How much do you pay to banks each month? Take a closer look!

I am curious, do you know the exactly how much money you are paying in interest and bank fees each month? I ask because recently I've been particularly worried about this one credit card account I have. It was literally the first card I got when I decided to try reestablishing myself credit wise. This means I had to pay an annual fee for the card and a pretty high interest rate. It was something I felt was necessary though since nobody would extend credit to me otherwise. Well just the other day I got a notice from that credit card company about how the account terms are being changed. The annual fee is going up and so is the interest rate, big time. It's been five years since I accepted that car...

Old-Fashioned Know How- Do it yourself remedies part 2

Good lord! The people have spoken and apparently old-Fashioned Know How- Do it yourself remedies are a favorite among my readers and fellow stumblers. A few days ago I shared a microwave cleaner I discovered and I also shared a home made recipe for spackle or wall hole patch and the comments/ hits went through the roof! It's surprising to me that others are also interested in my old-fashioned, simpler ways of doing things obsession and now I am not so embarrassed to share my tips.

So here are a few more of my favorite bits of...

Have you put up your holiday decorations yet?

Several of our neighbors have really gone all out with holiday decorations. I am amazed at how many people have started and completed putting up their holiday decorations, it is only November 27th! We haven't even retrieved our holiday decorations from the storage unit yet and some of our neighbors have all their decorations up and proudly gleaming at night. We are either really behind in decorating or other are just jumping the gun. We are planning to dig out our decorations this week and this weekend we will go cut down our own Christmas tree. We are slowly preparing to do the holiday decorations and we have been eying the energy efficient Christmas lights that are for sale in the stores. We plan to buy some, it's cool how many...

Get some energy effcient light bulbs for the holidays!!

I am pretty excited! I just found out that this winter we can switch our Christmas/ holiday lights and be more energy efficient! That is right; they have now come out with more energy efficient bulbs for those holiday light strands! This is another way to save money on that electric bill and help the environment! Holiday LED lights are much like the CFL bulbs everyone has been switching to. These make homes more energy efficient, they use less power, burn cooler and even last longer. CLF bulbs can help you save money on your electric bill and they are much better for our environment too! It’s a win-win situation we just have to get people to make the switch. So, here is my challenge to you… When you are unwrapping those...
