Good Bye June, Hello July!

Hello July,

IMG_0882

Lets Set Goals for the month and come up with ways to accomplish them. June was good to me now I’m expecting July to be even better for me.

I set goals each month and track them. Last month I set goals but did not accomplish all of them or come no way near close to meeting the goals that I set. Which is okay I have to reevaluate them for July and ensure that I start from the first day of the month until to the last with working on my goals.

I have decided to focus more on the blog this month I have gotten off track, but I decided to get back on track. So with that in mind, a new month brings new begins and a fresh start.

IMG_0892

July Blog Goal: 28 days of Blogging I have to post a blog post for the next 28 days. I want my followers to stay tuned to my blog. I want them to be able to say that they are learning from my blog. I feel for you to learn you have to be informed. So to be reported I have to create a post that is helpful to all my followers.

To successfully met my goal of 28 days of Blogging I need to do the following:

1. Time Management: Time Management is everything I have followers that enjoy reading my post, and I want to keep it that way. To manage my time, I need to stop procrastinating and get my blog post posted immediately from the time I finish the job. I definitely have to stop waiting around to see if I can post a better post and use the one that I originally came up with.

2. More Consistent: I’m not consistent at all when it comes to my blog. I should not expect for it to grow if I post here and there. I can’t wait to get more than what I put out so if I’m inconsistent I cant expect my followers to be consistent. I have to consider this a lesson and work even harder at being consistent with posting to my followers.

3. Get rid of anything thing that’s a hindrance: TV has become a hindrance for me. I find myself watching TV and trying to post on my blog at the same time. I have to get back to doing them separately so I can focus. Looking at the TV while trying to post is not a good idea for because it will take forever to write a sentence in between the commercials.

I will be reflecting back on this post throughout the month to hold myself accountable for meeting my goal. I have motivated myself to write this post, and I will be following it to ensure a successful month of blogging.

I want to Thank Leslie Nichole for inspiring me to write this post. After reading your Goal post last month it was very encouraging and motivational to me. 

Why You Need Amazon Prime? How to get Amazon Prime for Free?

If I had to guess 95% of you, shop on Amazon but only 30% of you have Amazon Prime, but you buy from Amazon a couple of times of month or more.

If you don’t have Amazon Prime, you are missing out! Amazon Prime is the best way for you get the best of what Amazon has to offer for a price of $119 per year. I signed up years ago and have been renewing it every year since then.

Reasons to Why You Need Amazon Prime:

1. Free Two Day Shipping-You are already shopping on Amazon, but you don’t have prime, you should consider it. The savings is unlimited because you can find anything you need. Often people don’t purchase because they see the price of shipping and they reconsider the entire purchase. There is no minimum at all on this particular feature so look at like this if you purchase the site a few times of the year then it is worth the investment of the annual fee in my option.

2. One-Day Shipping Upgrade- We’ve all done it before ordered something last minute or ordered something and need it right away. With Amazon Prime, you can always upgrade your two-day shipping to one-day shipping for $3.99. Depending on what city you reside in you may qualify for free one-day shipping. If you upgrade and you don’t have Prime you are looking at paying $9.95 or more it just depends on the item.

You can read at any time and any place with the conveniences of the Kindle app. There are unlimited reading, current magazines and unlimited audiobooks that are available to you on any device.

4. Prime Video– Offers several different television shows and movies to choose from at any time for free. If you use Netflix this is worth the switch there is so much more offered on Prime Video. You also have the option to stream videos on your other devices such as Kindle, iPad, Wii and or Roku. You also have a video library that is creates were you can use it on the go. You can also stream shows off of HBO for free.

5. Amazon Family– If you are expecting or has small children then you would want to consider Amazon Family. Amazon Family will help you save on items such as diapers, wipes, baby food and so much more. There are all kinds of special discounts that your eligible for under the Amazon Family. You are eligible to save 20% off of the most famous known baby gear and accessories. If you have a Prime membership, then this is another excellent way to utilize the program and continue to save money.

