No Health Insurance? Save Money On Doctor Visits Using These New Health Clinics

As many of my long-time readers may remember, I no longer have health insurance. Since my divorce was finalized back in November, I have been unable to get private health insurance due to dealing with cancer back in 2008. Not a single insurance company will take me on as a customer, even though I am seemingly healthy today.


9 Tips to Maximize Free Shipping Codes & Coupons

The phrase “free shipping” is a siren song to many online shoppers. For whatever reason, a “free shipping “coupon that saves shoppers $6.99 can be more appealing than a “$10 discount.” There’s something about the word “free” that’s oh-so appealing. With a touch of know-how and research, however, you can take full advantage of the “free” in free shipping.

As free or nearly-free offers become more commonplace, it really pays to know your stuff. More than half of online merchants offered free shipping without conditions during the 2009 holiday season. Four out of five offered free-shipping deals with some conditions (i.e. a minimum purchase or for specific products only). That’s a lot of money saved. (Of course, the popularity of Free Shipping Day didn’t hurt.)


My New Favorite Site- Groupon: Collective Buying Power.

I found this site today and I wanted to share it with you guys as soon as possible. Groupon features an unbeatable deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in your city, and by promising businesses a minimum number of customers, they get discounts you otherwise would never get. To sign up you just enter your email address and your city, and each morning you get a new Groupon that you can buy into. If enough people buy the deal, then everyone gets it. If not enough people do, the deal is canceled. And if you refer a friend to the website and your friend makes their first purchase within 72 hours from the time they click on the referral link you send them, you get $10 worth of credits in your account. (No, I didn’t put my account referral in this post, as I just wanted to tell you guys about it) It’s a pretty simple premise, really, and I wonder why I didn’t think of it myself. Here is what the site looks like:


Talking About Groceries – My Two Week List & Cost.

I have talked before on this site about how much I spend on groceries, asked you how much you spent, and even advised you that cooking at home with “real” food you can save money. My monthly grocery bill is between $200-$250 for myself, and that’s buying organic fruit, vegetables, and meat at Whole Foods. I go out to eat about once a week or so, making my monthly total spent on food to be about $350, give or take. Just last Thursday I did my grocery shopping for the next 2 weeks and the total was $107.69, and in the interest of showing you guys what I bought with my $107 I figured I would list it here:
