  1. Extra Income

    by , 01-12-2009 at 05:59 PM (Frugal Lifestyle? Can I Keep Up With Myself)
    As of this week I am getting my hours at work cut, to around 3 days a week from 5 days. I am glad I have turned frugal so I don't need to freak out about this, it’s perfectly fine.

    I sell on eBay and it does well, I always have stock and shouldn't run out for a while. I worked out that to make up for what I am losing at work I will have to sell at least £9 worth of stock a day or about £60 a week. So far since the beginning of last week I have made £195 plus I have £40 in my PayPal ...

  3. How Being Anti-Social Saves Me Money

    My wife and I are extreme homebodies. I work at home and have worked at home for the past decade. My wife left a successful law practice almost ten years ago to stay at home and be a full time mom and wife. My boys and I would definitely agree that the past decade with my wife at home has been great and I am pretty sure that my wife is usually happy that I am always at home (and I know when I need to hide and give her space if I suspect she wishes I worked in an office)

  4. When Invitations Become Money Grabs

    by , 01-05-2009 at 01:01 PM ([email protected]'s Blog)
    In the last year, I’ve noticed a trend among the invitations I’ve been receiving in my mailbox: Rather than being simple invitations to celebrations, they are becoming thinly disguised money grabs.

I’ve been invited to a “going away to college shower” right on the heels of the high school graduation party where I gave the graduate a check that I assumed would be used for college expenses. I’ve been invited to a Sweet ...

    You would really love to put aside some savings for a rainy day, but that rainy day is now. It seems like every penny earned is spent before it hits the bank. Saving money is becoming harder for a lot of folks. Some people are so strapped that they have never been able to save a dime.
    Not so long ago, I was a single parent, I often worked two jobs and still had to go couch-diving at the end of the month to find change to buy a gallon of milk. Every penny counted. It was a big deal to save ...