6. Share with your Family- Amazon Prime allows you to share your membership with up to four of your family members. They will also get to take advance of the free two-day shipping without having to pay for the Prime Membership. All they have to do is go in and add them for no additional cost to use the benefits. If Amazon Prime is shared, then you will still get all of the above benefits that are listed.

So now you are thinking about purchasing to get Amazon Prime. I’ll tell you a few ways that you can get Prime for Free. Free is GOOD all the time.

Vacation is over and I’m Back

IMG_0714

I know it’s been a while since I posted a blog post, I have been swamped. Between working my full-time job, just finishing a problematic semester in school and running around with my daughter I hadn’t been doing much couponing. Let alone looking at any sales papers or even picking up coupons. I’m delighted to report that my job is going well. I finished my semester out on top with A’s. My daughter has officially gone on vacation for the summer with her Grandparents. So it’s just me for now. I was also able to get away and relax and rejuvenate for seven days in Jamaica. When I tell you that vacation was everything that the doctored ordered it was much needed and well deserved.IMG_0712.PNG

But I’m happy to say that I’m back and in full effect ready to help you save money. Trust me I can tell the difference between just spending money and saving with coupons. I have been shopping on numerous occasions and haven’t used a coupon but trust me it won’t happen again. I have made a comparison, and it wasn’t pretty at all. I don’t beat myself up for it; I just have taken it as a lesson learned and will move forward and strive to do better with my spending habits.

IMG_0711

As for my blog, I will start back posting the weekly deal matchup at CVS and Walgreens. I will also soon begin to start to add in other stores that you can efficiently coupon at. Just remember as I will add in different stores you will need to become familiar with the coupon policies at the different stores. Not all stores have the same couponing policy. Always know the couponing policy before going into a store because you don’t want to waste your time and you also want to save yourself some frustrations in the end.

Also, I will be updating the Online Deals daily or should I say as I find deals. I have seen several good buys this week, and I will post them today. If there is a deal that just stands out to me, then I will post it as the Deal of the Day.N If you purchased the last deal of the day the Air Fryer, it was a steal in my eyes. The Air Fryer has definitely come in handy at my house since I opened the box I haven’t cut the stove on since then. So if you haven’t invested in one yet I highly suggest you get an Air Fryer.

Deal of the Day

Here is a Deal that you can’t refuse.

BLACK+DECKER Purify 2-Liter Air Fryer, Black/Stainless Steel, HF110SBD

Is it really worth the hype? Yes, it is worth all the hype and more.

1. It’s a healthier alternative to traditional fried foods. If you are looking to give up fried foods then the air fryer is the best choice for you. The air fryer will give you that fried taste minus all the grease.

2. The air fryer is easy to clean up after being used. You can remove the parts of the air fryer and even place them in the dishwasher if you prefer to wash them that way.

3. Multiple usages: fry, grill, roast or bake
Air Fry frozen foods such as French fries, onion rings or chicken nuggets
Air Grill vegetables or seafood
Air Roast any meats or vegetables
Air Bake muffins, cupcakes, brownies or bread

You have heard about all the hype, now what’s the downside? I’m glad you asked I’ll be happy to fill you in.

1. It takes longer to cook with an air fryer you can normally cook French fries in 10 minutes in a deep fryer. But not with the air fryer it would take 20 minutes for them to cook.

2. If you have a large family then you will have to cook the food in different batches cause it is so small you would not be able to cook for a large family all at once.

The air fryer is definitely worth the hype to buy. It is a kitchen appliance that I highly suggest everyone invest in. I love fried foods but I also had to give them up so when I purchased the air fryer I have been able to indulge in a healthier version of fried foods. Of course, it has been trial and error with the air fryer but over time I have become very satisfied with the end results of using the air fryer.

Crafting Can Be Frugal

Are you into crafting? Do you like DIY projects?

If you answered yes to both questions you are in the right place. If crafting is in your blood and your funds are limited, your limited funds can go a long way at a craft store, Dollar Tree or <a href="http://crafts“>Amazon.

