The Fledgling Household

Links/Resources

Buying a Home:

Nolo – Great, free information on a ton of legal topics, not just real estate. I also highly recommend their book on this topic!

Zillow – A good place to start looking at real estate in your area – MLS databases (usually available through your agent or Realtor) are the best once you get serious about it, though.

Managing & Saving Money:

Mint – Free money management software.

Be Centsable – I love their couponing method, and especially their coupon database!

Going Green:

Energy Star – Great if you’re shopping for new appliances, it also has information and recommendations for improving your home’s energy efficiency.

Fuel Economy – Compare cars based on their fuel economy, calculate your MPG, plus tips and information on new technologies.

Local Harvest – Find farmer’s markets, CSA’s, and other local, sustainable food sources near you.

Recyclebank – Learn new ways to live green! You can also earn points for what you recycle, and redeem them for rewards.

MA Specific Resources:

Mass Energy Consumers Alliance – A non-profit that offers a discount heating oil program and renewable energy options for MA residents.
