Random Frugal Tips

  • Save your coupons and buy items when they're on sale.
  • If you find something at a rock bottom price, buy as much as you can! I totally believe in stock piling! It's smart!
  • Compare grocery ads...menu plan around what's on sale. Know your prices, but know that it takes time to learn!
  • Stack store coupons with manufacture coupons.
  • Stack eCoupons with manufacture coupons.
  • Eat out less.
  • Find free entertainment. Parks!
  • Drink more water. It's free!
  • Budget! I recommend Mvelopes.com.
  • Consider buying or atleast trying store brands and generics.
  • Eat before you shop.
  • Shop with a list. My exception is when I find something on clearance, have a coupon for it, and would have to buy the item anyway in the near future.
  • Eat those leftovers! Throwing away food is like throwing away money!
  • Compare prices with product sizes. Figure the cost per unit always.
  • Request a rain check when a sale item is out of stock.
  • When you find a good frugal gift, but it and save it until needed.
  • Apply the 7 day wait rule when you come across something bigger you want to buy. Most of the time, the desire to buy will pass, and you will find a way to live without it.
  • Get multiple newspapers.
  • Be willing to shop at more than one store.
  • Fill out rebates.
  • Get your coupons organized so you can use them to their maximum potential!
  • Save on your utility bill. Run the dishwasher when it's completely full. Only wash a full load of laundry.
  • Buy clippers (like $30) and cut your husband's hair. It's really a lot easier than I thought.
  • Get books and DVDs at the library.
  • Brown bag it!
  • Read frugal blogs, books, and articles to stay encouraged, motivated, and informed.
