Great Budget Friendly Gifts

lori wulff
Most of the people today are tech savvy and easy is the key. FOR ALL. I make up "gifties" cosmetics, bath & body, haircare, and techie. Everyone loves to get a bunch of gifts, and a bunch of little helpers for daily living get used; there not gifts that get put in the closet. I suggest to stay safe and get what your people use.Read More...
This is really interesting! I've been thinking a lot lately about the whole gift giving concept. I think the "buy, buy, buy" mentality that comes along with the holidays has us all purchasing lavish gifts we *think* people will like versus. what people actually want/need. Curious what other budget-friendly gifts people are thinking to purchase this holiday season?Read More...

job search/resume/cover letter

slynneh 25
on the job hunt and all the specifics of what u should or should not do or include/not include gets confusing especially with so many "experts" differing on their opinions. i have finally got to the point of submitting resumes on sites like indeed, glass door etc but hit a wall about a cover letter...yes?no?how?do u include as part of uploaded resume d Or do you type out something in the space they provide in the additional information section? Should you even bother with a cover letter if...Read More...
It depends on the position. If it’s a manager position or above, then a cover letter is typically a good idea. Otherwise, it’s probably a waste of time unless the job ad specifically asks for one. If a cover letter is needed, keep it simple, but customize it and include information specific to the position you are applying for (i.e. your relevant experience or skills/attributes, your passion for the type of work, why you think you would be a good fit for the job, etc.).Read More...
Hmmm, a really good question! I would say it depends on the job vs position (career). If a simple task job like working at McDonalds, then, no, a cover letter would not be necessary. A basic resume is all that is needed with just the facts and dates pertaining to potential employment there. If going after a position/career then the potential employer would want to know if you are capable of the communication skills that would be of benefit to the company. The potential employee-through the...Read More...

Looking for Air miles flight hacks

Cali_Karley
Hello Penny Hoarders, I'm looking for some help with travel hacks, specifically air miles. My good friend is getting married in April 2021 and she lives in Georgia, I'm in California so I know the air fair is going to be pricey. (I'm also going to be in the wedding and know costs will be high.) I'm looking to get a credit card so I can save on my travel, in the long run I mostly use SouthWest air lines because of my location and was wondering if you had any advice on how their points work.Read More...
I know that my mom has a Southwest credit card and racks up lots of points on it by putting just about everything she can on the card. Southwest seems to be a good airline, but one of the things I don't like about them is their lack of assigned seating. You may also want to look at www.expedia.com , www.travelocity.com or cheapair.com . I'd also recommend playing with your dates and times to see where you can find the best rate. Watch out for credit card miles rewards programs, which often...Read More...

Actual value of possible collectible $1 bills

Forum: Make Money
Hi there, I am new here. I have several $1 bills saved up thinking/hoping they may have more value that their $1 face value. Does anyone know how to find out if what I think is a collectible $1 bill is and/or how to have a realistic worth to be able to potentially sell to a collector (EBay?)? I have many that are, what I think, matching some of the collectors' wants (i.e. low serial #, quad numbers etc...) Any input would be great! i would like to either use or sell as soon as possible!Read More...
I believe that the $1.00 bill will become obsolete just as the $2.00 bill did. I have been keeping several small stacks of this particular denomination in case it ever came down to it being taken out of circulation. I'm not sure how much the bill itself is valued at at this present time, but I believe it is far less than one dollar.Read More...
This is an interesting topic. I have not even begun to though about the value of a one dollar bill. I suppose that time will come when we no long use change and ones.Read More...
