I'm not crazy... yet
I was thrilled to get seven things for free this week. Since some of y'all asked how I did it... I'm starting a blog because I think it's the easiest way to share my tips on rational saving. I'm never gonna be one of the crazies, at least I don't think so. I'm probably not gonna have 75 newspapers delivered to my doorstep or ask the manager of Walmart to fax me a list of every item's price, and you're not either. But anything we can get for free or cheap helps! And as long as it doesn't take a complex formula or excel chart, I'll do it. I can handle buying a couple of newspapers and signing up for some deal alerts/printing my two coupon limit online. If it gets me two to four Airwicks or yogurts, I'm happy. The whole point is to save some money on things I don't want to buy (diapers, printer ink, toilet paper, razors) so I can buy more of the things I do enjoy buying (clothes, Starbucks, etc) . Let's see what we can save!
