It's about time for another post here, don't you think?
So you have tech lying around that you have already replaced or you want to replace and you want to get some cash for it. I don't blame you! You can sell it to someone you know who is in the market, or maybe you list it on ebay. Then you have to deal with packaging and shipping. Not a huge issue for an iPad, but safety shipping a 27" Mac is another story. Have you heard of Apple's Trade Up program?

But seriously, a quick tip to get the last bits of product out of the tube is to just get out the old scissors. The size of the tube and product type determine the way you may cut it. You would be surprised how much extra product is inside these when you can’t really squeeze any out anymore!
Would you do this or do you think this is taking things to far?

If you're in the market for new glasses you have probably been rudely reminded how expensive glasses can be! If you're like me, you already used your insurance allowance on contact lenses, so you are replacing your glasses out of your own pocket or spending account.
This year I finally tried Zenni Optical. They advertise glasses as low as $6.95! You can really find decent frames for this price. Of course you can add on various lens qualities and other upgrades, but all in all this website is definitely a great way to get affordable prescription glasses and sunglasses. If you have an FSA or HSA account, you can use funds from those accounts at Zenni Optical with no problem. Just use your FSA debit card or HSA debit card during the check out process.
In case you are wondering, (I did) Glasses come in a blue plastic case with a cleaning cloth.

One way to save money is to be selective about brand loyalty. Marketing has reached a new level of captivation these days and it can be hard to cut through to why you actually keep buying a certain item. Some products really do exactly what you need them to, they are reliable, and they are worth the loyalty. Other times there may be good alternatives for a much better price or that have great sales/coupons/cashback offers that you could consider switching to or trying out. Simple, every day products like soaps and body washes, all purpose cleaners, etc regularly offer great sales so why stick with a $20 high end body wash when you can get a great one on sale for $2? If you love that body wash then stick with it, but being willing to try something new is a great way to save some cash for something else to splurge on.
To think about: What brands do you purchase over and over and which items are you willing to try various brands to save money? Feel free to share!
