Sunday is coming up so I wanted to show you how I organize my coupons. I hope you find this video helpful. If you have any time saving tips, please feel free to share them with us!
In case you missed it earlier this morning, here’s one of the brief video segments (2 minutes, 30 seconds) from my appearance with Melissa Cabral on the Good Day Sacramento show on CBS. Thank you to Melissa and Good Day Sacramento for inviting me to be on the show.
Ever since I started trying to find ways to save, it’s always come back to the same things: time and money. I’ve come up with a way to save on both. If you’re trying to find ways to save, here is one of the easiest ways to begin. Meal planning is so easy, and it’s one of the best ways to start. You can start by printing the Frugal Day Weekly Meal Planner to get you started. continued
Just because you like a specific brand doesn’t make you a brand snob. However, have you tried other makers to see if your brand is really the best? Colin over at Hip2Save challenged us to a taste test of our favorite brands. I picked three items that we buy on a regular basis to see how they stand up against store brands. How does your brand stand up? You might be surprised!
We did this video a couple weeks ago. Since then I was able to get Honey Nut Cherrios for as low as $0.69 for a 17 oz. box. This is a great deal. So if you have an in-ad coupon, club card, and manufacturer coupons you can get the name brand for a lot less. This week, you can still get HNC for as low as $1.38. This price is still lower than the store brand.
One thing you should note. In San Francisco, our prices are a lot higher than most stores not surrounded by a bunch of water. So when I tell you the prices, this is what I paid at my Safeway store. Also, we were not paid to endorse any of these products. This is our own personal opinion.
Check out these great money-saving tips from The Early Show on CBS:
We’ve had one of these little Flip video cameras for a little over a year now and we absolutely love its simplicity. This camera makes so easy to capture the priceless moments with our family. A power slider on the side, and a big red record button on the back – you can’t screw up or miss the moment with this camera. Right now you can get the basic Flip for $116 (22% off) from Amazon. Or if you want to splurge for the HD version, it’s only $154 (23% off). For the size and price, we love the quality of the Flip’s video.
