I am all on this money saving kick now... which isn't a bad thing! I'm getting to that age where money saved means a lot more than money spent so DH and I are finding cleaver ways to trim fat. I found a website today called www.dealio.com. They had coupons for all kinds of stores! And members can write tips on saving money at certain stores (ie. Who has sales when, who has the best return policy). Here are a couple things Ken and I have done to save money- -We bundled our cable, phone and Internet through the cable company, saving us about $40 a month. -We only use our cell phones for long distance calls, saving about $20 a month. -We drain our pool for 5 months out of the year (when we don't use it), saving us about $150 for every month it is empty. -I joined a "pet perks" deal at PetCo. You get a free bag of dog food for every 10 you buy. We have three dogs and go through about two bags a month, saving about $65 a year. -We changed all of our lightbulbs to energy efficent. I don't know how much the cost was, but we noticed an $80 difference in this month's electric bill. -I get coupons for both Bed, Bath and Beyond and Linen's N Things. BBB will accept any competitor's coupon and they even take their expired ones. I just bought drapes and a rod, used 6 coupons, and saved about $50. -I used to buy fresh flowers to put in my Waterford vase... about $10 a week. I went to Michael's craft store and bought a dried arrangement on clearance for a couple dollars. Now I only buy the fresh flowers for special occasions. -I started buying the cereal in the bags (it's like a generic brand) after Ken complained about the price of cereal. Did he ever notice a difference? Nope. Not only that, but the cheapy Rasin Brain has about three times the amount of rasins as the expensive stuff! OK everyone- Share your ideas!!
