We had a lot of great posts in this week’s Festival of Frugality. I was surprised at the number of submissions that were somehow related to food. So, grab a spoon and dig in!
Golbguru presents Motivation For Frugality – It Is Not Always About The Money posted at Money, Matter, and More Musings. This is a great article about what motivates you to be frugal. I enjoyed this article as a friendly reminder of why I’m saving now.< p/>
FMF presents Save Money on a Wedding by Renting a Wedding Cake posted at Free Money Finance. I love this piece of advice just because it’s so creative! (I don’t think I would ever actually do it though…)
Valerie S. Johnson presents 83 Things You Can Do With a Penny posted at SavingAdvice.com Blog. I really enjoyed this article. However, if you have enough pennies to do all 83 things, how ’bout you just wait until you get 17 more and then go to the bank and get a dollar?
Sagar Satapathy presents How To: Stop Receiving Credit Card Offers posted at Credit Card Lowdown. I really enjoyed the final piece of advice. I may actually try just mailing empty envelopes back… If nothing else it supports the postal service!
Dean presents Simple Way to Save a Ton of Money on Food – Create a Weekly Menu posted at Mr. Cheap Stuff Online Coupons. Great discussion of making a weekly menu as a way to save money on food.
mapgirl presents Stupid Wal-Mart Cake: or How to Have a Happy Cake! posted at Mapgirl’s Fiscal Challenge. I think half the fun of food is making it. I wholeheartedly agree with mapgirl here.
Brett McKay presents Freeganism: Shopping For Free From Your Local Dumpster posted at The Frugal Law Student. Dumpster diving for food? Not something I’ll start doing.
Kelly Bejelly presents A Girl Worth Saving: Hi Ho, It’s the savings life for me posted at A Girl Worth Saving. This post made me wish I lived near a “Grocery Outlet”.
An excellent discussion of looking at those around us and how they shape of view of money. The Happy Rock presents Friends Matter : Social Networks Shape Our Perception posted at The Happy Rock.
Boomie presents Start Small. Finish Big. posted at The Wastrel Show.
Linsey Knerl presents Living Without Air-Conditioning Can Save Big Bucks This Summer posted at WB Frugality. Living without the AC is a great way to save money, and if you can really save $150/month maybe it is worth it.
Melanie Rimmer presents How to Make a Lacewing Shelter. (Don’t know what one is? I didn’t until after I read the post.)
Frugal babe reminds us that it’s ok to Spend a Little Now and Then
Steve faber presents - How to Save a Bundle on Your Home Ownerâ€™s Insurance posted at Debt Free. I think the #6 piece of advice is the best one there is!
Sunny presents Dandelions and Daydreams: Good Things Come to those who Procrastinate posted at Dandelions and Daydreams. I’ve gotten a number of pieces of furniture for free on the street curbs of DC. It’s really quite amazing all of the stuff that’s out there.
TV Frugal Momma presents Watch TV shows on your computer for free posted at A Momma and the Boys Living on a Budget. During the school year if I missed Grey’s because of class I would always catch it later online. So I enjoyed this piece.
Thomas Humes presents Millionaire Mind – Think Like A Millionaire posted at Wealth Building World. This reads a little bit like “The Secret,” (well, I haven’t actually read the Secret, but it’s similar). Thinking like a millionaire is an interesting concept.
Allen Taylor presents Making Big Money By Looking At The Seasons Of Investment posted at Investing World Today. “Weather” or not you believe this piece of investment advice is up to you.
FitBuff presents FitBuff.com’s Total Mind and Body Fitness Blog Â» Blog Archive Â» How to Take Advantage of the Stock Market’s Summer Slump posted at FitBuff.com’s Total Mind and Body Fitness Blog. Another mention of “seasons” and the market. Strange, no?
KRG presents My State Failed High School Personal Finance Curriculum, How About Your State? posted at FILAM PERSONAL FINANCE. We were required to learn some personal finance in High School and Middle School. In fact, it was a millionaire who came in and spoke to our class about the power of investing at a young age who inspired me to buy mutual funds.
Are you looking for credit card information? Nowadays banks are issuing credit cards on very easy terms. Most of the banks are issuing visa card while some banks are issuing master card. Other than this type of loan many other bank loans are also being issued. Mostly the people doing online trading get these types of loans. Banks offer tax refunds on this type of loans for which the basic requirement is to prepare tax returns statements in accordance with the finance rules issued by the world bank. In the preparation of these statements bank holiday has to be excluded as the financial advisors can save maximum tax by making good tax planning.
