Welcome Bethel coupon class attendees!

by Melody on June 30, 2011






A huge welcome to all those who came to chat with me today!  Thank you so much for coming and I really hope you came away with some valuable information to start saving your families some money.

Please remember you can always ask for help!  Everyone has to start somewhere.  We have a really helpful little online community here.  Leave comments on specific posts with questions or email me at beautifulfrugallife {at} gmail {dot} com.

You can easily subscribe to my blog (for free) through various methods.  In the top right corner of the blog, you can choose to subscribe via email (get daily updates), Twitter (automatically updates with every post), Facebook (time-sensitive deals) or RSS feed (continually updates).

Here are a few links to things we talked about:

You can also check out my “Getting Started” posts through the tab on the top navigation bar.  You can find more in-depth information about finding and organizing coupons, our monthly budget and ideas for meal planning.

These are a few of my favorite daily deal sites.  I try to highlight what I think are the best deals and I do a little research for you to find out how much shipping costs will be and whether it truly is a “deal”.

  • Seize the Deal (local)
  • Groupon (National offers to big retailers)
  • Mamapedia (Organic offers and children’s items, $5 credit for signing up)
  • Living Social (National offers + WA based getaways and hotel stays, $5 credit for signing up)

We talked a little bit about cash back sites for your online purchases, my favorite is Ebates.  Sign up for a new account and you should get a $5 sign-up bonus.  All you have to do is type in the site you are looking for in the search bar and click “Shop Now”.  You will automatically be redirected to the site of your choice.  Make your purchase and your cash back will be deposited into your Ebates account in a few days.

For information on the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program that my family joined, check out Finley’s Fresh Produce.

I had a lot of fun talking with you today.  I am really passionate about helping others save money.. Good luck on your journey!

Thanks Melody! You inspired me to make a trip to Albertson’s and Fred Meyers at 7 am today so that I wouldn’t hold up the lines as a “couponing novice.” Of course, they were out of the Granola thins, but I did buy the other granola bars and scored a deal on chicken. It worked just like you said it would 🙂 As a teacher on a fixed income, I really appreciated your advice on saving money! I’m excited to follow some more of your advice….thanks again!
