On a hunt to find and share ideas to live more frugally without giving up living.

Do you have a Big Lots?
I love Big Lots! We find great deals on lots of things! If you have one near you, go here and sign up for the Buzz Club. They will email you the weekly ads, but best of all, periodically you receive 20% off coupons and invitations to "Friends and Family" days, where you get 20% off your entire order of already great priced items!
I received in invitation for the Friends and Family day, today, from 5-9pm, and all you have to do is scan your card to get 20% off your entire order. (If you sign up on line, you give your phone number and pick up a card when you check out and have it scanned right then.) Or, I can print a 20% off coupon for all day tomorrow. (I THINK if you sign up today you can get it.)
Big Lots is my best source for cannning jars for $7/case for all sizes. With the 20% off, I will only pay $5.60/case! I will be stocking up tomorrow for my jam-making in the Fall.
Big Lots carries lots of brand name stuff and it is the first place we head to shop for toys for the grandbabies for Christmas. Yeah!
We have even bought furniture there. Our best purchase: our queen sized sleigh bed for $300 that we got for only $240 with a 20% off coupon! We later saw the same bed at a furniture store for $1000!!
(I was not asked to post this and get nothing for doing it. Just wanted to share a great store with my friends.)
I am married to the man of my dreams and we are happy empty nesters. I have always loved looking for deals and have found that since our kids moved out, we have a LOT more money thanks to my deal hunting. So I keep doing it.
I love reading other blogs and finding new, and old, ideas on saving money and making life better.
The best part of "blog world" is all the fabulous, funny, witty, people I have found!
