Ways I Saved/Earned Money This Week

- I read all of my Inbox Dollars emails for my account and my husband's daily to add money to our accounts.

- I read all of my MyPoints emails daily for my account and my husband's to add points to receive FREE gift cards.

- Cleaned out my coupon binder and filed new coupons for future shopping trips.

- Continued to use my FREE samples this week including - toothpaste, dental floss, mouthwash, lotion, razors and shampoo.

- Only used my dishwasher once this week.

- Heat has been turned off completely. Abnormally warm days this time of year.

- No drugstore shopping this week.

- Wrote a sponsored post.

- Order a FREE photo book from Shutterfly with a coupon code - Love These!

- Planned my grocery store shopping using the sale ad and coupons.

- Stayed home alot this week which always saves money.

- Took the kids to have Easter pictures taken.  Pictures turned out awesome and they were a great price.

- Printed a few coupons for future shopping.

- Went shopping for Easter outfits, Easter gifts, and summer clothes.  Took advantage of sale prices and used a store coupon with each purchase. 

- Dyed Easter eggs with supplies I found on clearance last year.

- Made a new flower garden.  Instead of buying new flowers, I just separated and split several that I already had in other areas.  Plus, a friend gave me a few too.

I often see the photo books advertised, but I've never ordered one. Are they nice?

I love photo books and have done many. I try to do one for each child at Christmas and their birthday and then I do one for our vacation every year and any other special event. They make great gifts too.
