- The Daily Muse | Work + Money | Mon, Nov 19, 2012 9:30 PM EST | CommentsThere are plenty of ways to save money-make a budget, spend less, cook dinner instead of doing take-out again-and if you're trying to cut your expenses, you've probably tried (or at least heard about) them all. But even for those of you who're already doing all the right things, here are a few more uncommon tricks to saving a few bucks here and there.
Money Saving Tips
1. Make a Food Calendar to Stop Wasting ItBe honest: How often do you realize that you let your milk, leftovers, or veggies go bad? Your secret is safe with me, but know that every time you throw out that (gross, mushy, smelly) expired food, you're throwing away money. If you do this often, I recommend putting a calendar on your fridge, with a pen tied to it for easy access.

- Jessica Ferri | Work + Money | Mon, Nov 19, 2012 9:18 PM EST | CommentsDuring your holiday gift shopping this season, there may be one option you haven't thought of before: Property Room, an e-commerce auction house. On the Property Room website you can expect to see discounted prices on over 4,000 items, including jewelry, electronics and vehicles. The items are stolen goods recovered by 2,800 police departments across the country. When no one comes forward to claim them, the goods go up for auction.
Bicycles are the most commonly stolen item, according to Property Room.
Property Room's auctions have generated more than $46 million dollars in revenue sent back to local communities. Now you can turn a sad story into a nice gift for a loved one and give back in the holiday spirit.
Property Room's C.E.O. P.J. Bellomo shared with Yahoo! Shine the most stolen (or, "recovered," as they like to say) items in the nation based on a survey the company conducted this year.

Anyone might enjoy it, he says: "It can be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys YA [young adult] fiction because it also has similarities to classic and contemporary literary genres such as horror (Frankenstein, The Most Dangerous Game, The Hunger Games), stories about coming of age (Twilight), suspense, and redemption. The youngest YA reader can take life lessons from the book with even the simplest understanding that there are codes out there, available to anyone, to becoming a better person and accomplishing anything imaginable.
