Just to Tide You Over

Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to give you an update. My little fingers are typing themselves to death but things are moving along on the new pages. In the mean time I just wanted to remind you that you still can get lots of info on great deals, news, etc. on Facebook, Twitter and blogfrog. If you’re already on blogfrog, after you add me be sure to add the It Makes Cents to Me! community where you can join in and be a part of discussions about things related to It Makes Cents to Me! and its content!

Again, while I’m not posting tons of stuff here, I’m posting (almost) daily deals by the handful on Facebook and Twitter and the feed goes to blogfrog too!

Thanks for checking back!

Proof that Coupons are SOOO Worth it!

Do I have a whopper of a shopping trip re-cap for you! Unfortunately, today was the last day of the sale so you won’t be able to go out and do the same but I still wanted to share this with you for those of you who have doubts about whether coupons are really worth it.

Here’s the run down!

What I Bought:

Find out how I did it by clicking the ‘read more’ button.

New Sections Coming Soon!

I just wanted to let everyone know that while posts are never really ‘regular’ on here they will continue to be sporadic for the time being. However, it’s for good reason. I’m happy to announce that I will be working on coupon tutorial pages! They’ll be the basics of couponing and possibly some more advanced stuff. But let’s face it, that’s one of the easiest ways to cut that grocery bill in half and so I’m going to devote an entire section to couponing and shopping sales! In the mean time, please be patient with me. I’ll be working on them and putting them up as quickly as I can but since this will be more than just a simple post I’m going to devote some extra time to them.

In the mean time, if there is a specific topic you’d like to hear about or a question you’d like an answer to I’d love to hear from you! You can post it in the comments section below or email me at I’d also really appreciate you spreading the word about It Makes Cents to Me! with your friends, family, co-workers, fellow church goers, random people at the grocery store or just anyone who could benefit from the content here or is looking to keep a little more of their family’s income in their own pockets.

Last, but certainly not least, I’m also happy to announce that you can now find It Makes Cents to Me! on Facebook and Twitter! Again, for now, posts will be sporadic as this is a one woman operation for the time being, but I’ll do my best to get everything done in a timely matter. I truly appreciate your support and patience!

God Bless,
