I know lately I have been talking a lot about money, saving, selling stuff to make it, etc. I hope you are enjoying it. I started last week writing a new ebook. It will be offered on this site. It chronicles this journey of mine and will give you all the details on my efforts and how I intend on getting out of the hole I am in. If you are new and haven’t even heard about “the hole” be sure to check out my Gofundme page.
So, many of you who are my writing friends will be happy to hear I am working on a book. It’s non-fic, self-help too, so it will have a wide appeal.
Weekend Wrapup and Couponing
The garage sale over the weekend was a much bigger success than I expected. Those of you who follow me on Facebook probably laughed until you cried over my nearly hourly reports on how much money I was making.
It ended up netting me $100 which I spent on groceries and gas in my car. (I also bought us lunch on Saturday and dinner on Sunday night – my hubby deserved to be treated for all the hard work he did). There is even money left over thanks to couponing, which you all should be doing. I never thought about couponing before (well, I didn’t have to!).
If you want to try it out for yourself to cut your food bill, try these apps that I downloaded to my iPhone:
Ibotta (also has a website)
Food Coupons – this is an app for iPhone on the app store…it lists restaurants in your area and gives you all their deals for the day, week, and ongoing. I ended up emailing myself sheets of coupons for Krystal and Burger King. Good deals for two people to eat cheap. Does not have a website that I can find.
Coupons.com has great grocery coupons and they are printable. I saved on cereal, and food items. My grocery trip this week was UNDER $50 !!
So, that’s about it. Hope your day flies by – I will be back with more ideas for saving money or making money soon. If you know something about couponing, leave me a comment with the info.
