How to Save Money on a Saturday - Coupons and Church Sales

Today was a great day, and even better — a frugal day. We got up after 9 a.m. (somehow Landon seems to know that it’s the weekend, during the week he gets up around 7:30 a.m. I needed that sleep, I had been up until 2 a.m. again blogging!) and ate a healthy breakfast. I made oatmeal because Landon asked for it (ot meow). I spend a little time on my computer marketing my blog (Twitter and Facebook updates, an e-mail to my friends) and got ready to head out. I wanted to check out the rummage sale at a local church on my way to my dentist appointment. It was the last day of the sale and you got to fill a bag for only $4. I found some nice clothes and a few books for Landon and a Ralph Lauren sweater for myself. Can’t beat that for $4!

This is the third sale I have been to in the last three weeks, and Landon is totally outfitted for the next year or two. There might be a few items I need to shop for later because I can’t predict how fast he grows, but I think I have everything he needs. It makes so much sense to go to those sales — one was of a group of moms who have multiples and therefore plenty of things to sell, and the other two were at a church. If I had bought all those things new at the GAP, Macy’s, or the Children’s Place, I would have spent hundreds more. If you want to save a good chunk of money, find out when local churches and schools in your area have sales. You’ll get such bargains. I don’t have to buy books for Landon in a store for years, he has two boxes full of them waiting in the garage. (Read more)
