You Can Afford Free{Giveaway}{Thrifty Thursday}

****Giveaway Winner is Cathy B of ProjectHope7!!!****

I am SO excited because today is my very first blog linky party!! I hope you will join me! (see instructions at the bottom of this post)

Thrifty Thursday Button with border thickAs you can probably tell by now, I am a coupon FANATIC!! It’s gotten to where now, after trying to be so thrifty this year, that I absolutely despise paying full price for anything!

Did you know that there are specials “out there” that just go unnoticed? I’ve always known of the traditional way to get coupons (newspaper) or print them online, but after doing some research, there are GOBS of coupons for the taking! You just have to know where to look.

Most of you have probably heard by now of Groupon. It is a site that will notify you of any coupons in your designated area. The whole idea is that when you purchase in bulk, you save! Groupon will pre-determine the number of “takers” it will need in order to offer a particular special, so if that number of people in your area buy that “groupon”, then you save money!

For example, today, there is a coupon for a Lifetime Membership and Two Classes at My Gym Children’s Fitness Center for only $39 (instead of the normal rate of $116.20!).image

They post lots of coupons every day! Sign up for their free savings today!

I also found these sites for rebates, promo codes, and other coupons. Check them out

Ebates- they post online rebates and deals from over 1.200 stores.

Retail Me Not- this site is amazing! They post online coupon codes for over 60.000 stores!

Coupon Mountain- another site that posts online promo codes and online coupons.

Coupon Cabin- right now they have 151.118 online coupon codes and specials posted!

Coupon Code-another great site for online promo codes.

Did you even KNOW there were so much savings out there?? I wish I had known about this before Christmas!! I hate to think of the money I threw away by not taking advantage of sales. {sniff,sniff}

  5. just found you today. Have to say,it wasn't only your jewelery, but when I saw your bold statement.."I am a Christ Follower" it won me over! As a sister in Christ and former foreign missionary, I so love it when I see brothers & sisters identify themselves boldly with the Lord.
