Who doesn’t love a good amusement park! The rides, games, food, … excitement!  There are a lot of reasons why nearly 375 million of us go them every year! But what’s NOT fun – the prices!  Nearly every part of the amusement park experience has been designed to separate you from your money. Everything from the tickets themselves to where you’ll park, eat, and even sleep. Having taken my family to a number of ...

Your home is your castle. But just like a castle, you want there to be protection in case something goes wrong.  This is why you absolutely need to get home owners insurance. However, just like all other insurance products, the costs of home owners insurance can vary significantly from place to place.  Each one has different criteria and weighs the value of each element differently. Fortunately, to get the best price for home ...

Hiring an independent contractor for service around the house is something that every homeowner must do in their lifetime. For some of us, the bigger the house (or the less “handy” we are), we have to do this more often than we’d like to. Working with an independent contractor can be a little nerve-wracking because you’re effectively giving an element of control to someone else.  You become dependent on them, their schedule, ...

If there’s anything that can make a house look like a million bucks, its a well-groomed lawn. Landscaping has been the envy of home-owners since the days of castles.  Kings and queens would appoint entire teams of servants to tend to the gardens simply so they could be surrounded by its natural beauty. That’s why today high class establishments like golf courses and resorts will spend thousands on making sure every blade ...

If there’s anything that can make a house look like a million bucks, its a well-groomed lawn. Incredible-looking landscaping has been the envy of home-owners since the days of castles.  Kings and queens would appoint entire teams of servants to tend to the gardens simply so they could be surrounded by its natural beauty.

Every parent wants to know how to save money on groceries. Buying and providing food for our families has become one of the staples of our modern way of living. But it’s also become a very expensive part of our family budget. Grocery stores have made it all too convenient by becoming one-stop shops and having everything you need down each and every aisle. They’re also very good at using eye-popping ...

It was once said to me that a swimming pool is a giant hole in the ground where you throw away all your money.  Having owned two pools now in my lifetime, I can tell you: I couldn’t agree with that statement more! At times it can be very frustrating when it comes to how much money it costs to own and maintain a pool.  But then again it can also ...

Knowing how to save money on utilities has been one of the staples of money saving opportunities for years. Really!  Who hasn’t heard maxims from their grandparents about  how to save money such as “Shut that water off.  You’re just flushing water down the drain.” or “The toilet’s running again!” This is because just like back then, today the same thing is true: Everything we use costs money.  So reducing our waste means ...

Knowing how to shop for life insurance can make all the difference between paying exactly what you should be and getting completely ripped off! Believe me!  I was unfortunately doing the latter of those two options for a number of years ( … more on that story below …).  But eventually I wised up, did my research, and figured out how to get exactly what I needed for the right price. Now ...

If driving around from place to place is a part of your next travel plans, then you’ll definitely want to know how to get the best deal on a rental car. I’ve personally rented cars at several places all around the world, and found it to be a very easy-to-do process.  But, of course, not all service providers and prices are the same. There can be quite a bit variance from one ...
