$3 at Publix + LOOK @ this new awesome coupon that I found!

Look at this awesome coupon that I found in the baby section of Publix! It's for $3 off a $25 purchase. It says HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY (in Spanish) on the front of it. I used it to buy a small bag of Iams dog food, 2 boxes of Post cereal, a few pieces of fruit, a bottle of Powerade, 2 bags of quaker rice chips, 2 Sundown vitamins, 1 Visine, and a $1 donation to MARCH OF DIMES. All this ended up being only $3 with tax! I love Publix!

I love livingsocial deals... USE MOM5 coupon code

Last week I got a $10 oil change. Yesterday, I had a $50 dinner for $25 + tip. I love livingsocial. I've never bought a livingsocial "escape". Have you? Use MOM5 coupon code to get an extra $5 off. Yayyy!

Yep, NEGATIVE 17 cents. The best coupon that I used was the $5 off $20 publix coupon that I got in the mail. Love it! Whoop Whoop!

Amazon offers Free ebooks and occasional mp3s :)

Over the past few months I have "bought" 15 ebooks for $0.00. For example, this ebook was free. Now, it is $2.99. You don't even need an eReader.

Always shop around and compare banking products, too.

If you are trying to save money you shouldn't just look at your savings at the stores. You should also look at banking products. Which bank will pay you the HIGHEST interest rate for saving your money and keeping it with their bank? Interest rates change all the time, so it is important to keep up!

Today, I noticed Bank of America has awful interest rates. They offer a .01% monthly interest rate for their checking accounts. BLAH! So, if you have $2,000 in your BOA checking account, you only make 20 cents per month and it is time to find a new bank.

USAA offers a .1% monthy interest rate on their savings accounts, which is a litte better. With that same $2,000 you could make $2 per month. That's $24 per year that you wouldn't have if you were a BOA customer.

Then, I realized Capital One 360 is the best. They offer .2% interest rates on CHECKING accounts and offer you a $50 first time sign up offer. Your $2,000 has now made $50 per year.

Spent only $1 at PUBLIX... for March of Dimes donation AND groceries :)

March of Dimes

I bought 1.75lbs of fresh chicken for $5.25 (this was cheaper than the generic frozen chicken), tons of beechnut baby food, 2 covergirl nail files, 2 totino's pizza rolls, 2 juicy juice, Thomas bagels, Kraft cream cheese, 2 icing packets, 1 honey mustard sauce and $1 donation to the March of Dimes. My total was a few cents over $25, so I used a competitor coupon from Yayyy!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle... Clothes?!? Yes!

Buying clothes used it one of the best ways to SAVE MONEY. I love consignment shops, including thredUP. You get $10 off your first order, which means you can get kids' clothes for FREE. There are many items under $5, plus shipping is around $5. They will also send you a bag, which you can mail back with clothes that you want to sell. How AWESOME?!?!?

They will be starting a women's consignment shop soon. I can't wait! Check it out HERE! How cool is it that you can get great deals on gently used clothing for you and your kids without leaving your house?!? Love it!
