Saving money one coupon at a time.

10 Feb

Today at Stater Bros. I spent $41.84 and saved $39.88. Not bad. Even better was spending 39.96 at Ralphs and saving $55.42. Whoo hoo! I even got register coupons back for about $3.50 AND will get cash back from Ralphs for about $6.50 just on todays transactions. I’ll be off to Target later to get a few very cheap and/or free items.

A few of the sites helping me are:

Yeah, the couponing takes extra time, but since I’m a stay at home mom, I MAKE the time.  Cutting costs are part of my job.

Also, in these hard times many stores are accepting expired coupons.  My husband found a coupon for Harbor Freight that expired yesterday, and he called and spoke to the manager who said he would accept it as long as he brought it in.  (20% makes a difference!)  Also, many restaurants are doing the same (Pat & Oscars to name just one), so it doesn’t hurt to ask.

Anyone else want to share their ideas?


Save some money now!

For all of you poor people like me money-savers out there, The 2008 Entertainment Book is on sale for only $15.00 (and FREE shipping!).  I’ve bought these in the past and they have 50% off savings at several local restaurants, fast food chains, movie theaters, theme parks, etc.  $15 is a steal at this point… for some it is the cost of one dinner!   This is a great way to take the family out for cheap or to try a new restaurant.
