HELPPPPPPP! What is the name of that web site??
OK I have been digging around on here for several hours trying to find this grocery saving web site! I used to be a member to The Grocery Game but I'm trying it on my own. I have to admit it has me very spoiled with their lists and having the ability to pick what I want to print or not. I can easily say I have learned more from blogs like Money Saving Mom and Common Sense With Money and also Money Saving Methods but there's something about having that list. I've tried A Full Cup but kind of turned off because I have to print the whole list and it's huge. If someone knows the secret to not printing the whole list please share. BUT a while back I was surfing and came across another club similar to Grocery Game. It's not the Shopping Angels (at least I think that's one of them). This one has a name like Rebate something or Receipt something..... UGH. I didn't pay that much attention to it at the time because I was in the GG. If anyone has a clue what I'm talking about (cause I sure don't!) please leave a comment below! It would be greatly appreciated!
- Corn starch - Makes a great diaper rash preventer/cure. Doesn't have to be name brand. I would suggest getting a little shaker container and filling it then shake over little one's tushy during diaper change. Our little one has really sensitive skin and I have used this over and over. In addition especially at night you can apply diaper rash cream over top off the corn starch as a moisture barrier. This really helps over night when they aren't changed as often. - Celery - wrap in aluminum foil (covering even the ends) and it will last for weeks in the fridge. - Liquid fabric softener - pour some into a plastic bowl with a cover, soak sponge in liquid, squeeze out and toss in dryer with wet clothes. I've been using the same bottle since Oct. and it works great! - Vinegar - Pour 1/2 to 1 cup into laundry rinse cycle and will help to soften clothes instead of fabric softener (I've done this and it works but I prefer the sponge method listed above). - Shaving cream for woman - Don't have a clue if this would work for a man but instead of shaving cream try using inexpensive hair conditioner to shave. Works fine for me.
WHAT I THINK DOESN'T WORK Freezing canned biscuits. I had read that they freeze fairly well so I tried it. I don't recommend this. It changes them so that they come out tunnelly and tough. They won't rise the way they should.
My wife and I are Club Coupon. As parent's of a toddler that is growing way too quick our daily lives are an exciting adventure. Necessary costs compelled us to start couponing in May of 2008 in a very serious way. We love saving money and we know you do to. We created our blog to share our savings stories and help you make the most of your money.
