$5 Off a New Crock-Pot During Crocktober

It’s Crocktober–or October and a month when it’s a good time to buy yourself a new Crock-Pot slow cooker. Why? Because the makers of Crock-Pot, the original slow cooker, are offering you $5 off when you purchase a new Crock-Pot costing more than $24.50. You get that $5 via a mail-in rebate. You can access that rebate and check out new Crock-Pots to purchase via this link to Crocktober Deals on Amazon. You’ve heard me talk about how great Stephanie O’Dea’s blog A Year of Slowcooking is for getting you into slow cooking. Thanks to her I use one...

Guest Post: Shop for a Cure

(This month marks the 27th annual National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Meant to promote awareness of a disease that impacts far too many of us, October has also become a time when a number of companies focus their charitable efforts on funding breast cancer research and education. That’s why I’m running this guest post from Andrea Pyros, a freelance writer and mother of two who lives in New York’s Hudson Valley, courtesy of RetailMeNot.com) You can help out with the dollars you spend, when you Shop for the Cure, at the following retailers.

Win a VISA Prepaid Gift Card

I normally don’t cover contests but this one seemed like too much fun not to share here. The idea behind the Visa Prepaid Everyday Tips for Everyone Contest is this: “Like” Visa Prepaid on Facebook and share a tip that makes your daily life easier. Tips can be about anything from how to stay on top of deals (of course you’ll suggest subscribing to Suddenly Frugal, right?) to how to save money on groceries. Others will vote on the tips they like the most, and then each week Visa will give away gift cards–four $50 Visa Gift cards every...

Wireless Cell Phone Survey

I’m curious to find out how the frugal folks that read Suddenly Frugal handle their wireless cell phone accounts. Currently, we have four people on a family plan, with no Smartphones, and I think we’re paying too much. Do you use a family plan? Have you made the transition to Smartphones? If so, what are you paying? Please take the survey below. It will open in a pop-up window on top of this blog post. Unfortunately, the survey didn’t allow for me to ask which carrier you use, so I hope you’ll post a comment below to let me...

Crock-Pot Round Up

Each October  Stephanie O’Dea over at A Year of Slow Cooking declares it to be “Crocktober.” I figured in the spirit of Crocktober that I would revisit some of my earlier posts on how I’ve used my Crock-Pot or slow cooker to cook for my family on a budget. My slow cooker was especially important when I was cooking without a kitchen during our home renovation. (Here is a link to a Home Goes Strong story I wrote on newfangled Crock-Pot products.) Here are some of my favorite Crock-Pot recipes–many of which I still have in heavy rotation! French...
