Money Saving Blogs

Like I said before, I love deals... well I actually said I ♥ deals... but anyhow, I want to share a few of my favorite money saving blogs.
The first one is actually what got me into blogging really. I first came across Baby Cheapskate in search of diaper deals. And boy, howdy, did I find them!!! Once I got six packs of Luvs diapers for around $2.00 per pack of 53! It was awesome. I love saving money! lists everything from coupons, to freebies, to giveaways, to awesome sales! Even diaper reviews with cents-per-diaper breakdown! Oh how do I love this site!!!

The second site I just came across today. It's called Mimi's Jewel Box of Tips and Treasures (that's quite a mouthful!!!) So far, I see lots of freebies on this site and lots of deals. I think I'll be keeping this baby bookmarked!

The third one is Absurdly Cool Freebie Finder. This website lists freebies from all kinds of sites. I've signed up for lots of things on this site and so far I've only gotten a few things.... but I think that's more due to the individual sites and their volume of interest. I have gotten a cute little swaddling blanket, some free samples... such as razors... and coupons, which are always nice. :)

The final site I want to share with everyone is A Full Cup. This site is a little hard to navigate until you get a hold of it. You just click on Forums in the upper left corner to find a list of individual stores. In each store, there is a forum and people post about deals they have found at their stores. I have found that the Target part of the forum is very well used and a lot of people like to post their finds at their local Targets. People at AFC are awesomely crazy when it comes to combining sales and coupons! Thanks to tips here I've bought things like two packs of Huggies wipes for 49 cents! They also list coupons at the Target Coupon Generator part of the site. And there is a list of other sites which offer printable coupons. I love this site. It's one of my favorite deal sites! :)

You know... I thought I had thought of them all, but I completely forgot about Craig's List! This is another great site that I'm sure you're all familiar with! I love finding things for Anna at great discounts. I have found a pair of pretty new shoes, worn once at a wedding, for 4 dollars... originally 19.99 at our local Fred Meyer. I also bought Anna's toddler bed for $10.00 from a nice older grandfatherly gentlemen who kept the bed for his grandchild who is now too big for it when he/she visits. I also found 15 cloth diapers for 30 dollars, but unfortunately I didn't get them... someone beat me to them! Wah! LOL! (I'm a wanna be CD'er) ;)

Those are gorgeous! I wish I had photos like that from when I was pregnant. Dang I can't even get my husband to take photo's of me not pregnant! You should feel very blessed.
