Need It, Want It, Gotta Have It

26 May

Yeah yeah, so I’m still thinking about the green. No, not weed Mom.


There are lots of great sites about money out there, especially ones on how to save it (and how to spend it, obvi). We try to read them often, especially the ones that are written really well and in a conversational tone, like Moneyville and Give Me Back My Five Bucks.

We’re even debating cutting out really non-important spending, like buying wine just to have with our dinners of Hamburger Helper and frozen Ristorante pizzas (when they’re on sale), just to save more money so we can hopefully buy a house sooner.

I recently signed up for an ING Direct account. Because He referred me, as an existing customer, we both got $25, just for signing it. That’s $50 between the two of us! Pretty awesome. (Note – if you need people to “refer” you to get an account, just ask us – it’s a free $25 for you if you do, and you don’t have to have a set amount of money to begin with to put in, nor does it charge you anything. And, you get free cheques for signing up) I was checking it out the other day, and I also noticed that if you have your pay from work direct deposited into that account, they’ll give you $100. Not bad, not bad at all.

Do you know of any other great money blogs, or tips that save you money?
