FishPapa and I were always what we would call “frugal.” Even when we had debt, we didn’t go on fancy vacations or drive new cars. I did price comparison shopping and clipped coupons every once in awhile. But, we didn’t really see BIG SAVINGS until I discovered the wealth of money-saving blogs that are out there. Holy coupon clipping, Batman! That discovery really helped us “pinch those pennies until they screamed.”
One of the beauties of blogs (and bloggers who use twitter and facebook) is that you can get up-to-the-minutes news about deals that are out there. Coupons, sales, lowest price on anything anywhere — you can get it with a few clicks. Some of my favorites include MoneySavingMom and Freebies4Mom. I’ve been following those girls from almost the very beginning of our get-out of debt story. And they’ve saved me a boatload of cash.
Today, I’d love it if you would share in the comments section 1 or 2 of your favorite money-saving blogs to follow. I am sure that I don’t know about all the great ones that are out there. And we could all use a few more good cheap reads, now, can’t we? I’m convinced that this is a great way to save money.
