Nutty Guys - $25 gift certificate for $10 today on Groupon

Have you discovered Groupon yet?  Each day cities around the US offer great deals on gift certificates, services and other items.  You can go on and "Buy" one of these deals but the deal only happens if enough people "Buy" it during the hours it is offered.  I selected the city closest to me to receive deals from by email but you can look at any US city.  As for the deal discussed below, it's under Oklahoma City but it is an internet deal so anyone can purchase it.  A lot of the deals are online so don't be upset if a city near you is not listed.

The deal for today under Oklahoma City....Get $25 in nuts, dried fruit, candy, seeds, etc. from NuttyGuys.com for just $10!

A Different Way to Look at Your Budget

I receive a daily email from a Daily Worth.  They provide helpful finance tips and information.  Most of the emails I don't get a lot out of but some are very informative and interesting.  The most recent talked about a new way of looking at budgeting for your household.  It's called "The Balanced Money Formula" (from the book, "All Your Worth" by Elizabeth Warren and Amelia Tyagi)  It says to allocate your after-tax money as follows...
  • Spend no more than 50% on NEEDS, such as housing, transportation, groceries, insurance, your basic wardrobe.  The key being to keep this budget being to keep spending NEEDS as low as possible.
  • Spend at least 20% on SAVINGS, which should include retirement and debt repayment.
  • The rest, around 30%, can be spent on WANTS like cable TV, dining out, concert ticket, extra shoes and clothes, supplies for hobbies, etc.
So keep this in mind the next time you are looking at your budget or trying to figure out how to better budget your money.  It seems like a fairly easy and straigtht forward plan to follow!
