And some more info:
- I always check out the 'frugal' sub-reddit which has lots of interesting and useful information (check the side bar on the page too for other great money saving links).
- From the frugal sub-reddit I saw the reminder that now is an excellent trash picking time as many college students are moving out of their dorms and apartments and heading back home for the summer. If you live in a college town, you might want to go to the dumpsters at your university and see what the kids have throw out (often lots of great stuff!).
- Have you checked your credit report lately? You can get your free credit reports from the major three reporting companies at www.annualcreditreport.com. (I was reminded of this because our lender just pulled our credit reports for our mortgage loan. They were fine but he noted that my credit score was low because I don't use credit cards. I told him that was just the way I wanted it. Hubby uses his cards on occasion and pays them off each month so his credit scores are better than mine but nothing can get me to go back to using credit!
- I saw this article and it gave me some interesting business ideas (I have decided that I need to set up some sort of business because I am bored silly doing nothing!).
Have a wonderful day!
