So, when I started the first blog on Money Savings Tips I had no idea that this would become a miniseries LOL!! But I have to tell you that as a single parent I have been blessed with the gift of looking good (Well my son has) and saving money. LOL!!  So, I thought I would continue sharing what I have learned over the years.

Please feel free to comment and share some of what you do as I’m always open to new ideas. With that being said I thought I would continue this miniseries & talk about the use of Groupons and other sites like that that will help you save money.

As I just stated sites like Groupon, Eversave, Living Social, Amazon Deals and other will help you save on everyday items such as restaurants, travel deals, things to do with the kiddies, household items, etc. Now I know some will say I don’t like these sites but you might be surprised at the deals out there. I will list a few of the sites at the end.

Also, what are your favorite stores to shop? Gap, Old Navy, H & M, Yankee Candle, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Bath & Body Works. What about your favorite restaurants? Sign up for the rewards program and watch the savings roll in. I get lots of emails from some of my favorite stores & restaurants with discount coupons to use either online or in store.  I just received an email the other day from Auntie Annie Pretzels (I love the pretzel hot dogs…YUMMO) for a $1 off. Now I’m sure your saying Shawne it’s just a $1 dollar but remember what I said in my last blog. Take those savings, put them away and see what you have in 6 months.

We all love to shop so why stop however saving a few bucks here or there is always a good thing.

I hope you found this helpful…please leave your comments and tell me how you save!!  HAPPY SAVINGS!

To your success,

Money saving tips for single parents

In today’s blog I will share how you can save on everyday household items & clothes for you and your family. Now, i’m not sure if your aware of this but pretty much every store you walk into has a CLEARANCE SECTION. Trust me when I say this section has now become your BEST FRIEND.

No matter what store you go into your 1st stop should always be the CLEARANCE SECTION. Can you say HIDDEN TREASURES. You may never know what you’ll find there.

When your in your local pharmacy hit the clearance rack. Maybe that bottle of cough syrup you buy is laying there without a box or maybe the box is dented. Maybe those schoool supplies the kiddos need are sitting there waiting just for you because the package broke and there now selling for $0.15. I think you get the idea

When you walk into your local grocery stores hit the clearance rack. Maybe your favorite cans of vegetables are there but the can is dented. How about those bottles of water that are now $0.20 because 2 broke in the case so now they are selling them individually. And please don’t knock day old bread, cakes, cookies and pies, maybe it’s just what you need for dinner that night. Oh and I forget one more hidden treasure, check out the produce maybe you will find some fresh veggies and fruits that you could use to put in shakes or give the kiddies for snack the next day.










Need to do a little clothers shopping, you guessed it hit the clearance rack. Clothes can also be another big expense for families so check out that rack, Lol! I have found underclothes for my son because the T-shirt pack is missing one and now they are $1.00 apiece. How about socks that are no longer in a pack. I think you get the picture.










In these days & times we are all looking for ways to save money and I have to tell you I save all day everyday with just this tip alone.
