I  also tend to shop for new holiday clothes for myself and my daughter, or i’ll get some last minute essential items. Either way i’m always looking for ways to save a buck!

    these are awesome suggestions. who doesn’t love to save money!? 🙂

    I’ve always been a bit skeptical about ebates, because it seems like all the other coupon rationale – buy stuff you wouldn’t normally buy, just to get a discount or get money back. Yet if you didn’t buy it to begin with, you would save THAT money because you never spent it! But I guess if it’s really something you want/need, ebates would be worth it.

  12. October 17, 2017 / 1:25 am

    These are prefect. I tend to over spend on my travels and then o go with a few of my favorite things for a month or so. Certainly pinning this and get on ebates.
