I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year.

Top 10 Blogs That Save You Money

With gas nearing $4 a gallon and the job market still in crisis, coupon sites and money-saving blogs are all the rage. Coupon sites have inspired shows like TLC's Extreme Couponing, that depicts couponers saving thousands of dollars in groceries each year. If you are living paycheck-to-paycheck or have had to downsize to being a single-income household, you know that every bit of savings is important. Websites and blogs can help save you money and teach you how to earn extra income on the side. With gas prices on the rise again, it especially pays to compare prices before you hit the stores.
Here are my top 25 picks of blogs that can save you money.

1. The Krazy Coupon Lady. The Krazy Coupon Lady as seen on Martha Stewart is a great site for extreme couponers as well as beginners. You'll find printable coupons, pricematching, financing tips and deal info for family, style, travel and home.

2. Fabulessly Frugal. At Fabulessly Frugal you'll find the usual printable coupons and tips, but you'll also find ways to save time though easy and inexpensive freezer meals and meal-swapping groups. As I always say, time is money!

3. Money Saving Mom. The Money Saving Mom keeps you updated on store deals, coupons, freebies and giveaways. You'll also find info on how to earn extra income online.

4. Stockpiling Moms. In addition to coupons and deals, at Stockpiling Moms you'll find weekly features on menu planning, stockpiling and more. Stockpiling Moms is also a great resource for gluten-free deals.

5. Organic Deals. Organic Deals brings you the latest info on organic and gluten-free deals both online and in grocery stores.

6. Bargain Babe. I like how Bargain Babe breaks down savings into categories like Health + Beauty, Famil, etc. She also has a whole section on seasonal/holiday savings.

7. Rich Single Momma. Rick Single Momma focuses on the financial needs of the single mom, things like child care, budgeting and making extra income frm home.

8. Budgets Are Sexy. The most important part of saving money is budgeting. Budgets Are Sexy covers credit, mortgages and more and offers budget templates. The best part is this budget blog is actually funny.

9. Get Rich Slowly. One of TIME magazine's top blogs of 2011, Get Rich Slowly focuses on savings, investing, and getting out of debt.

10. Lifehack. I'll never stop stressing "time is money", because it simply is. Whethere you're trying to start a business, work part-time on the side or simply have more time to do housework and yard work so you don't have to hire someone else to do it; learning to be efficient and productive is the best thing you can do when it comes to saving money and growing your income. At Lifehack you'll learn everything you need to know about being more efficient and learning how to manage your time, especially if you are an entreprenuer or freelance worker.
