I stumbled on a few interesting money-saving tips while surfing the web this week:
I shared this post on my Facebook Page this week. Karrie from Happy Money Saver shared how she paid for some very expensive chicken at Walmart. I definitely want to try this experiment next time I buy boneless chicken!
On this healthcare savings post, I discovered GoodRX.com. On this site, you can search for the lowest prescription prices in your area and also find coupons.
A few months ago we purchased an EpiPen for our younger son which cost us almost $300. Curious to see if I could find a lower price, I searched on this site and discovered a $100 coupon that I could have used toward the purchase of the EpiPen! The site also gives other helpful information. I found that a generic EpiPen may be available in 2015, which will help lower the cost of the drug. I will definitely be using this site before buying any prescriptions.
Here's how we saved this week:
The boys enjoyed the free hay maze and sheep dog demonstration at the Pumpkin Festival.
I was given a container of pesto at the deli of the grocery store.
At another store I was one of the first 50 customers and was given a free loaf of bread.
My husband brought home a handful of gallon sized zipper bags that were going to be thrown away at work. He brought them home and I used a few of them to pack Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes (soap and candy have to be doubled bagged separately from other items).
I bought gifts from Amazon with gift cards I earned from Swagbucks.com. They were delivered in two days thanks to a free 3-month trial of Amazon Mom.
I bought a whole chicken for $.99/lb., carrots for $.40/lb. and found more great cereal deals. My husband loves sausage and I couldn't resist buying ground sausage on sale with a coupon for $1.50/lb.
