Online Shopping Can Save You Money

 Bargain Hunting         No comments

The history of buying and selling dates back to the days of trade by barter where I can have the ability to give you clothes in exchange for a cow. Shopping does not exist during this time. And, obviously, not online shopping with the likes of Groupon and Coupon Sherpa like we have now. Over […]

Groupon: $10 for $20 Deal at Barnes & Noble

 Bargain Hunting         No comments

Not to be outdone by the LivingSocial.com $10 for $20 Amazon deal, Groupon has responded in kind. Only problem is, the traffic looks like it’s crashed Groupon’s website, so be prepared to wait or hit the refresh button 20 times (like I did). Click Image for More Information

Finally Time to Buy a Plasma HDTV?

Photo: Samsung 50-Inch 720p Plasma HDTV for $675 Being something of an anticonsumer and frugal living type of person, I’ve rejected the temptation of buying a large flat screen plasma HDTV since… well… they were introduced on the market. I’ve wanted one for years, since the early 2000s when they cost several thousand dollars, but […]

High Income Consumers Love those Groupons

Who uses Groupons? Rich people. That’s who! Okay, maybe not just rich people, but you may be surprised to learn that people who make major bank ($100k+ annual salary) are the heaviest users of daily groupon email alerts. Then again, it should be no surprise at all that young people who make a lot of […]

Giving ‘MagicJack’ a Honest Try

If you’ve been following the SF blog for a while, you’ll know that I’ve been on something of a cost cutting binge in order to excise as many cash flow leeches from my wallet as I possibly can. This has been accomplished with some very easy frugal lifestyle substitutions and a few lesser known money […]

Black Friday 2009 Spending Analysis: Foot Traffic Up, Consumerism Down

I found this 2009 Black Friday spending analysis chart very telling: Foot traffic for 2009 was up substantially. In 2009, shoppers spent ~14% less than 2008, and nearly equivalent to 2007 Black Friday consumption. Foot traffic is up 33% in just 5 years. I’m curious, though: Did Black Friday shoppers show up just for the […]

Could You Be an Economic Survivalist?

For the last decade, life was all about living to excess.  Not only did we spend all the money we made, we borrowed an additional 90 bucks only to pay back a $100 when the credit card bill came at the end of each month. And that was considered the norm! As far as most […]

Vulture Investing: Buying the Joneses Stuff at Half Price!

I had an interesting talk with a family member yesterday regarding her neighbors — the stereotypical Mr. & Mrs. Jones — who now find themselves in a personal finance bear trap. They’re trying to unload their 2 year old SUV because they can no longer keep up with the payments on three cars.  That’s right folks – they have three cars, all of […]

Every now and again, you stumble across one of those rare comic strips that compresses years of utter stupidity into ingenious simplicity.  At the same time, you hope it grabs your funny bone and gives it a good shake. I found one of those this week with good ol’ Dilbert. Now that the creative thinking […]
