    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…

    Q.  My mother-in-law is making my wedding dress, but she used the wrong satin and it's very stiff. There's a delicate lace overlay appliqued to the satin. What can I do to soften the satin without ruining any of the material? I'm hoping to have more movement rather than structure.

    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…

  • 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…

    27 Jan 2014 | 7:52 am
    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…

    22 Jan 2014 | 9:39 am
    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).

  • These Libraries Elevate the Studying Experience

    Trent (Frugal Scholar)
    16 Apr 2014 | 2:00 am
    Often times, the library on campus is a dark, windowless building filled with rows of dusty, little-touched books. Quiet, institutional, such libraries do little to inspire great thoughts — more like great naps, really. In other cases, however, the library is the campus centerpiece: an iconic building, the mere image of which brings to mind the school and sparks great dreams of academic glory. Recently, Business Insider did a survey of such campus libraries. While clearly not comprehensive, it does a nice job covering both venerable, ivy-covered brick structures filled with years of…

    As the discussions over higher ed in the U.S. grow louder and more multi-faceted, one thing becoming increasingly clear is that higher education is no longer moved by by the same forces it used to be. Everything from technology changing the delivery system to the morphing of higher ed from a sector to an ‘industry’ has changed rapidly changed its face over the last decade or so. It’s no longer young students strolling to lectures among ivy-carpeted edifices. Today, consumers from around the world take delivery of education products online — often from companies that…
  • Finishing College In Three Years Can Save Students Thousands

    Trent (Frugal Scholar)
    14 Apr 2014 | 2:00 am
    In response to growing concern over student debt and rising college expenses — yet under pressure — to maintain academic quality — many higher ed institutions are looking for ways to help their students without damaging the quality of the students’ education. To this end, according to Time, more colleges are allowing students to finish up their four-year degrees in just three years. But only a tiny percentage of students are taking advantage. In 2012, Wesleyan University, an elite private college in Connecticut, became the highest-profile institution to actively…

    American students are well over $1 trillion in debt, and it’s starting to hurt everyone, economists say. Across the country, students are taking on increasingly large amounts of debt to pay for heftier education tuitions. Figures released last week by the Federal Reserve of New York show that aggregate student loans nationwide have continued to rise. At the end of 2003, American students and graduates owed just $253 billion in aggregate debt; by the end of 2013, American students’ debt had ballooned to a total of $1.08 trillion, an increase of over 300%, Time reports.

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).

    frugalblogger

    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…
  • COLLEGE FOUND: From classroom to credit debt, how did it happen?

    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

    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…

    Struggling from one day to the next, worrying about bills and how you’re going to pay them or hoping and praying you have enough money this month to cover all your expenses is the epitome of stress and certainly adds to a daily regimen that is riddled with concern. So with that, do you really think this is something you should tackle on your own? A number of reasons may factor into why you believe that you should forage into fixing your finances on your own. Perhaps the mentality that pushes to the forefront most is blame, specifically you accepting it thanks to your savings account and…

  • Feeling a Little Wonky

    Domestik Goddess
    27 Mar 2014 | 4:02 pm
    JR’s grandmother was a Brit who used to talk about feeling “wonky” every now and then, when she was a bit unsteady on her feet (age, not vino) and had to sit down. I wonder if this (wavy-wobbly furniture) was the way she saw the world, at those moments! The Mini Wonky Jewellery Box here, […]

    The hard truth is, in the real world, every so often you just end up having to buy some beverage that comes in a plastic bottle.  Big family-sized pop bottles for a birthday party, for example, or a bottle of water when you’re stuck in an airport queue for hours on end. I don’t get […]

    Growing up on the east coast of Canada, we frugally made the most of the garden harvest each year, right down to the last rock-hard green tomatoes left on the vine at first frost. It wasn’t until I grew up and moved away that I learned a whole chunk of the world has a completely […]

    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

  • More Affordable Organics!

