Cut your Brillo/SOS pads before using

With a lot of easier to clean surfaces and pots/pans, I don't need a Brillo pad very often. It gets all rusty and gooey with soap before its next use. So now I cut the pad into fourths and just use a small piece and toss it. Since I buy them at the Dollar store and there's 10 in a box, each section costs about 2.5.

Grocery Gift Cards to Me!

I learned from the government shutdown that a sudden pay loss can be crippling to a family. When the dust settled and the paychecks resumed I bought a gift card from the grocery stores I frequent. Each week I add $10 to one of them. Should an emergency occur, I have some back up to be able to feed my family.

Promo Code for Restaurant.com . . . get 70% off!

Through Labor Day use the promo code SAVORY at restaurant.com and you'll get 70% off. I just purchased a $25 GC to Shula's for $4.50. Be sure any restrictions are okay for you. I got my promo code from retailmenot.com. I never checkout on any website without checking for promo codes there first.

Dollar savings - one $ bill at a time

Whenever I get a dollar bill, I look to see what big letter is displaying. If that letter is an initial in my name (first, last or middle) I "reserve" it and put it in a money jar. You would be surprised at how much you can save this way in a year's time!
