EXPIRED: Get a Free Subscription to American Baby

When I was pregnant with my daughters and after they were born, American Baby magazine was my go-to resource for early parenting information. Luckily, I could get the magazine for free at the ob office and also at the pediatrician’s office. But if I wasn’t going to the doctor on a regular basis, I wasn’t getting my magazine. If you’d like to get a copy mailed to you and then you won’t have to rely on/remember to pick it up when you take your kids for their well checks or a sick visit, you can use this affiliate link...

Freebie Heaven: 7 Ways to Find the Best Free Stuff

As you know every Friday I put together Suddenly Frugal’s Freebie Friday roundup to let you know where you can go in the coming days or weeks to get free food or free stuff. Additionally, whenever a major holiday rolls around, I do a separate post on freebies related to that day–Mother’s Day Freebies, Earth Day Freebies, and more. (Right now I’m finishing up a piece on Father’s Day Freebies.) Basically, when it comes to getting something for nothing, I’m all for it–because free is my favorite price.” So given my obsession with freebies, it’s no wonder that a...

5th Anniversary Flashback

Yesterday was Suddenly Frugal’s 5th anniversary, and I just remembered that today.

I started this blog because, suddenly, our family had to live frugally, after life threw us a financial curve ball. Here is a snippet from what I wrote in that first post:

Here is a link to my FOX 25 in Boston segment on the 5 ways you can save $500 a month. Thanks for watching! As an addendum I just discovered that my information about Staples ink recycling is wrong.

Get Wax Out of Clothing

Last fall our area was hit with both Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. In less than a month’s time, we’d lost power for days on end. Once the sun went down, we needed candles to light our way. While we were careful never to leave the candles unattended, lest we risk a fire, at one point we had so many candles going that knocking some over was inevitable. Which is what happened one evening as we were closing up for the night. It wasn’t until the next morning, when we were in daylight once again, that I was...

Party Invitation Infographic

Cool infographic about invitations, courtesy of Staples, in time for party season. While it explains the origin of RSVP, it does not mention the percentage of people who refuse to RSVP to invitations, a pet peeve of mine. I’m guessing the current non-RSVP rate is about 75%!
