New venture

I've wanted to give this a try for some time and now as I sit here, "what should I write?" I'd like to make this blog a helpful tool for all of us. I'm not sure if you would call me frugal or a cheapskate, but I love to find good deals and save money. Whether it is clipping a coupon or finding a bargain on line, I'm always happy to find it. I also like to hear about new ideas or find interesting new websites.

I hope to share my finds with you and hopefully you will contact me with finds of your own which I can then pass on to others (giving you credit for the find, of course).

I recently signed up at Big Crumbs to get money back on some of my online purchases. By logging in to this website first and then going to the store where I wish to shop (this also includes Ebay shopping), I receive a rebate back on each purchase I make. Sometimes the rebates are only a few cents but after a month of accumulations, it often adds up to several dollars. Your rebate is then deposited into your PayPal account. Now there is free money available for more shopping!!


  1. Great theme for a blog and we all need those tips on savings right now especially with the economy the way it is. Good luck.

  2. Thanks, Sewinggranny. Hopefully I can come up with some useful tips!

  3. Good ideas, Carol. Your new blog is looking good. You are inspiring me to 'give it a go', as I've been thinking of beginning a blog for quite some time.
