Kiplinger’s Personal Finance has a nice article called 20 Ways to Waste Your Money. It’s an article that shows some ways to spend your money a little more wisely. Some of the ideas have been discussed on this blog, but I found some other excellent points as well. One point that was new to me was about using the dollar store. I tend to avoid those stores, but it’s actually a good place to get greeting cards of 1/7 of the regular price. I found the article good for all economic times, not just recessions.
