Money Monday - Snagging Deals

An update on the depleted emergency fund after our home purchase? By the end of this month we will be 57% of the way there, and then we'll need to start saving for cars.

Today's Monday Post is about "deals." How often do you shrug sales/deals/coupons off, or throw them away because it's only a few dollars, or you can't make time for them?

Tonight, we went to Kohls. I didn't feel like going, but we went. We had received a $10 coupon in the mail and we tried to use it last week, before it was valid and had to put our $10 worth of stuff back because I am so cheap!

We went back today and got a new bed pillow for Matt, a three way picture frame for me, and a shirt for "Red White & Blue Day" for Hannah and we paid...get this...$1.66. They weren't frivolous purchases because we have been thinking about buying those things and we spent next to nothing to get them.

Sometimes it's worth paying attention to what comes in the mail, coupons, circulars, or random deals. If you scout, you can get some great deals - just make sure you know what you're looking for and what you need.
