in the New Year...

In my New Year, I'm going to write more. These last 4-5 months have been LONG and arduous and I feel like I'm surfacing out of a black cloud (dramatic but that's how I feel....)



So I'm going to try to focus on helpful positive things.....I spent a few hours this morning, planning my Commissary trip for tomorrow, coupons at the ready. Deals to be had :) I love coupons! I mean, seriously, I LOVE coupons. I love that thrill of saving money on things my family NEEDS. I use a variety of sites to print off coupons. I go to these sites FREQUENTLY....Here's a small list of blogs that focus on saving money, they might help you, too.

  • http://budgethelpers.blogspot.com/
  • http://couponcravings.com/
  • http://savingslifestyle.com/
  • http://www.momsbyheart.net/
  • http://moneysavingmom.com/
  • http://www.moneywisemoms.com/
coupon printable sites:
  • http://coupons.smartsource.com/
  • http://print.coupons.com/couponweb/
  • http://www.redplum.com/
  • http://www.coupondad.net/
These sites are very helpful to my budget. Another resource I use is MyPoints. They have printable coupons, too. PLUS you get an additional MyPoints bonus if you use the coupons from their site, so it's like a double dip....I love MyPoints fiercely....I talleyed up my savings this past year. In 2010, I cashed in over $400 for gift cards FOR FREE.....MyPoints is super easy. You can get free gift cards and other free stuff for simply doing what you already do. By shopping, reading emails, filling out surveys and other daily chores you will rack up points which can be redeemed for free gift cards, gas cards, hotel discounts and much more.Seriously, it's FREE goodies....and I'll be your best friend forever if you allow me to refer you :) If you join with my link, I get 25 points and you get in on the action. So let me know if you want to start saving, I'll send you an email or a Facebook link.

When it comes right down to it, I'm not a rich woman. I look for saving money wherever I can. Are the same way, too?
