Thrifty Fun – Fun, advice and blogs

This entry comes as a courtesy of my Sis-In-Law (RM). Good work RM. Bet you never thought you’d be published at Dad’s Taxi! 🙂

Thrifty Fun is a pretty cool site which has some really nice featured articles and newsletters which you can subscribe to. The site is family oriented, so it seems to be a pretty good place for information and tips! Most of the focus of this site is related to the home and tips on how to solve household problems. Found that to be pretty useful.

It’s here that I found another link to an interesting My Frugal Life Blog site.The site offers some excellent advice, free newsletters, tips and so much more.  You can browse the various topics and much more.

What I liked best  was the disclaimer for the site. Now I gotta figure out how to do the same for Dad’s Taxi.

Take a look along the bottom of the page and you’ll find some interesting sites for budgeting, savings advice, couponing, ezines (newsletters), etc..

Overall, the site is really nice and deserves a detailed look.. enjoy..

PS. Thanks RM.

Bargainist and other sites – Deals and Coupons

As the resident cheapskate in my family, I’m always looking for the next great deal!

I haven’t had a chance to look at sites besides my normal haunts for deals, but today I found some that warrant your look and see. Each of the sites below offer RSS feeds that enable you to get daily deal feeds via your Yahoo or iGoogle home pages.  Of course each of the sites provide you with printable and on-line coupon codes so you can continue to load up your home with techie items that you absolutely, positively, think you need..

Bargainist is a site that not only shows you deals, coupons, and freebies, it also gives some good advice on how to save money. This is what differentiates this site from other sites that I’ve mentioned in previous posts.

My other favorite is slickdeals.  For the ease of use, this site continues to be my fav.

I’ve mentioned the sites below in prior posts, but I’m re-listing in summary form below. The sites below are ones in which I get daily feeds on my customized Yahoo and Google page respectively:

  1. Slick Deals
  2. Techbargains
  3. Woot
  4. XP Bargains
  5. Wisebread
  6. Dealhack

There are of course many other sites for coupons and  shopping, but any one of the above can do some serious damage to your credit card.  I’ve decided that my mantra continues to be:

“If it’s not a deal, I’m not buying!”… 🙂 I have a tendency to by technology stuff that I’ll never use.

If you know of other sites that readers might like, feel free to leave me a comment.

Money Savings Guide

Here’s a site that I liked. The layout was quite clean and it allowed me to read some excellent tips for saving money. What I liked about this site is that instead of just providing me with coupons or coupon codes, it provided me with articles that make me think!

Everyone wants to be reminded of common sense ideas for their family, kids, houseold, gas, banking and credit cards, and money saving reviews and ideas.

What I also liked was that there was a blog section where there were people wrote about various ways to save money. I noticed that the adverting was minimal. Didn’t see any pop-up ups, etc..

I thought the advice offered on saving money and spending wisely across everything for your life was well laid out and extremely usable.
