Fine Food Can Be Easy On The Personalized Money Clip

personalized money clip

Article Body:
Food is a necessity, but sadly, fine dining is a luxury, and from the name itself, a very fine one at that. It is a luxury afforded by the rich and famous, and one that you can have too. All it takes is a great appreciation of good food and excellent wine, and a bit of extra cash in your personalized money clip.

Worth the Wait

Everybody knows that good food, like good wine, takes time. You’ll know that you’re in a particularly good restaurant if it takes them awhile to prepare your meal. Food that takes time to prepare often comes out perfectly and is well worth the wait and anticipation. It will look perfect, smell perfect, and taste perfect, and it will be worth every penny in your personalized money clip.

Good Value for Money

Though most fine cuisines in the world can weigh heavily on your personalized money clip, there are some that are actually quite affordable. They’re so reasonably priced that you’ll barely notice the change in the contents of your personalized money clip.

Western and European cuisine are often expensive. Eating French foie gras, Italian pizza and pasta, or English steak and kidney pies can cause a large dent on your personalized money clip. This is due to the fact that cost of living is so much higher in these countries and most ingredients have to be exported; therefore, food is only cooked with the finest cuts of meat, the freshest and hardest to find vegetables, and imported spices. These are also known as posh food and are mostly patronized by well-to-do Westerners.

Eastern and Oriental cuisine, on the other hand, will barely make a difference in your personalized money clip. Street food such as Thailand’s pad thai, China’s dumplings, India’s curries, and Japan’s sushi are a mere few pennies, dollar wise. Ingredients are grown locally, even in backyards, so the inflation of prices for spices, meats, and vegetables are virtually unheard of.

Most Westerners would hesitate from digging in to this kind of food, and understandably so. These are mostly spicy and may not always be particularly clean. It takes a bit of getting used to, but once you’ve acquired the taste and your system has adjusted to the rich flavors and strong spices, you won’t be left wanting for anything else. Social standing is proving inconsequential in the pursuit of good food. It doesn’t matter how much money you have. You can enjoy fine dining regardless. Indeed, your personalized money clip does not have to suffer in pursuit of good food. It’s just a matter of knowing exactly where to look and digging in without hesitation.

Food for Thought

There’s nothing like a finely cooked meal or a richly prepared banquet to enhance the senses. Whether you have a fat personalized money clip or a thin one, you have every right to enjoy good food and to dine in the finest way possible. After all, good food should be a right and not a privilege.

Saving Money On Your Food Bill

Article Body:
The money you spend on groceries is an area of your home budget that you can really save some money on. In our situation we are a family of four and our budget is 5.00 per week. I would not say we are pinching pennies, and by no means are we being extravagant. We also live in the Pacific Northwest. Prices do vary somewhat according to where you live.

There are many of you out there spending twice this amount. Even in our situation which many of you may find on the average or low side we could easily tighten our belts and lower this bill by 30%. Yes, 30%

For the amount we spend, a 30% savings amounts to 50.00 a year. If you are spending twice the amount we are, that 30% savings can amount to a budget savings of almost 00.00 a year. That is a nice chunk of change for that big screen TV, or to pay down your debt, or whatever other means you want to use it for.

Before we get into some details I want to add that a key element to managing and reducing any aspect of your budget is having the right attitude. Also, you need to have some discipline and be able to stick to your guns. Set goals that are attainable.

Six quick tips to save money on your food budget

* Buy the store brand.
* Buy fruits and vegetables that are on sale.
* Read the flyers that in the newspaper, clip coupons.
* Shop more than one store.
* Buy less prepared foods.
* Go to the store after you have eaten.
* Avoid impulse buying on quick trips.
* Buy the store brand

Some folks are brand loyal. But, buying brand names can cost you a lot more money. The reality is that in a blind taste test most of us could not tell the difference between the store brand and the name brand. In some cases the only difference between the name brand and the store brand is the label they put on the can.

Read the flyers

In reading the Supermarket flyers there is one general theme I have noticed. Between two or three stores there are typically enough items on sale to make some substantial savings. It is typical that most of us do a “big shop” a week and then do 2-5 quick runs to the store during the week. Change this pattern. Instead, spend 10-15 minutes a week reading the flyers and planning your list to shop 2-3 stores. Most grocery stores are in the same general vicinity. Sure you might be adding about an hour to your shopping a week, but if that hour is worth saving a few thousand dollars on your food budget then it is well worth it!

Buying fresh fruits and vegetables on sale

We just spent .88 cents a pound for Fuji apples. They normally are .49 a pound. That’s a pretty good savings. We just love Fuji’s. We like a lot of other fruits and vegetables as well. My point here is that there is always going to be some fruits or vegetables that you like that are on sale. Buy what is on sale and you will save money.

Shop more than one store

Do this in conjunction with shopping the weekly flyers. Whether you do one big weekly shop at three stores or some other plan that works for you, a sure fire way to save money is to shop more than one store.

