Money in the bank is a collection of money-saving ideas from several different bloggers. If you have a post that will help others to keep more of their hard earned cash in their pockets or piggy banks, please join us.

The rules: There are hardly any rules. Use the piggy bank photo and link back to this post. Leave me a comment so that I can link your post here. Have fun and happy saving.

I'm new to this type of blogging forum and have a lot to learn. If you have a suggestion how we can make it better, tell.

I will leave the piggy up in the corner there and all you need to do to see all the MITB posts is click on the piggy and it will bring you here. I will continue to list all the participants here in this post. I think it will be good to keep them all together. Any thoughts? I'm new at this, remember?

Pseudo has combined her Friday Foto with her Money saving post. You get a two-fer and she has not only shown us how to save money but time by combining the two posts. Snaps for Pseudo!
Check out her lovely evening out with the hubs that was pocket friendly too.

I saved a lot of money today. I went to look at a MacBook but walked out without it. I just can't see paying 3 times what a great pc would cost and then having to replace a lot of my software. Instead I went to Sophora and bought all new makeup. Ugh.....But I still saved $$$$.

Sounds like a plan to me!

I would have posted something new for MITB today (since my OCD kicks in with something like this, and I posted last Friday so I must post my MITB every Friday), but I have a special post in the works for today. I've decided I'm...well, you'll just have to see when I get it up.

Once my mind is working again, I will have to give this a little more thought and perusal.

Lay out your paper towels after drying your hands and dry them..and use them again. isn't MY idea. My son who is in college and tight on money does it. I tried it but forget what it is, think it's trash and toss it. So..there ya go! :) Well, at least I contributed..or tried. Geez!
