The Friendly Frugalista

Blogging about coupons, discounts, freebies, sales, and more!

PennyRaine.com

I recently mentioned that I follow the blog of Penny Raine and enjoy her eBook collection, Creatively Simple.  She sent out a newsletter today announcing the arrival of 4 new eBooks.  These eBooks are “Best of” compilations from her newsletters and they do qualify for the 50% discount announced earlier this week.

In addition, she occasionally posts a FREEBIE on her web-site.  She has one there now and the title is 101 Ways to Save Money: Study Guide.  I downloaded it earlier today, but haven’t had a chance to take a look at it yet.  Since this blog is dedicated to frugal living, I thought you’d want to know about 101 ways to save money!  🙂

[Edited to add]  DUH!  It’s a good thing I usually double-check my published posts!  I forgot the link for Penny’s FREEBIE!  Here it is…PennyRaine.com.

Macaroni Grill: Sign Up and Save

A hearty ~~THANK YOU~~ goes to Jill of Frugal Plus for posting about this!  I love Macaroni Grill!  And while it isn’t exactly cheap eats, it is (in my humble opinion) good eats.  So, a couple times a year (when I’m already in Greensboro), I sneak over and indulge. 🙂   In order to spare my budget just a little bit, I only order a cup of soup and a cheesecake.  Now, they give you free bread anyway. So, I get soup, bread, and a delicious dessert for less than the price of one entree.  Yum!  By the way, I don’t want any fruity stuff on my cheesecake.  I always ask for their chocolate ganache.  I love a good chocolate and I love a good cheesecake.  A good chocolate on a good cheesecake is my foodie version of  Heaven on earth!

OK, so here’s the deal, if you go here and sign up for the Mac Pack, they’ll send  you updates and special offers.  I’ve already registered and confirmed.  In my first official email, I received a coupon for a FREE appetizer.  So, next time I sneak over there, I’ll skip the soup, get the FREE appetizer, and enjoy my cheesecake!   I get to have my cake, and eat it too!  *giggle*

Psst!  In case you were wondering, I do draw on the paper tablecloth.  Well, sometimes!  I usually prefer to play a word game.  Like where you think of a word or phrase (such a Macaroni Grill) and see how many words you can make out of it while waiting for your food to arrive.

This Week @ Family Intel: Summary of “Home Sweet Homework”

Hmmmm!  It almost seems like Family Intel has a videocamera watching our house.  Last week’s summary was particularly applicable to our family.  And it seems this week’s summary just may be too.  Even though we’re homeschoolers and homework is not a huge problem around here (everything we do is home-work–hehe!), I’m pretty sure the studying strategies part will be helpful.

Remember that you must register at Family Intel to see the summaries.  As always, registration is FREE!  🙂

SUMMARY RUN-DOWN:

~This Week~  Home Sweet Homework:  A Parent’s Guide to Stress-Free Homework & Studying Strategies That Work by Sharon Marshall Lockett

~Last Week~  Siblings Without Rivalry by Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish

~Next Week~ Helping  Hyperactive Kids by Lynn Horowitz and Cecile Rost

Family Intel now has 43 FREE summaries!  Yay!
