List of Vocational Schools

I am sure that many people are familiar with Wikipedia. It is one of the biggest sites for resource and articles on the web. Wikipedia is written collaboratively by volunteers from all around the world. Almost anything that is anything has a wiki. Now you can see the list of vocational schools that has been added there. Many reputable schools such as Nouveau Riche university is listed there. I am sure many will find this very informative.

A Frugal Mind

Is one that never stops trying to find deals. I swear wherever I go, I am always on the lookout to see what I can save and how I can get an awesome deal on items such as groceries. And I gotta tell ya, I love it when I come home and I know that I saved so much because I know that I did not have to spend so much and there is certain things that we can do without.

Holiday in Canada

One of the best things about saving money is when you can save so you can go on your dream vacation. Dialaflight is a leading independent UK travel company offering flights, hotels & travel ideas worldwide. The best part is that it is affordable! I would really love to see the best flights to Canada because to visit those snowy mountans and beaches is really a sight I am eager to take pictures of. And also that Canadians are some of the nicest people that you will ever meet. So one of the best places to book your flight and get more bang for your buck, is with dialaflight.

Budget Blues?

Still got the budget blues because you spend more than you make? Well keep track of your spendng even if its with an old fashion pen and paper method, it works trust me. In our society we spend more and wonder why we cant pay rent or simple stuff like food and etc. Stay on a budget no matter what. How much you make and what needs to be paid and how much to spend on groceries and make sure you put some money away even if it is not alot.

Cloth Diapers

Moms, let me tell you one of the bests ways to save money is by using cloth diapers. I know it is very convinient to use disposable diapers because washing more than you have to seems like more of a chore. Yes it is but think of how much you save by not buying expensive diapers.

Buying in Bulk

I love buying in bulk in places such as costco or sams club because you really do get more bang for buck. If you do not have places such as these in your area then price match your local supermarkets and see which has a better deal. You can search online for coupons and that should help.

Shopping At the Dollar Store

One of the places that are really starting to get popular these days is shopping at 99 cents stores. Many people, including myself have actually bought some good groceries at these stores. I am actually surprised at how much I can save and what I can actually buy for less than $20. Do you have a dollar store near you? If so, you should try shopping there, you would be surprised!

Plan Your Meals

One thing that I have really learned from being cutting costs is planning my meals. Each week I think of what my family like and make amenu of what I am going to make for the whole week, when you get good at it try to and so on. Once you have that, then you can try once a month cooking!!

Being Frugal and Debt free

Many people are opting for living frugally these days. Mainly because we have so much debt to get rid of and pay off, some just like the challenge of living and doing things frugally. To me, I see it as both. WHy spend more than you have to and throw money away? So before you think that you must have those new pair of shoes or eating take out, ask your self how much money are you throwing away by doing that.

Do you really need....

Here is something that I always do before I go out and get some groceries. First thing is to make a list of EVERYTHING that you have in your pantry, fridge, etc. The reason why I do this is because I can usually make some meal with what I have. I google what I have ingredient wise and a recipe will often come up with a simple dish with what I have on huh? Now this may or may not work depending on what you have at home, you probably may Have to go and get real food. But do not forget to try that first.
