  1. Good day thrifting

    by , 08-30-2012 at 07:50 PM
    Since I have started back to school, I have decided to update my wardrobe. I stopped by a local church and they were having a clothes give-away. I cleaned up(I also donate back to this church and several organization with the clothes, purse, shoes, that I do not wear any more). 6 blouses, 4 pairs of pant, one jacket, a scarf, 6 tops, 3 skirts. On my way home, I stopped by another thrift shop and they were having a 25 cents sale. 3 pairs of pants, two blouses and 1 pair of shoes. I met ...
  2. Back to school

    by , 08-18-2012 at 08:56 PM
    I started back to school(work for me) this past week. I am now on the roller coaster ride of savings and more savings. Here is my break down.

    Walgreens will usually have their Arizona Teas on sale 2 for a $1.oo. I will usually buy enough for the whole month. This keeps me from buying pop. Walgreens also has the cheapest water on sale. My tap water taste terrible. Thiis week, 24 bottles for $2.00. Since they were out, I got a rain check for 3. We have stopped using regular ...
  3. Are they crazy

    For the last couple of months I had to readjust my goals to save and spend less. I am a couponer and the coupons have gone crazy.

My favorite magazine All You use to display very good coupons. I just got a subscription for two years and now they are shadow of thier former self. I use to get three papers a week, now the price has gone up and sometimes ...
  4. Discount

    by , 07-15-2012 at 10:03 PM
    I was sent an general email and one of the articles displayed was about senior discounts. I think it is useful information.

    Senior Discounts

    Keep this list - - - and Send a copy to your senior friends and relatives.

    As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy's recently, I heard him ask for his senior discount. The girl at the register apologized and charged him less. When I asked the man what the discount was, he told
    me that ...
  5. It Finally Happened

    by , 06-30-2012 at 10:19 PM
    I am back in my hometown, visiting my family. Naturally, I had to visit some of my old haunts(code word for thrift shop). What joy it was to see there was one right around the corner from my son's apartment. Another joy I experinced was my children have visited thrift shops and have become somewhat frugal. These are the same children who would step foot into a thrift shop. My daughter recently found a table on the street. I wa shocked and the fact that she told of her find on her facebook ...
