95th Festival of Frugality

by Rocket Finance

My post from last week “Pay for Diapers by Breastfeeding” recieved a fair amount of attention so I was especially drawn to posts about using coupons during the festival of frugality hosted by My Retirement Blog. I personally am most interested in coupons that have resale value on ebay or craiglist, but my wife certainly uses coupons for groceries and other items.

A Penny Closer revealed her coupon system. I though there were some very good tips in the post and will certainly forward this to the person in our house who does the most grocery shopping. I am not allowed in the grocery store.

Another great post on saving money on food is found at the Frugal Law Student. I enjoyed going through his list of 27 ways to save money on food and thought that numbers 6, 7, 11, 13, 16 were ones that I hope to implement or have the most value.

I didn’t find much of value in the body of Plonkee’s post entitled “fake it till you make it”, but I think the title alone has value in a number of areas in life. In fact, I plan to use that very phrase in a meeting today at my place of business.

If you really want to save money on groceries, check out the Chase Freedom Card featuring 3.75% cash back on groceries and many other items.

    Well maybe if you’re the sort of person that likes to keep up a certain type of appearance anyway.

    I used “fake it till you make it” in my meeting. It went “smashingly” as you Brits like to say. 🙂

    I was wondering where you sold the travel certificate you got for signing up for the Amex card. It seems that Ebay is cracking down on the resale of items like this.
