Thursday Rituals

With the economic times being so difficult these days, we are trying very hard to cut back and save every penney.
We cut back on our home phone, no more called ID, no long distance, no call waiting - just a plain phone. We also cut back on cable. We cut back on our internet. AND we cut our minutes and luxuries on our cell phone. We don't go out as often...
Now every Thursday I have the same ritual. I look through the new weekly BOGO sales in my grocery store, make my grocery list and then go to town searching for coupons online.
My favorite website is coupons.com and Fiddledeedee. I love those 2 because they are so helpful and are very user friendly.
Last week after they totaled up my grocery bill, I proudly handed the cashier my stack of coupons and saved $10 just in coupons. I was sooo excited.
There are a ton of other websites that can be very helpful out there. What do you use for coupon clipping? How are you saving money?

I love, love, love your ideas on ways to save money through those two great online resources.

I find that looking through my local ads and even junk mail I've been able to save money through whatever offers are there that week.

If I am ordering on line, I will google a search for that company and coupons to see if I might qualify for free shipping or a discount, sometimes I am lucky and get both.

Keep it up and I will definitely check back. I rarely can find buy one get one unless it's buy one get one half off.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

We started cutting back and spending less when I got laid off last year.
Now that I am back to work, we still live on less and are paying bills off quickly!!
I love coupons!

great idea! i tend to choose supremarket own brand stuff now over brand named foods as they generally i find have less crud in them, and they're massively cheaper... im my local supermarket they allow you to scan your shopping whilst you shop which is SOOOOOOOOOO handy in knowing what you're totting up so i can rely on that heavily, although they have been broken for the past few weeks :(

We don't have a house phone at all, we just use our cell phones. Unfortunately, most of the websites for coupon clipping don't have coupons for the stores near me. :(

I had a similar blog post here ~ http://studiohaus.blogspot.com/2009/11/thrifty-thursdays-sites-that-save.html

I also agree with loving coupons.com! I try to use it as often as I can : 0
