 I know I love to save money and you do to I assume.

Here are a few money saving tips..

1. Love to read then visit Amazon.com Pixil.com and grab the free books of the day. If you don't have a Kindle, dont fear just download a kindle to your computer and read it there.

2. Freecycle.com is a great way to find things you could use. Just go to the one in your community and aply and wait for the emails to pour in.

3. Coupons are the best and in house coupons are even better!! :)

4. make it yourself if possible.. Go to Pinterest.com and it is a great resource for every need.

5. Stock up! If there is a sale then stock up...

What money saving tips do you have to share?

 Great tips! I love thrift stores and yard sales, as well.

If you use coupons make sure you actually need what the coupon says sometimes the generic is cheaper

Stay out of the stores! Only go when it is a necessity!

I always make my, hubby's, and DD's Halloween costumes from thrift store finds. Last year, I spent a total of $25 on costumes for all 3 of us (we were ghosts from Disney's Haunted Mansion and hubby was the graveyard keeper.) After Halloween, I washed, the donated the clothes with the rest of our Good Will contributions and got tax credit for them.

You can find deals for just about any online shopping site and theme park through retailmenot.com.

I always buy fabric softener sheets and cleaning supplies from the dollar store.

When the spending bug bites me, I go online to some of my favorite sites and fill up my cart with all sorts of goodies. Then I close my browser before making any purchases. No buyers remorse!
