Get Beautiful on the Cheap

I love to wear makeup. Do I wear it everyday? Heck, no. But when I have the time to do my hair and makeup, I’m always glad that I made the effort. When it comes to stocking my cosmetics kit, it probably comes as no surprise that I always try to get beautiful on the cheap. Sure, I splurge on certain beauty products or services–such as having my hair professionally cut and colored–because I’ve found that when it comes to hair, you get what you pay for. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t find ways to save money...

Free Defensive Driving School for Teens

Free Defensive Driving School for Teens

We just spent $600 on driver’s education for our 16-year-old daughter. Part of the reason for spending that kind of cash was our $600 one-time investment would allow us to save $1,000 a year on car insurance with a new driver. Plus, our school district does not offer any kind of drivers ed. So taken together it’s up to the parents to shoulder the cost of driving school. Too bad I don’t still live in the Midwest, where we could have qualified for a free defensive driving school for teens.

Get Movie Tickets at a Discount

My frugal way of enjoying film entertainment is waiting for movies to become available On Demand via my cable company. Ideally, they are free, or at least heavily discounted from what I would pay in the theaters. However, sometimes I want to see a movie in a more traditional setting–as I did when I took my daughters to see “The Hunger Games” a few weeks ago. When I do go to the movies, I always try to see a showing earlier in the day, for matinee pricing. Plus, when purchasing tickets, I show my affinity card at the theater,...

Top 10 Tipping Situations

When you go out, do you always tip? In situations where I feel a tip is reasonable and customary, I always do. And unless something unusual happens, I usually give a 20 percent tip. Why? Having waitressed to make ends meet during college, I was stiffed on tips plenty of times. After that experience I swore that I would never do anything like that to someone whose livelihood relies on gratuities. Unfortunately, I seem to be the exception instead of the rule when it comes to tipping situations.
