    Ahhh yes Hubbers, yet another wonderful week here on HubPages, which means that it's time for yet another super-exciting and awesomely-amazing HubMob topic to get us all fired up for Hubbing. This week I decided to pull out a topic that a lot of people are thinking about right now - Different ways to save money and find the best deals on stuff. So, whether you know ways to get a killer deal on finding a cheap MP3 player online or have some tips on getting more out of a tank of gas, this week's HubMob is focused on helping people save themselves some serious green.

    As always, feel free to write your Hub on any topic that relates to saving some people some cash and if you need any help coming up with a topic, just let us know - we're more than happy to help you out. smile

    To join this week's HubMob, please follow the steps below:

    1. Come up with an amazing idea to write your Hub on that has something to do with the topic of saving people money or finding great deals on stuff. Make the topic your own and feel free to have fun with it, research it or wing it. It's up to you on how you write your HubMob Hub.

    2. After you come up with your topic idea, click this link and answer the Request that I entered in for all of you HubMobsters. Feel free to use the tags that I suggested or add a few of your own.

    3. Write a an awesomely comprehensive Hub that completely covers your topic idea. Be sure to add an RSS Capsule that includes the RSS feed to the rest of this week's HubMob entries (Link: http://hubpages.com/request/8300/best?new&rss) and also add one of the HubMob images below to your Hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.

    5. Keep track of your Hub and keep us updated on any traffic that you're getting and post some screenshots if you end up HubMobbing a few search keyword over on Google.

      Saundra Gordon of S & T Creations originally made some suggestions on saving money with your wardrobe this year on a blog, but when the hub challenge came in, this HAD to be brushed off, polished up and become an entry!  Our blog typically revolves around jewelry, fashion, and handmade crafts, so the Fall Fashions were right down our alley!

      For all your shoppers out there, here is how you can re-use and re-do your wardrobe with very little money!  See how to combine items you might never have considered before.  Mix and match and look fantastic!

      WARNING:  We have never participated in a hub challenge before, so I hope this helps some of you come up with great ideas!

      Yeah, I figured that we all have our own tricks on saving some cash and who couldn't use that right now?

      I bet this guy could use some tips. smile

    Whoo hoo!! My first hub mob hub! I wrote about my adventures at the dollar store- where I am now hooked at shopping .Dollar stores rock! I have saved hundreds of dollars shopping there first. It's addicting!

    wannabwesternposted 8 years ago

    Dorsi - I love the dollar store, too! Though I think I get caught in the trap of spending too much there on junk that ultimately clutters my life. Still so many bargains for a disciplined shopper.

    My topic this week is more general advice. Jennifer pretty much has the saving money niche down to a science and I really wanted to do something a bit different, but this one might be too general. After I wrote it I realized that almost all of my little thoughts could have originated from Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life--and someone else has already covered that movie beautifully, too. Ahh, c'est la vie.

    Maybe I'll do another before the week's over. Here it is:

    My husband and I are avid readers. It is 10 miles from our home to the nearest bookstore, so I often order online, saving gas, time and money. I keep a list of books we want, then I place an order of $25.00 or more and get free shipping (and no gas money to go and purchase the book). The best savings is on the used books, which often look brand new. I just ordered a "like new" book for $0.01, plus $3.99 shipping, which equals $4.00.

      That's an interesting idea. Well worth a hub, IMO - you can talk about it all, give examples and tell us about some of the books you read through that.
