It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned ThredUp here at Frugality Is free, but today I’ll give anther shout out to this online consignment store. This morning I received an email that I had a $10 referral credit waiting in my account. I had the feeling that shipping cost was still high, and sure enough the $5.99 shipping fee was not enticing.… Read more
I received a $10 off $10 Target coupon in my inbox the other day, and it came just in time for buying teacher’s gifts. Look in your inbox for an email titled “Surprise! Coupon for $10 off holiday decorations inside” from (firstname.lastname@example.org).
My coupon froze down the register, so the manager had to take me to another register and put it in manually, just in case you are having problems with the coupon.… Read more
My husband recently started teaching, and I’ve been tasked with helping him put together a rewards program. So, when I heard about the $5 off $5 Sally Hansen coupon from Hip2Save, I knew I was going to find some nice prizes for the prize boxes.
After work we went out to stock up for the hurricane, and my husband went in to use his coupon at Sally’s Beauty Supply.… Read more

We had a big yard sale before we moved, where we sold a lot of old clothes, but we still had some left that did not sell. Then as we did our final packing I discovered more clothes that didn’t fit our youngest son, and everything was packed up and sent off to Schoola. When you donate to Schoola, they send you a bag for free, and shipping to Schoola is free as well.… Read more
The kids are just about to start their new schools, and they are excited. With our move this summer, it has been almost impossible to do much shopping, which is why I’m incredibly thankful for Schoola. I’ve shopped for back to school for our kids all year round, mostly with credit and always with coupons and free shipping.
I’ve got $20 for you to spend at Schoola too, and if you use the Schoola coupon code and your credit you can get $30 worth of Schoola clothes for $1, or simply get $20 Schoola clothes shipped for 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
It always amazes me how much money using our local library saves us over the year. We try to keep our summers frugal, and with four kids at home it can be hard to do. Still, we seek out free events and activities, and we go to the beach and the parks a lot. Throughout the week we take advantage of the free activities at the library, the kids are signed up for the summer reading program, and the library is also a part of the free summer food program, which means they serve free lunch for the kids during the week.… Read more
I am excited about the new sale at Schoola, because Schoola is the most affordable place to shop back-to-school for the kids. At 50 percent off already low prices, you can find great brands at for as low as $2 each. Our kids wear a mix of second-hand clothes and new clothes bought on clearance with coupons, and that’s how all four have great ready-for school wardrobes despite our minimal clothing budget.… Read more
It’s time for summer reading, and my kids are all ready. This past weekend we stopped by our local Barnes & Noble to pick up free books to read, and there were some great books to choose between. The kids love this program, and I loved that instead of spending $30 on summer books, I spent $0 and gained four eager readers.… Read more
With the end of the school year rapidly approaching so is the countdown for our kids school changes. Next year all three of our boys will be at new schools, and there will be no school uniforms.
