Old Fashion Snow Cones On The Cheap

                       

Hey Family how are you? Remember when your grandparents use to make you snow treats for free. Well my grandfather use to do the same for me.  I am showing you in my video the way he did it.  He hated to send money on real ice cream so  when it snowed he was in free paradise. I have to admit  his snow treats didn't taste to bad. I missed his old cheapskate  butt. I learned a lot from him and I am thankful for it. Enjoy have a great Cheap Cheetah Day!

Snow Storms

 Hey Family, You ever realize how powerful the media is. They say that New York will have it's first major snow storm this weekend. So what do people do they run out and spend all this money on buying food and snow storm supplies. I know that when the grocery stores hear snow they have a big smile on their face because it means more money more money to them. I went to get some items today and it was crazy in my supermarket, The milk was almost gone as well as some other basic things. When we go into snow panic mode it makes us spend more then normal. So who really benefits from a snow storm the people with the supplies that's who. Have a Great Cheap Cheetah Day!

Saving Money Tips...


                      Hey Family here are some simple and quick saving money tips

1) Eat In During the Week and Celebrate on the Weekends: While this may sound obvious, you would be surprised how much money you would be able to save by cooking at home on the weeknights. This will free up some extra funds to go out with your friends on weekends.

2) Take the Metro at Times: There are many times on the way to a night out that you do not need a taxi. By eliminating your taxi on the way to your destination, you can at times cut your
transportation cost in half.

3) Consider Not Having a Car: Some cities actually do not need cars. With the popularity of Uber and metro/bus options, you would be surprised how much you would save by eliminating gas, insurance, and car payments from your budget. Not to mention, you would also be leaving a positive carbon footprint as well.

4) Join Loyalty Programs at Grocery Stores: Many grocery stores have coupon programs that allow you to save on what you are already spending. These coupons could be a great asset to your budget overall.

5) Sign Up for Airline Credit Cards: Many airlines have mileage cards that allow you to spend a certain amount on your normal expenses and get a free international flight. By doing this, you will have a free vacation that will not harm your budget.

6) Do Not Forget About Your Change: While coins can be annoying, you may be surprised that they can really add up to a lunch or a coffee with a friend.
7) Avoid Going Out for Coffee for Breakfast: If you turn your coffee habit into a social or afternoon tradition, you will be surprised at how much you can save in your bank account!

8) Rent Your Literature: With the abundance of digital reading devices, you will find that in the long term renting is a viable option that could save you an average of 20 USD to 30 USD per book.
9) Apply for Rewards Credit Cards: Many cards provide a percentage back on what you spend. Why not make a profit on what you already spend on your daily life, right?

10) When Going on Vacation, Buy in Bundles: Many travel sites offer all-inclusive deals including hotel, food, and flights. If you find one of these at the right moment, you may just find yourself unexpectedly in a five star resort for half the price!

Saving money is never a fun concept to consider; however, there are ways to save money and still live life to the fullest in the New Year.

The Millionaire (1955): "The Amy Moore Story"



     

Hey Family, How are you? I was watching The Millionaire a show  from  the 50's. It's about a man who's a billionaire and how he gives $1 million to strangers to see how they would act. It's almost like he uses people for his own personal pleasures. But anyway the show is good because it shows you  how people reacted  and what they do with their new found wealth.  The people who get the million dollars which is tax free  have to make some tough decisions. They have to choose being with the person they love or the money. They can not have both.
Now a day’s  I think  most people would choose the money over a relationship. Depending on what kind of relationship it was. Let's be real here if someone handed you a million dollars and told you to take the money over a person. You know good and darn well we would either dismiss that person in a heart beat or find a way to keep both. In the show the people choose their relationships over the money. Guess in 1955 where food was cheap, housing cheaper and salaries low. Guess the relationships were more important then the money. What do you think?

