Savings Corner Post: some great sites, ideas, & products that will save you money


Here are some sites, some I have shared before, that will help you in your quest to be a little more frugal.  Some you do have to sign up for, but as far as I can tell it's free.  So here you go:

  • We Use Coupons -  has a database of coupons, as messageboard
  • Boots No. 7 beauty products - this brand is supposed to be one of the best sellers and quite a bit deal in the UK.  The wrinkle cream is "the latest rave", and it seems to be hard to find.  Why? Because its getting great reviews, seems to work, and has a more than reasonable price tag. Click on the title to get it at Target online.
  • Coupon Bug - some of you may be familiar with this one.  It seems to be one of the more reputable coupon sites.
  • Coupon Craze - I haven't used it, but it was recommended to me
  • Follow a company on Twitter or Facebook (or "become a fan") if you like their products; many offer discounts to those who follow them on various social sites
  • Peachy Cheap - each day they have one exceptional scrapbooking deal
  • Pet Nutrition Products online store - I give this one because I just did a ton of online research trying to find the best deal on the best flea & tick as well as heartworm medication; this site was the winner.  Yes, for heartworm you do need a prescription but you give them your vet's contact information and they call to get authorization.  My vet charges $10 for the prescription, but I still saved quite a bit of money over buying the products at the vet or even another online store.
  • Consider adding Google ads to your blog--just click "customize" in the upper right hand corner of your screen, then click on the fourth tab, "monetize"; it will lead you through the process.  It may only be a few dollars a month, but it will add up over time.
  • Airfare Watchdog - I signed up for their email newsletter & they find some of THE best deals, based on destinations I previously gave them.
  • Save on Crafts - 20-50% off every day; this is a top 1000 site, reaching thousands and thousands daily
  • Woot - another one deal per day site-this is the biggest
  • Squidoo - I just found this one, it lists & describes a lot of these "one deal per day" sites; definitely take a look at this one
  • The Frugal Shopper - tons of info, almost gets confusing--but has freebies, coupons--definitley worth a visit
  • 55 tips for frugal shoppers - some seem obvious, some are good reminders, all in all another site worth visiting

Looking for the FREE ZONE (free blog background sites, free font sites...)

That information has been moved to the Imagine That Plus site so that this site will load faster (that one doesn't have as much, and everything is pretty much in posts & not at the bottom of every page so it loads at a pretty good rate).