    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…

    Here’s a quick tip for you!  Have you ever had to make a really large batch of meatballs–either for a HUGE meal or because you are making them ahead to freeze them?  Well it can take forever to roll out all those meatballs.  Pinch off a little piece of meat mixture, roll it into a ball, repeat. Here’s a way to speed up the process.  Take your meatball mixture and pat it out into a big rectangle about 1/2 of an inch thick.  Then take a knife an cut through the meat horizontally then vertically to form little squares. Viola–each one of those squares is a…

I’ve wondered for quite some time if adding some transparency, and taking the the proprietary aspects out of, genetic modification…
  • How to Build a Keyhole Garden

    Guest Author
    16 Apr 2014 | 5:21 pm
    I’m a big fan of raised bed gardening approaches: I really don’t want to do a ton of digging, and, as an urban homeowner, I need to maximize the space I have. So I was intrigued when I ran across this post on the keyhole garden, a raised-bed style of gardening that originated in Africa. The plan below provided by a reader at The Homesteading Boards is intriguing (though also expensive, as he mentions). Make sure to click through to appropedia’s page on the keyhole garden, and watch the videos available: you may get some ideas for simpler and less expensive approaches. If you…
  • Custom Snowboards Made from “Right in Our Back Yard” Wood: Empire Grown

    Important Media Cross-Post
    15 Apr 2014 | 7:55 am
    I’ve become really tired of the word “artisan” (or “artisanal”) on products: as far as I can see, it generally means “expensive.” I rarely see that such products involve the kind of loving, caring creativity undertaken by a true artisan.  What do I associate with that word? A deep level of knowledge of the materials and processes involved in creating a product. A dedication to small-scale production that allows the creator to assess the quality of each individual product. A personal connection with the customers who purchase the product (and those…
  • How to Build a Wind Turbine for $30

    Jeff McIntire-Strasburg
    14 Apr 2014 | 10:19 am
    Renewable energy = high upfront costs… right? Yes, if you’re paying someone else to put your system together for you. Now, that seems like kind of a no-brainer for most of us: I certainly don’t feel like I know enough to build my own solar panel array or wind turbine. But folks like Marcin Jakubowski of Open Source Ecology, and Daniel Connell, who created the Solarflower, think that an awful lot of us can build relatively sophisticated technology on our own… if we have the right instructions, and if the materials and tools required are easily available. Both of these…
  • World Wind Power Poised to Bounce Back after Slowing in 2013

    Earth Policy Institute
    11 Apr 2014 | 10:10 am
    By J. Matthew Roney At the end of 2013, the wind farms installed in more than 85 countries had a combined generating capacity of 318,000 megawatts, which would be enough to meet the residential electricity needs of the European Union’s 506 million people. New data from the Global Wind Energy Council show that wind developers built 35,000 megawatts of new generating capacity worldwide in 2013. This was down from 45,000 megawatts installed in 2012—marking only the second time in 25 years that installed capacity increased by less than it did the year before. The principal reason for the…

  • 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…
  • Stinky Pits? Go Primal With Pit Paste

    Tiffany
    14 Apr 2014 | 1:31 pm
    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…

  • My Week With the Kia Soul

    Tiffany
    8 Apr 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Last week I got to borrow this nifty car for a whole week. This was really my first experience with Kia. Beyond seeing them around the road I only knew them as the company that makes the cute commercials with the dancing hamsters. When the Soul arrived at my house I loved it from the get-go. The color (called Alien) is right up my alley. I pretty much only like cars that are green, yellow, or a vibrant blue. I had a magenta car once but no companies are making cars in that color anymore. :) This one is touted as being a bit greener (as in eco friendly) but I am going to be brutally honest…

They are calling it the “100 Years of Good” campaign – a year long celebration of special promotions, parties, commemorative packaging, and the Great American Gratitude Touch, a Chicken of the Sea Mermaid-hosted nationwide tour. As part of the tour the fantastic folks at Chicken of the Sea have offered to let me in on the giving fun.  I get to give away $1000 in $200 increments to 5…

    12 Apr 2014 | 8:42 pm
    Summer is coming and that means you and your kiddos are going to be wanting more cold drinks to keep cool! Most kids LOVE popsicles, slushies, and snow cones on a hot summer day. If you buy them out you’ll likely pay a premium price.  So why not make these cool drinks at home?  You’ll save a bunch of money AND you’ll get bonus points for being such a cool mom. Sure, there are lots of ways to make slushies at home. The most common method is to use some kind of commercial slushie syrup or to make your own using powdered drink mixes like Kool-aid.  But, if you’re…

