I admit I am pretty frugal. Being a student and having a family with 3 kids I am always buying things on sale or finding ways to save money. I have utilized Craigslist for furniture and used appliance. I have the Entertainment and Chinook coupon books. I subscribed to Thrifty Mom and Queen Bee. Yes, I am one those people that do line up for Black Friday deals too. I was also fortunate to win a scholarship for my tuition last quarter. It’s easy to get discounts by using Groupon and Living Social too. I liked to use them before the expired date to get the best value. This weekend, we happened to be in Las Vegas and finding a deal is essential because being on vacation is expensive. The only way I could afford coming here is using my miles to purchase the airplane tickets. For hotel, I took the Hilton Grande vacation presentation so I can get the $158 for a 4 days/3 night stay. My husband wanted to go to a club and listened to some music, cover charge was $35 a person. That was too expensive for me. I went online, liked the club on Facebook and followed one of the promoters. Via twitter, I messaged him and he got me on the guest list for free. Even though I try to get the best deal on everything, it was still pricey. I appreciate having Twitter and social media as another resource to find ways to save money. If you know other ways to save $$$, please let me know. Thanks!