Crafting is still frugal if you know how to shop. Crafting can be a luxury of a person’s time and money. Walking into a craft store with the intends of buying one item and then leaving out with several different items adds up it can be quite expensive. Looking at DIY projects and getting ideas to make handmade items will add up in cost. If you are looking for cheap or free items don’t stop here keep reading.

Do you sew? Would like to get your fabric for cheap or even free?

IMG_1438

When you go to a craft stop you first start looking for the fabric and you are amazed by all the beautiful colors, textures and the patterns in front of you. You suddenly begin to look through all the rows and look at the walls to see which fabric to get. That’s an option but to spend less you would need to look again.

Step back and look again to save money you can get fabric from other sources. Other sources I know your thinking what other sources. Always check other sources first and then the clearance section. Other sources that you can use would be sheets, duvet covers, table clothes, curtains, and placemats. After the holidays and the season change always check to see what decors they have on clearance that you could possibly sew with even turn a Christmas tree skirt into a costume skirt for a princess. These items are always on clearance and most importantly they are already hemmed or have buttons on them that will allow you to work with them.

So, you don’t sew?

Your exactly right I don’t sew but I would like to make t-shirts with designs. I have made shirts with iron-on transfers and I have even tried to paint a shirt with a paper stencil. I want to purchase a Cricut or a Silhouette, but the cost is a bit pricey at this time, so I have been using an Exacto knife to cut out the designs for my t-shirts. I searched the internet and craft stores for a good price and have yet to find a good price.

Well, you would need to make sure that when you are looking at crafts stores you are checking for coupons and you are reading the fine print. Recently at Hobby Lobby, they had a 40% off coupon that came out and it had very little restrictions listed on the bottom of the coupon. With that coupon, you would be able to purchase a Silhouette for under $200 depending on what the price is in your store. If your local store may have it priced at $199.99 and then you would use the 40% off coupon which will then make it $119.99. Now that’s a deal.

With an in-store purchase, the Cricut nor the Silhouette comes with accessories or supplies unlike if you order them off <a href="http://crafts“>Amazon. The machine may be cheaper in store, but you would also need to factor in how much you will spend out of pocket on the supplies to get started to see if you will be spending more than the total machine cost to determine the better deal.

When purchasing your vinyl at a craft store always wait until they have a sale such as B1G1 50% or 25% off. You will come out cheaper purchasing vinyl off<a href="http://crafts“> Amazon. Also keep a eye out to when the supplies for the machine are on sale for 25%.

IMG_1434

Apps to Download to Get Deals:

Everyone should download the RetailMeNot app if you haven’t already. You can also download the app for each craft store. Use apps to save money while shopping in a store. Using the apps is the easiest way to save money at any time no having to remember to clip coupons and bring them in the store. You will only have to bring your phone to the store and present it to the cashier. I literally use this app on a daily basis to save money.

Can’t find what you are looking for always go to <a href="http://crafts“>Amazon

Amazon always has great deals, you can add items to your cart and then come back to them and place an order. If you have Prime you can get Free Two-Day Shipping on the items that show Prime eligible in your cart. For those of you that don’t have Prime, you can sign up here. If you don’t have Prime you will have to spend a minimum of $35 in order to receive free shipping. When placing your order for craft supplies you should make sure you stock up on them when they are on sale. I always purchase my ink cartridges, circuit blades, vinyl and transfer paper. I also buy items in bulk that I know I use on a regular basis and could never have enough of such as mason jars, hats, t-shirts, and cups. Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial 

Dollar Tree

Oh, yes Dollar Tree takes coupons. Dollar Tree offers so many great things that can help you keep your craft corner stocked up. You have a last-minute project to complete and you don’t have even supplies go to Dollar Tree. Dollar Tree has everything from beads, marbles, stones, paint the brushes, construction paper and yarn and so much more. You are also able to place orders online and in bulk.

While shopping online if you don’t have Ebates make sure you sign up here for it. Ebates gives you cash back when you make qualifying purchases online.

Remember in crafting not have a tutorial can be the BEST way to be creative with crafting. You repurpose and create a vision like no other.
