With the recession & all, it's all about cutting back. Luckily, I have teamed up with the TV which has had tons of helpful money saving tips lately.
Drastic times call for drastic measures. We will all have to axe everyday items, even the essentials, like the snuggie.
The snuggie fleece wearable blanket apparently saves you the hassles of using a regular blanket. I know that my life has almost been ruined several times by the inability of blankets to keep me warm. NO MORE! It doesn't fall off of you when you go to answer the phone. Finally, the secret that monks have known for ages. This reminds me of something....a sweater. The snuggie is even great for dorms. It also guarantees you that you will never, ever get asked out. EVER.
Walmart just told me that they just lowered their check cashing prices to only $3 a check. Apparently, this will save you $200 a year. First off, if you have that many checks that you need to cash during non banking hours, then my recession guide probably isn't for you. However, if you do have that many checks you need to cash, umm... go to Walmart.
One of the infomercial products you should probably look into is a little thing called the sham wow. Apparently, it can basically absorb a swimming pool. If you use it in place of paper towels it can save you $20 a month. I can only assume that these people are cashing their biweekly checks in Walmart in the middle of the night because they have a need for seventy five rolls of paper towels.
Sadly, you probably already missed out on Old Navy's "What you should've gotten for Christmas Sale" (That was their actual tag line. It sounds like something I made up, but not even my imagination is that greedy.) Remind me again why we are in a recession?
