Friday Wrap-Up: Furlough edition

Actually, I’m not furloughed today, but city employees are. That means that some of my friends and some of the services I frequent are closed for a four-day weekend to shave $1 million off our city budget. Enjoy the day off — and everyone else, enjoy the long weekend. Here are some great resources from around the Web this week:

Great deals & freebies this week

It’s one of those days already — the classic Monday. I have a pile of work assignments and a big ol’ dentist appointment for Mlle. Cheap this afternoon, but I also have spotted several great deals just begging to be shared. If you don’t already follow me on Twitter (@CheapLikeMe), you might not know that while I sometimes post deals here, I prefer to use posts to provide more info and sometimes just quickly tweet great deals on Twitter. If you’re interested in catching all of those, go over there and follow me, plus some of the great Twitterers out there.

Friday Wrap-Up: Spring Edition, cheap meals, frugal tips, onion bags and layoffs

After Colorado had a dry winter, then a very warm January and February, then a snowy March and April, I think we might be able to say it’s actually spring. This wrap-up comes to you after a day of 83-degree temperatures, squirrels marauding at the bird feeder and a cherry tree in bloom.

Wrap-up: Save money with DIY, organic coupons

Some good ideas around the Web this week for saving money and living naturally: Real Simple’s money-saving March Wise Bread wrote about some of the ideas in this month’s issue of Real Simple for saving money. Some of them don’t seem very frugal to me (there’s absolutely no way I would consider meat that costs $5.99 a pound a “bargain,” especially if it’s not even natural/organic), but others are worth a look.

15% off at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s today only

Word on the street is that as part of a class action settlement, TJ Maxx and Marshall’s stores are having a “customer appreciation day” today (Jan. 22, 2009) with 15% off all purchases. Personally, I’m a big fan of buying luxury sheets at these places, and that savings won’t be shabby — but our current sheets are getting that way after years of use.
