Who doesn't love a freebie?

Confession: I'm an avid grocery coupon clipper and comparison shopper...aka the person you hate to stand behind in line at the check-out. My apologies, but I {love} it when I can save a few bucks, and I love a good freebie even more! Tell me I'm not alone. :) So here's a freebie for you...

I get the Grocery Shrink e-newsletter each week, and it is filled with great recipes and tips/ideas for being frugal. This week she is offering her Slow and Savory Suppers crock-pot cookbook as a {free download through this weekend only}. Nice, huh?! It includes a whole month's worth--that's 31!-- of yummy, healthy recipes that won't break the bank.  And don't you love crock-pot cooking...makes making homemade so much easier.  I'm looking forward to trying some of her dishes soon.

And speaking of saving $...If you shop online at all, then you have GOT to start using ! Instead of making your purchases through the retailer's website, you simply link to the website through and you can receive anywhere from 1-30% CASH BACK on your purchase.  They keep track of your purchases and once you rack up at least $20 in cash back, they send you a check.  They say there's no such thing as free money, but I haven't found any "strings attached" yet!  The way I look at it, if you are going to be making the purchase any way (like the multiple textbooks we just had to buy), you might as well earn a few bucks back.  We linked up to and earned 6% cash back on our textbook purchases which equaled $14.19! is partnered with thousands of stores, from clothing stores like Gap to photo websites like Snapfish, to Home Depot & Office Depot, and pretty much anywhere else you can think of.  Genious, I think.  Check it out.  

Happy saving and don't forget to check out the Grocery Shrink and her free cookbook! :)

I love saving too but do not put enough time into coupons yet to capitilize on all the possibilities... working on it though.
