Jan 15. I had a pay-it-forward post last month on my blog. I made three aprons to send to the bloggers that signed up to also do a pay-it-forward. I found the pattern for the half apron online, I already had the flapper apron pattern as well as all the fabric. So the only cost to me for this fun giveaway was the postage.
Jan 16. I got a $5 coupon for Glucerna cereal in the mail. I find freebie sign ups on the forums at www.Slickdeals.net
Jan 17. Match up coupons with sales for maximum savings. Food Pyramid has Farmland bacon on sale for $2.50. I used $2 coupons that were in the Sunday paper 2 weekends ago and that brought the price down to just 50 cents.
