News in coupons!

Yes, late breaking news in coupons!  There are several late breaking news stories in the world of coupons.

This just in....Fry's Grocery Stores are now taking competitors coupons!  Yes, you heard me right, even the competitors coupons that print off at the register.  They are also reading all manufacturers coupons under a dollar as if they are a $1.

This just in...are you tired of getting the newspaper just for the coupons?  There is a new website where you can print off the coupons you want or even load them to your grocery card!

And one final late breaking story....there is a new website called Groupon where you can purchase with others and save 50% to 75%.  You simply bid on a purchase, whatever you are willing to pay and if enough other people bid on that item you all get it for the same price.  If no one else bids you will not be charged.

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day, and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I didn't consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I'm normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. We succeed in changing some of our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming. You can read my full bio on my About Me page.