Storm Money




 Hey Cheap Cheetah Family. I heard today that New York will be having its first real snowstorm. With that I ran out to buy what I needed and then I thought about this. The expenses of a snowstorm can really dig into your pockets. You have to buy groceries, snow melt, boots, shovels, heavy coats, gloves. This all adds up to extra money that you might not have just to prepare for something that you know is coming but really don't want it. It cost me $50 bucks for this upcoming storm for snow melt and extra groceries. Last but not least if I do not shovel after the storm within a certain period of time I run the risk of getting a ticket from the City. Ain't that a kick in the head. Like the city is not getting enough money from homeowners already.
 So how much is it costing you for your winter storms?

Money Saving Tips



Hey Family here are some basic money tips from my E book Saving The Cheap Cheetah Way..

 Cancel internet, cellphones and pay TV. Instead use the public library, a regular home phone and watch regular major stations on free TV.

Ride a bike or walk whenever possible. If you live in a city, sell your car and use public transportation or walk/ride a bike.

Grow some of your own produce if you have access to a gardening plot or even if you have space for some containers. You can grow herbs, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, blueberries, etc....

Pick and freeze your own produce at local farms. Get yourself a chest freezer and when certain items go on sale, buy in bulk. Even things like shredded cheese, meat and yogurt can be bought on sale and frozen.

Use more fruits, veggies, rice and pasta as the bulk of your foods, and use the meats and more expensive foods as an accent, not as the main portion. It's healthier this way too.

Shop at second hand stores. There is NOTHING wrong with a lot of what you can find at a Salvation Army or Goodwill store. Most people are just too proud to do so. Same goes for household items, furniture, etc...

Keep Christmas and birthday gift-giving to a minimum. MOST people go WAYYYYY overboard and then year after year promise to "scale things back", but that rarely happens. No one really needs more than one or at the most two gifts if you really think about it.

Do not eat at restaurants, pretty much ever if you really want to be frugal. *I* personally love to do it, but it is a major extravagance when money is tight and the first thing we forego if we know we are going to be short on money.

For entertainment, choose free things, visit the beach, parks, library, window shop at malls, take up hiking, bird watching, etc.... there are plenty of truly entertaining things that are completely free....sunrises and sunsets for example :)

                                                     Enjoy and have a great Cheap Cheetah Day!

All Bets Are Off !!

                                                    Image result for powerball   

Good Morning Cheap Cheetah Family. If you not aware then I will tell you this weeks the Powerball jackpot is 1.3 Billion dollars. With that kind of money, I  call it stupid money to win all bets are off, meaning that Cheap Cheetah will not be a cheapskate for this one. I am spending about $25 to be in it. That's all of my monthly gambling allowance. But hey you never know right. Think of what you can do with this kinda money. just for fun.  You can pay off all your bills, buy a nice conservative home, invest in good growth stock companies, give to charity, give to family. You have a choice to work or not work again in life. I think the French Rivera has my name on it for a vacation that is.

This kinda money I will say is life changing money and even if you buy a $2 ticket , think about what would I do if I won even a piece of this kinda jackpot. That’s where the fun is in the dreaming of the things that you might want. Winning is a whole other story. If you don't believe me then look on youtube and see some of the lottery stories that they have.

All I can say is no matter how much money you win, inherit or come into from a smart investment or someone pays you back from a loan. Be smart with your money and stay true to your cheapskate/frugal living values and just enjoy life.

Frugal Failures

Good Morning Family. Today on The Cheap Cheetah Money Show we are talking about Frugal Failures. You know the kind I am talking about. It;s when you buy something you think is a bargain and it ends up costing you more money then you thought it would. Here are a few examples. If you think you can repair the washing machine  to save money and you make it worst then it was originally was. It will cost you more to get a repair man to fix  the original mistake and your mess up. If  you buy cheap shoes and think they are going to last you forever. But you find yourself buying new ones every 3-6 months. That's costing you more money then if your  would  have just purchased a decent pair in the first place. Let's talk frugal failures  right here www.blogtalkradio.com/cheap-cheetah.  I am sure you have a few.
