How to Subscribe to the RSS Feed

First, what is RSS? It’s Really Simple Syndication and it allows you to receive the articles I write to the site without actually having to come here. You can read a lot of sites very quickly, without having to wait for them to load. Watch this video for a quick explanation:


On this site, the feed contains full articles, not summaries, so you get the whole thing as if you were actually at the site. Sometimes the images I put into the post that don’t appear entirely correctly and you will still have to visit to leave your comments (I hope you do), but RSS makes reading much quicker and easier. You can use your favorite RSS news aggregator (My favorite is Bloglines) or just have them piped into an email address.

To subscribe to the RSS feed, click on the HUGE orange icon below and Feedburner will walk you through the process:

Blog Feed By Email

If you want to get the feed sent directly to your email, Feedburner also offers an email digest service as well. Simply enter your email in the box below and click submit.

Twitter Too!

Twitter is a microblogging tool that lets you connect with people on a 140 character by 140 character basis. It’s a lot of fun and you should give it a try! I tend to post quick little 140 character ideas and posts to it from something crazy I saw walking around to giveaways and freebies to what I’m eating (ok, just kidding, I don’t twitter what I eat). It’s free, it’s fun, and everyone’s doing it. Please sign up and follow me @bargainr.

Here’s a brief video on Twitter:

Welcome (Back) Marketplace Money Listeners!

Welcome, welcome, all of the great listeners of Marketplace Money!

For those of you who haven’t heard the podcast, Lynnae of BeingFrugal.net, Steve of Brip Blap, and I had the pleasure of chatting once again with Tess Vigeland of Marketplace Money and it was a blast, yet again. The last time we chatted, it was about personal finance blogging, this time the topic was the financial chaos of these past few weeks and how things may be going forward. The entire show is available here and our discussion is here (clip recap).

If you only listen to our clip, you should consider listening to the whole radio show because there’s a piece where Stephen Hoffman interviews some children on the economic crisis. It’s absolutely adorable and priceless. They’re in Chicago and there’s one girl who says she’d resort to buying stuff in another country… like Detroit!

About Me & BFP

If, after my answers, you’re curious as to who I am, I discuss a little about myself and this site on the About page. I try to touch on all personal finance topics from banking to frugality, the stock market to saving for a home, and everything in between. If it deals with our money, how to save more of it, how to spend less of it (and still maintain a happy lifestyle), then chances are I’ll touch on it. If I don’t, tell me about it and I’ll try! And if you ever want to reach me, you can email me at the address in the upper right or use this handy contact form. Thanks!

Please Subscribe!

I hope that you enjoy your time here and consider subscribing to receive free updates of the site. You can do so with your favorite RSS reader or get posts piped directly to your email each day. I update at least twice daily (you’ll only get one email a day) and I don’t use the email for anything other than to send out these updates (oh, I giveaway stuff too and email subscribers are automatically entered). You can sign up by entering your email below and clicking the submit button.

Welcome Marketplace Money Listeners!

Welcome, welcome, all of the great listeners of Marketplace Money! A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of chatting with Tess Vigeland of Marketplace Money, Lynnae of BeingFrugal.net, and Steve of Brip Blap. After some production to make me sound smarter and more eloquent, it made the show for this weekend (and on quite an auspicious day no less) much to my wife’s delight!

About Me & BFP

In the interview, we all talked about why we started writing about personal finance and you can read more about me and this site in general in the About page.

One of the fun topics I write about is a series I call the Devil’s Advocate series. In this fun series I argue against conventional wisdom in the hopes that it will help illuminate why conventional wisdom is even conventional. I’ve tackled subjects like how you shouldn’t invest in the stock market or why you shouldn’t get married (my wife loved that one) and even why you shouldn’t do 0% balance transfer arbitrage offers. And, if you’re curious to read about our home buying journey, I’ve chronicled the whole homebuying process for the internets reading pleasure!

And that happens to be one of the topics we discussed on the show, whether borrowing money from credit cards and doing 0% balance transfers is worth it. I like to look at all the clever ideas and tricks people employ to get a little more out of their dollars (also the motivation behind starting the Festival of Frugality) and one of those techniques was balance transfer arbitrage. Considering the turmoil in the credit markets, no fee 0% offers are now nearly extinct and I’ve moved onto looking at just finding the best savings account to put my money in while the markets calm down (and I’ve picked up gardening!).

RSS Feed Update

I’d like to say hello to all the new readers of the site and a hearty thank you to those of you who have taken the time to leave advice, criticisms, requests, or just a plain old comment. For some of my posts, it’s the comments that give it any value whatsoever and for that I thank you. :)

For those of you who haven’t yet discovered Really Simple Syndication (RSS), I want to introduce you to it. If you use an aggregator, using RSS let’s you see the site quickly. The only downside is that a lot of the aggregators won’t let you leave comments so ultimately, coming to the site to comment on something will still be necessary. I’ve since decided to remove the full post syndication because I’ve found a lot of sites just republishing the feed and I don’t want to deal with tracking them down, having them give me credit, etc. I’m sorry to have to do this but until further notice I’m only posting summaries via the RSS feed.
