If you haven't tried Vocalpoint, you might want to sign up at this site. They are going to pay me $75.00 to open my mail for 6 days and write in a journal about it. I open my mail everyday now for free! They have also sent me free coupons or large coupons for products to try.

Spending My Money Twice

I like to spend my money twice. Let me tell you what I mean. I went to Walgreens last Friday. I'm on the Walgreens email list and got a coupon for $5.00 off of $20.00 purchase. I also had the Walgreens flyer in my car. I had a coupon to get the already on sale for $1.00 Pringles for $0.79, the regularly priced $0.79 and candy bars for $0.39. I also got 2 twelve packs of toilet paper which had a $2.00 rebate in the Walgreens supersaver and a bottle of calcium pills for $5.99 which I will get my purchase price back with the supersaver.

By the time I was finished I had $30.43 cents worth of merchandise. After coupons and rebates I paid $14.33. I get to spend the $16.10 I would have spent over again. The only thing I purchased which I might not have normally purchased was the calcium pills. With 3 females in my family and the fact I got the full purchase price back, I felt it was worth buying.

I know people do much better than this on their shopping trips. When you consider the time I have available to devote to my 'spending money twice' hobby I am very satisfied with my savings.
Till Next Time,

I hope to be able to share tips I have acquired being a single mom and raising a child with autism and a large family. Being in a family with a member with a disability has it's own techniques to learn. Being in a large family has budgeting considerations. I plan to combine both of these viewpoints in posts to come.
