Queen of free: Keep your debt from mounting like snow




Let’s make a deal, Money Saving Lords and Ladies. Since this January has been oh-so-brutal, let’s propose to skip February altogether. Yes, we will lose Valentine’s Day (who needs overpriced candy and flowers, anyway?), but we can go from the winter’s restless barrage of white and skip straight to March’s green grass and blue skies?

While I’d be all for fast-forwarding through the next month, more than likely we will deal with snow a time or two more before winter is said and done. Most of us will deal with removing snow at least once or twice more this winter. Here are a few tips for clearing out the white stuff without spending all of your green stuff.
