Our family dog was 6-years-old when he developed a heart condition that caused him to be hospitalized for three nights—to the tune of thousands of dollars—before we had to put him down.
When I first graduated from college I owned an adorable little bunny named Fiver who ended up getting sick and—$3,000 later—requiring surgery.
Who among us with pets hasn't had the occasional (incredibly expensive) emergency? Of course the two scenarios I mentioned above may have been slightly cheaper (although no less emotionally draining) had either my parents or myself had pet insurance for pets
So … is pet insurance worth the cost, then? If the two scenarios above are any indication, it would certainly seem like it is. While insurance of any kind is always a gamble (and most of it is a perfectly smart gamble), we decided to go right to the source—a veterinarian. We asked Dr. Oscar E. Chavez, DVM, MBA, Member of the American Academy of Veterinary Nutrition, for his thoughts on pet insurance and whether it's worth the cost.
Around spring time, you hear lots of people talk about gardening and almost every other magazine article offers up "how-tos". But true gardening aficionados look to fall to start their gardening in preparation for the spring.
I'm not much of a gardening person, but after much research I decided to follow those experienced folks in planning for fall gardening and enjoying the fruits of my present labor at a future date, most likely spring.
Unlike spending over $300 last spring trying to plant a small amount of flowers, this fall I got twice the amount for under $100. Let me tell you how I came under budget, got a custom look and will have long-lasting flowers that I won't have to consistently replace:
1. Skip big box retailers. Yes, they are convenient, but they also come in at twice the price or more. I researched different sites including Yelp and found a wonderful local nursery close to me that sold plants for wholesale prices. The quality was better and of course the price you can't beat.
Pets are fun to have as part of the family. However, sometimes you will find the cost of having pets can add up, so here are some great sites to check out to find some money-saving alternatives:
1. Use Pinterest to find ways to make your own pet food, make your own pet accessories, and even how to do CPR on your pets.
2. You can find great deals on sites like Craigslist and Ebay for pet accessories. Things like fish tanks can be quite expensive when you buy it new, so you may be able to score a great deal on a fish tank with accessories for less than the price of buying just a new fish tank.
When a company tries to pass a somewhat green product off as truly
eco-friendly, it's known as "greenwashing." Sometimes greenwashers
also advertise eco-friendly products for the sake of appearance, as
opposed to any actual earth-friendly motivation.
Here's how to tell when companies are more concerned
about looking green than actually being green:
Keep an eye out for obvious contradictions to an
otherwise earth-friendly message. One of the most obvious examples
is the Live H2O music festival. With three days of live
entertainment at more than 30 locations around the world, this
festival probably does meet its stated goal of promoting peace and
If you're like me and you are online more than 8 hours every day (even if I didn't work from home, I guarantee I'd spend half my life on this new-fangled contraption)...AND you have two cats who like to make beds out of your laptop's warm keyboard (or curled up against the vents or in my lap looking at the computer or sitting on top of the desktop unit...really, they're not picky), then you know how messy your work space can get sometimes. With pets, the usual dirt and dust, and even eating at your desk, your desktop can be a really messy place.
But I'm here to help. Well, okay, I'm not really going to do anything except point you in the direction of this week's wacky product, the Dust Extinguisher Mini Desktop Vacuum.
Unfortunately, more and more people in today's society are becoming
single parents. The reason for this could be due to the growing
divorce rate or perhaps the decreased rate of marriages in the
first place. According to the U.S. Census Bureau in November, 2009,
there are approximately 13.7 million single parents in the United
States today, and those parents are responsible for raising 21.8
million children (approximately 26% of children under 21 in the
Being a parent in today's world is expensive either way, but being
a single parent is beyond affordable! However, 13.7% of parents are
expected to do this in one way or another, everyday. As for myself,
I became a single parent of three children in 2006 after my
divorce. Is it possible? Yes, it's possible. I'm living proof one
can do it even in today's society, however, be prepared to make
