Frugal Friday

This is one of the best articles I have ever read on How to Deal with Creditors. If you have debt and are having trouble paying your bills, this is some great advice.

Trent from The Simple Dollar goes on a Frugal Date with his wife! Sounds like a good time to me!

A guest post from a normal person about how they paid off $18500 in debt in a pretty short amount of time. It’s a good simple read from Get Rich Slowly!

Those necessary numbers…

I was reading one of my favorite blogs today and he referenced a web site called Wallet Garden. It was free so I thought I would check it out.

Basically what Wallet Garden does for you is store telephone numbers. You know those 1-800 numbers on the back of your credit and debit cards that you call if you lose your card? If you lose your card, do you have access to them, no matter where you are? I have always photocopied the back of my cards and kept a copy, but it never occured to me I might be out of town when my wallet was taken and those numbers would be safely tucked away in my desk at home.

This website is designed so that no matter where I am if my wallet is taken, I can just log on and find the phone numbers. Also, the web site does not ask for your actual credit card numbers, so you aren’t giving away anything personal.

So log on and check it out if you like. Otherwise maybe this is a reminder to write those numbers down somewhere safe! This could save you some time if something happens!

Rite Aid Trip and the Game of Life

So today during my lunch break I made a quick Rite Aid trip and am VERY pleased with my results, so I wanted to share!

I had two coupons I got out of the paper this past Sunday: Buy One Get One Free for Stayfree Maxi Pads and Buy One Get One Free Nivea Lip Care. (I actually had two of each of these because a friend and I swap coupons).

Each of these items is on sale at Rite Aid this week Buy One Get One Free.

So I grabbed 4 of each item and took them up to the counter. With my coupons, all 8 items were only 75 cents!

PLUS, Rite Aid is running a fun version of The Game of Life right now! You get a Life ticket every time you purchase something and extra ones when you purchase select items. This purchase netted me 5 tickets, so I just finished getting them all organized and am already close to winning a $20 Rite Aid gift card! This should be fun to keep track!

2010 Money Goals- How to Keep Them

Being frugal is all the rage right now. But the days are coming where spending and running up debt will be vogue again. So now is the time to get your finances in order, so when that day comes you know where you stand!

Pamela Yip of the Dallas Morning News wrote a great piece on “Money Lessons for the New Year.” I wanted to give you the high points of the article. As you begin spending in the new year, here are the things to think about:

1- Examine Your Goals. You need to have clear cut goals for your finances. It’s easier to save money if you have an end dollar amount in mind, or something you are saving it for. For me I want to put in an energy efficient sliding glass door in my living room. So I priced them, and now I have a dollar amount to work toward.

2- Set Up a Spending Plan. Give yourself an allowance of “fun money” every pay check. Most people recommend to take it out in cash and keep it in an envelope. Once you run out of cash, no more costly fun money until the next paycheck!

3- Pay Down Debt. Credit card debt is evil. And if you don’t think that now, wait until you see what happens in February of this year when the new legislation goes into effect. Issuers are raising interest rates, increasing fees and cutting credit limits in response to the new laws. Keep an eye out in the mail for info from your credit card company. Pay those cards down as quickly as possible.

4- Boost Your Savings. If you don’t have a savings account, try to get one set up. In addition if your employer will let you, set up an automatic draft to go into that savings account on the day you get paid. Even if you only set aside $1 a day for a year, you will have $365 at the end of the year, plus any interest you earn. That can help you breathe a little easier when you need a new tire or your electric bill turns out to be more than you thought!

5. Have an Emergency Plan. Jobs come and go. If your household ends up losing income, having a plan how to survive is pivotal.

6. Be Honest. This is a big one. If you have never sat down and really looked at your spending and savings, it’s time. Denial is not your friend when it comes to finances.

7. Focus on the Long Term. Most people who bailed out on their 401k would have seen some growth now. People who have continued to invest while the market was down are also very likely to have seen some growth. If you have the time, invest your money and forgot it. When you are 10 years away from retirement, then maybe look at some more conservative options.

Just my two cents, but it could end up being extremely profitable!
