  1. 10 Ways to Waste Money on Vacation

    by , 07-15-2010 at 05:38 PM ([email protected]'s Blog)
    A vacation can be a lot of fun.

    It can also be very expensive, although it does not have to be. There are many ways to cut costs on a vacation, but even the most conscientious cost cutters are sometimes guilty of throwing away money needlessly. It’s easy to waste money on vacation. You get in the vacation zone and you forget to watch your pennies. Either that or you get into the mindset of, “I’m on vacation, it doesn’t matter.” Then you come home to find large bills that could easily ...

    Ok, so plenty of people have written on the fundamental advantages of living debt-free. This post is a little different. I wanted to provide ten “lesser known” reasons for living debt free. I want to shed light on things that don’t really show up on the surface of analyzing leveraged living, but become evident as one begins to live freer and freer of debt. In no particular order:

I’ve tried all of these and found them to be at least as effective, if not more so, than commercially prepared products. ...
  4. 32 Reasons to Be Frugal Besides Saving Money

So what are some of the other reasons people pursue ...

    Television has given us a lot of relationships with characters who we can never meet. I remember characters from a lot of TV shows better than I am able to recall certain childhood friends and classmates and I am pretty sure that I still know the TV characters better than I have known a lot of people with whom I once interacted every day.
