Getting Rich Slowly August 15, 2006

I’m a personal finance junkie. I love to learn about ways to save money and spend it wisely. I subscribe to magazines about personal finance and read books and blogs about it. My new favorite blog is called Get Rich Slowly. It has practical ways to save, invest, and spend (including one of my favorites, shopping at garage sales). A quote from the latest post, which, coincidentally, is what we are doing at the Court house:

We operate two freezers for food storage. My husband does all the grocery shopping because I positively cannot shop as cheap as he can. He watches sales like a hawk. His commute home from work takes him across town. He “coupons his way home” in the evening that way he never has to go out of his way to hit the sales.

Sure, occasionally I buy more than we need in the name of a “good deal”, but I think that is better than spending too much by not looking for good deals.

My goal is not to be penny wise and pound foolish. I want to be frugal, but not cheap.

What are some of your best saving/spending ideas?
