Links you’ll love, and what I’m up to lately

Photobucket

Oh, I love the autumn. It’s such a beautiful time of year! The leaves, the crisp air. It’s the perfect time for sweaters and soups. Once November hits, I’m going to start making batches of food to put in the freezer to eat after our little boy is born. Won’t be too much longer — I’m at 30 (and a half!) weeks!

Also coming up: I need to get the car serviced and ready for winter, and I need to seal our windows with plastic to help keep the cold out. We did this last year and I think it helped us save a ton of money on our electric bill. Our highest bill was $89 last February, with many winter months topping out in the $70s or lower.

Earlier this month, I discussed how I was going to try to go cash-only for October, just to try something new. We have a week left of this month, and I’m not out of money yet! I’ll give you an update soon.

Here’s some things you might enjoy:

Have a free cup of coffee (or other hot drink) by printing this coupon and taking it to Barnes and Noble. Expires Oct. 31. (hat tip to Northern Cheapskate).

I added a new widget to my left sidebar for You Data. It’s a new ad service that pays you to view ads. I’ve been a member for about two weeks, and I’ve received a small payment each Friday via PayPal. Maybe you can sign up with them to earn a little money to snowflake toward savings or debt. You can view links on the You Data main site, and if you view them from a widget on a blog (like mine) you can decide how much to keep and how much to share with the blogger. Interesting concept! We’ll see how this works out.

Here’s some links you might appreciate:

  2. On YouData: how much time are you spending on it, and how big are the payments? I’m wondering whether it’s worth it for me.

  3. Know what coupons I love? Free coupons!! Thanks!

  4. I love that photo! Everything is still so green around here. No fall foliage for us. :(

Hey! I'm Kacie, wife to Shane and mother to Jonathan (7), Vivienne (5) and Amelia (2) . I write about my family's finance: how we save money, improve our spending, and plan for the future.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.

I'm adopting a much slower-paced posting schedule, and treating this as a hobby blog now.

Keep in Touch!
