If you’re just joining me for the first time from Fox, welcome to the world of deals and bargains! My name is Clair and I’m a Frugal Mummy originally hailing from England who’s now living in the Chicagoland area (I’ve been here 10 years). I’m a wife to Tim and Mummy to 1-year old Isaac. About 6 months ago I got diapers for 20 cents a pack and when I shocked my friends I decided I needed to teach others how to do it. Besides, it’s free therapy!! I love my little man but I’m a stay at home Mum and blogging keeps me sane some days!
I love writing about bargains I find, like free stuff at CVS or Walgreens, or great deals on makeup. One recent find was 3 bags of coffee for only $3 or when I found Kraft cheese from Jewel at 7 for $1! Whenever I spot a deal I get giddy and love sharing it here. I cover national and local deals and we’ve always got tons of fun going on. Most of the time I have the ads for CVS, Walgreens and Meijer up before they even hit the Sunday papers!
Besides that, I love writing about how to save money on things like making your own hand soap, or how to be a savvy shopper. I’ve also got some ways to make a little money on the internet through doing simple surveys. Oh, and then there’s Granny’s Deals which are all the freebies I can find online and round up for you. As I like to say, “Cheap is great but free is better!”
Every day I spotlight the latest freebies and deals and feature them here. If you don’t want to miss anything, sign up for a daily spam-free email from me by putting your address in the box in the left column.
I’m glad you’re here so pull up a seat, grab a cup of tea and let’s start saving those hard earned dollars!
