First, I write this blog with COMPLETE selfishness. I am actually writing this blog to help pull my husband along the ride of all things savings. You see, he doesn't understand how writing, reading and DEAL shopping can be fun. I love ALL these things. This is one more way to get him on board.
Before I get into the post, I want to share a little more with you about SwagBucks. Today is a big SwagBucks day, and I thought it was important to share how to SAVE ON CHRISTMAS GIFTS--or really all year.
The essence is this: 1) sign up for a SwagBucks account here and get 30 SwagBucks as a new account!, (enter BIGTIMEBUCKS for an extra 70 bucks LAST DAY!!) its free and I like to recommend people set their homepage to Swagbucks.com. 2)Then, just search for things (I search for Google, Facebook, Gmail, and other regular things in addition to many others). You start earning points or bucks and can redeem 450 Swagbucks for a $5 Amazon Gift card!
BACK to Hubby....
I really needed him on board a LITTLE bit with these small things: time and space. For time, I needed a few hours per week to have without my little guy. Hubby is extremely gracious and gives me lots of time for my retail Savings therapy. Space--well, that is a big thing. I need somewhere to store all my amazing deals and lovely plunder! I have a few cabinets downstairs, but I'm sure he would want it organized better.
Lastly, I help hubby get what he wants. He gets to shop at the local butcher instead of a regular grocery store (grilling meat is a high priority here!) and he can choose to drink yummy beer instead of light/cheap/not-as-good-in-our-opinion-beer.
