You Can't Win If You Don't Play...

...and I'm not talking about the Lottery. I found www.sweepsadvantage.com recently and found it very interesting. It contains the largest directory of Free Sweepstakes and Contests. It even includes Instant Win Sweepstakes! Why not try your luck?

Can you make dinner for $5?

You can at 5dollardinners.com! It's a really interesting site. Of course they have a recipe section with meals you can make for $5 (and each ingredient has it's cost right next to it). Some of the other sections include Meal Planning, Bargain Meal of the Week, Printable Coupons and a Garden section which teaches you how to grow your own fruit and vegetables. I think I might make the $5 Taco dinner tonight.

Are you tired of going through the Sunday paper circulars and making a list of the great sales at each store? This site will be a tremendous help to you: http://moneysavingmom.com. When you click on the "Deals and Steals" category you will find the best deals of the week sorted by store. They even include information on where to get coupons for these items. For example, Huggies Diapers are on sale at Walgreen's this week for $8.99. Click on the link under the Huggies Diapers and it takes you directly to a site where you can print out a $3 off coupon for Huggies! You pay only $5.99 and they did all the research and linking. What could be better?

Budget Meals

Rachael Ray has a segment on her website devoted to budget meals. Just go to www.rachaelray.com, click on "Food" and then click on "Budget Meals" to get there. The last time I visited she had recipes such as Italian BBQ Cube Steak and Buffalo Chicken Stromboli to name a few. Another segment of the site is entitled "Rollover Meals". Rollover meals are leftovers that can be rolled over into one or even two more meals! Check it out!

Save On Sneakers

If you need new sneakers but don't want to spend too much, try shopping at holabirdsports.com. The selection is great and the price is even better! I did notice that holabirdsports.com did not come up on many comparison shopping sites so you'll have to bookmark this site so you remember to use it!
