Festival of Frugality #57 Round-up

I'm taking part in the Festival of Frugality #57 hosted over at FIRE Finance with my article about getting 2 free CDs and making $11. Here's a list of my top picks from this week's festival:

Penny Pinching asks 8 questions that will prevent impulse spending. These are important points to remember when .sticking to a budget I wrote some similar comments in an earlier article explaining my philosophy, and it sounds like we have much in common. Or at least more than me and say, these folks.

Personal Finance for Students and Fresh Grads gives us his take on Pragmatic Personal Finance Tips for College Students: Part 2. I do a lot of these, and I know it's saved me tons of money over the years. I especially like some of his advice on purchasing books. What is it? You'll have to read it to find out!

What? Did someone say food? Money$martLife shows us 10 ways to cut your restaurant bill big time. Speaking of food, can I say how happy I am that IHOP brought back their All You Can Eat Pancakes(even CNNMoney thinks that's big news)? At the same time, it makes me die a little inside to think about how that's not helping our ever expanding obesity epidemic. And it makes me die a little inside when I eat that many pancakes too.

My favorite post this week was from ProBargainHunter who shows us how to buy cheap airline tickets. For those of us who like to travel for whatever reason - to see significant other(s), family, earn better exchange rates, rack up frequent flyer miles, or to indulge in the fragrant flatulence of the stranger in the next seat - he lists some very useful tools and search engines that will help us get the cheapest flights. Now if only I could find a way to sneak my way into first class....

I apologize for the long delay in getting these up. The festival's been up for a couple of days now, but I've been busy being a student instead of a blogger. Ah, such is life.
