Thrifty Thursday

Um, where did Wednesday go? I completely forgot that today was Thursday!! So sorry for my late post, but here are a few shopping tips that I've found to help save extra $$. Remember- a little goes a long way. 

  • Before you purchase an item, think about how many hours you had to work at your job to earn the money to buy the item. Sometimes, when you think about it that way, you're more likely to only purchase it if it's a necessity, or at least try harder to find a bargain.
  • Are you looking for grocery coupons? Visit CoolSavings where you'll find grocery coupons for brands you love and trust! Find great savings on food, baby needs, bath & body products, cleaning supplies, vitamins & more! Hurry, offers are limited! (US only) Go to for more information!
  • If you go to yard sales/garage sales when it's raining, you'll have a better chance of getting a better deal. Most people won't go to one of these sales when it's raining, and the people that are holding the sale know that too. Therefore, you have much more room to bargain.
  • Check with your local newspaper to see if they offer a Sunday only delivery. This can cost less than purchasing each weekly paper individually and is usually less than a full paper subscription.
  • Before going to yard/garage sales, make sure that you know your stuff. There are plenty of sites on the internet that you can go to for information on different items. If you know your stuff, you will be better equipped at knowing a real bargain, as well as giving you leverage in trying to negotiate a price.
  • To save money on meats, try cutting up your own meat. For example, a whole chicken costs less than a cut up chicken. Also, if you do it this way, you can bag the pieces up into the size that would meet your family's needs best.
Happy Shopping!! More to come next week!
