And we’re in business!! Super Saver Sundays

Super Saver Sunday

My husband and I have had a family blog for years and he finally got tired of me posting all my weekly deals and steals so here we are!!!  A Blog only dedicated to helping you get the most for your pennies...and I do mean pennies!!  I will post tons of great freebies, cheap recipes, money saving tips, and of  This first mega post is a weeks worth of blogging so don't worry, they won't all be this long.

If you find any other deals, please comment to let everyone know about the deals that you have found.  Happy bargaining!!  (It's double coupons at Kmart again! See below for more details!!)

FREE SAMPLES- If you are new to sampling, here is a heads up.  You usually have to fill out some info about yourself before they will send you a sample.  Usually there is a * by email or phone #, you don't have to list it.  If they do require you to put down an email address, they may send you ads from time to time....this is why I always use my old Liberty University email account that I never check anymore.  Why samples??  Samples are great for trying something new, the samples of lotion and shampoo are great for vacations, and they will usually will send you high value coupons with the sample.  Here they are....

Money Saving Tip of the Week

This weeks tip will not only help you save some $$ but it will help the environment.  We are talking about laundry washing tips.... you can check out C3 for more info. 

Tip #1- Wash in COLD!!

Here are some great facts from C3

  • About 90% of the energy used for washing clothes is for heating the water. 
  • According to the Rocky Mountain Institute, water heating accounts for approximately 10 percent of total  home energy use.
  • According to the US Department of Energy, there are two ways to reduce the amount of energy used for washing clothes, use less water and use cooler water.  Push the "cold/cold button on your washing machine for 80% of the loads you do this month.
  • By doing 4 out of 5 loads in cold water, you'll cut 72 pounds of CO2 emissions this month alone. 
  • Keep washing 80% of the loads in cold for a year and you’ll save more than $60 in energy costs for the year ($100 a year if you live in regions with high electricity costs).

More Energy Saving Laundry Tips

  • Air-dry clothes on clothes lines or drying racks.
  • Wash only full loads, but do not overload your machine. Wash smaller loads only when you have a small-load attachment or variable water levels.
  • Use the correct amount of detergent. Too many bubbles make your machine work harder and use more energy.
  • Use the cool-down cycle to allow the clothes to finish drying with the residual heat in the dryer.
  • Clean the lint filter in the dryer after every load to improve air circulation.
  • If buying a washer, look for the Energy Star label. Energy Star clothes washers clean clothes using half the energy and half the water compared to standard washers. Energy Star models also spin the clothes better, resulting in less drying time.
  • If buying a dryer, look for one with a moisture sensor. (Energy Star does not label clothes dryers because most of them use similar amounts of energy. However, moisture sensors will automatically shut off the machine when your clothes are dry—saving energy and prolonging the life of your clothes.)
