494499_piggy_bank_-_dollarIf you’ve noticed lately, I’ve started to post more of the spur of the moment deals on facebook and have focused my blog posts more on money saving strategies. (You might have noticed my recent DIY series or some of the fun activities my son and I have been taking part in.) This is more a result of convenience that anything. I want to pass along the good deals immediately, but I don’t always have time to log on and write up a post. I do most of my writing at night or when the baby is sleeping, so that allows me time to get more in-depth…it just isn’t as timely as daily deals require. So, for now, keep an eye on the facebook page for hot deals, and check here for more ways to cut your budget.

I’ll start today with a list of some of my favorite money saving posts:

“Oh, The Places You’ll Go” End of School-Year Tradition

It’s not too much longer till the school year comes to a close, so I wanted to share this amazing idea I found on…you guessed it…Pinterest. You all know the book Oh, The Places You’ll Go from Dr. Seuss. It’s a great graduation gift. But, Lisa from Lisa’s Workshop suggests grabbing a copy when your kid is young. At the end of each school year, give it to your child’s teacher to sign or write a note. When you’re child graduates (hard to think of!), you’ll have a lovely gift to give him/her. Lisa has even included some lovely tags in her blog post, so make sure to go check it out.

For more clever ideas like this, make sure to follow me on Pinterest.
