Once A Month Cooking

By Mrs. Crystal Paine

As one of the oldest children in a family of nine, I know that cooking for a crowd can almost be a full-time job. Once-a-month-cooking has been a lifesaver for our family. In the beginning though, when we first heard of cooking 30 meals in one day, it sounded rather impossible. It was not until we had tried it, though, that we found it is not only possible, but it can even be quite simple and fun!

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 »

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 »

Saving Money with Coupons

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 »

How NOT to Get Ripped Off at the Grocery Store

By Brian Vaszily

No matter how much you trim your budget, one expense that's sure to remain is food. But how much you spend on groceries each month is not fixed, and can vary by 15-20 percent or more. So because the grocery stores consider it their job to get you to spend more money, it is your job to keep your wits about you to avoid getting ripped off (especially on those grocery trips when you just wanted a gallon of milk, and left with five bags full of impulse buys).
