suggestions for saving:Clockwise: greens and herbs from my garden, bulk discounts at a nearby farmer's market, veggies and freebies from my kitchen job, and cutting delicious veggies at the kitchen…
  • MODify: Make Your Own Easy Game Board Shelves 3 Ways, DIY Simple Shelving

    Van
    18 Apr 2014 | 5:43 am
    Let's go back to a popular first world childhood dilemma. You're bored with pals, enjoying that luxurious free time you had no idea would be scant in adult years, and decide to bust out the board games to alleviate boredom. Lo and behold, you can't play because half the pieces are missing. Gremlins take them in the night, I tell you, because I have never had all of my game pieces remain intact. (Save for my precious Transformers Monopoly, naturally.) So what to do with the beautiful game boards now that you can't play? Turn them into sexy shelves!There are three ways to approach…

    I've been cooking mostly healthy vegan and "raw" for 2.5 to 3 years at home and for over a year professionally in a raw vegan kitchen* and I've learned a bout how keeping your pantry stocked for making any dish you crave along the way. This is a great guide for anyone just trying to incorporate more home cooking into their life, too. Print and use it as a shopping list next time you're out. I like to buy herbs in bulk from places like Whole Foods and Native Sun (local) but Mountain Rose Herbs has excellent selection and quality herbs and spices as well.An earnest peek at some pantry staples…

  • 10 Tips for Dry Skin and Eczema

    The Thrifty Mommy
    23 Mar 2014 | 3:17 pm
    During the winter months, the indoor heat and outside cold air can dry out your skin. Although spring is officially here, many of us suffer with dry skin and eczema all year long.  I have suffered with eczema and dry skin for over 20 years and have learned some tips along the way. Some of these may help you. 1.  Moisturize frequently. It’s best to moisturize your skin within a few minutes of taking a shower or bath. This is because your pores are open and absorb the lotion. Moisturize troubled places throughout the day. 2.  Use a humidifier. Heating systems blow hot dry air…
  • 20 Ways to Save Money on Groceries Without Coupons

    The Thrifty Mommy
    9 Mar 2014 | 6:51 pm
    Since returning to full-time teaching a few years ago, I am not the couponer that I used to be. I enjoy using coupons and saving money, but I don’t have much time to match up coupons and sales.  I am still saving a lot of money though and I’m definitely getting my groceries for less money than I would if I shopped primarily at a discount store such as Wal-Mart. Today’s shopping trip is a perfect example of such grocery savings. My grocery bill before deductions was $251.86. After the sales and savings my bill was $121.43. That’s way more than I normally spend, but I…

It was bright and shiny and of course, new. I overhead someone say, “Congratulations! You deserve it!” You deserve it. We hear that so much today. You deserve a new car. You deserve to go on a big vacation. You work hard. You deserve some new living room furniture. You deserve to go out to eat. You deserve that candy bar. Do you deserve it?

    I haven’t made my usual Walgreens trip in a few weeks because there just hasn’t been much exciting on sale lately, but I needed some eyeliner and I want to try this new Morton’s Epsom lotion. I’m a heel fanatic and at the end of the day my feet are often sore but I never seem to have time to soak them in epsom salts so I’m anxious to try the lotion and see how it works.

        True to it’s name, most of us probably use Baking Soda for baking. You may remember your grandmother mentioning it’s other uses. Here are a few of my favorite unusual uses for Baking Soda.

    24 Apr 2014 | 5:49 am
      I’m vlogging to tackle another reader question on frugal living this week- how are we saving money on our wedding?  I’m going to talk about that,but also, how we aren’t saving money on our wedding. Honestly- like anything in life, living frugally is about priorities.  When you plan a wedding, you have to choose what’s worth spending money on, what isn’t and of course, how to console yourself when reality and your budget don’t match up. We had some hard let-downs when we found venues we LOVED but realized they would push our budget to the breaking…

    Going outside without a coat and a scarf that’s only meant for decoration is so refreshing! This was one of the worst winters in Chicago history and I feel like I lived in the same tired DKNY down feather parka I’ve had for 4 years for months on end. As a California native, I’m quite shocked I can even go outside when it’s 50 degrees outside without a coat, but honestly- I’m relishing the sunshine and in some weird way, 50 seems so warm now. Since frugal fashion means you can’t go out and buy a ton of new stuff and need to make pieces work over several…

    Start a new Easter tradition by making mango-mousse-filled cream puffs with the junior chefs in your life. (VIDEO) DO IT YOURSELF | We fell in love with these sweet mango-mousse-filled cream puff Easter chicks the first time we spotted them at Crema, our neighbourhood java haunt. We wish we could tell you they were ridiculously inexpensive to buy ready-made or that they are a treat you can whip up yourself in under a dozen minutes (on Frugalbits we like our recipes to be lightening quick), but they aren’t. What they are for us—and hopefully you, too—is the inspiration for an Easter…

