A Random Weekly Roundup

by Shawanda Greene

This week, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart was on hiatus, so I’ve been desperate for some comic relief. Stephen Colbert filled the gap for a little while, but I really needed something else.

Today, for a brief moment, I found a laugh in A Comic That Got it Right by Jesse Michelsen at Personal Finance Firewall. You really should take a gander at this one. It highlights the best method I’ve found, hands down, for saving money.

If you read my blog with any degree of regularity, then you know one of my favorite past times is eating. Ever since I was a child, I’ve really enjoyed delicious food. Add that to the fact that I’m frugal, and it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone I’m a fan of cheap, tough meat. However, the deliciousness of a particular food isn’t measured solely by its taste, but texture as well. Check out  Tender Ways With Less-Tender Cuts of Meat at TipNut.com for ways to cook affordable cuts of beef.

Since I’m more of an ibuprofen and naproxen girl, I’ve often shunned aspirin as a pain relief option. It just doesn’t work that well, and one time I bought a bottle of it that smelled like pickles. That’s always stayed with it. Thanks to Double Agents Lurking in Your Home by Fabulously Broke at Fabulously Broke in the City, I’ve finally found a reason to clip those Bayer coupons that often result in free aspirin at CVS, Rite-Aid and the like.

And last, but not least, a shameless plug of a blog post at You Have More Than You Think. If you’ve wondered whether it ever makes financial sense to buy a new car, then you’ll want to read the rationale provided by few folks who’ve done it at 12 Personal Finance Bloggers Answer – New or Used Car? You’ll also find a number of people who rail against it.

Did you come across any interesting articles, web sites, tools, etc. this week? Let’s hear them.
