This isn't a crafting project today, but I have to share this with you all. I am always looking for a good deal, and it has become a sort of game for me to see how much I can save- trying to beat my last purchase- yes I know I'm a dork. ;) I put the "saved" money in a fund and we as a family use it for vacations, unexpected costs, and other items, etc.
In the last 2 weeks this site has saved our family over $200! We bought our stuff online, and got free shipping, heavily discounted prices (even from the ones they have one the merchandiser's site- which are lower than any store in town) and have been extremely happy with the products when they got here. :) All you have to do is search for what you're either buying online or locally (just enter your zip code for local deals) and it will populate a list from their database of over 50,000 retailers!
So... I was poking around the site and found they also do grocery coupons, online coupon codes, printable coupons for just about anything you can think of (I haven't navigated through this part entirely) and it is a great resource to save some extra cash! :)
So before you confirm your purchase online, enter a code (sometimes you can enter more- we have entered 2 before- free shipping *and* 25% off for 1 purchase- saved us over $145) or print up some coupons before you head to your local retailer. Easy peasy- less than 10 seconds could save you a bunch of money- now I'm starting to sound like a reptile on TV... ha ha :)
Have a great weekend!
