"Be Centsable: How to Cut Your Household Budget in Half" Book Giveaway - 2 Winners, Ends 4/15


The Be CentsAble concept is a money saving method created by two women, Chrissy Pate and Kristin McKee.

As seen on Good Morning America and successfully used by families across the nation, the Be CentsAble method helps reduce everyday expenses without cutting out name brand items.

From the Authors Kristin & Chrissy :
"We started our company, Be CentsAble, with a single focus of helping families like our own save money on the most basic (and very costly) everyday necessity: groceries. As we explored and learned more and better ways to save, we realized there were so many opportunities we hadn't been taking advantage of simply because we didn't know they existed! We began searching for the best ways to cut other areas of our household budgets and challenged ourselves to cut costs in areas we didn't think were possible."

Can we afford to buy organic foods and not starve?
Can we cut our electric bill without melting in the summer?
Can "Dinner and a Movie" be affordable again?
Can we go to the beach or Disney world this year or will we have to settle for a local camping trip again?

The book, Be CentsAble: How to Cut Your Household Budget In Half is a complete guide to saving money on everyday expenses while keeping life simple and sane! You won't feel pressured to change your lifestyle or conform to strict do's and dont's. Chrissy and Kristin offer a step-by-step approach that's flexible to meet your family's available time and needs.

Here is a sample of the great tips and advice the book offers:

*Don't like coupons? No sweat!: Use "sales cycle" and other strategic shopping methods to save on food items without ever clipping a coupon!

*Cook once, eat twice (or more)! Save time and money with little effort.

*Get a FREE warehouse club membership! Earn back the cost of the membership with one simple purchase you are already making each week!

*Learn how to save hundreds on your electric bill each year in one easy afternoon!

*Save 50% or more on brand name clothing for the entire family!

H&R Block Premium Tax Software Giveaway *WINNER*

Congratulations to the winner of the H&R Block Premium Tax Software Giveaway!
(selected randomly at http://www.random.org/)

#5 - Lynn H.

* The winner will be contacted by a representative of H&R Block. Thanks to all who entered!

Last week I had the privilege of attending an H&R Block Freelancer webinar about doing taxes. Here are some Last Minute Tax Tips given by H&R Block:

  1. Life changes can mean tax savings. If you bought a home, got a paycheck, invested in higher education or are a parent, you could take advantage of several tax incentives for your 2009 filing
  2. It's not too late to impact your taxes by April 15. There are three things you can do now to impact your 2009 return: you can contribute to an IRA, health savings account or buy a home
  3. Filing an extension is not an extension to pay. If you file an extension, you have until Oct. 15 to submit a completed tax return. But to avoid failure-to-pay penalties, taxpayers should estimate their bill and send at least 90 percent of what they owe with the extension by the April 15 filing deadline
  4. Don't overlook key deductions. Taxpayers might not realize they can deduct certain medical expenses, job search expenses, charitable donations and state and local taxes
  5. Taxes are complicated, but there's help! With nearly 300 new tax law changes this year, taxpayers may need help figuring out whether they're getting all the credits and deductions they're due.
