Interesting finance articles on Yahoo this morning

August 23rd, 2012 at 08:59 am

Usually I flip through the top headlines (which are almost all fluff stories) on Yahoo and read one or two. Today there were several that dealt with interesting finance-related topics, so I thought I'd share:

High-end clothing hoarder who filled a 4,000-square-foot home with clothes

Most Americans toss out 40% of the food they purchase

On the flip side, Americans dealing with hunger

And finally, the top 10 cities where housing prices are on the rise. Minneapolis is #2, thank gawd! Would love to be less underwater than we are now (or breaking even would be even better!).

    Ceejay there was a discussion about the food thing yesterday on news radio down here in Temecula. I had just walked in the door from Winco with a bunch of food. I proceeded to throw away blueberries that YD had bought that were starting to mold. I have been doing really well at home on this issue, not really planning meals per say, but seeing each day what needs to be used and going from there. There is a food bank right across from where kids apartments is and YD said people come in really nice cars all the time picking up food.

    It was an interesting discussion about needs and wants, types of food people buy, etc. We were very poor when I was a child, and some of the things we ate were boiled pinto beans and cornbread. I know in South Carolina the produce was terribly high, much cheaper here in Southern California. SIL and I were having a discussion about it last night. Geez this is turning into a blog entry. I will shut up now.

    I know the food waste bothered me for a long time. My ex was terrible about that. For the last few years I think I have cut it down to 5-10% (a guess, but I know I throw out very little now). By doing that and concentrating on quality foods my food expenses have gone up very little yet I am feeling much better.

    And now when the GF comes to visit I try to get her to use some food that has been sitting around (but still very good) to keep things from wasting (and save money), and to free up space.
