NY Frugal Family Examiner makes news again!

First, it was the Deseret News of Salt Lake City, UT dubbing the NY Frugal Family Examiner "Russian Bear Mom" and turning to her for tips on saving money (read it, here), and now it's US News and World Report that writes:

Don't buy something just because it's on sale. If you don't need something, it's not a bargain. Instead of saving 50 percent when something's on sale, save 100 percent by not buying it at all. It's a lesson that Alina Adams, who writes about being frugal in New York City for, has instilled in her children, ages 14, 10 and 7.

"My grandfather used to say, 'When they have a 100 percent sale, call me,'" says Adams, who first encountered the concept of sales and having a choice in what to buy when she emigrated from the Soviet Union to the United States in the 1970s. Her children now accept the lesson.

Read the entire piece at the link. But, then again, as regular readers of the NY Frugal Family Examiner, you know you can get tips whenever you want them. We've got tactics for saving money on food, activities, entertainment and overall living in NYC. (What? There's more to living in NYC than food, activities and entertainment? Alright, there's also school. But the NY Gifted Education Examiner has got you covered here.)

Meanwhile, the Winter Olympics are about to start, and we've got a deal to celebrate. All Alina Adams Figure Skating Mystery novels are available on Amazon for $2.99 each. However, an edition featuring all five books in one is now also available - for only 9.99! And, because of the way Amazon's preview feature works, you should be able to get almost all of the first book, "Murder on Ice" for FREE! Don't believe me? Check it out, here! Try it yourself!
