What the Cheapskate is Reading

We got stuck inside for most of the weekend because of an ice storm.  I’ve never been so happy to have a stocked pantry and freezer!

I suppose I could have use my time at home to actually clean the house, but instead I spent time online.   Here are a few of the interesting reads I found:

The holiday season brought a deluge of toys in our home.

Now that I have three boys in school, I am amazed at the amount of paper that comes home with them.  So I found some great tips in the post Organizing Resolutions: How to Organize School Work over at Ask Anna. I especially liked her idea for dealing with artwork.

If you have a school-aged child with special needs, Issues and Questions to Discuss When You Go To Your Next IEP Meeting at autism sucks is a must-read.  The author is from Australia, but the advice is good no matter where you live.

House plants can help create ambiance and act as natural air filters.  I’m a house plant killer, so I liked the idea of being able to find The Best Cheap Plants for Improving Indoor Air Quality at Wise Bread.  If I’m going to kill them anyway, I want my house plants to be affordable.

Trent at The Simple Dollar shares how The Alternative List can help you make positive purchase decisions.

And finally here’s a funny cartoon from Randy Glasbergen. Be sure to check out his other cartoons about budgeting, the economy and more.

Happy Reading!

Thanks for sharing this. Good thing when the ice storm came you have a stock pantry. It would be horrific not to have food during that time.
