MOM Deals This Week

Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 18, 2009 @ 5:50 pm In Uncategorized | No Comments

When I go out to stores, I’m amazed at some of the prices they charge. I went to Ralphs on Tuesday and they had rice cakes for $2.50 a bag. But, because I get their new ad on Monday, I knew that the price on those very same rice cakes would drop to 75 cents on Wednesday! That’s a huge cost difference. I’m reminded once again to keep my eyes open for good deals.

On that note, I’m thankful for blogs like MoneySavingMom [4], Freebies4Mom [5], and Coupon Cravings [6]. I subscribe to their feeds in Google Reader so that each day I can read about the great coupons, free samples, and sales that they’ve been writing about. What a help to me they are, along with forums like Hot Coupon World [7], to be aware of what’s going on in the stores and restaurants we frequent.

Here are some other money saving ideas and deals that I’ve stumbled upon this past week:

– Buy my ebook Pretty. Cool. Cakes [8] for only $2 instant download. It contains a baker’s dozen of fun and easy themed cakes you can make. Yes, you. Really. This price is good through Sunday. It doubles to its regular price on Monday.

– And while we’re talking cake, don’t forget to check out The Birthday Cake Round-Up [9]. So many fun cakes were submitted. Everyone who participated was entered in a chance to win free dessert from Sara Lee. Visit my giveaway page [10] for the details.

– Great coupons are to be had at Coupons.com [11]. Browse their selection which changes weekly and print the ones that you’ll use. Check Taylortownpreview [12] as well for a sneak peek at Sunday’s inserts.

Purchasing an Entertainment Book [13] is a great way to obtain coupons for restaurants and attractions near you.

– Using Swagbucks [14] as your search engine is a great way to earn points, or swagbucks, for something you’re doing already. When you refer a friend, you get extra points as well, which helps the points really add up. You can trade the points in for prizes, including gift cards and even PayPal money.

– Are you a regular CVS shopper? If you’re not, you might want to be. This week the free school supplies continue. Check out my primer [15] for the details. Sale prices are good through Tuesday.

– IKEA is offering free breakfast [16] this weekend. It’s one of our favorite places to browse. We still have one of our first furniture purchases, a kitchen table from IKEA. (Thanks, Money Saving Mom [4]!)

– This is also a free weekend [17] at select National Parks. The closest one to us is Cabrillo National Monument where we went on a family field trip in January. The kids almost went hurtling off a cliff in their excitement, so I’m not too sure we’re going back so soon. But, it’s great to know that somethings are still free. (Thanks, Coupon Cravings [6]!)
