Real World Roundup: Grocery Shopping Secrets June 1st, 2011
I don’t care how prepared you think you are, living on your own is no walk in the park. If balancing your school-life (or brand new career) and social life isn’t hard enough, add to that all the mundane tasks that keep your world afloat (laundry, grocery shopping, remembering to buy gas before your car stops in an intersection or something). Oh, yeah–and you have to manage your finances on top of that.
I’ve been on my own for a few years now, and while I’m still no expert at being a “grown-up,” I’ve definitely lived and learned. This little series–a combo of helpful tips and links about life on your own–should give you the benefit of my experience without the headaches of learning it the hard way! Yay!
Today we’re going to talk about one of my personal favorite topics: food. ♥
You Don’t Have to Eat Ramen.
Ramen noodles as a dinner entrée is a college cliché for a reason–after all, its not only cheap but also easy to cook. But guess what? You don’t have to eat Ramen. You can eat real food. Grown up food. Food that doesn’t have half your daily recommended value of sodium in one bowl!
So, you don’t have to eat Ramen. But you do have to do a little legwork. Read on to find out how to get good food for less.
One of the best ways to save money at the grocery store is to plan ahead. If you wander aimlessly through the aisles picking up what you think you might want/need, you will probably end up with a cart full of odds and ends you don’t need, and you might forget the things you do. Here’s how to start:
- Step 1: Make a Meal Plan. This is step one, and it is easy. Plan out the meals you want to eat for a week. You can keep it simple–cereal for breakfast, sandwich for lunch, and simple meals for dinner. Then make a grocery list based on the ingredients you need for those 7 days, and only buy those things at the grocery store.
- Step 2: Shop Sales. Once you’ve got the meal planning thing down, you can move on to step 2! Most grocery stores have their weekly sales fliers online, so once you’ve got the hang of meal planning (and give yourself some time if its tricky) start checking the sales fliers before you write out your dining schedule. Cooking based on in season produce and other sale items will really help reduce your food budget.
- Step 3: Add Coupons. Once upon a time you had to spend hours clipping coupons–not something most college students want to do. Now there are tons of blogs that tell you exactly which coupons you need (you can clip them or even print them off–so easy) and which sale items to use them on so that you can get things for cheap (or sometimes even free!). Here are some great sites to start with (I recommend just choosing one store to use coupons at, though, or it will be way too overwhelming):
- Don’t Shop Hungry. Seriously. Have a snack before you head to the grocery store. Shopping hungry leads to impulse buys (because everything looks delicious when you’re starving) and that means spending money you weren’t planning to spend. Curb your appetite, spare your wallet.
- Stick to the List. Remember that list you made when you were making up your meal plan? Don’t buy anything that isn’t on that list!
One more thing that is college-student specific: you can split stuff with your roommates. This is awesome if you find something cheaper in bulk, as long as you can be sure the sharing is even. To keep the peace, I’d recommend only splitting things that come in finite amounts (like veggies or prepackaged items) so nobody gets their nose out of joint when you polish off the last of the milk.
Reduce Back Taxes And Irs Penalties: 7 Little Secrets The Irs Hopes You Never Learn
With years of record deficits (and even more in the proposed budget), the government is more eager than ever to get every dollar of back taxes and IRS penalties from delinquent taxpayers. If you find yourself owing back taxes and IRS penalties, here are the seven little secrets the IRS hopes you never see.
Reducing back taxes and IRS penalties little secret #1: Knowing your taxpayer rights gives you leverage. The most significant way to reduce back taxes and IRS penalties in the audit process is to know your rights as a taxpayer. Instead of feeling powerless in the face of potentially crushing back taxes and IRS penalties, a good tax attorney or a Certified Tax Resolution Specialist will allay your fears by informing you of all the rights and options that are available to you.
Reducing back taxes and IRS penalties little secret #2: Filing unfiled tax returns is an opportunity for a fresh start. You can get a fresh start on your back taxes and IRS penalties, even if you haven’t filed your returns in seven years. Think of it as a back taxes and IRS penalty reboot. Any tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist will tell you that you won’t get off scot free (trivia point: “scot free” is a 13th century Scandinavian term for tax free), but you can improve your back taxes and IRS penalty situation.
Yes, in addition to the regular back taxes debt and standard IRS penalties, you might have to pay as much as 25% in non-filing and non-payment IRS penalties, but in going back years to file unfiled tax returns, you have the benefit of 20/20 hindsight. You can amortize losses. A tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist, by submitting several years at once, may get you a better deal on an individual year by reducing your back taxes and IRS penalties collectively.
Reducing back taxes and IRS penalties little secret #3: Take your pick of 148 IRS penalties. Just like Eskimos have 40 words for snow, Internal Revenue has over 148 different IRS penalties they CAN hit you with. Even the best tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist might not be able to prove your back taxes innocence, but your tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist might be able to persuade the IRS to levy a lesser back taxes debt and IRS penalty.
The IRS auditor on the other side of the desk has a lot of latitude to decide what IRS penalty to inflict. This is where a seasoned tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist earns their fee. A tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist is fully fluent in every tiny nuance of the IRS tax code language. Watching your tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist haggling with an agent over back taxes and IRS penalties, is like watching an opera in a language you don’t understand. One virtuoso performance later, what you feared would be a dark and stormy bloodbath finishes with a happy ending.
