Welcome TIME Magazine Readers!
We are so excited to be mentioned in the April 13th, 2009 print issue of TIME magazine in the article "Inside the Cocoon" (you can see the accompanying abridged article with photos at TIME's website). Readers looking here for blog posts by myself or our other bloggers will find that we have a wide variety of personal finance, lifestyle, and green living articles geared towards helping readers achieve a higher level of financial independence and freedom. Here are some of our personal favorites relating to living well on less without leaving home (or “cocooning”, as it’s been recently called.)
Nothing is more exciting than a night out on the town, but we all know that it may be difficult to squeeze into the budget. Check out these blogger tips for enjoying a fun evening at home (many are free!)
Staying home more often may cause you to ponder your surroundings a bit more often. Luckily, home décor doesn’t have to gouge your pocketbook. These articles are sure to inspire a DIYer to get the job done – at a fraction of the cost.
We all have to eat! The recent TIME article focused on the benefits of bulk buying and batch-cooking, and many of our bloggers have their own style of eating well for less.
