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!

One week until Black Friday (Fiscals)!

Can you feel the excitement??? All of that black ink just waiting to be put on the ledgers?? Nah, I can’t either. […]

Has Black Friday jumped the shark?

I mean, it’s still there and all, but does it really mean anything? And if it does mean something, what more can retailers do that they already haven’t? WalMart Stores, Radio Shack, The Apple Store, Best Buy, KMart, Kohl’s, Toys “R” Us, and Target have already had their Black Friday ads “leaked.”   I can’t really believe that these leaks were anything but completely planned: orchestrated to create […]

Here’s a great comeback when negotiating to buy a property

It’s no secret that there are federal tax credits available for many people who are looking to buy a home.  Both first-time and non-first-time homebuyers now can play the game. The people who are among most aware of the credits, of course, are people wanting to sell a home.  It’s not difficult at all to find For Sale signs also advertising the $8,000 tax credit, and, as I may find out soon, it wil […]

Where is that extra French hen?

(If you have a true love, then you have thirty of them from last Christmas! Most people really only need twenty-nine French hens.) Regifting this year is up.  Way up. […]

Friday Fiscals: Wii Fit Plus edition

My wife got Wii Fit Plus earlier this week and it makes you think on some of the games.  Nice build-on to Wii Fit.  Besides, what other game can I flap my arms and fly around in a giant bird suit? Here are some links of interest from my feed reader: Bible Money Matters comes through with a huge list of budgeting tools, finance software, and iPhone money applications. Tough Money Love wonders if L […]

Convenience credit card users are not perfect customers

This article on MSN Money misses a bit in the title: Banks punish perfect customers The article is another one on how credit card companies are hitting otherwise conscientious users with annual fees.  The users that are being targeted now are those who pay their bills on time and don’t carry a balance. These are not perfect customers as far as the bank is concerned.  They are close to the worst, a […]

Carnival of Debt Reduction time!

Welcome to this week’s Carnival of Debt Reduction! I’m very pleased that more of the submissions are on-topic. […]

Friday Fiscals: Oof-tah!

Here are some posts of interest from my feed reader: Generation X Finance shows how to get your cheap books and movies.
