They covered everything from fall fashion trends to some tasty seasonal desserts. So, get cozy, and read on for some popular posts that hit the Web this week!
Although it’s still like 90 degrees here in Los Angeles, the rest of the country is finally able to pull their sweaters out. This post from The Budget Babe offers some great options for sweaters that work perfectly for fall. With picks from stores like American Eagle, Forever 21, and H&M, you’re sure to find styles to fall in love with. The best part? They’re all under 50 bucks - which means you won’t have to borrow cash from your holiday fund just to buy one!
While the rest of the world is getting burned out from pumpkin spice overload, you can use another ingredient that’s in season - apples! The Frugal Navy Wife pulled together 25 yummy recipes for apple desserts (like Iced Apple Drop Cookies and a takeoff on McDonald’s Apple Pie) that will have your mouth watering. Now, can someone please make us the Apple Cranberry Crisp?
Now that it’s fall, you should be preparing for any travel you’re planning for the holidays. If you wait much longer, you could end up paying more for flights or hotel rooms. Bargaineering suggests traveling midweek, tracking fares, and shipping your bags to help save money on airfare. If you’re traveling for Thanksgiving, they recommend booking now to get the best rates!
