I hope that you bought a newspaper today!
I did, and it is already saving me money! I have a few stores to visit this week so that I can get some "freebies". This week, I'll be able to get
two FREE tubes of Colgate toothpaste and two FREE Lady Speed Sticksby combining specials and coupons! Investing a little time to peruse the sales ads pays off because you learn where your coupons can best be "spent". This week Walgreens has 28 oz. cans of Hunt's Tomato Sauce for only 29 cents! You can bet I'll be stocking up on those, and you'll see them worked into the following weeks menus. With some crafty combining, I will also be able to get 2 bottles of Dawn dish soap for 75 cents each- a steal. Hamburger Helper is BOGO at Publix this week, and although I don't use the product, I am going to take advantage of some coupons I have to get 4 boxes for a total of about 20 cents-and I plan to donate this to a local food bank.
You see, the point of being frugal and stocking up is not to "hoard"- it's to make our own lives simpler and the lives of others richer!
