Let's take a little wisdom from our owl friend when it comes to saving money. Saving money is always on my mind, but sometimes it's hard to keep up especially when the whole concept can seem quite daunting.
Real Simple Magazine's March edition boasts "71 ways to spend smarter (and save a lot)", so naturally I was intrigued. So far, I've implemented the "dust of your library" suggestion. My local library has made some technological improvements since I went there as a child. Now I can check the availibility of a book, as well as put it on reserve. It's so convenient...and guess what...it's free!
Now, I think twice about pressing the "Add to Cart" button when I'm browsing online for books and dvds.
Real Simple also offers other online Money Tips if you want to check them out.
Do you have any money saving tips that have added some padding to your pocketbook?
