The Money Jar Trap

Money JarMoney JarHundreds of thousands of people place their extra change into a jar or bank every night when they return home thinking that they are saving money. In reality, the dynamics of saving coins has changed over the last 10 years so that by placing your extra coins in a jar, you may actually be losing money. This is the new money jar trap.

The money jar has been a classic way for people to save money for generations. The concept was easy. After coming home for the day, you simply empty out your pockets and put the coins into a jar. When the jar was full, you take it to your local bank, have the coins counted and place the money into your savings account. While this sounds simple enough, the savings generated in the coin jar may not be worth their face value depending on how you redeem the coins.

The problem with the money jar game is that banks and other enterprises have figured out that they can charge you for taking your change. Read more »

Coupons Can Save You money If used correctly coupons can save you a lot of money on your grocery bill. It's quite easy to get hooked on clipping coupons and getting used to big savings. I first got hooked on coupon savings a few years ago, I saw a coupon for Tide and since it was the only detergent that my baby at the time was not allergic too and they had a sale at our local grocery store and I saved 50 cents, and I was hooked. Now I clip coupons and save an average of about 40% off of our food budget thru careful shopping and watching all the sales every week. I am not loyal to any particular brands, most of the time I just buy the no-name or store brand for most things since it is the least expensive, but a lot of the time a good sale and a few coupons and I get a great deal. I find most of my coupons in the paper, some thru free surveys I have filled out, a ton of free coupons that I print off the internet, and quite a few from friends who think I am off my rocker but indulge me anyway.:-) Read more »

Some of us have the stocking bug year around. We become nervous and agitated when our resources drop below a 6 month supply. We have the sudden urge to go running to the store, to replenish our dwindling supplies.

Then there are others of us- that see September approaching and realize in panic, that we might not make it thru the week let alone thru the winter!! Again we have the sudden urge to race to the grocery store, especially if we live in an area that gets a lot of winter weather. The problem with that is, without proper planning and careful buying, we defeat one of the purposes, of stocking, to save money. All is not lost though, with careful planning you can restock your pantry before the snow sets in or at least to be be ready for next winter. Read more »

The Art Of Asking

By Jeffrey Strain

One of the most potent saving tools you possess as a consumer is the ability to ask. This ability can easily save you thousands of dollars a year, yet the majority of people fail to use it. Most of us are used to walking into an establishment and handing over the amount of money indicated for the item or service we want to purchase. Some may spend hours researching the best deal by going through sale advertisements, comparing prices and doing other research, but few will try to change the price once they walk into the establishment itself. This is not so for those who are trained in the art of asking. Read more »