    Here’s a fun and memorable way expectant parents are revealing the gender of their baby. SNEAK PEEK  | Our daughter Alexis got married last spring, and now she and her husband Dave (pictured here on their wedding day) are expecting a baby. Last week, they went for their 20-week ultrasound. This imaging technique is used five months into a pregnancy to determine whether a fetus is developing normally. At 20 weeks, it can also detect whether the baby is a boy or a girl—if the gender is visible, of course. Lexi and Dave wanted to know the sex of their baby. And they wanted to share the…
  • Make Dulce de Leche In The Microwave

    13 Jan 2014 | 6:01 am
    Most recipes for making dulce de leche require slaving over a stovetop. Here’s how to beat that heat and whip it up quick. EASY LIKE THIS | When friends of ours returned from a holiday in Argentina a while back, they brought us a jar of the country’s finest dulce de leche. Dulce de leche is a traditional Argentinean dessert made by caramelizing sugar in milk. It is not to be confused with North American caramel sauce, which made by caramelizing sugar in water. Dulce de leche is more subtly sweet than ordinary caramel sauce is; it’s also infinitely creamier, making it perfect on top of…

  • Should Homeowners Enroll in Bi-Weekly Mortgage Payment Programs?


    Guest Author
    19 Apr 2014 | 8:03 am
    Homeowners who borrow money to purchase homes have the great responsibility of paying their sizable mortgage payments every month. Mortgage payments are often the most costly expense homeowners pay, which includes principal, interest, taxes and insurance. The cost of the payment can be difficult for the homeowner to afford, the large sum can be overwhelming and the payment schedule can be challenging to manage. Depending on the financial goals of homeowners, some prefer to pay off their mortgages as early as possible to get out of debt or reduce their interest costs. Interest is the price…

  • What to Do if You Can’t Pay Your Taxes

    11 Apr 2014 | 8:36 am
    Whatever you do make sure you file your return on time. The penalties for failing to file your tax return on time are stiff. You will be charged 5% on the amount you owe each month up to a maximum of 25% of the tax owed after 5 months. It is much better to file your return on time, even if you don’t have the cash to pay, to avoid having to pay this penalty. Don’t have the cash? Here are several options: Options to Pay Your Taxes if You Don’t Have the Cash Pay With Credit or Debit Card If you owe $1000 or less it will most likely make sense to pay your tax bill with a credit or…

  • Tips to Build Your Credit Score

    Paul
    9 Apr 2014 | 6:39 am
    Credit scores are incredibly important these days.  While some may think that credit scores are only used when purchasing something with credit, that is simply not entirely true.  Having a good credit score can affect your insurance premiums, if you can rent an apartment, if you can get a job, along with paying cheaper rates when you finance.  You can get big savings when you buy a home or car with credit just based on your credit score.  If you don’t have any credit or need to get a better credit score, then here are some ways that you can build your credit. Credit scores are…

    Oma Baby Movement Monitor Review   New moms get super stressed about everything… I know from personal experience.

    If you're reading this, you're probably not rich and famous. That's cool, because neither am I. I'm a cheapskate by neccesity, to be completely honest. If I could, I'd live in a million dollar home and drive a BMW (well – maybe). That's just not my life, though, and it's probably not your either. Just because we're not rich, doesn't mean our lives can't be as meaningful and complete as… more

  • Orgasmically Good Deviled Eggs with Bacon and Dill

    Dawn Gifford
    7 Apr 2014 | 10:00 am
    I just love eggs. They are a cheap, delicious superfood that nourishes my family’s body and soul. And springtime is when the hens start laying again and when many religions and traditions include eggs in their rites as a symbol of fertility and abundance. This means there is often a surplus of hard-boiled eggs around. That’s when I like to make deviled eggs.  My recipe for deviled eggs uses healthy pasture-raised eggs, which are far better for your health and the environment than regular industrially produced , or even organic eggs. (Here’s why.) However, you…

    24 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a great week!  This is the only week this month I don’t have a trip schedule which means that I have been working like crazy to get ahead!  After attending the Launch conference a few weeks ago I have so many new ideas that I want to get started on.  The hardest part is just finding enough time to get it all done and still make enough time for my family as well.  I have found that waking up early is what works best for me, so this week I have been up at 4am every day!  Are you an early riser too?  What other ways do you successfully…
  • Orange Glazed Pork Chops

    Ruth Soukup
    23 Apr 2014 | 5:15 am
    Are you ready for another freezer friendly meat recipe that is both foolproof and delicious? So far we’ve tackled both chicken (with this to-die-for Honey Lemon Garlic Chicken) and beef (with this oh-so-easy London Broil), so I thought it was only fitting that we move on to something just slightly more challenging:  Pork Chops. The main reason pork chops can be challenging is that it is really easy to overcook them, which can make them dry and tough.  Luckily this delicious orange glaze helps add a lot of moisture and flavor, but it is also important to cook them just enough.  For…

My family and I got back yesterday from our quick little 2-day cruise on the Carnival Sunshine, and it was so nice to get away together, even if just for a couple of days.  Living in Florida, cruising has always been our go-to vacation of choice because it is just so convenient and cost effective.  You can score some amazing last minute deals if you don’t have to fly, and once you are on board the ship, the food, entertainment, and even the kids club is all included!  We were super impressed…

