  • I loved the articles about saving $1 a day, and why some people should rent. Because saving money is great, and everybody should be trying to do it if they are able to. I know that I try to save as much as possible, as I am saving up for a house at the moment – however after reading the article about renting, I am now thinking that perhaps I will want to do something like that instead, as it could make a little more sense to me.

  • A lot of the tips listed under the 17 tips was stuff I already do. The times I do treat myself to a coffee though I always order a “Triple Triple” a large is $2.05. I rarely do this but its my divine small treat. At home I am the one who uses most of the milk so our milk last about 5 days before the expiration date most of the time.I also found buying the store brand or generic of items is a lot cheaper than store brand. I have found that generic items don’t get coupons it seems but I will use coupons on name brand items if I need them and if they are cheaper than generic.

  • I love the resources that you’re citing in all of these. Thank you for compiling these comprehensive lists. It’s much easier to share your blog than try and explain to people how they should be saving. I’m definitely passing these along.
