Two Tips Tuesday

Tip #1: Label a Canister

I have kept this canister from a little set I had when I was single and in my first apartment. It is the only one left but I have always used it for miscellaneous things in the pantry or around the house. The latest uses were a piggy bank for Cati and now it is housing Halloween candy. I love that I can just label it with a dry erase marker and erase it when I find a new use for it. Endless possibilities and I get to indulge in my obsession with labeling any and all things.

Tip #2: Some Great Websites that Save You BIG MOOLA!

I am all about a deal and I am discovering that I have gone far too long in not taking advantage of deals that are floating around out there in cyberland because I have just been too lazy to go look for them. But over the last year I have had delightfully frugal friends who have clued me in on some of these websites that help us out in saving a little money. So here are some I find VERY useful and I hope you will too...especially as the holiday season of ridiculous spending is upon us.

Coupons and codes for a gazillion stores! Savings include things like free shipping or codes for certain percentages off. Great to check out if you do holiday shopping online.

A great grocery store site that does all the work for you to find the deals at your local grocery store, Walgreen's, CVS, etc. If you are willing to do the work, this pays off in crazy ways. BFF went to Walgreen's and got over $60 worth of stuff for $11. Worth a shot!

Limited time deals that expire but are scouted and submitted to this website. You can really find some drastically reduced prices of higher dollar items.

I would love for any of you to comment about some great websites you have found that save some change or have great deals.

Happy Tuesday!

  1. This may be my favorite two-tips post yet! I'm absolutely thrilled about shopping your suggestions online, as I've decided to do all my holiday shopping online this year! I haven't heard of any of these, either! I am subscribed to Brads Deals, another great scouting site for reductions and current deals out there.

    And I LOVE the dry-erase idea for the canister. One Christmas, when it was crazy at our house and we had about 10 house guests, I used a dry erase marker and wrote the day's schedule and the night's meals right on the refrigerator. It came right off and I could do it every day. It was great!


I love, love, love, comments and I read every one! Please keep in mind that I sometimes moderate each one so it may take a bit before it appears on the post. Thanks my sweet friends!
