88 tips for saving money, in a number of categories including personal finance, food, home, electronics, etc. You will likely not agree with a few them (okay, maybe a lot of them), but there are some good tidbits here.

Find other ways to stretch ground beef, other than the standard way of using breadcrumbs and egg.
