Blog Recommendation: Frugal Plus

Jill, a work-at-home mother of 7, has been blogging about savings for over 6 years, but I discovered her blog only recently.  She has some great deals listed on her blog, including a JCP coupon, a Filtrete rebate, and an Old Navy coupon.  She also recently reviewed the book, Once An Arafat Man, by ‘Taas Saada.  Check out her blog, Frugal Plus, for all of her coupons, freebies, giveaways, reviews, and more.

My family will be heading out soon to attend a New Year’s Eve game night at the church we attend.  Since it’s 45 minutes away, it’ll be well after midnight when we return home.  S0, I’m getting a head start and posting now.

I have fresh bread baking in the oven and it smells so good!  I’ll be taking it out just before we head out the door.  Not only will it taste good when we eat it, but it will keep my lap warm all the way to the church building.  :o)  But I digress!

I’m an incurable Night Owl, so I’ll probably be back and ready to post early in the New Year (that is, around 1:30 am on the 1st). But, if I’m not up to it, I’ll catch you all a little later in the day.  I still have plenty of deals to post about, despite my posting frenzy of last eve!  And I am committed to finding even more ways to save in the new year!  I will pass them on to you, of course!

I pray that you and yours will be safe tonight.  If you don’t mind, please say a prayer for us too.  May you all be blessed in the year 2010!

In Christian Love,

Blog Recommendation: Daily Essentials and Deals

Megan, author of Daily Essentials and Deals, has a family friendly blog site with (in Megan’s words) a three-fold  purpose:  “First to help me get my daily dose of the Bible (and be accountable), second to focus on family, and of course to talk about THE COUPON DEALS!”  I subscribed to Megan’s blog several weeks ago and have found her coupon links very helpful.  I also enjoy her posts and pictures.  If interested, you can subscribe to her blog.  Or, just drop in and visit her site once in a while.  I recommend subscribing because, as does mine, her blog has some time-sensitive offers.

Also, as a fun bonus, she sponsors giveaways.  The current giveaway is a bottle of lotion from Skin MD, which the company provided to Megan for the giveaway.  Click here to see the details and then leave a comment for an entry in the giveaway.  The giveaway is open to everyone!  :o)