    Spring is in the air! I’ve been enjoying some fun in the sun with my two little ones. Today, after enjoying some time outside we came in for a little kitchen fun. We baked these lemon cupcakes and the kids helped decorate them with jellybeans! If you’re looking for a fun activity to keep the kids entertained this spring this is one! I started with a Duncan Hines Signature Lemon Supreme Cake Mix. Lemon sings with spring! I baked it as directed and while the cupcakes cooled the kiddos had fun sorting the Starburst Jellybeans by colors so they could use them for decorating. We…
  • Real Food For Babies From Beech-Nut

    Denisesawyer
    10 Apr 2014 | 9:31 pm
    Okay, here’s my scoop on baby food: We fed our kids REAL foods from the start. Most of the time we’d feed them something {or many things depending on their stages} from our own meals. BUT, we all know there are times when that just isn’t possible: You eat at a restaurant, you have a homemade hamburger and fries at home, etc. Sometimes, I’d have a few little dishes of homemade baby food set aside but I always had some store bought organic at the ready when neither of these options were available. The trouble with store bought baby food is you have to choose. On one hand…

    I hope that you have a wonderful Easter!I wanted to share a little part of me with you. This is in fact a picture of my very first Easter which you can see was pretty much all about the chocolate.Well that and the baby chick which is missing from this photo.This is the year that I received a baby chick for Easter.  Not only did I become a murderer that day, apparently I became a glutton as well.From the looks of this photo I got over the fact that I killed that poor baby chick pretty easily.  Either that or I was simply using the chocolate to stuff my emotions Hmmm, this very well may be…

  • 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…

  • Love Diptyque candles? Try the thrifty version….

    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…

  • Dairy Pure Milk - Now With Easy Flip Cap!

    24 Mar 2014 | 3:43 pm
    I've tried lots of milks - but one of my favorites is Garelick Dairy Pure! This milk is always fresh and tastes great! And now it comes with a worry-free flip cap - so it's easy to open and you'll never lose or drop it. I know it sounds like a simple concept - a milk cap, but having a flip cap makes it just a little bit easier when you're trying to get out of the house in the morning. Just flip, pour and go! One of the reasons I like Dairy Pure is that it is hormone free. They also have a five point purity checklist to make sure your milk is as fresh and tasty as possible! Five Point Purity…

    Easter Sunday and the last days of Passover overlap this year. Settle in with family and watch moving images on the TV screen via a cheap streaming media player. College students can earn a degree for less and save up pennies when printing all those class papers. If self-sufficiency is your thing, consider raising your own chickens for eggs.

  • The Wealthy Cheapskate: 5 Luxury Yachts That Are A Total Steal

    17 Apr 2014 | 10:43 am
    Yachts have long been assumed to lie squarely in the opulent domain of the extraordinarily wealthy. The finest luxury yachts, clearly beyond the reach of the average Joe, cost upwards of hundreds of millions of dollars and are best imagined as luxury traveling homes rather than mere boats. But a deal is a bargain at any price point and we identified several sources for yachts on the cheap. (Spoiler alert: that depends on what you mean by "cheap.") For starters, the keys to such vessels can be handed over with a successful bid on a boat at auction. Liquidators are eager to unload pre-owned…
  • How to Get a College Degree for Less

    16 Apr 2014 | 10:12 am
    With the average cost of a four-year degree tipping past $90,000 for in-state public colleges and nearing $180,000 for private colleges, many would-be students are priced out. Earlier this year the Michigan Legislature introduced a novel plan that would offer college-bound students free tuition in exchange for handing over to the state up to 4 percent of their post-graduation income. For each year spent in school, program participants would be obligated for five years of payments. A similar idea is floating around more than 20 other states.

  • Is It Cheaper to Buy a Printer or Go to the Copy Shop?

    15 Apr 2014 | 12:03 pm
    Whether you have a project that needs to be printed or two tickets to the biggest show in town, access to a reliable printer is a must. But if you use a printer only occasionally, is it worth the space and the expense when you could head to an office supply store instead? To understand the economics behind this dilemma, we compared the cost of printing at home to the prices charged by two national chains. The frugal-wise choice was quickly apparent. Photo by sxc.hu/knox_x What's the Project? Printing costs primarily depend on the project, and to some extent on the type of printer you buy.