Buy less prepared foods

Most people buy prepared foods because they are convenient. They are also a lot more expensive. A bag of noodles, and a few cans of store brand cream of mushroom or chicken soup is a lot cheaper and goes a lot farther than a box of Hamburger Helper. And, it really does not take any more time to cook up you meal using the ingredients I named.

Shop on a full stomach

Nothing more really needs to be said about this.

So how do I pull all this off?

- Set a plan and stick to it

- Get the food money in cash for the week and put it in an envelope. This is your budget. When the money runs out you are done.

- Never (ever) go to the store without a list. Stick to the list!

- Treat yourself to an inpulse buy once or twice a month. Hold out money in your budget just for this. You will have something to look forward to.

Even with all of this good information some of you may be looking for a plan that is a bit more structured and disciplined. My spouse subscribes to a service called the “Grocery Game” (http://www.thegrocerygame.com/) which is essentially a formalized approach to everything I have discussed. Click here for their website. It will cost you a few bucks to join, but is well worth it as they provide you with information on sales that you will not find in the flyers. Note: this service is not available in every area.

Saving Money On Kitchenware: How To Buy Pre-owned Cookware And Not Get Ripped Off In The Process

People simply do not have a great deal of money to spend — even when it comes to making the purchase of cookware, kitchenware, and appliances for the home kitchen. Perhaps you are the head of a family that works very hard to make ends meet. In that regard, you likely have found yourself searching for ways in which you can save money on the basic necessities that you need for your home — including such items as cookware and kitchenware.

One way in which you can end up saving some money on cookware and kitchenware is through the purchase of pre-owned products and merchandise. With this in mind, there are some tips and pointers that you need to keep in mind to make certain that you do not get ripped off or burned on your purchase of pre-owned cookware and kitchenware.

In this day and age, a great resource for pre-owned merchandise is the Internet and World Wide Web. This holds true even if you are looking for cookware and kitchenware items that have been pre-owned. One type of website venue that you will want to visit in your online search for pre-owned cookware or kitchenware is a reputable auction site. Keep in mind that reference has been made to reputable Internet auction site.

In addition to the Internet, garage sales can be a perfect source for pre-owned cookware and kitchenware.

Save Money The Crock Pot Way

Article Body:
Saving money – is something we would all like to do. Whether you are struggling to manage day to day or earning a six figure salary, saving is something we all think about.

There is one thing we can all save on. The one thing we all do, every day, several times a day.

We all … Eat.

And food these days can be so expensive. It is quite easy to go to the grocers and spend your entire weeks pay just on food. Meat especially can put a hole in anyone’s budget.

After a long day at work, the last thing you want is to spend the rest of the day in the kitchen preparing dinner. So the quick option is often just to fry or grill up some steak. But this is expensive. And frying those cheaper cuts of meat – ugh!

You have heard the old saying ‘tough as old boots’.

They end up so tough, that even if you do manage to eat them; you will be lucky not to chip a tooth or dislocate a jaw; both of which cost even more.

How about if you could save money on your food bill and save hours in the kitchen at the same time?

Well the solution for you is . . . the Crock Pot.

It allows you to turn those cheap meat cuts into not only edible, but absolutely delicious meals. And, does it all, while you are at work.

This is not some new gimmicky thing you see in info-commercials on late night television. This is a real kitchen appliance that has been around since the early 1970’s.

It uses low heat and a slow cooking method which tenderizes the meat.

Just put the vegetables and meat in the pot in the morning on the way to work and come home to the delightful aroma of dinner ready in the evening.

Save money – the cheapest meat cuts are the best ones to use, they are full of flavor and appreciate the long cooking time.

Happy Crock Cooking

Smart dining save money

There are numerous excuses for not packing a lunch or staying home and preparing a meal. For many it is much more than just the consumption of a meal-dining out is a social event. Dining out is relaxing, different, satisfying, and socially engaging. One way to empty your bank account quickly is to dine out regularly.
Just like all social events, dining out constantly comes with a price. You might be shocked if you add up the amount of money you spend dining out regularly. I challenge you to conduct a personal experiment- we all can benefit from saving money. Keep track of your dining habits for two weeks. Everyone loves dining out, but for this experiment consider this compromise. Just eat out once or twice a week, and for the rest of your meals pack lunches and snacks. Prepare your morning and evening meals. You’ll be shocked to learn that you can prepare several meals and snacks for the price of one restaurant visit.
Just like every other life activity, balance is essential. The money saved from constantly dining out can really add up. Over thirty dollars a week can be saved easily. That’s over a hundred dollars a month in savings. Geez, what are you waiting for!
If you’re at all like me, I know nothing about cooking. So, what to do? Well, there are volumes of books, videos, and television shows that teach you how to make delicious, nutritious, economical meals. Not only will your pocket thank you, but your stomach will as well!
A trip to the market, and an extra twenty minutes in the kitchen will save you time and money in the long run, and isn’t that appealing to everyone?
