I almost missed Frugal Friday!
I’m in that post-vacation crunch. You know, the one where everything hits you all at once?
I do have a Frugal Friday entry, though.
This week’s entry concerns using a popular coupons savings book, the Entertainment Book from entertainment.com to save money.
“What?” You might ask. “Do I have to buy something to save money?” In this instance, the answer is “yes.”
You’ve probably seen these nifty little books around and know that they are filled with discount coupons for dining, movies, and sports events (to a name a few of the deals available).
What you may not realize is that they also contain coupons for groceries ($5.00 off each month’s groceries in my market), car rentals, and vacation discounts.
For me, the grocery savings alone (about $60.00 a year) makes it worthwhile for me to purchase this book (at about $25.00).
Yes, we have broken down and used the dining coupons from time to time. But, if you’re going to occasionally dine out anyway isn’t it better to do it for less?
Here’s a picture of my well-worn book below. You may want to try this saving tip for yourself.
