Furnishing a new home on a frugal budget can be difficult, but with a little creativity it is possible to shop quality without breaking the budget. We needed a new rug, but there were no money in the budget for a big rug, so I had to get creative. With a little help from shopping apps and online earning apps, I managed to save up $75 in HomeGoods gift cards, and then I went shopping.… Read more
We did not make it to Office Depot yesterday, so we missed out on a couple of the 1 cent back to school deals at Office Depot. However, it wasn’t a big deal, since we did get the items we needed for the kids school supply lists. This year we will be at a new school district, and although I’ve been shopping clearance and deals all year, I’m still finding items on the three kids’ lists that we need to add before the beginning of school.… Read more
Did you get a $10 off $10 JCPenney coupon in your mailbox last week? We sure did, and even though we are in the middle of moving, we took a little break from packing to go shopping before we leave big city living – and there by a lot of stores – behind.… Read more
Have you heard about the IKEA Malm dresser recall? If you have an IKEA dresser in your home, there are great chances that your dresser is a part of the enormous IKEA recall.
We were planning on throwing our boys’ three dressers out before we move, because they have abused them to the point of no return. So when I saw an advertisement on tv for the IKEA Malm dresser recall, I realized that one of the boys’ dressers might be included.… Read more
We are in the middle of a big move, so we did not do a whole lot of shopping this week. On top of that we also had a birthday to celebrate and so it is just a little stressful.
We’ve been trying to empty our stock of food and only shop for the necessities. Thankfully our new town has an ALDI store, and that is going to be a huge help.… Read more
I had a $10 Kohl’s cash certificate from last week’s Kohl’s gift card shopping trip, so I made a quick trip to use it for something useful. I found a new welcome mat, which will be great for our new place.… Read more

Our oldest son’s birthday is coming up soon, and he too has several giveaway wins packed away in his gift box, and now I need to start getting ready for Christmas. Have you checked out the great giveaways we have going on here at Frugality Is Free?… Read more
Do you have kids going to back to school in August? If so, I’m sure that back-to-school shopping is on your mind. We’ve got three boys going back to school, but this year they are all attending new school, and all the schools are uniform free. This is not cheap, and we’re moving into a much more affluent school district than we’re used to, so I’ve tried to take this into consideration as well.… Read more
Our youngest son is turning seven tomorrow, and he’s requested an ice cream cake for his birthday. Since we’re in the middle of moving, I decided to go the easy route and make an ice cream cake out of ALDI ice cream, which is on sale. You simply cannot beat ALDI’s ice cream prices, at $1.99 – $2.29 for ice cream, cones an more.… Read more

Even though we have two bins full of school supplies already, our three kids school supplies are huge, plus we go through a lot of supplies at home throughout the year. So this morning before going to the playground I made a trip to Office Depot, and then my husband made his own trip.
Now, if you want to take advantage at the great back to school sales, the sooner you go the better, as there are no rainchecks on these deals.… Read more
