Need Extra Money?

Three years ago I decided to start a preschool. I decided it was the perfect solution for me. I could still be home with my kidlets, while earning extra money. It has definitely been a blessing to our family, and something that I've enjoyed! It was perfect - just a couple hours a day, a few days a week. I could still do all the mommy things I had always done, and I didn't have to worry about the huge time/energy commitment of daycare.

One of the downfalls to starting out from scratch is that I had to do just that. And I didn't have anyone to coach me through it. So I bought A LOT of stuff as I tried to decide on curriculum I would use and the format of my day. In the end, I think I've only used about 25% of what I purchased. It really would have been nice to have someone just tell me exactly what to do to get started!

Well, now I have! One (local) mommy (and fellow Fabulessly Frugal reader), who is a preschool teacher herself, has a website with videos that teaches mommys (like you and me) how to start a preschool - in their very own home! I truly wish I had something like this when I got started three years ago! I think it would have saved me a LOT of MONEY and TIME!

If this is something you're thinking about doing, then you've got to go check out her website and sign up for the FREE 60-minute DVD that shares all her secrets!!

Fabulessly Frugal Friday: Save an Extra $50 a Month Week 3

I told you about this Fabulous book by Robert G Allen, "Multiple Streams of Income."

I told you about this Fabulous book by Robert G Allen, "Multiple Streams of Income."In his book he highlights 50 Ways to Save $50 a Month. For the next few weeks on Fab Frug Friday we are going to share all 50 ways and give you our two cents about each one!
This is week 3, numbers 21-30. If you missed last weeks #1-10 check it out here! Wanna catch up on #11-20?

21. Free up space in your mailbox, cancel that magazine subscription you never read.
Check out our freebie section on the blog to get FREE magazines instead.
Here are a couple:
COVER Magazine - America's Source for Wholesale Merchandise, is the leading business magazine for independent retail store owners, wholesalers, distributors and closeout buyers.Click Here
Total Landscape Care - an industry news magazine for green industry and landscaping professionals.Click Here

22. Watch a parade or have a picnic, free entertainment is often the best.
The newspaper is a great source to find out about local free events!

23. Turn your car into a "chat room." Carpool to work.

Traveling is always more fun with friends, plus you can cut coupons when it is your friends turn to drive. :)

24. Join the "bus crowd" and avoid cab fare.
Cabs are very expensive and bus fares are really inexpensive!

25. Buy airline tickets in advance, and always stay through Saturday. You'll have more fun and it's a lot cheaper, too!

26. Quit that health club, join the local gym instead.
If you want to work out at home your library is a great source for work out videos.

27. "COUPONS" & "DOUBLE COUPON DAYS." Enough said.
Do I really need to say anything? Check out some of our shopping trips if you need a little more convincing.

28. What is in a name? Buy generic instead.
I used to mostly buy generic because it is less expensive. Since couponing though I find that my stockpile is full of brand name things I got for Free or cheap. When I do not have a coupon deal, I go for the generic brand though!

29. Skip the paper towels, wash your cloth ones instead!
Unless you can get them for FREE with a coupon of course!

30. Watch out for "convenience" foods, they're expensive and not as healthy for you anyway.
Stock up on convenience food when they are on a great coupons deal and them hide them away for SPECIAL occasions. IE parities, road trips ect!

You can get your own FREE copy of "Multiple Streams of Income"

OR you can purchase Multiple Streams of Income: How to Generate a Lifetime of Unlimited Wealth! Second Edition at Amazon.com

Couponing in Cali

I have been visiting my family in Cali this week. Haven't you all missed me? Just wanted to share my Wags deal from Saturday night. Sorry you can not do it, but it is a fun story!
I realized that thanks to Crissie I had 15 coupons for the $1 off 2 Mars Candy Bars, and that they were going to expire Sunday Aug 23rd. So after dinner on Saturday night I had my Aunt take me on a Wags run. Walgreens had an in ad coupon to get Mars Candy bars for .49 each.
I found out from the checker that the system was not limiting you to 6 candy bars and that you did not need the coupon to get the .49 price. So I picked up 28 candy bars and a Sharpie marker also for .49. BTW they had lots on the shelf!
28 Snickers/Twix @.49
1 Sharpie @.49
=14.21 + .04 tax on the Sharpie. No tax on food in Cali!
Used 14 $1/2 Coupons
Saved $14
Final Price: .25 for 28 candy bars and 1 Sharpie Marker!

I had so much fun trying to get my family to guess how much I paid for the bag of candy bars. It was fun to see my cousins, uncles, aunts, brothers, sister, parents and grandparents all excited about couponing. They were shocked to hear that it was only .25. I was even a little surprised because I forgot that CA does not have food tax. I had to explain to everyone that I bought a sharpie to absorb my overage because Walgreens will not pay you to shop there. I had to show them the receipt because some of them just could not wrap their head around it. I remember feeling like that. If I could do it again I would buy the .33 carmel, then I would only have paid .05.
Sorry I did not have the pic to show you all, but they ate them so quickly I did not get a chance!

POST CEREAL re-post!

**Just thought I'd repost this deal for those of you who missed out on it last time, or who didn't quite get it - leave your Q's if you have em!**

Are you ready to stock up on your Honey Bunches of Oats? (It's my fams fave cereal!!)

Right now Post cereal is on sale for $2.50/box. BUT - when you purchase 4, they will ring at $1.50/box!

THEN - use your $1.00/2 coupon (found in the 7/26 Smart Source), and get your Post Honey Bunches of Oats for only $1.00 each!

Sweeten the deal and wait until you've got a doubler (they'll be in Sunday's paper), and then get your 4 boxes of cereal for only $2.00 - that's $.50 each! (my personal price point!).

There is also a $2/1 printable for Post Honey Bunches of Oats with Pecan Crunches!


2 boxes of Honey Bunches of Oats
2 boxes of Honey Bunches of Oats with Pecan Crunches
- $4.00 (2 - Pecan Crunches coupons (you may have to print from two different computers))
- $1.00 (1 - HBO $1/2)
- $1.00 DOUBLE $1/2 coupon


Would you like to make a little money on POST SELECTS??

Here's how!!

$6.00 (wyb 4 Boxes Post Selects (any variety))
- $2.00 (2 - $1/2 from 7/26 Smart Source)
- $2.00 (using two doublers found in 8/16 ad)
$2.00 OOP

THEN receive $3 in catalinas to use as your own stash of Albertsons "cash" you can use on anything! It's like you just made $1 when purchasing 4 boxes of cereal!

If you don't have doublers, or want to do this deal sooner, you'll end up paying just $4.00 oop (out of pocket), and you'll still get $3.00 back... still a great deal on cereal!

The catalina offer that is running 8/14-9/6 is as follows:
Buy (2) & Get $1 OYNSO
Buy (3) & Get $2
Buy (4) or More & Get $3
(Thanks PYP!)

(So if you purchase 8 boxes, you'll still ONLY get a $3 catalina... so just do 4 at a time for the Selects!)

Last Minute Doubler Idea at Albertsons

If you still have doublers to use, Albertsons has 10-pack boxes of Snyder's single serve pretzels for $2.99. Use a $1/1 Snyders coupon and double it and they will be $.99. Sorry I can't give you the date on the coupon, my husband is literally waiting for me so we can leave and he thinks I'm getting my shoes...lol. But I'm serious. This is a great snack for school lunches, etc. And what a great price!
