Grocery Shopping

March 2, 2009

Sometimes,  you’ve got down so much on your spending that there’s nothing extraneous that you can still cut. And that’s when you have to cut from your typical bills – like grocery shopping. Here are some links to get you started.

Divorcing Money from Emotions

February 18, 2009

There’s an interesting article on The Frugal Duchess – Divorcing Money from Emotions. Women (at least from my own personal experience) have a tendency to spend money when they are depressed or down.  The post on the Frugal Duchess gives you tips for not spending money based on your emotions. For me, when I’m feeling depressed about something, I do the second best thing: online shopping (no, I haven’t curbed my addiction yet. I know, I should). I don’t buy anything online, and I get to look at gorgeous (and expensive) dresses and sigh longingly. Or, if you can spare a few pounds, go the old fashioned route and break out the emergency chocolate.

Some Links and News

February 7, 2009

Not much time today, so just a quickie post.

Some major department stores are being put on credit watch – Dillard’s Inc., Macy’s Inc., Neiman Marcus Group Inc., Nordstrom Inc., J.C. Penney Co., and Sears. Three others – Bon-Ton, Kohl’s, and Saks – have had their ratings changed from stable to negative. If you have an gift cards to these department stores, I would suggest you use them quickly, before you can’t anymore.

There’s a nice article on Getrichslowly about “Fashion on a budget.” It has some nice tips – not just on shopping but also on cleaning your closet, selling on eBay, stuff like that.

There’s a new money diaries post on iwillteachyoutoberich. Money diaries is basically a collection of diaries kept for a week where the person tracks all the expenses used. Some of them are quite interesting – as are the comments.

On a (really) unrelated note…Stephen King you are my hero! I hate Twilight too!

Have a good Saturday guys!
