8 Ways How to Spend your Money

Let's face it, in this economy, money is tight, and you need to save money wherever possible. You might think that the cost of buying a couple of $2 of tacos every other day doesn't add up, but the truth is, it does. Make it a priority to score yourself one deal a day, and you could end up saving yourself hundreds and even thousands of dollars each year.

1. Score online deals - That Bluetooth headset you really want is at your local electronics store for a hundred bucks? Forget about it. Scour the internet or head straight to an online deals site for a better price. Chances are, you'll find the same product at 50% of cost, or better.

2. Make your own coffee-  Yes, it's nice to pop out of the office for a coffee over the course of the day, but think about how many dollars you shed from your wallet each time. Invest in a flask, and take your own coffee to work in the morning. And harass your boss for a good coffee machine!

3. Bag your lunch - Of course you want that awesome sushi or Vietnamese egg noodles from around the corner every day. But make it a one-a-week treat only. Buy yourself a (well-priced) cookbook of easy lunch recipes, and you'll never be stuck for lunch ideas.

4. Avoid ATM fees - Withdrawing from ATMs not owned by your bank can be costly. You can easily pay $3 just to withdraw $20. Get extra cash out when you're at your bank's ATM so that you won't be caught without cash later.

5. Buy in bulk - You can score yourself one deal a day just buy buying in bulk. Get that gallon of milk rather than half gallon, or that larger size of shampoo or face wash, if you know you're going to need it eventually. When shopping, always check the price per ounce to get the best value for money.

6. Re-use your water bottles - You throw away so much money by buying a bottle of water each time you get thirsty. Get into the habit of refilling your water bottle with tap water. You'll save money, and help the environment, too!

7. Price check expensive items - If you need to buy something expensive like a coffee machine or vacuum cleaner, don't buy the first one you see in the store. Always do a price check at home first to establish average prices - and chances are, you'll score a better price on a deal website.

8. Buy books sensibly - It's tempting to buy that book you really want from Borders, but the fact is, you can probably get it on an online deals site like Amazon or in a used bookstore for far cheaper. And don't forget about that wonderful institution, the library, which costs nothing.

Incorporate just a few of these thrifty tactics into your everyday life, and you'll be scoring one deal a day and saving money in no time.

Autumnal Equinox ( Happy Autumn 2015 )

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Equinox is the time or date (twice each year) at which the sun crosses the celestial equator, when day and night are of equal length (about September 22 and March 20)

Earth Axis

The Autumnal equinox (or Southward equinox) is the moment when the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator, heading southward. Due to differences between the calendar year and the tropical year, the September equinox can occur at any time from the 21st to the 24th day of September.

At the equinox, the Sun rises directly in the east and sets directly in the west. Before the Southward equinox, the Sun rises and sets more and more to the north, and afterwards, it rises and sets more and more to the south.

It's time for a happy Autumn when nature spreads a pallet of colors. Reach out to your friends and loved ones with our warm Autumn wishes and share with them the bright cheer...

Baseball "Yankees" Legend Yogi Berra Passes Away at 90

September/23/2015 New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra died of natural causes Tuesday at age 90, the New York Times reports. He had been living in an assisted living facility in New Jersey.

Born Lawrence Peter Berra in St. Louis, Mo., Berra left school after the eighth grade and went on to play minor league baseball before serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II. After being passed over by the St. Louis Cardinals, he made his major league debut with the Yankees in 1946, hitting a home run in his first at-bat.

Yogi Berra

Throughout his debut (on Sept. 22, 1946.) 19-year professional career as a catcher, Berra was a three-time MVP of the American League and a 15-time All Star. He also holds the record for playing in more World Series games than any other major league player. He was also known for his witticisms, many of which became part of modern parlance, including "It ain't over 'til it's over." The cartoon character Yogi Bear was named after him.

After he retired in 1963, Berra coached and/or managed the Yankees, the New York Mets and the Houston Astros, winning World Series titles with both New York teams. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972, the same year his No. 8 was retired by the Yankees.

Goodbye Berra

Berra was fired as manager of the Yankees in 1984 and famously said he would never return to Yankee Stadium because of the way team owner George Steinbrenner handled his ouster. But Steinbrenner personally apologized to Berra in the late '90s, and through recent years, Berra was often seen at Yankees games and in the team's clubhouse.

In 1998, the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center opened on Montclair State University's campus in Upper Montclair, N.J.

Berra is survived by three sons. His wife, Carmen, died in 2014, shortly after they celebrated their 65th anniversary.
