Saving Cash – Some Links to Help You With Your Shopping

Oops. We cut up a credit card that had a recurring charge. Good thing we hadn't cancelled the card altogether. So we cancelled this quarterly charge, which was for access to a site with information about various companies. Now we're paying off the card again in full. This will help us saving cash!

So I did some online shopping today. Bought 4 or 5 different gifts. Pondered buying a bunch of other ones, but decided that the price wasn't right. Searched for discounts on and shopped through when possible. Still have a lot of shopping to go.

So to that end, here are a few links for you to peruse. By the way, these are not links for money, just ones I like, which is how I do it. The links on the right are also ones I simply enjoy.

  1. From the Washington Post today, December 7, 2008 – The Color of Money - This is a listing of a year's worth of book club advice – with a theme of personal finance. Books range from suggestions for kids ages 8-12, to a collection of essays about issues such as debt, poverty, and wealth, and more. One or two of these might be good gift for someone you know, like your spouse.
  2. This was rated one of the "10 Silliest Videos We Wasted Time Watching This Year" in the Washington Post today. Watch this if you need to laugh, are a Star Wars Fan, have a three-year old, or any combination. My life revolves around Star Wars, so I found it quite entertaining.
  3. Especially for Kelly - – Kids clothes – nice stuff, a bit pricey, but has a section for clothes made in the USA (a friend is not buying anything from China and I thought I'd help her out with a link)
  4. – I really want one of their Flip Flop Mats. They also have a lot of other very cool stuff.

I have some other fun sites I want to share with you all, but I'll need to do that tomorrow.