  • How to Make Denim Coasters

    Christina Brown
    24 Apr 2014 | 5:49 am
    Ever since I saw the beautiful jean quilts my mom’s friend makes, I have been saving up all my ratty old pairs of jeans.  The thing is, I’m not much of a seamstress.  The last time I used a sewing machine was in 1992. But I do love the idea of keeping my old denim jeans out of the landfill. And I love the idea of turning them into something new and useful.  Since I was getting tired of my old pair of wooden coasters, and while it’s easy, I’m not a fan of fixing water spots on furniture, I decided to make denim coasters using a couple of pairs of old jeans. How to…

    I couldn’t call myself the Northern Cheapskate and not love a good garage sale.  Garage sales are fabulous ways to find some great bargains and keep perfectly good stuff from being dumped in a landfill. Garage sales have allowed me to find quality clothing and toys for my kids.  I’ve found some great kitchen tools and dishes.  I’ve scored some nice bookcases and chairs.  Garage sales have helped me save a lot of money over the years.  And as I’ve held my own garage sales with family and friends, they’ve helped me make money and reduce my own clutter.

  • Super Simple Fruit Salad

    Christina Brown
    22 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    My husband’s Grandma asked me to bring fruit to the family Easter gathering.  She wasn’t specific, and not being a really enthusiastic fruit eater, I was a bit stumped on what to bring. So I did what any modern day woman would do.  I looked around on Pinterest.  Several hours later, I found a great recipe for a super simple fruit salad. I  adapted the recipe I found from a wonderful website called Southern Bite. (See the original Secret Ingredient Fruit Salad recipe). And when I say it’s simple, it really is.  It can be a frugal recipe, too, depending on whether the…
  • Be Cheap… In Moderation

    Christina Brown
    21 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    A reader sent me a tweet awhile back asking me a simple question:  Where does one draw the line at being el cheapo and living a bit? He wondered if it was possible to be so frugal that you may be taking some joy from yourself. For those of us who have run up thousands of dollars in credit card debt, we know that shopping can be an addiction and living beyond your means can cause many problems. But what about savers? Can being frugal and embracing your inner cheapskate become a problem as well? I think it can.  If you’ve ever watched an episode of Extreme Couponing or Extreme…

  • Cash The Telemarketing Refund Check

    Barbara Nevins Taylor
    24 Apr 2014 | 10:22 am
    There’s a little payback on the way for 4,800 people who fell victim to a telemarketing scam that promised to lower their credit card interest rates if they paid an advance fee. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) says that starting in 2011 National Card Monitor, an Arizona-based company,  began a national cold-calling campaign that was allegedly a flat-out swindle. The FTC says telemarketers falsely told consumers they would get them low-rate credit cards and  balances from other cards could be transferred to the new ones. They asked for an advance fee of between $499 and $599.  The…
  • Simplifying Mortgage Closings

    Sign this. Sign that. Sign this one here.  A giant paper shuffle plays out around a table at every real estate closing and for anyone who buys a home the entire process is a confusing blur. You sign and pray that everything is right. Now the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau would like to bring the closing process into the 21st century.  It’s examining ways to overhaul the practice and that can be tough because banking rules vary by state. But the bureau takes a positive approach and plans to make suggestions for reform.  A starting point is its new report called Mortgage Closing…
  • Pay for Obamacare Insurance at CVS

    22 Apr 2014 | 4:13 pm
    Buy tooth paste and pay your Obamacare health insurance premium at the same time?  You may shake your head, but there’s some kind of symmetry here. CVS Caremark thinks it makes a lot of sense. The giant retail pharmacy chain plans to set up a service, sometime this spring, that lets you pay health insurance premiums at any of its 7600 stores, at no additional cost. Consider this a benefit of the Affordable Care Act and the fact that 8 million people signed up. Josh Flum, senior vice president of retail pharmacy, said in a written statement, ”Millions of Americans have enrolled…

    If you’re one of millions paying off your student loan, the burden can feel overwhelming. But it’s possible more will pile on to your load unless you’re careful.  You could get caught in the student loan co-signer nightmare. If your grandparent or parent co-signed for your loan and dies, that may trigger an automatic default and the lender can ask you for immediate repayment.  This is finally getting some attention, and it looks like there’s a remedy in the immediate future. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau tackled the issue of student loans. It estimates…
  • Spring Cleaning and Product Claims

    Barbara Nevins Taylor
    18 Apr 2014 | 12:01 pm
    Despite the crazy weather in New York, the spring cleaning bug bit me and I began to root around in black bags that I filled with garden stuff and stored in the basement for the winter. There was an awful smell coming from one, and I had force myself to open it.  And then, I wanted to kick myself. I discovered the plastic bag was filled with pesticides that we probably shouldn’t have bought or stored. And that got me to thinking about what I should buy, product labeling, and the claims made by companies and marketers. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is the watchdog for advertising…
