Many of these sites were useful, some more than others. Most of it is common sense. We do most of our banking & bill pay online, so that's nothing new. Some of the sites are targeted more toward urban/suburban areas, and not so much rural/out-state places, so that had to be taken into account as well.
What was your favorite(s) site(s) and why?
Out of the ones listed, U of M Extension Gardening Information was one of my favorites. We're landscaping the front yard, and it's a great resource for me to figure out what the native plants are, and how to grow them. Another promising site is Mint.com, a site that lets a user see all his/her accounts in one place, although I'm not sure I'm really keen on the 'recommending savings' feature.
Did you find any new sites that you'd like to share?
Some of the sites that I use that would fit nicely into some of these categories are:
- Currentcodes.com: It has savings codes for many online retailers.
- Financial Calculators: Calculators for almost any financial need.
- Living Like No One Else: A free site that follows the precepts of Dave Ramsey.
- The Dollar Stretcher: Just a good all-around site.
What are your favorite money management/money saving/shopping tips?
Uh...subscribe to the 'ant' philosophy instead of the 'grasshopper' one?
I'm not sure I'm in any position to give advice, considering I still have some debt to pay off. :)
