Money-Saving Tips

I know a few of you guys came over from my link on Kelly's Korner 'Show Us Your Money Saving Tips'. Here are my best money saving tips and more popular posts.

1. Never pay for Christmas gifts. That's right. This year I don't plan on paying a dime out of pocket for Christmas gifts. How do I do this? Well, I use Swagbucks. Swagbucks is free to join and you use it as a search engine. You get points for random searches. Those points add up and you can redeem them for gift card/prizes. I always get the $5 Amazon gift cards. I have already saved up over $300 in Amazon gift cards in the past 7 1/2 months! By Christmas time I should have enough money in gift cards to buy everyone on my list a Christmas present from Amazon!

2. CLIP COUPONS! Yes, they really save you money. My favorite printable coupon sites are and . For example, there is a coupon for $0.75 off One Box of Wheaties Full. The smaller boxes are $1.00 at Wal-mart so only $0.25 for a box of cereal!

3.Do survey sites for extra money. My favorite is Opinion Outpost. Opinion Outpost surveys takes no time at all to do. You can read all about Opinion Outpost HERE

4. Decorating on a Dollar Tree Budget. I just started doing this but hope to make it a weekly showing. You can see my first example HERE!

5. I also do a weekly(okay, I am bad about this one-lol) sometimes monthly Meal- Deal Mondays. These are recipes that cost less than $5 for a family of 4. Check them all out HERE!

6. And one of my favorites is Homemade Coasters. These are seriously Amazing and so Inexpensive. Read about mine HERE!
