Resolve to Save Money in 2005!

Are you starting to work on your taxes? Be sure to read this article, 10 big deductions too many people miss. January is a month of resolutions and some resolve to lose weight. But there are many scams out there, with diet products, read this article, 10 fat warnings about diet products to save yourself some cash.

Is 2005 the year you resolve to lead a more frugal lifestyle? Then you need some guidance! I highly recommend the following books:

TheComplete Cheapskate: How to Get Out of Debt, Stay Out, and Break Free from Money Worries Forever, $9.71

The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness, $16.49

Mary Hunt's Debt-Proof Living, $12.74.

One budget tip I just read recently that has really helped my family is to save all the gift cards you receive. I have a 3 ring binder, with baseball card pages and I store them in there. When my family wants to eat out or buy something not in our budget, we just have to get out a gift card! It's really helped us stick with our budget and not feel deprived!

Do you have a Giant Eagle in your area? If so, today is the last day to take advantage of their 10 for $10 sale, plus receive $2 coupons at the register, see the ad.
