Works For Me Wednesday

My hint for today is about saving money by finding deals on-line. With the internet, there are so many ways to get free coupons and free samples that it is hard to keep track of everything. DealofDay is a forum where people post different money saving ideas and links. There are a lot of coupons and links, even some phone numbers to call, but I haven't tried that before. It is worth a look if you are the kind of person that enjoys saving some money! I grew up on "no name brand" food, and I hated it, so I want to buy "the good stuff" but still not have to pay too much. DealofDay helps!

By the way, my son Night told me last night that I had a good idea, so I maybe I should've posted that one instead... He and Josh (my husband) were having a little tiff (okay-Night was screaming) because Night wanted to lift the whole dog food bag to pour it into the bowl. Josh said it would be better to put the bowl in the bag because the bag was too heavy. Since the bowl is glass and Night is three, he needed help. Night did NOT want help, so he ran out to "tell on" his dad. I told him that I had an idea-put a cup in the bag so he could scoop it out whenever he wanted to feed the dog. He did and then he ran out and told me, "That was a great idea, Mari."

For more helpful hints, take a look at Shannon's blog. She has heaps of new ideas posted every Wednesday, thus the name: Works for Me Wednesday (brilliant).

I like both ideas. I actually use a soup ladle to scoop out food for my cats!
Thanks for the site. I'm a couponer and I'll definitely enjoy this!

I'm the same as you, I like the nice stuff, but don't like paying for it.

I'm trying to find a cheap way to buy organic vegetables, I can't understand why they need to cost so much more than regular vegetables.

I love the WFMW hints, keep them coming.

Great tips, but I wouldn't expect less from a fan of Gilmore Girls and Dixie Chicks. Agree with you on both!
