There are lots and lots of money-saving blogs out there. Many of them are very good, complete, understandable, and have great tips. I had quite a collection I was subscribed to (and I still do!) but I was finding myself needing to sift through the deals listed to find the deals that applied to me. I don't have any Publix, Safeways, Food Lions, Rite Aids, or many of the other drug store & grocery stores highlighted on the blogs.
Also, did you know in markets other than Indianapolis and Chicago, Meijer runs their sales Sunday-Saturday rather than Thursday-Wednesday? At least a few times, I showed up at Meijer with coupons in hand after reading about "this week's deals" on Monday, only to discover the sales don't start here until Thursday! Annoying!
Then someone passed along a tip on Twitter: The best money saving blogs for you are the ones that are local to you. I was skeptical, but did a quick search, and have found high-quality frugality blogs in my area! That list sales and coupon match-ups that actually apply to me! WHEN they apply to me!
For those of you in Central Indiana, here's a list of some I've been checking lately:
IN Good Cents
Queen of Free
Any other Indiana couponing/frugal blogs you there I should add to my list? If you're not in the Indy area, how do you find local deals? Do you "read local"?
