How i will rule Panera Bread with $1.40

March 31, 2008

Anyone who knows me will tell you that i’m a HUGE fan of Panera Bread. Their plethora of breakfast goodies are extremely tasty, and prices for the most part decent. There is one bone, however, i need to pick with them, and that’s the price of their cream cheese. It is sinfully price gouging, and plain and simply – a rip off. Although i’ve known […]

It’s Monday, and i’m off to VEGAS!!!

March 31, 2008

That’s right kiddies, the work is sending me to the City of Spending ;) And not only that, but word on the street is that we’ll be treated like rock stars when we’re there! it’s along story, but basically my boss got mistaken for a big roller a cple years back, and has since proved it to be true. haha… works for me! But while […]

I found treasure in my safe!

March 27, 2008

How cool is it that i even HAVE a safe?! ha ha…i bought one a cple years back when i was in splurge-mode after hearing horror stories of important documents going up in flames. I also always thought it was “cool” using them at hotel stays, and seeing rich people use them on T.V. The most awesomest being Scrooge McDuck’s of course, from Duck Tales. […]

Today is decicively a Spend Day :)

March 27, 2008

Although yesterday’s “Zero Spend Day” was a success, i have to admit it took wayyyy too much brain power :) But, mission accomplished and joy to all! i’d be lying if i said it wasn’t tough though. not that i expected it to be super easy, but even w/ it scribbled on my hand i still forgot. Almost-slip-up #1: A co-worker was running out to […]

Can today be a "Zero spend day" ?

March 26, 2008

I’ve flirted with the idea a couple times in the past, but i’ve never actually declared one myself. And i’m quite sure i’ve accomplished many of them in past w/out knowing it, but today I make it official. So Mrs. Chicky, i accept your mini-challenge and declare today my first “Zero Spend Day”. Do you hear that Mr. Frugal? Are you back in action? I […]

Where, oh where, is Mr. Frugal?

March 25, 2008

Every now and then Mr. Sexy (my alter-ego) comes out and forgets to bring along Mr. Frugal. Either that, or Mr. Frugal enjoys taking a day off…which is more likely the case here. I know this because all budgeting ideals flew out the window yesterday. It started out first thing in the morning on my routine walk to Starbucks. Before you say that’s mistake number […]

This guys rocks. And saves!

March 21, 2008

I came across the Change Race the other night and i just HAD to give it due credit. Although the word “Entertaining” defines it entirely, let me tell you a bit more about the genius behind it….or perhaps what the site’s about since i don’ t actually know the person behind it :) The concept is simple: We will being collecting any money that we […]

Sometimes you just have to get started…

March 21, 2008

Short and to the point: Just start. Whatever it is….a project, a goal, a book, whatever. I find that i psych my self out of things before i even start. IF i even start. there’s some background into why i’m posting this so quickly, but for now i’ll spare you the boredom ;) The point is, whatever it is you’d like to do right now, […]

Let’s dig around in our past.

March 21, 2008

My new obsession these days is Money Magazine, and the only thing holding me back from reading it every day is the fact that it only comes out once a month. Unlike some other $ mags out there, Money conjures up some fascinating (and pretty easy to read) articles that even us newbies can quickly pick up. I’m not saying i’m slow or suck at […]

I Pronounce Today "Random Day"

March 20, 2008

1) I saved $8.50 yesterday at California Tortilla! you know those stamps you always get at fast food places like subway and all? well, i rounded up all mine from the past year and a half from eating at C.T. and it turns out i had just enough for a scrumptious FREE chicken quesadilla. i guess it DOES indeed pay to collect those little guys.