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

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…
  • Pantry Staples: Spices and Condiments for Creating any Dish you Crave Healthfully

    Van
    17 Apr 2014 | 7:44 am
    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…
  • What I Didn't Buy at The Flea Market: A Human Skull, Anyone? Yes Indeed.

    Van
    16 Apr 2014 | 5:32 am
    The day was appropriately sultry and grimy the first time I got to thoroughly examine a real human skull; who's flesh once covered these bones the world may never know. The flea market vendor claims to be a medical assistant and explained that the sell of human skulls is legal if they're used for medical use only. He bought the one above for $200 from his teacher and is attempting to sell it for more (likely $600ish) on eBay.The seller, in his cargo cut-off army camouflage pants, wife-beater, tats and thick south-eastern accent doesn't look anything like the picture of a medical assistant but…

    I'm still trying to resist much hunting while I work on everything else on my epic list but the weather is so deliciously warm again I'm finding any excuse to be outside for as long as possible...damn you flea markets! So overwhelming, so much good stuff to attempt to leave behind! This was one of my first big hauls in a while:First, a creepy clown! I'm a fan of them only for their kitsch and horror movie value.

    A boat docked in a tiny Mexican village. An American tourist complimented the Mexican fisherman on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took him to catch them."Not very long," answered the Mexican."But then, why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?" asked the American.The Mexican explained that his small catch was sufficient to meet his needs and those of his family.The American asked, "But what do you do with the rest of your time?""I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, and take a siesta with my wife. In the evenings, I go into the village to see my friends, have…

  • 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’m saving $20k in 2014 to pay for a wedding, save up for an emergency fund and (nearly) max out my Roth IRA.  Twice a month, I’ve set up automatic transfers from my main checking account to my CapitalOne 360 account that I use exclusively for my savings goals and it should be an easy process to automagically hit my lofty savings goals.  Operative words being “should be.” March was an off month.  Just because I blog about saving money and frugality does not make me perfect…or Lord knows, anywhere near it.  Yet despite my blunders, it proves the…

If you’re trying to save money on running, time needs to be on your side.  Wait to make purchases, sign up for races early to get the best rate, buy your gear off season and sign up for mailing lists to get the early bird rate.   The best way to utilize time to save money on running though is this- don’t go crazy with gear, wait to purchase things until you’re sure you…

    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…
  • Baby Cakes: Hosting A Gender Reveal Party

    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…

    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

    Paul
    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…

  • 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…

    18 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    Growing up in my family, the first rule of money was this:  We don’t talk about money.  All I ever knew is that we had more than enough.  While my parents did encourage me to work both around the house and at part-time jobs, there wasn’t a whole lot of guidance when it came to learning how to save or control my spending. As a result, my own journey to financial peace has been full of giant mistakes and more than a little heartache along the way.  I certainly don’t blame my parents—I take full responsibility for my own stupidity—but I can’t help but wonder if I would’ve made…

So. Much. Better. Fudgy, chocolatey, melt-in-your-mouth-and-make-you-want-to-cry better.

    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.

    President Obama claimed bragging rights to say 8 million signed up for the Affordable Care Act. This is a million people more than the administration said was needed to make Obamacare work. The White House may not have gotten all the young people it wanted, but it got a pretty good percentage. 35 percent of those who signed up through state federally- facilitated marketplaces are under 35 years old. Another 28 percent are 18 to 34. It was important to get young, healthy people to join the program to offset the cost of health insurance for older people who tend to have more medical problems.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) says a robocaller is out of the business for good, it hopes.  Joseph Turpel allegedly sold services to telemarketers and the FTC reached an agreement that puts him out of the robocall business and requires him to pay a $395,000 penalty. But it’s suspended because he can’t afford to pay it. The FTC says that Turpel headed an operation that sold robocall…
  • Refinancing Possible For Some Facing Foreclosure

    Barbara Nevins Taylor
    17 Apr 2014 | 6:03 am
    If you’re a homeowner struggling to make your mortgage payments, rising real estate prices may help you avoid foreclosure.  It’s possible that you may be eligible to refinance because your home increased in value in recent months. RealtyTrac’s  U.S. Home Equity & Underwater Report, for the first quarter of 2014,  shows that 9.1 million U.S. homes were seriously underwater. That means these homeowners owed at least 25 percent more than the value of their homes. And the description fits about 17 percent of all homes with mortgages. It sounds bad. But the number is down…
