Ok, so I am all about saving money for the fam.. I only buy on sale (most of the time).. Today I bought my 3 yo an entire wardrobe consisting of 22 pieces for $120 (shirts and pants for fall)! I buy my groceries based on the best possible price. That's why I have joined Grocery Game
. For those of you not geeky enough to know what Grocery game is, here it is in a nutshell: If you compare the store sales with the available (unexpired) coupons plus add double coupon days.. you get jelly for $0.25/jar! (Example) Well, there is a service that does this for you for a nominal fee. At the Grocery Game, Teri compiles lists (based on the stores you frequent) of what is a super good buy this week. You end up saving oodles and oodles of money. (I save about $400/mo. AND have more food than ever before.) Oh and FYI- there is a free version called Coupon Mom
, but I don't care for it as much. I do use it for Walmart lists though.
This got me thinking.. What if someone came up with the same sort of thing for yarn and knitting supplies? Created a website that listed the best possible deals on needles, notions, and yarns per store... Wouldn't that be awesome?!
