On Sunday, I had the great pleasure of teaching a class on the 10 Commandments of Saving Money to a wonderful group of men and women attending Kansas City’s Day of Discovery.
In order to make sure that you have everything you need to be successful in your money saving journey, I have put together this list of links you may want to read further.
- We briefly talked about deal match-ups – where frugal bloggers like me tell you what’s on sale and what coupons to use to save even more. I encourage you to follow my kosher match-ups for Target, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart and Trader Joe’s.
- I also want to introduce you to the blog of my dear friend Kelly from Kansas City Mamas. If you shop at Hen House, HyVee or Price Chopper, Kelly writes a weekly match-up post with all the sale items paired with coupons. Read her blog to make your local shopping a cinch!
- To learn how to organize your coupons, here is an in-depth tutorial about my no-clip coupon organization method – and a follow-up post about how to organize printable coupons (remember, my cute black and pink organizer?!) You can also organize coupons using a three-right binder and sheet protectors.
- Whatever organization method you use, you will want to know about the KOAB Coupon Database. It’s your go-to resource for finding all the best coupons. Whether you are looking to save money on mayo or margarine, just plug in the key words, press enter and quickly locate all the relevant coupons.
- Learn how I get most of your toiletries and household cleaning supplies for pennies on the dollar by shopping at drugstores like CVS and Walgreens.
- Remember that I said (strategic) stockpiling is the key to saving money, since you’ll be able to shop from your own home? Well, here’s a review of how stockpiling can save you money – and even allow you to give more generously. If you’re worried you don’t have the money to stockpile, I’ve written about how to fit it into your budget.
- Here are some menu planning ideas, including how I make monthly menu planning work for us.
- You may also enjoy perusing the posts I’ve written on Budgeting Basics, including these tutorials on using the free money-tracker I raved about, Mint.com.
- And finally, if you’re not already, I hope you will stay in touch with me by “liking” the KOAB Facebook page and subscribing for the free KOAB daily email newsletter.
If you have questions, comments or just want to chat, you can always reach me by email.
Thank you so much to the Rabbinic Association of Greater Kansas City for inviting me to be a presenter at the Day of Discovery!
