There's been lots going on here. Here's just a small recap of everything from the last week. As you may already know, I have been giving away a Card Cubby here on Centsible Mommy this past week and will continue to give away 1 a week for the next 3 weeks. So be sure to enter for a chance to win a Card Cubby!

The winner of the first week's Card Cubby giveaway is DeAnn. Congratulations, DeAnn ! Please email me with your name & shipping address along with what color Card Cubby you would like. I will then forward it to Wendy at Card Cubby so she can get that in the mail to you asap!

Also, I've read this e-book that I highly want to recommend called 100 ways to Save Money. It's a definite must read. Read about that here. And guess what? One's being given away on this site this week! So check out this post to find out how you can win your copy?

Recommended Frugal Resource

Another item I must recommend for those trying to sharpen their savings savvy and really maximize their savings is The Couponizer. It's been on my sidebar under Frugal Resources for about a month now, but I thought I should mention it for those who overlooked it. And right now when you order a The Couponizer you get a free book: Greatest Secrets of the Coupon Mom by Stephanie Nelson. I ordered mine and can't wait to get it and start maximizing my savings! Also, a few weeks back I downloaded Stephanie Nelson's other book: Advanced Grocery Savings Strategies: Cut Your Grocery Bill in Half. Get your free download here!


The results are in for last weeks poll: the majority (45% of you) said you enjoy every type of post here on Centsible Mommy: Freebies/Samples, Free Magazine Subscriptions, Coupons & Store Savings,Tips on saving on utilities & other, and tips on how to make extra income. So I will continue posting information on these thrifty tidbits. Thanks to those who took a second to pick their choices!

What's Coming Up?

Also, this week I invite you to join me on my quest to clarity. This month I am going to declutter my home in hopes to find some clarity. I have been inspired by the book From Clutter to Clarity. Let's declutter our homes and find some clarity together! Feel free to send me notes or pictures of how you decluttered a room in your home or a note on how many bags or boxes of clutter you removed from your home. This week I am starting with my bedroom. Which room will you start with?

So please, join me in a quest and let's declutter our way to clarity! After all, you gotta love where you're at! I will be updating you in a few days as to how it goes and want to see how it goes for all of you as well, so please share your results with me!

I am also preparing for a yard sale in the upcoming weeks/month and will be posting some tips on successful yard/garage sales here be sure to stop back by to check those out -especially if you have an upcoming yard/garage sale planned.

Have a Meager Monday and remember to read my tips on making some extra money and don't forget to grab yourself a freebie or two.

As always, if you found a deal, please email it to me and share the savings! Thanks to all of you who have shared the savings thus far! By the way, if you want to share the love, grab my button from the sidebar! Thanks!

Have a fabulously frugal day,
