    The following is a post from our sponsor, SavingStar.

    I want to save money. I really do.

    But, in my recent commitment to do so, I’ve found that trying to save money is just like trying to lose weight. No one really wants to do it. We all want instant results. And, unfortunately, it only works if you let it.

    That being said, just about any plan works, as long as you follow it. You can cut your carbs or boost your protein, cut out fine dining or put more money into your savings every week. Whichever way you choose, you just have to commit and continue. It’s plain and simple. You’ll lose weight if you burn more calories than you consume. You’ll save money if you spend less money than you make!

    What if you went grocery shopping and all of the food on the shelves had expired beyond its sell-by date? Well, that could very well become a reality -- but on purpose. The former president of Trader Joe's is opening a chain of grocery stores that sell expired foods in May. The idea is to sell wholesome, healthy food that's just barely past its prime, but is still safe to eat. At a discount! And as a bonus, you're saving the Earth from a lot of waste as well. There, now does that sound a bit more palatable? Here's how it'll work.

    You guys, our favorite couple just broke up! Whole Foods is phasing out Chobani yogurt. I can't believe it. They were sooo cute together. What went wrong? Is it because of Chobani's not-officially-a-recall recall this summer? Or does Whole Foods want to (GASP) see other Greek yogurts? How could they! And where will you get your Chobani fix now?

    I've always weirdly admired those people (usually women) on TV who have mastered the art of using coupons. I mean, it's a little disturbing to see that they've re-purposed their garage into a mega-pantry that looks ready for the Zombie Apocalypse, but DUDE -- buying thousands of dollars worth of groceries for next to nothing? That's a skill I wish I could learn. I am terrible when it comes to spotting deals and normally accidentally walk out carrying a $40 loaf of bread or something.

    That's why I was doubly floored when I learned what this British teenager, Jordan Cox, did. This savvy, sweet kid mastered the art of extreme coupon shopping. But he didn't do it to stock up his own shelves -- Jordan was moved to hit the aisles, coupons in hand, after reading statistics about how many people go hungry on Christmas Day. He wanted to do whatever he could to help make that number a little smaller.

    Written by Stephanie Nelson, The Coupon Mom

    Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, which means it’s time to shop and prepare for the most important holiday meal of the year! And believe it or not, you can do it for less than $5 per person. Just follow my 5 tips ...

    1. Buy a Frozen Turkey. My store’s frozen turkey is 69 cents per pound, and the fresh turkey is $1.49 per pound. I’ll save $16 by buying a 20-pound frozen turkey and no one will be able to tell the difference. The key to a delicious turkey is baking it correctly, so watch an online video if you haven’t cooked one before. Be sure to buy your frozen turkey at least four days in advance to leave plenty of time for thawing.
