These are great sites. I also recently heard about this new site, ETSY.com store where you can sell your crafts as well. Whatever crafts you have. Well, there's a lot of fuzz about it. Will check out the sites on the list as well.

Scrambled eggs and wheat bread in the morning just make my day. We are also keeping an eye on seasoned fruits and vegetables so that we can have them cheaply. Healthy lifestyle and living means staying away from all the medical expenses..

Another trick is to start shopping as soon as the holiday ends. Don't wait until the malls are crowded with people, pushing and fighting over every item on the shelves. Save yourself from this stress.

If you want to take saving the planet bit further, you might want to check your current electricity provider about their power source and see if they are using renewable energy. If not, well, you might want to start using solar panels or wind turbines in your home. Just saying. :)

Hey, we do that too. We maximize the use of natural light in our home by opening the curtains. We also save energy by making sure that we remove the plug of any appliances not in use and never leaving them even in stand-by mode. Work wonders.

These are really good guidelines. Others think that they can do it on their own that’s why they fail. There's nothing wrong with seeking investment advice. If you have to no idea where to start, you should ask a professional opinion on where you can invest your money wisely.

I think there is no ballpark figure for that. Even the 'rule of the thumb' doesn't apply to everyone, which I think also everyone knows. You need to visualize what you want to do after you retire. You may want to avoid feeling useless when you no longer have an income, travel the world, or visit and rekindle the bonds with your long-lost friends and families. Have a target and plan and save for it.

Well, some people are anxious about their later years but they are not doing anything about it. I agree with you when you said that we all have to start somewhere. If people feel like they are sacrificing too much for retirement, they should know how to handle their money carefully. Take it a step at a time until they have adjusted to taking a percentage from their salary and keep it at the bank.

As soon as you start working, start your retirement planning. It's good to dream and have a goal but you also need to be realistic about it. List down a list of what you want to do after you retire, more like a bucket list. And also remember that to fully enjoy your retirement, you must be free from debt.

It's reasonable that some people are skeptical about the 401(k). I hear some people say that it’s the government’s way of tricking us into paying our taxes. But are they really? It’s our job after all to pay our taxes. If you don’t understand how the plan works, read more about it.

What other people fail to see is that moving off the grid is a choice; for whatever reason we might never understand. These ideas here are good and I might as well suggest this to someone I know going through this stage of his life. He may not need my help but I can at least support him.

I’m suddenly craving for turkey and pecan pie. Yum! The key is in the planning. Make the most of what you already have at home. Don’t purchase new ones and use those utensils/decorations that you’ve been keeping for a special occasion because Thanksgiving is a special occasion. It’s that time of the year when you are all gathered and catch up with each other.

If you try to keep up with the tech-trends, you will end up broke. They upgrade too fast and they don't come in a very cheap price tag as well. So you need to maintain your laptop always, and if it's still serving its purpose, there's no need to upgrade yet.

The internet is such a lurky place. You can't spot fraud immediately so whatever transactions you do online, do your research thoroughly. Find out about a certain store through other third party sites. Yes, Yelp.com is a good place to start.

What a close friend of mine did was, she planned ahead. Way way ahead. She's a collector of stationery papers and she used it for her invites. A year before her wedding, she started writing the invitations by hand. So not all of her guests received the same invite but it gave a personal touch.

Some people are just too lazy. They drive even though where they are going is just a couple of blocks away. Walk and enjoy the surroundings. You might enjoy the experience and it might provide opportunities you would not expect.

That is awesome; to volunteer for a charity on your birthday. You can ask your close friends to come with you. Instead of expecting for a gift, you are the one who is giving back. The experience is definitely worth more than what you will get. Not only on your birthday right? You should do so as often as you can.

I agree with you Jeremy. If you are enjoying what you have, it doesn’t need to be very costly. It's all about having the right mind-set. If you want to save, you can. Learn to handle and manage your finances well.

If you don't have a relative or friend in where you are going, you might want to book for hotels or accommodation ahead of time. They are usually cheaper and you get to choose where you can stay as well. If you are lucky enough, you might enjoy some free stuff as well.

And don't forget that the people shopping in these stores are on a massive scale as well. People faint from squeezing into the crowd. Who can blame them? Black Friday is one of the days each year where prices of merchandise drop really low.. particularly the gadgets.

When you have nothing else to do on your weekend, hand wash your clothes. Then, hang them to dry outside. Just look at it this way, you get to spend your rest day and you get to do some housework/exercise too. ;)
