I get many e-mails and newsletters of places on the internet that I signed up. Yesterday, while I was reading one of the newsletters, I came across an advert for and I decided to click on it and see where it leads me. All I can say is WOW!!! Everyone must try it. So far, it is a free website which helps you find deals in your local shopping area. I had to go grocery shopping last night so I thought that I would go ahead and see what type of deals were at the stores I shop at. Needless to say, I found a deal for every product that I needed on my grocery list. I ended up saving over $30 dollars bottom line and I didn't even have to use a coupon....which mind you....I am not a couponer--one reason is that I always forget to bring them along and I am too busy to keep up on it. So tip this week is to creat an account at, list the stores in your area you love to shop, and let the deals come to you. Happy Shopping Everyone!

Hi Everyone!

This blog is dedicated to frugal living and trying to make my dollar's stretch. I am a single mom of twin daughther's with a limited income. Because I have a limited income, budgeting and finding real bargains becomes a necessity in my household. I am not much of a couponer. My goals are usually to buy what is on sale only. Each week, I will check the sale adverts to determine what I can afford to buy and stockpile. I think that all of us have had times where we just really must crunch the numbers. Well during today's economy, there is no alternative but to crunch the numbers when you shop. I will dedicate this blogspot to my successes and failures of trying to live frugal. I will also post ideas and recipes that I come up with to help others achieve their dreams of living a frugal life. Welcome all! And feel free to e-mail me ideas.
