We did peek at the standings for who may become the new MEMBER OF THE MONTH. :) Remember, the winner will receive a $25 gift card of their choosing. We calculate the winner based upon the most engagement - helpful comments, likes on topics, and an overall friendly face in the community. Everyone is doing fantastic, keep up the great work!Read More...
DEON CHRISTIE so very true. I do really enjoy this site and learning new things.Read More...
That I did @Bonnie Squires . But I notice you keeping up...hehe. I think @Moore Income is a little too far ahead to catch...lol! As a tip, I find that posting topics and questions contribute nicely to points. Or rather the engagement on those posts.Read More...

We have two amazing newsletters you can sign up for: The Daily Digest and The Weekly Digest . The Daily contains all of the posts (and replies, if you would like them) from the day prior.

Go check out (and answer) our first survey!

Briana
Happy Friday Penny Hoarders! Today we're releasing a new survey feature and we've just asked our first question... it has to do with finding $100. Go on, check it out! And submit your response. This question was a little tricky for me, so I can't wait to see what all of you choose! There are a few places you can find it -- If you're on desktop, you can see it under Trending, and on the right hand side under the Welcome! On mobile, it will be under Trending! Stay tuned for more surveys to...Read More...
If I found 100.00 I would give 20.00 each to a child in need I see at grocery stores and they could do what they want with it I would love to see there face. I like to also put a note in a 5.00 bill if you could use this keep it if not put it for the next person I leave it like in a public restroom.Read More...
An interesting question indeed! One cannot, upon finding a $100 dollar bill on the ground, shout out, "Did anyone drop this?" Because everyone is going to say yes. So, bearing in mind I am debt free, live on 50% of my NET income and am completing my 6 month emergency fund with the remaining income...hmm...I would have to say I'd call the point of contact at my local homeless shelter and ask what they need the most for the folks they are housing and feeding. Then I would use that $100 I...Read More...

I’m looking for tips and comparison chart type of information for renters insurance on a budget of course. If there’s already topic like that I was unable to locate. I only found life, car, homeowners, pet and disabilityRead More...
Insurance would be an interesting topic. I have had insurance though work for the last 25 ish years, and have noticed that in the last 5, man, has it gone downhill! I'm paying a lot more for A LOT less and its frustrating. My clients use the Marketplace, and in NH, there are very few choices.Read More...

Make your profile stand out by updating your avatar!

Briana
While we love Abe, and those adorable Abe-inspired avatars, we also have a ton of other super fun avatars you can choose from for your profile! This is a great chance to showcase a bit of your personality in the community - are you more of a palm tree or sneaker? Do you want to rock out with red hair or maybe have glasses? How do you update your avatar (profile image) you may ask? In your profile settings, if you click "Update your Profile," scroll down to Profile picture/Avatar and choose...Read More...
