For 2012, I’ve decided to run a monthly/bimonthly/weekly series called 12 in ’12. It will be a list of 12 related items, recipes, slow cooker meals, etc. that will help you along your way in spending less on groceries and being creative in the kitchen!
First up…Spending Less!
There are lots, and lots, and lots of coupons out there. Coupons are free money people. And if you can get them organzied, they don’t take much time at all! We will share the best and hottest coupons with you…the ones that will help you spend the least on groceries. (You can sign up for express delivery of the latest coupons to your inbox.)
Lots of great freebie options out there…and don’t forget that freebies often come with coupons. And “junk email”…so be sure to use a separate email address when signing up for freebies!
Remember to set up a junk email account to use when signing up for freebies!
There are hundreds of daily deals sites…here are a few of my favorites!
- Living Social
- Zulily (Daily Deals for Moms and Babies)
- Craftsy (Daily Deals for Craftsy Folks!)
- Couptivate (This one organizes all your deals from all the daily deal sites!)
Earn cash back on all your online purchases. Percentages vary from 2% to 50%, depending on the store.
Get online coupon codes for thousands of stores. And they can often be used in store as well, just have the cashier type in the code.
Meal planning is a life saver…and a penny saver too.
Earn points and “bucks” that can be redeemed for gift cards.
So maybe I got a little carried away…more than 12 resources here. But I wanted to bring it all together in an easy to see format. Now you can decide the best place to start spending less on groceries, and on other things too!
Happy Spending Less!
