Just a quick post today to share some excellent articles and resources I’ve run across in recent days:
- How to Practice Hospitality on a Budget – Hosted on the marvelous MoneySavingMom.com, this is a gem of an article with super tips for blessing others while living on a budget.
- Tips for Reducing Electric Bills – Fantastic information from the great people at LivingonaDime.com. Lots of common-sense ideas, but you’ll also find some that make you say, “OH!” Great stuff.
- Promotional Codes – This is a fantastic one-stop shop for online coupons, discount codes, and more. I love to find discount codes I can use when placing an order online. This is by far the most user-friendly way to discover new coupons!
- Soda Stream – I admit it, I absolutely love sparkling water. It’s one of my big addictions. But it is SO pricey if you purchase it in the stores ($1.49-$1.99 a liter — ouch!). I was thrilled when I discovered this handy gadget that allows you to make your own sparkling water (and flavored drinks) at home for 20 cents per liter! I’ll be reviewing this nifty tool later on.

I just got an e-mail newsletter from Vision Forum with this wonderful package in it on sale (I ordered it!). I thought I had all the frugality and homesteading books out there, but these two were new to me, and I’ve not had a chance to see the videos yet, but I’ve heard rave reviews of them. Just click the banner below to read about the sale. You can get the books bundled, the videos bundled, or everything bundled together. There’s also a deal on the Entrepreneurial Boot Camp CDs. Check it out!
I just found out about an amazing rebate deal from the folks at Vision Forum. They carry more high-quality children’s toys, books, and videos than you can shake a stick at (make that gifts for the whole family–but the kid stuff is what I’ve drooled over these past few weeks!).
I thought I’d put myself on their email list, but I must have done it wrong, because I didn’t hear about this rebate deal until I stumbled across someone else’s blog last night and saw the banner. So I’m putting one up here for you. Click away! The rebates are good through December 11 and are really substantial. My husband’s grandfather sent us a check last week with explicit instructions to spend it only on Christmas gifts. Needless to say, after all the budget-crunching and scrimping I’d been doing, this was like giving me license to eat my heart out in a chocolate shop! Gotta admit I blew most of it at Vision Forum for the children. Enjoy!
