Although we are all thinking about Pesach and spring cleaning right now, the weather is warming up and many people are thinking about vacations and summer plans. I am making plans for my boys for camp and need to change over their clothes soon (from winter to spring)! With this in mind and my continuing... Continue Reading →
14 reasons to love Target
Target ranks up there as one of my top three favorite stores (the others being Michaels and Office Depot). If I do a little preparation before going, I can usually save $20 - $40 between all of their discount offerings (coupons, Red Card, text offers, and Cartwheel app). Then add sales, clearance prices, and my price list and the savings are... Continue Reading →
Saving money at Office Depot
One of my favorite stores is Office Depot Office Max. During the summer the employees recognize me because I come in each week shopping for school supplies. I have saved hundreds of dollars through their Rewards programs, sales, and ink recycling. Last year, I got a great deal on a printer by using their price guarantee... Continue Reading →
Follow up on ditching cable – we love our Roku!
Several months ago I wrote about our ever-ending quest to find larger items to save money on. We finally “bit the bullet” and got rid of our cable. Even after reading about others who had done it, I thought we could never live without it. It was our one splurge – not eating out much,... Continue Reading →
The best $10 a month I spend – Dropbox!
(updated 4/9/17) A few years ago, right around report card time, my laptop got one of those horrible trojan worm viruses. It hid all of my files and I couldn’t access anything even though I could see the files were somewhat still there. It took me hours to do research and figure out how to... Continue Reading →
Save big on your phone and cable!
During my quest to save money, it has been much easier to find small ways to save. And those small ways can add up over the course of a year. Finding those big-ticket items can be more problematic. However, in the last two days I have found two new things that will together save us... Continue Reading →
Printer ink can cost a fortune!
Our printer recently died and HP told us that it could not be fixed. They offered us an upgrade at a lower price. I checked out Amazon and it was a lower price than they could offer. Our new printer came very fast and I was excited that I can scan, copy, and print from... Continue Reading →
Why I love Target!
(updated 3/2/17) I have had very few trips to Target where I don't come out feeling like I have accomplished something big! Some trips, particularly those when I take the kids, I leave exhausted and frustrated. However, most trips I find so many good deals that I can't wait to get home and share them... Continue Reading →
New series: Highlights from my favorite cookbook
This week I was very excited to get in touch with my favorite cookbook author, Sarah Fritschner. She has written many cookbooks and worked as a food writer for several newspapers, most recently as the food editor for the Louisville Times and Courier-Journal. Since 2009, she has served as the coordinator for the Louisville Farm... Continue Reading →
Wash, store, and save! (Two favorite kitchen products)
We have many things in our kitchen that hardly get used, even though they seemed like such a good idea at the time. Getting cookies just right without burning seemed like a great reason to buy a cookie sheet stone, but I think we have used it maybe twice! The second crock pot was great... Continue Reading →
