As a reminder, I will be out of town until 9/10/14. There likely won't be very many posts during this time, but I'll try to respond to all comments and questions as quickly as possible.

The Underwear Factor

As a reminder, I will be out of town until 9/10/14. There likely won't be very many posts during this time, but I'll try to respond to all comments and questions as quickly as possible.

 The Underwear FactorIf you didn’t know, the underwear factor refers to manufactured spending techniques that can be completed at home, in your underwear. I believe the phrase was originally quoted by Matt from Saverocity and I must say, I’ve really taken it to heart.

As you know, I am not a fan of Walmart, I don’t enjoy being denied the ability to buy gift cards, and I dislike wearing clothes. Well, that last point isn’t entirely true, but the idea of doing all my manufactured spending at home is a beautiful thing. Do all of my MS methods have the underwear factor? No. As of right now, underwear-methods are not near as profitable as clothes-methods are, but a man can dream can’t he!

Everything: Evolve Money

As a reminder, I will be out of town until 9/10/14. There likely won't be very many posts during this time, but I'll try to respond to all comments and questions as quickly as possible.

 Everything: Evolve MoneyEvolve Money is a free online bill payment system that has been around since January 2014. It’s very popular in the travel hacking arena, thanks to Evolve allowing the use of gift cards and prepaid cards to pay bills. Unfortunately, they do not allow you to pay credit card bills, so this isn’t very scalable in the MS world, but it’s a great service nonetheless.

Recently Evolve Money updated their site, which caused some issues with bill payments. If you are a regular Evolve user and have hit some roadblocks after their recent update, jump to the FAQs section.

The Ultimate Google Search FAQ

As a reminder, I will be out of town until 9/10/14. There likely won't be very many posts during this time, but I'll try to respond to all comments and questions as quickly as possible.

 The Ultimate Google Search FAQGoogle Analytics is great. It shows me how many visitors I receive, where they are coming from, how long they stay on my site, and what they search for to reach frugalhack.me. It’s quite the informative application, which is not surprising considering that Google made it.

The one thing I don’t like about it, though, is that I cannot respond to any of the people with search questions. Fortunately, I plan to eradicate that problem… with this post.

Here are my blog’s top searched questions and terms verbatim. Read More
