So how bout posting some of your best tips for saving. I know some were posted in the intro thread, but thought it would be nice to have everyone post theirs here.
-I buy clothes for the kids seasons ahead of time at the end of season clearance. If I find a great deal i may get similar items in many sizes. I've gotten full outfits for Anthony for $1 on walmarts clearance, sure they're not designer clothes, but they're cute and great for days we're hanging out at home.
- I buy the Thursday/sunday newspaper, because those are the days all the flyers are in, then have a big deep freezer so I can stock up on groceries. 1 of the stores nearby has a buy 1 get 2 free sale on a lot of meats and frozen items that we use, so i buy a ton and it lasts forever.
- I also shop on the clearance rack at the grocery store for boxed and canned goods and stock up on stuff like cereal and canned items during really good sales.
-I shop craigslist for toys and kids clothes, sometimes you can get great deals, they also have a free section that I LOVE.
