Okay- here it is; An article for artists and creative types who need some tips and encouragement in the area of personal finance. http://grinnin1.hubpages.com/hub/saving … ng-coupons Once again, I see I published without checking the URL after I changed the title...but it will get you to my article.
What a interesting weekly topic! I totally wanted to write hub about it, thanks for giving the inspiration. I wrote a hub called "Family living on a budget - my experience" sharing what seems to work for my family in order to have a good quality of life and stay in the "green".
I love, love this idea. I cannot think of a better way to get my feeties wet than writing about frugal livin'. Tomorrow I shall write 2 hubs: my introduction and a hub about how excited I am when I know I'm being frugal!
I wrote this hub because I find that most articles on how to save money are unrealistic for normal people. I have some tips that most people can actually follow (at least a few) and show estimates of how much you can save.
This topic is right up my alley!!! Going to start tonight after my son's hockey practice. I just need to decide what idea I want to go with. I am thinking about my latest quest in the realm of Table Top Gardens.
Aha, but that's the thing- most Hubs are written for searchers, not HubPages members, and most readers of Hubs don't even know what HubPages is! There are many students searching out there, so writing for that audience is awesome, in my book. Great Hub and keep it up, Shanna11!
It kind of evolved into a politics piece as I woke up this morning and decided to brush up on Reaganomics. This article aims to inform people why they must practice Frugal Romance, what a Frugal Romantic is, how to have a positive outlook about being a Frugal Romantic, why this means you are perhaps a Democrat, and as a women, what this means for your love life and attitude in general.
Just noticed my spelling has gone south here! Practice should be practise. Women should be woman. What am I like? It took me four hours to write the hub above, maybe when I am exhausted I misspell? *sighs* Sorry hubbers and thanks for not railing on me.
cheers Beth - I feel better now The British vs everywhere spelling is a bit tricky. I just write British, unless I'm doing articles for Americans. Not sure about that one, maybe I should write American all the time.
I was also inspired to write the hub Frugal Romance Tips for Women because The Simpsons are doing their 500th episode and they did an awfully funny one on Reagan. Nancy and Ron moved into the street and were uncaring. Hmmm. WIll repost the link here, our thread is really long!
I absolutely love, love, love to make things. If you have skills and talent, don't hesitate to make your own handmade gifts during the year. Here are some frugal tips on making handmade gifts by doing what you already love to do.
I wrote a hub on small, easy steps to saving money. We all need to change our habits a bit at a time. This hub suggests that you pick a habit a week, or even a habit a month to change. Then it gives information about the changes that can be made to save money in 10 different steps.
Living in California all of my life, I don't plan on moving. When it comes to saving water, I have programmed myself to think "drought," and I make an effort not to waste water. Once you get into the habit of conserving water, it becomes automatic.
Had to get in on this week's topic since my 6 year old always tells me I am crazy about coupons! Wrote a hub that includes what I have learned over the past year and some tips and advice to start frugal coupon living. Here is the link:
Hey, you're crazy about coupons in a GOOD way! I'm really inspired by your Hub- which is gorgeous, by the way! Love the photos you've used- as well as the concrete advice and proof of how couponing has worked for you. This rocks!
Wrote a hub on simple budgeting for those who get a little queasy at the mere thought of putting a budget together. Right now it only includes hand-written budget photos, but I'll be adding spreadsheet screen shots with an alternative budget to provide more examples.
Oh man, I literally just published a money saving idea hub on Wednesday but had no idea it was a topic! I technically never made this hub through the "answer w/ a hub" option, so if it's supposed to count towards something it won't
Well anyhoo, here goes: My hub is meant for 20 somethings, but the ideas are universal.
k: Too funny! Love it! Since Valentine's Day, I simply cannot stop making things! Yes, one does see retirement differently. I don't even get upset in traffic. When someone cuts me off, I just smile and wave. I'm no hurry to get to my destination. I'll get there when I get there.
Thank you, Simone! I'd better know something about retirement. I've been at it for 10 years, and some of it wasn't all that peachy. It took me 7 years to adjust to the fact that I wasn't going back to work. DUH! Others are fortunate to jump right in and enjoy it. Of course, I'm the oddball on this one. What else is new? Ha!
I wrote about three wild green foods you can pick on a country walk and turn into wonderful meals, that will surely save on your family food bills - and make you feel well and happy because living frugally can mean a lot of fun. Loved writing it. Thanks for the inspiration.
