Totally agree. You got to figure out first if this is for you. You also need to do a lot of research. Work with the people you can trust and you are comfortable with.

Online shopping can really be convenient especially if you are always on the go with your job. You can always request for actual photos and when you have the time, visit the location to take a close look at the car. Compare prices; always do this to get the best deal.

Don't underestimate "doorbusters" deals because they really bust doors. :D Yes, you can see campers outside the stores as early as 3am. Maybe they don’t sleep at all just to get there first? Who knows? I even wonder if it's amazing or, hmm shall we say, stupid.

These sites do not exist yet when I was in college and we have to buy a whole lot of them. What's even more frustrating is that you'll only use a few chapters of them. But glad that students now have this option to save on textbooks.

 @jeancox Very well said. These appliances tend to work harder and it uses up a lot of power. And when you decide to buy a new one, choose those with energy star mark. They consume energy-efficient, around 30% less power, than your regular home appliance.

There's nothing like spending some quality time with your family. But today's generation of children are easily distracted with their gadgets and toys. Get them involved with outdoor activities. Like what Janet said here; kayaking and maybe some picnic would do nicely. Plan ahead for your outdoor activities and get everyone in your family to participate. Leave those tablets and game consoles behind. Keep the cellphones though in case of emergency.

Look like some of the people here were alone during Valentine's day. Hopefully, they won't be this year. :)Candlelit dinner with a home-cooked meal sounds very cozy and romantic to me. We can spend it alone in our own home without being disturbed by some people. Then well go in the backyard and do some stargazing. Sounds like a good plan right? :)

There are a lot of free things that you can find on Facebook. I have to say that I was a bit skeptical about online shopping years ago but there are tons of coupons codes that you can use to get a discount. Even those 'free shipping' offers can help greatly. If you still prefer to shop in your local malls, there are printable coupons that you can use.

There's nothing wrong with buying used clothes. I do this as well. We are all tightening our belt with this economy. It is called being practical. But I also agree with Laura.

Why use the home heater if you can still bear it. We are used to feeling comfortable all the time that we turn it on whenever we feel a little cold. If you want to save, you need to sacrifice a little. And a little change of habit could go a long way.
