It's Tax Time

Do you feel comfortable doing your own taxes? I have always done mine using an online service (Turbo Tax or TaxAct). Thanks to Craig, I have been notified about an awesome TurboTax deal. If you meet the income qualifications you can file both your state and federal taxes online for free here. Most online sites charge $15 to $20 for this. In order to qualify you must have an Adjusted Gross Income of $30K or less, be active duty military with an income of $58K or less, or you must qualify for Earned Income Credit.

Bath & Body Works!

Head on over here to print a coupon for 20% off any purchase of $25 or more at Bath and Body Works. There are still some items from their semi-annual sale that are 75% off. Combine those with this coupon and score big! You can also use the code "SPRINGTIME50" to receive the same savings online. Stock up on products you can give as gifts throughout the year or grab items for yourself!

Photo Gift Idea

Now through January 18th, The Walgreens Photo Center is offering $10 off of a $20 photo order. They offer a variety of products that would make great gift ideas (mugs, wall decor, posters, and photo books). Also you can pick your order up in store to save money by not paying for shipping.

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, I will keep you guys updated with any more frugal gift that ideas I come across! 

No clipping? You can still save!

Want to save money and start couponing but feel like you have no time? This one is for you, my friend! Put down those scissors. Today, I am going to explain a few of the easiest way to use digital coupons. I am sure many of you lead extremely busy lives. When living a busy life, it can be hard to find time to even pick up the Sunday paper. You definitely don't have time to clip coupons, organize them, and remember to take them to the store. This is why printable coupons and loyalty card coupons are so convenient and perfect for you to utilize! 

If you know what you are planning to buy at the store, you can head to SmartSource or to print coupons that match the items already on your shopping list. The majority of the coupons you will find on these sites are manufacturer coupons which are not store specific and can be redeemed at almost any store. Great news! 

Another easy way to save, without having to clip or print, is to load coupons onto your store store specific loya…

Happy Frugal New Year

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I have decided that there is no better time than now to start enriching the world with my frugal living knowledge.

I can't teach everyone individually but I will do my best to fill up this blog with simple tips, tricks, and solutions to live life in a less expensive manner. Let's make 2014 the most budget-friendly year yet!
