My Cheap-o Secret!!!

Lots of folks ask about how I save money. The cold, hard truth is....I am a lazy person with lots of different responsibilities. So, organizing my coupons to the hilt is not realistic. I choose to do the easy thing!

The easiest thing for me to do is check the deals going on at the grocery store. In my hometown grocery, there are two main things going on: discounted meat and dairy, and an area with scratch-and-dent groceries. These areas vary in each grocery store, but I have found that Ingles and Piggly Wiggly tend to locate their items in grocery buggies near to the entrance. I find all sorts of nonperishable items there....beat-up boxes of oatmeal, dented cans of tomato soup (still openable!! People ask me that all the time, but I have never had a problem...), and--most recently--cake mixes, frosting, and other baking items.

As for the discounted meat and dairy....get ready to use it immediately. On-sale milk can be used to make Jell-o puddings, churns of homemade ice cream, or big bowls of cereal. :-)

Hope this encourages you to think "outside the buggy"! Oh, and for those of you who are enjoying the benefits of a well-organized coupon stash, did I tell you that you can use coupons on those on-sale items? I made 50 cents (as in, I got the product for free and got 50 cents credit) by purchasing the Chef Boyardee products pictured and using a 50 cent coupon.... check out recipes from the recent House Party that I had. Saving money is all about putting it together to make great deals that work with your life.

Happy Couponing!

FREE Sample of Swiffer!

Check out the following link to score a free, classic hand-held Swiffer Duster! This is a great sample, and there is always the chance for a great coupon as well.

I love Swiffer dusters because they let me do my quick dusting without any spray, so they can be used in a variety of ways--on blinds, over the TV screen, between my long-stemmed wine glasses, and so forth.

Mott's For Tots....and Vocalpoint! Don't miss it!

My kids are heavy drinkers. :-) They aren't picky, and they will drink anything from milk to juice. However, whatever they do drink, they tend to gulp.....this doesn't always work out so well with juice, where they fill their little tummies up way too quickly with lots of sugar. Every drop counts!

Enter Mott's For Tots, which allows me to give my kids a sip of something juicy and sweet while making sure it is something I can agree with. When I'm on the go--or in a hurry (and when am I not in a hurry?)--nothing could be easier than pouring them a cold glass of the juice. And there is 40% less sugar in a serving than there is in your average cuppa apple juice. It's a win-win!
