Last year I learned about a local grocery store that has double and triple coupon sales about once a month and a friend of mine told me about a great website that showed you all kinds of local deals. So, at the beginning of 2010, I decided I was going to try and see how much money I could save between coupons and earning cash and prizes off of the internet. Well, it’s the beginning of March and, to date, I’ve saved $400.00. Pretty good considering the fact that I am single and really don’t do THAT much shopping.
So, I thought I’d share some of the ways you can save money. I will include links to everything at the bottom of this blog for you to use.
The first, and probably the biggest is using coupons at the grocery stores. A couple of the local stores will double coupons up to 50 cents and there are several website from which you can print coupons. The website I use to get the best deals locally is www.faithfulprovisions.com. She does a great job of breaking down the sales at Publix, Kroger, Harris Teeter, CVS, Target, Walgreens and Walmart (and she gives you links to the other sites for even more deals).
Another way I have found to make a little money is using rebate sites online that pay you a percentage of cash back. If you do any shopping online, this is a great way to go because you earn a little money back every time you shop.
Finally, there are several websites online that either pay you or reward you for using their site to link to other sites, to read emails or to do internet searches. It takes a little bit of time but it all pays out in the end.
So, if you are looking for ways to earn and/or save a little money, those are just a few. Look around and you may find other deals.
