    What a wonderful idea! I sometimes feel like I'm missing out on something, your US shopping & lifestyle seems so different to mine. I look forward to seeing heaps of posts in this forum

    Me too. It would be good to see some more Aussies and Kiwis on the site. I often wish we had coupons to clip too.

    Hi - a kiwi here, living on the smell of an oily rag. Hoping to "get by", and make some financial progress.

    Hi TripleT, I've been hoping someone would post in this thread! I'm an 'oily ragger' from way back- where in NZ are you? We need to get a regular tips & bargains thing going here so we don't feel left out

    I am an aussie here too and enjoy learning from everyone how to save money. The money saving ideas work so well that i always find other things that i just absolutely can't live without to spend the money on. Ho Hum

    Thumbs up Useful sites

    Here are a few sites I find useful- the first 4 can get you freebies, vouchers, etc.
    www.contest.co.nz
    www.hoohaa.co.nz
    www.blinky.co.nz
    www.mintshot.co.nz

    These are must visits-
    www.simplesavings.co.nz (download calendar & budget pages)
    www.healthyfood.co.nz (saves buying magazine, access to all recipes & competitions)

    Another Aussie here - thanks for adding this forum. So many website owners forget that there are people outside the US

    Yes, it's nice to feel included instead of feeling like an outsider always looking in!
