This week, in our continuing quest to bring you the week's best in money-saving articles, we present six missives ranging from the truly informative to the head-scratchingly absurd. Submitted for your reading pleasure, there's a signpost up ahead.

I spent the week in Las Vegas at a conference and as such I was inspired to write this post. Las Vegas--aka "Sin City"--is world-renowned for its gambling, a past-time whose charms elude me. In my opinion, if I'm going to be dropping a wad of cash I want to see something leather in my closet to show for it. Spending money on slot machines, roulette wheels and the like is the equivalent of taking a match to your bankroll and setting it on fire.
Except when you do that, at least you'd enjoy some warmth...
And so I started thinking of other extreme money wasters for those with money to burn:Read More »
So this week, as promised, I am kicking off my list of top ten holiday gifts in the consumer electronics realm. The following represents the types of products that look to be hot sellers this holiday season. To make the list seem less broad, in some cases I have picked specific brands that will likely be at the top of everyone's wish lists in their respective categories.
I really tried to focus this list on those items that have been reduced in price and--coupled with some great Black Friday sales or Cyber Monday deals--could be scooped up at a tremendous bargain. After part two next week, if you agree, disagree or are left wondering why your most sought after item didn't make the cut, drop a comment and let's keep the discussion going until the last of the turkey is gone and the mistletoe starts to whither away.Read More »
In one of my previous posts, Take Me Out To The Bar Game, I wrote about how you can save money by going to a bar instead of watching a live sports game. Turns out people all over the country are taking that advice a step further and just watching the games from home.
Recently the Washington Post reported that NFL TV ratings have been rising due to the recent economic downturn. They're claiming that more people are watching games from home either because they want to get their money's worth out of the HDTV they bought or because watching games from home is free. Both theories make sense.Read More »
With Black Friday fast approaching and the holidays right around the corner I thought I'd highlight some great green gifts that might not be on your list, but would make a great edition, particularly for that hard to shop for fuddy duddy. These trendsetting green gadgets and gizmos aren't only environmentally conscious, but they'll also turn your friends green with envy.Read More »
The Holiday season is upon us. Time for mistletoe, eggnog, brisket and big savings. It's a great time to start stocking up on gifts for everyone in your life. I personally love giving and receiving bath products. They are always useful, they're not fattening, and--through the magic of gift sets and promo codes--they are a fabulous bargain.
There's a perfect gift of beauty for everyone on your list. Check it out!Read More »
