Last time I reviewed Upromise, MyPoints and Creation Rewards – cash back sites that I used quite frequently in the past. I still occasionally use them, but there are a few others which I like more. There are BigCrumbs, Ebates and MrRebates. Read the rest of this entry »

What to Buy for the Man Who Has Everything

Jun-20-2017 By Frugal 101

Probably every one of us have a friend or an acquaintance from “the man who has everything” category. Getting a gift for such a person could be a real pain. I remember how stuck I felt when our millionaire – acquaintance invited us for his housewarming party. What in the world are you supposed to give to a guy who drives a Lexus and just bought a five-million dollar home? Certainly not a $25 gift-card from Wal-Mart. Read the rest of this entry »

As if college tuition isn’t high enough, those “evil” professors make you buy textbooks. These textbooks usually cost a hundred bucks or more, so for full-time students who are talking 5 classes, books cost more than $500.

The most effective way to save money on textbooks, according to my ex-classmates, was not buying them at all. studentAmazingly, they somehow passed the classes and got more than D’s for them. Since I have always been a nerd, I didn’t want to do that. I didn’t want to pay several hundred bucks for books either, so I found other ways to save. Read the rest of this entry »

Make Your Own Yogurt

Apr-4-2017 By Frugal 101

Last week I wrote about a must-have item in our home – a bread maker. The bread maker was the first item that I actually insisted on buying (Usually I would protest when my husband wants to buy any innovations). The yogurt maker was the second and so far the last kitchen appliance that I bought. It was only about $20 and it was worth every penny. It saves us plenty of money and the yogurt comes out delicious (and healthy!) Read the rest of this entry »

If you are a procrastinator and think about gifts a few hours before the holiday, this post on quick and cheap gift ideas should be very useful for you.

I have to admit – I am one of these nerds, who thinks of gifts 6 months before the actual holiday and prepares them for at least 3 months prior. My husband is the complete opposite. He usually plans to go to the store the day before the holiday (if he doesn’t forget about it that is) and due to the “irony of fate” something will always happen on his shopping day, so he will end up not going at all. He feels bad about it, because he knows that gift giving is a very important part of my culture, but he just can’t himself. He is the biggest procrastinator when it comes to holidays and presents.

Organic Food on a Budget. Part 2

May-20-2016 By Frugal 101

Part 1

6.    Look for generic organic foods at the supermarkets and grocery stores. For example, Wegmans food store has their own brand of organic juices, which are 2-3 dollars cheaper per bottle than big organic brands.

7.    Don’t overeat. Foreigners are usually shocked by the portions Americans eat. When I came here I couldn’t believe the sizes of portions at restaurants and the amount of food people throw away. Read the rest of this entry »

One of my favorite things about online shopping is Cash back sites. All the ones I use are free to join, easy to use, absolutely safe and you don’t have to do any extra effort to get some cash back. All you have to do is click through links to your favorite stores through a cash back site before you shop there. And that’s it. All your purchases will automatically credit to your account and then sent to your PayPal if you have one. If not, some cash back sites will send you a check. Read the rest of this entry »
