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)

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
