I have been living my FRUGAL LIFE doing everything I can that "makes cents" in Anjie's World.... everyone knows that I use discounts, clubs, coupons, sales, thrift, DIY, support local, enter sweeps, mystery shop, barter, etc to make my life as full as I can
and continue my WORK HARD = PLAY HARD mantra.
CARPE DEIM .....
THRIFTING and EBAY have sparked my recent interest
Thanks to my Friend , Jason , that pointed out a few things
to me at a local Thrift store... RIGHT NOW ... EBAY has a FREE LISTING DEAL
and I am ON IT!
One of my favorite things to do is to combine .... coupons with Gift Certificates , especially if you earn getting the gift certificate. I am a member of several sources that sell you GIFT CERTIFICATES at less the amount that is listed on them. Stay tuned to my FRUGAL PAGE on FB & sign up for email notifications here to get in as soon as I post them so that they do not go away. I also collect GC from my Credit Cards (points for GC) , sweepstakes, Search to Win and more. I talk about them RIGHT HERE and on FB so that you too can CASH IN! Longhorn had a FREE Appetizer coupon if you signed up for their AP ... we did that and combined with GC to eat, drink and take home some goodies... now thats a HOME RUN DEAL! you too can CASH IN ... follow me! (no worries I don't eat like this ALL of the time, scroll down for some healthier options!)
Shop the RIGHT stores! Shop the stores that offer QUALITY for discount prices! I recently (yesterday) got the items photographed above and wrote about it on ANJIES WORLD check out the post on how I got all of what you see for FREE. As unintended as it was, it was very welcomed! Sign up for notices from that blog as well for a little bit of "this" and a little bit of "that."
HEALTHY AT A DISCOUNT? everyone says that in order to eat more healthy , you have to spend more money, right? If you have been following along I have been trying boxed meals and reviewing them. This one was reviewed on ANJIES WORLD and is my newest venture. I love love love the Curry Styled Soup and the Smoothies that have helped me to eat healthier... get 3 free with your order RIGHT NOW ... thats the offer I signed up with!
Other Savings for FEBRUARY:
MYSTERY SHOPS : 5 recent shops for some ALMOST free meals, can't beat that !

Barter: Bartered : photographed a Wedding in February for Martial Arts lessons for my Grandson !

Budget Payments: with the extreme weather in the USA our utility bills .... well they vary hugely.... I have my electricity set up to be the "same" every month and now my gas too (its a phone call) and poof , its done!
NO TRASH PICK UP : we take our own trash to the dump , free..... this is one bill that I would opt to pay if I were rich ... but for now we take our own. Composting the "live" stuff and burning leaves (allowed in our county)
LEARNING: drying flowers now for a REALLY COOL DIY project that I hope "pans out" stay tuned for more on this!!!
