New Book Giveaways!


Erin over at $5 dinners is a great resource for frugal family meals. We both started our frugal blogs around the same time so we've known each other for awhile. She's a wealth of information on how to cook healthy dinners for your family that are amazingly thrifty plus she had loads of tips on preparing meals ahead, couponing, food storage and about a gazillion other things. And the best part? She's put it all into an incredible book. She's been generous enough to give me TWO to giveaway. And if you just can't wait you can go HERE to buy one for yourself.

PLUS....

Have you been wanting to learn couponing but it just overwhelms you? Then another great book is available to you. Stephanie Nelson, the Coupon Mom, has written a great book for everyone from rookie couponers to the pros. She lays out great ways to save money using coupons, tracking store sales, finding free coupon resources, and much more! And I also have one of her books to giveaway to some lucky winner!

Here's how you can win...

Enter to win one of these three books by leaving a comment with your email address so that I can contact you.

US and Canada residents only please.


Giveaway ends on Thursday, January 28th at midnight PST.

  1. I am so excited for the opportunity to win either of these books. Both look like great resources for the frugal family. I am especially interested in the $5 Dinners. I am challenged when it comes to cooking so I am sure I would benefit from all the advice and receipes this book has to offer.
    Thanks!

  14. Looks great! With the arrival of the third child, coincidentally timed with the upswing in the older two kids' food intake, coincidentally timed with a bad economy, grocery bills increased by $30-40 a week. I've begun limiting what meals I prepare by choosing only cheap ones. That helps, but I'm interested in more ideas!
