You all know that I am one thrifty person. I’ve ALWAYS called my self cheap, Michael just calls me frugal. I love his Northern way of think of this Southern gal!
I do so many things in my power to save money, it confuses most people. I know it does Michael. Gracie is pretty well versed in all of it. My favorite way to save is with Printable Coupons. I love matching them with sales and using them on my favorite, everyday products. It also gives me the opportunity to try new items, especially beauty items. Gracie IS a teenager.
I use several different coupon mobile apps, along with the Printable Coupons. That helps save so much. It takes a lot of organization though and you must keep up with the receipts. All of this takes time. You can’t just jump in and do ALL of the money saving opportunities. If I were going to start with anything, I would have you start like I did and that was with the couponing.
A lot of grocery stores are starting to offer specials and deals with their loyalty cards and their online sites. I’ve gotten several free items from Kroger and been extremely happy about those, they are just added to my loyalty card. I did find this one for a Free 12 oz. Diet Coke Slim Can at Giant Eagle. I wish we had a Giant Eagle here!
I also like to get free samples. I know that has NOTHING to do with saving money, exactly. You don’t have to spend money on the items though. I’ve gotten some VERY nice free items on the internet since I’ve been online too, very nice. Right now, I’m on a mission to get free magazine subscriptions for my nephew. I found out at Christmas that he uses his money and buys magazines and reads them forever. I’ve subscribed to every hunting magazine and auto magazine I can find. Someone out there must really think I’m a woman who loves to hunt and loves cars! I did find this magazine subscription today, Free Subscription to Town & Country Magazine.
What are some of the ways you like to save money? Will you share them with me? Do you have some free samples or coupons that I need to head over and check out?
