  » Local Businesses


Look around your area for small towns that have a theater. First run shows can be had for $3-5 and the popcorn doesn't require you taking out a personal loan.

Buy Bulk Fresh Produce and Then Can or Freeze

  » Home & Garden


If strawberries or green beans are a deal in your area, buy in bulk and then can or freeze portions for later on in the year. This also works well with peeled onions if you don't use a lot at once but buy a bag instead of one. Just put in the freezer.

Watch ATM Fees

  » Business & Finance


If you want some cash and need to make a purchase anyway, get your cash at Walmart, Target or Lowe's. They don't charge an ATM fee and you can get groceries or pick up other items without having to stop by an ATM and get hit with an outrageous fee.

Try Lending Clubs for Investing

These clubs are springing up. I wouldn't invest a lot of money but right now its not hard to make a 10% ROI. Due diligence is necessary but this definitely beats 1% at the bank.

Coupons-Don't Leave Home Without Them

  » Food & Drink


When feeding kids in a hurry always keep some fast food coupons in the pocket behind the drivers seat. Make a game out of who can find the best deal. It saves money and keeping the coupons readily available makes all the difference in this economy.

Getting Kids Sleep Patterns Adjusted for Back to School

  » Family & Relationships


My bunch has a tendency sleep in during the summer. School will be starting soon so about two weeks before school starts, I make sure they are up at 6:30 am once again and get to bed at a decent time. It makes the first week of school more bearable.
