  1. Hi Sarah, I’m new to your blog and spent a couple of hours one day devouring your archives. I’m a fan! I shared this post on Twitter and will link to it tomorrow on my blog. Great stuff.

  2. I do most of my shopping online as well. Unless it’s a last minute purchase, usually I just buy it online using Ebates to get cash back. Another thing that saves us money is evaluating our budget every 2 months. Every two months we go through our budget and see if there are any areas we can reduce or if we don’t need that part of our budget anymore. We’ve cut hundreds from our budget by doing this.

    • That’s great Lindsey. Continually looking for ways to save is definitely a great idea; I totally agree. I love that you do that! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  3. This is such an extensive list! I love all of your frugal home decor ideas. I find myself frequenting thrift shops and flea markets more and more because I just can’t make myself pay full price. Your furniture upcycling board on Pinterest is right up my alley 🙂

    • It really would Lisa. I love my Paypal debit card. I have almost all my bills set up to automatically come off of it, so I earn cash back (1%) on all my monthly bills, shopping, etc…it adds up. Better than a savings account interest rate, I tell ya that! 🙂