Reducing back taxes and IRS penalties little secret #4: You can reduce IRS penalties to zero for reasonable cause. If you’ve got a superstar tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist, they can help you reduce the IRS penalties to zero. You have to show reasonable cause, but this is what tax attorneys or Certified Tax Resolution Specialists do. You may think you’ve got a reasonable cause to reduce IRS penalties, but in most cases your back taxes excuse has been tried a million times before without success. Only someone who knows the IRS tax code inside and out (like a tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist) will know what “reasonable causes” work with the IRS.
Reducing back taxes and IRS penalties little secret #5: You can end IRS audits.
There have been whole books written about avoiding back taxes and IRS penalties. Every year those books get updated. Any good tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist will tell you that the best way to avoid an audit is to file and pay on time. If you can’t pay in full, at least make a token payment of to avoid nonpayment IRS penalties.
If you get an audit letter, a tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist knows the steps to take to end the audit quickly. You wouldn’t believe how long some IRS auditors take to perform an audit. Just to give you an indication, once your audit reaches the 28th month stage, the IRS will ask you to file Form 872, granting the IRS an extension to continue auditing. Every tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist in the country will tell you not to sign without trying to negotiate a back taxes and IRS penalty deal. Once an audit reaches the THREE-YEAR mark, Uncle Sam can’t levy IRS penalties. (This almost never happens.) So unless you want to possibly lose almost three years of your life to the IRS, let your tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist find a way to end the audit as soon as possible.
Reducing back taxes and IRS penalties little secret #6: Legal representation for audits vastly improves your chances for succesful tax resolution.
If you get audited, talking to the auditor yourself is the worst thing you can do. Everything you say is an admission of guilt (at least in the eyes of the IRS). Every tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist can tell you real life horror stories where a taxpayer made what they thought was an innocent or helpful comment that landed them with HUGE back taxes debt and IRS penalties. As the proverb states, “he who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client.” Treat an IRS audit as seriously as you would a murder trial. You are looking at jail time here. Get tax help from a tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist as fast as you can.
Reducing back taxes and IRS penalties little secret #7: The IRS does make deals.
The tax man does make deals on back taxes owed, including interest and IRS penalties. Because this is probably your first time before the IRS, you don’t know the kind of deals you can get. A tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist makes deals with them all day every day including negotiating Offer In Compromise tax settlements and IRS payment plan. A tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist has a professional relationship with IRS auditors. They know not only what deals they have personally gotten from the IRS in the past, but a good tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist hears about the best deals others have gotten from the IRS, as well. You want a tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist, and their deal-making experience, in your corner.
When it comes to an IRS audit or reducing your back taxes, you may feel you’ve been dealt a bad hand, but knowing these seven little secrets to reducing back taxes and IRS penalties can be your ace in the hole. Getting an experienced tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist to play your cards is the best way to walk away from this high-stakes game a winner.

5 Secrets to Getting Up for Class January 2nd, 2011
At the beginning of the school year I posted a poll that let you share your top dreads about the back-to-class months. Coming in at #2 (trailing only 1% behind HOMEWORK itself) was having to get up for class.
I’m with you–it’s the worst! There is something really hard about rolling out of bed with only the prospect of class to look forward to. I hope these tips will help you get through the early-morning drag.
1. Schedule Classes Later. First things first: do NOT schedule a class for a time when you don’t think you can be up, ready, and out the door. After choosing an early morning class my first quarter at UCSD (one during which I almost always fell asleep), I quickly learned that I couldn’t make it to class coherent and ready to learn before 9am. So when you’re choosing next semester’s classes, pay attention to the times!
2. Bring a Friend. Scheduling a class with a friend means you are twice as likely to show up, because (hopefully) both your alarms will go off. Chances are one of you will make it out of bed! Getting a call from a friend (or stopping by to pick them up on the way to class) will give you both a second chance in case you hit snooze one too many times (and someone to watch your back so you don’t sleep through a test). Not to mention seeing a buddy is a little extra motivation to get to class.
3. Work With Your Roommate. Got a roommate whose bright-and-early prep practices drive you nuts when you’re trying to sleep in? Use it to your advantage! Consider timing your morning classes around your roomie’s, and get up and ready around the same time (just plan ahead so you don’t fight over the shower).
4. Get More Sleep. I know its hard to make yourself go to bed–especially when people seem to be awake and doing something interesting at all hours of the night in college–but going to bed a little earlier will (obviously) help your body get the rest it needs to recharge you for the morning. (Harvard Med shares some tips to help you improve your sleep.)
5. Set Your (Internal) Clock. Our bodies naturally tend toward self-scheduling; they get tired, hungry, etc. at about the same time everyday. In my experience, you can “teach” your body when to be alert and when to be sleepy–but it will take consistency and practice. If you want to learn to get up earlier, you’ll have to force yourself to do it as often as humanly possible–that’s the only way to train your body to wake up for 8am class instead of sleeping until noon. (Learn more about your internal clock here.)
And while we’re talking about sleep, why not check out these tips to help you stay awake during class (without resorting to a caffeine regiment).
