Frugal Friday: My Top 5 Favorite Deal Sites

on August 30, 2013

{Each Friday, I attempt to pass along a frugal tip I have learned or am attempting to learn. I love a good deal, and I love to help our family stay within the budget by being frugal in every area of life!}

This is going to be a short one today, folks! 😉

dollar signOne of the best ways I’ve found to save time and money is to follow a few good deal sites. (I’m needing to find a new reader, though, now that Google Reader is gone! 😦 ) If you follow any of these blogs, these ladies do all the work for you in planning out great deals and shopping scenarios. You just follow their instructions (which coupons to print/cut, what coupon codes to use, etc.) and –voila! – you snag yourself a great deal!

Listed below are my favorite sites:

1. Hip2save.com

This is my all-time favorite. Collin does a phenomenal (and ethical!) job promoting the hottest deals out there. My favorite features are her store-specific posts on Saturdays (for CVS, Walgreens, and Rite-Aid) for deals for the upcoming week. Target posts come on Sunday. She lists all the deals, which coupons to use, any possible reward, and the final out-of-pocket price for each deal. She highlights her favorites in red, which are typically the best deals.  It’s great!

 2. Frugalcouponliving.com

This is another great site, with a lot of similar features to the above.

3. Babycheapskate.com

This is great if you have babies. My favorite posts are her “Top diaper deals of the week” posts. She has definitely done her research!

4. Couponmom.com

Again, this is similar to the above, but she has a lot of cool features if you sign in. She has lists for coupon deals for state-specific stores.

5.  Northernillinoiscouponing.com

This is newer to me, since I am new to Illinois, but it has been helpful. Obviously, this is only specific to stores found in Northern Illinois.

What are your favorite couponing/deal websites?

Have a great weekend! 🙂
