Finding a good deal

My friends always ask me how I find good deals. If I know I want something I will Google it to see if I can find a coupon or discount for the item I want. I read the newspaper, flyers at YMCA, information that comes home from school and I ask around for good deals. If you love a company get on their mailing list and the deals will come to you. If you are on a web site click on the ads on that site for deals that are targeted to you.

Free Kids Ice Cream @ Chick-Fil-A

My kids love Chick-Fil-A. I can almost always find a coupon for Chick-Fil-A. I went to Chick-Fil-A for years and never knew you could trade your kids meal toy for ice cream. Now until Dec. 3 if you bring a new unwrapped toy or kids clothing to a Lexington, KY area Chick-Fil-A for will receive a free sandwich.

I Love Goodwill Stores

I found a Ralph Lauren little black dress for just $5!

At Goodwill today, I bought over $200 worth of clothing and lamps for just $15.00! If you want to save money shop at your local Goodwill Store. Don't let pride get in your way. Some of the wealthiest people in town shop at Goodwill. It is like a treasure hunt. New merchandise every day.

Like my husband's beloved grandfather used say, "It's not how much you make that's important - It's what you make of it!" :-)

I made $17 an hour on Election Day

A great fun way to make extra money is to work the polls on Election Day. I worked yesterday. It is great fun. You get to talk to your neighbors and help your community. The best part is you also get paid. Not all counties pay the same for poll workers on Election Day but I made about $17 an hour working the polls. Look in the phone book or on the web for your County Clerk and sign up to work next Election Day.
Your family will love you even more after you have been gone all day..LOL

$120 FREE Gift Cards for moving Prescription Medication

In the last 6 months I have made $120 in store gift cards by moving my Prescription Medication. Almost every week there is a coupon in the Sunday paper for store gift cards if you move your Prescription Medication. It is no big deal and easy to do. It doesn't take extra time. I have moved my Prescription Medication from Kroger, K-Mart, Walgreen's, and Rite- Aid and received a $20 gift card each time.
Also, most pharmacies will match the $4.00 Wal-Mart deal for Prescription Medication but you have to ask for the price match and you have to ask every time you have your Prescription filled.

Wal-Mart Will Match Food Ads

Did you know Wal-Mart will match any price on food that is in an ad from another store. The only thing they will not honor is buy one get one free. It gets even better. I found out the other day Wal-Mart will also match the price on store brands. So if Kroger Brand Jelly is on sale for $1 a jar Wal-Mart will sell you the Wal-Mart brand for $1 a jar.

Free Samples from Wal-Mart

I love to shop but I also LOVE to save money. If you want to get the joy of shopping without spending any money. Go to Wal-Mart's free sample page. The URL on Wal-Mart's free samples page changes often so once you get to Wal-Mart's home page type in the words"free samples" and you will have the latest sample offers. Go to the sight often because there are new samples all the time.The samples are free and are mailed to your home.

Save Halloween Candy for Christmas, Easter and Birthdays

If your kids get tons and tons of candy for Trick or Treat, take some of the candy out of their bags when they are not looking and save it for Christmas stockings, Easter baskets and Birthday party goodie bags. Chocolate can be kept in the freezer. Just make sure you keep you kids out of the loop on this one. This a great money saving trick and it is a treat to your family budget.
