Get Up to 50% Off Tickets

I know how it is when you are living frugally–you rarely treat yourself to a night out at the movies or for a show, because you can’t justify the expense. I know that we tend to rent a movie on demand, and pop our popcorn at home for a cheap night of entertainment at home. If we do splurge on a movie, we’ll go for the matinee. But what if you could find ways to get tickets on the cheap for those nights out? When I started my Philly on the Cheap blog last year, I developed a relationship...

Coupons for Coffee Savings

During my series of summer savings tour, during which I am visiting TV and radio stations across the country, I have been sharing my five ways to put $500 back in your budget. Three of those tips are food related–brew your coffee at home, switch to a refillable water bottle, and pack your lunch. Believe it or not, of those three tips, coffee is the one that provides the biggest savings. As I’ve mentioned in my interviews, the average American is drinking three cups of coffee at day, at about $2 a pop. And $2 is cheap, if you...

Entertainment Books on Sale

Even though 2012 is half way over, you still have plenty of time to get good use out of a 2012 Entertainment Book. I have said time and time again that with one, maybe two discounted purchases, you more than make up the initial cost of purchasing an Entertainment Book. We always buy two Entertainment Books, and then keep one in each of our cars. That way if we are going to the mall, to a restaurant, or somewhere where we could possibly use a coupon, we have an Entertainment Book at the ready. Right now you can get...

Get $4 Off at CVS

You’ve heard me wax poetic before about my extreme couponing at CVS. Well now CVS is helping me accomplish even bigger savings. Between July 15th and July 18th, you can get a $4 coupon, off $20 spent, just by scanning your CVS Extra Care card at the coupon kiosk in the store. I visited CVS today, and everyone in the world must have been scanning their cards, because it took forever for the coupons to print out. But then I thought that the $4 off $20 coupon wasn’t there, until I found it was the very last coupon to...

Dollar Store Deals

My mother in law swears by her local dollar stores. It is where, on her pensioners budget, she was able to stock up on coloring books and crayons for my daughters when they came to visit. Most recently she has discovered that her local dollar store is a great place to pick up inexpensive packs of tissues, which I tuck in my daughters’ backpacks, and number two pencils that are always handy when it comes to standardized tests. (When you have kids in high school like I do, your kids take a lot of standardized tests–SAT, ACT, AP Exams,...

Penny Deals are Back at Staples

Penny deals are back at Staples, and as the mother of two school-aged children, I couldn’t be happier. Ever since my daughters started school, I have been able to stock up on school supplies without spending a lot of money by taking advantage of Staples’ penny deals. (I mention Staples because that is the office supply store closest to me. I’m sure other stores offer similar deals.) Each summer Staples advertises its penny deals in its Sunday circular, and usually limits what is on sale for a penny to a few select items. Each week those items change.
