Being frugal is different than being cheap. Frugality takes some strategy – it means you spend money in a smart way, not necessarily the least expensive way. You use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. You save money when possible, and stretch the same money as far as possible. By using some of these strategies, you can make frugal work for you, too: Use it ...

My Toastmasters speaking group meets once a week for a few hours. I love my group, and I look forward to our meetings not only as a social break, but also as a way to practice and expand my speaking abilities. But there is one small thing that makes me cringe every time I go. We are offered water – in plastic or styrofoam throwaway glasses. It might seem insignificant ...

Cash Crone is delighted to share this adorable winter mermaid costume, created by Arizona artist Auriel Elmore. Auriel specializes in unique costumes made from thrifted or low-cost materials. “I started making my own costumes long before I had my own kids – all because my mom made my costumes my whole life. I think she’d rather throw a sheet on me every year and call me a ghost than buy ...

I was busy tossing out mailers and junk mail earlier this week when one caught my eye. Could it be? It was a postcard from a local organic market – it stated that there were opening for their CSA (community supported/shared agriculture) delivery service in my area. One of the things I have been looking for since I landed in Ontario is a farmer’s market network, so I wasted no ...

Yesterday I went to the grocery and noticed the big boxes full of orange pumpkins, waiting to be chosen by children as their special Halloween pumpkins. It is a thoughtful choice. Whether the pumpkin is in a store container, or still languishing in the field, each must be viewed from all sides, inspected for warts and bruises, imagined as a gruesome, smiling ogre that will greet other children at the ...

C is for Cookie The incredible, edible cookie! The month of October is dedicated to this favorite homemade sweet treat. “There is a very strong emotional link for so many people which is why cookies are a comfort food,” says Brette Sember, author of Cookie: A Love Story: Fun Facts, Delicious Stories, Fascinating History, Tasty Recipes, and More About Our Most Beloved Treat.  “They are a true American food – the ...

My parents were older by the time I came along. They both grew up during the Depression, so they learned how to save money by doing without. Experience as parents gave them more insight. I have now raised my own children and have more adventures in my memory that I could ever share – and I don’t want to share some of it. But every generation has knowledge and truths ...

I work at home. That statement has many layers of meaning. I own my own communications business which includes writing, voice work and speaking. From idea to creation to bookkeeping, I’m responsible. I set the alarm in the morning, start working as soon as I have poured my first cup of coffee (I turn on the computer on my way to the kitchen), take breaks and lunch hours as if ...

You want to be in a better financial place, so you downloaded that awesome budget template from your favorite debt-freedom site. One evening, you carefully listed all your expenses (ouch) and every dime of your income (it all matters). It may or may not have balanced to that magic zero. Every coin has a job to do – you have allowed for saving, entertainment, and yearly expenditures. You feel good! ...

Shave and Save Money On the road to financial freedom, it  is pretty common to start looking at ways to shave money from expenses. But frugality is already a part of my life. I told you, my parents lived through the Depression and definitely imprinted the “use it up, wear it out, make it do , or do without” philosophy on their children. But I will share some ways to stretch ...
