Best Saving Money Tips – It’s the Weekend Edition

Each week I put together a list of the best tips and strategies for saving money.  Some of this week's money saving finds include NCAA Hooded Sweatshirts for $9.99, how a well stocked pantry can save you money, and how to remove stains from clothing.

Frugal Toad Tip

A great way for saving money on major purchases is to use a price comparison website like to find the best deal.  You can sign up for email alerts that will alert you when the product you are shopping for reaches your preassigned price target.  An added benefit is that by taking the time to research the best price also gives you time to rethink your purchase decision and eliminates the temptation to make an impulse purchase.

    Great list & congrats on being in so many carnivals, Toad! My mother-in-law clued me in on how to remove fruit stains. Any fruit stain, including blueberries, can be removed this way. Just put the stained part under fast-running really hot water. Let the hot water run from the back side of the fabric & keep it under the hot water until the stain is gone. No soap or chemicals needed! To work best, you have to get it under the hot water as soon as possible. This really works!
