Mighty Bargain Hunter

I enjoy talking about saving money, finding deals, living frugally, making money, and investing, in addition to talking about current events in the financial world, online and offline. I’ve published articles at this domain name since 2004 and have been blogging since May, 2005.

I also started and manage the Carnival of Debt Reduction, a weekly blog carnival that highlights posts on getting out of debt. Personal debt reduction progress reports and posts about reducing debt are what this carnival is all about!

How free apps get you (and what you can do about it)

Free apps usually aren’t really free, as my daughter found out tonight … Our daughter got a first-hand lesson in how app studios make money. We downloaded a puzzle app to our daughter’s iPad last night.  It’s like a tangram puzzle but with everything made out of hexagons. […]
