7 Habits of Highly Frugal People

7 Habits of Highly Frugal People: "The book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has sold over 15 million copies since it was first published in 1989, teaching people all over the world how to live a happier, more successful and more satisfying life. One of the prevailing themes of the book is the fact that to change your life you need to change your attitude because no one else is responsible for what happens to you but you, so you can either complain about the things you don’t like in your life or you can set about changing them. Not surprisingly, this directly relates to the state of your finances."

Passengers wait on the wings of US Airways Flight 1549, an Airbus 320 that was safely ditched in the Hudson River after a flock of birds knocked out both its engines. This photograph was taken by artist Steven Day. He recalls, "I have a freelance job on 47th street, on the 8th floor. I was working on my computer when someone passed by me and said, 'what is that?' So I instinctually grabbed my camera —I'm working on a series that involves recording the world around me — and went to the window and started shooting. My initial reaction was 'this must be an exercise.' It didn't occur to me that it was a plane until I zoomed in, because they were just moving down the river like a boat. I mean, you just don't see people standing on the wings of an airplane in the middle of the Hudson River. Alive...The river was moving so fast it was only a matter of seconds before the plane floated past us. The photo here is one of the first frames I took, there's actually a water taxi approaching that ended up being cropped out. Very quickly there were 4 or 5 ferries responding, and passengers were being taken on board. It was strangely calming. This was an incredible situation, and everyone was there and they knew what their job was and what their limitations were and they were just waiting to be rescued."

Failure... teaches SUCCESS." ~Japanese Saying

"What Is Success"
by Ralph Waldo Emerson
To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived;
This is to have succeeded

What is it: is America’s “Finest News Source,” only their news is fake. The good news is that while their mock stories aren’t real, they are pretty damn funny. If the real news has you down, is a great place for a pick-me-up.

Why it will be big in 2009: While amateur viral videos are the fad right now,’s professional satire of CNN, ESPN and every news source in between makes it a creative site on the rise. Whether it’s with a headline, an infographic or of one of their patented Onion News Network videos, is always a place to find a laugh.

No.1 -

What is it: While Wikipedia is the source for, well, everything, Wikitravel is a more focused source on everything travel. Think of it as a travel guide, only this one has more than 20,000 directories with advice on what to do, see and experience, all just a few clicks away.

Why it will be big in 2009: Wikitravel is a great resource that is just becoming a known commodity; and that’s vital, because like Wikipedia, readers contribute to the database of knowledge. Thanks to that word-of-mouth aspect, Wikitravel is quickly becoming the web’s main hub for travel information.
