school supplies for the frugal at heart

via for the love of 4 blog

on my family bog i spoke about school shopping. i am one of those moms who does not like leaving things to last min. so the day the supplies were put out i went shopping making sure i had all i needed to choose from. i had a plan of making sure i had enough supplies for my oldest {6} for first grade and enough for a supply at home. i wanted to make sure i as well had the few things i need for homeschool for two other of my children {5 & 2}that would be homeschooled this school year. having my list from last year, the school list for this year and the recommended list from the school, i was ready to go. i had a budget of $50 and truly wanted to come under it.

here are a list of the supplies that i have gotten:
one folder, 3 packs of paper, 2 comp books,2 pencil boxes, 12 folders, 12 glue stick packs(2 each pack), 8 Elmer glue, 1 pencil sharpener, 3 washable markers, 4 color pencils, 10 boxes of crayons, 1 thin marker, 3 scissors, 1 pack 50 erasers, 2 calculators, 2 packs of 10 pencils, big box of craft foam fun, foam organizer, pack foam boards and foam markers. there are a few things i could not get in the photo and those are 2 back packs, 1 lunch box, hair band storage and school work storage.

total amount spent for this shopping trip was around $45. this was accomplished with coupons, price matching and bogo. i stuck to my list and planed out what i knew i would need and didnt buy anything else. there were things that i had to skip name brand because of the price. there were somethings due to how i shopped that made the name brands a better price.

when you go school shopping here is what you need to do to keep it frugal and within your budget.

- make a budget for each child you will be shopping for
- make a list of supplies need for each grade and how many of each
- go now, dont wait till the week before school things wont go on sale any more then what they are now
- stick to you list and try to go with out your children. they will always want the cool looking things instead of   the price efficient items
- make sure you  have all the coupons and price matching ready to go when checking out.
- make sure you have enough for the whole school year. half way through will be way more expensive.

happy shopping and i hope you have found some helpful tips here.

frugal in a book - pick another check out lane honey

Via- For the love of 4 book review

{{save BIG money & make the grocery aisle your catwalk}}

so i found the website THE KRAZY COUPON LADY and fell in love. i use to use the grocery game to do my couponing but found it didnt work for me. i looked through this site and found some many things that were so helpful. then i seen there was a book and well i got all happy and warm inside. your probably thinking really?? well yes. i am striving to do my part in saving for my family and helping to make the hard earned money my hubs brings home last longer. by no means are we poor but by no means are we rich.

so i figured i would go to the book store and pick it up so i wouldnt have to wait for it to be shipped to me. the store didnt have a copy, it took three days. when i spoke to them they said it was $13.99 i thought great. when i went to go pick it up it was $20 and i got a little upset(way cheaper on there site by the way $11.99 so get it from there!!). i never pay that much for a book no matter how helpful i think it is going to be. but i did this time and let me tell you how happy i am that i did!! buy it here, link to there site.

so i finally had a chance to site and read this book basically from cover to cover. i was able to do this during nap time. great read let me tell ya. i learned many things from this book and feel that if you will be using coupons then you need to get this book for your self. it is well worth the money and it is well worth the time to read it.

some of the things i learned,
-when to use a coupon
-stock piling
-store policies
-online coupon sites
-why its good to do it!!

so ladies, go out and get a copy. this is a stay at home mom who doesnt charge more then the price of the book for what she shares. this is a mom who wants to help us save.i hope you take the time to learn the way i just have. i thought i had it down pack saving $100 plus a week but i look forward to the savings that i will get once i starting using the tips that was just given to me.

shop at sams for free


Sam's Club is letting non-members shop the store for three days in early August.

The program hasn't been announced to the public yet, but Sam's Club spokeswoman Susan Koehler tells WalletPop that stores will host an open house August 6,7 and 8 and "basically try us for free."

Of course membership is guaranteed, so anyone could essentially buy a membership, shop and then request a refund. But for those shoppers less interested in subterfuge, the open house provides an opportunity to stock up on small business supplies, household staples, electronics, food items, and school supplies. "The last time we did that was for Sam's 25th anniversary in 2008," Koehler says.

Memberships start at $35, but free is even better. If only for a few days.
