Calling All My Penny-Pinching Friends...

So, you all know how extremely cheap frugal I can be and how I always go the extra mile to save a buck.  I give at-home haircuts to all my boys, I use the grocery store's sale flyer to plan my menu for the week, I never buy soft drinks at the drive-thru, I never purchase anything that's full price, I shop around at several different places to find the best deal, and I clip coupons from the Sunday paper.

When I was down with a sprained ankle during the Christmas shopping season, I ended up doing the majority of my shopping online.  But paying for shipping was something I avoided at all cost.  So I got the bright idea to search for coupon codes online.  Most of the time, that ended up working great.  But occasionally, I would stumble upon a scam website that wanted you to register your bank account number and promise your firstborn child's soul to them.  Not really, but I got a very uneasy feeling from some of the sites.  And then there were sites like this one, http://www.couponchief.com/ that made me feel very comfortable.  You don't have to click on anything to reveal the coupon code.  It's listed right in plain sight.  You don't have to register your blood type and mother's maiden name.  You just search for the site where you're shopping and it will show you all the coupons available.  During Christmas, I saved tons of money with free shipping codes, 25% off codes, and $10 off a $50 purchase codes.  You can't beat that!  I ended up spending much less than I would have it I had shopped in stores.

So for the extra twelve seconds it takes to find a code on couponchief.com, you could save yourself a pretty penny!  I suggest trying it out next time you're online shopping!  Let me know what you think!
