How to become an extreme couponer - the frugal millionaire
Stacking is the act of finding multiple coupons and discounts that can be combined to produce significant savings.

How to Save a Lot of Money - the frugal millionaire
Sub-accounts! We put money into a car fund, an HVAC fund, vacation fund, savings, etc. I also bank the money we save for things like grocery stores, sales, coupons, cash back shopping, etc. Plus an automatic $92 that we save with Hulu each month. When I keep on it, we generally save around $200 each month just in that account.
How to Save Money on Food without Sacrificing Quality
And when you do go out to a nice restaurant, split a meal with your husband or your child! This is a really easy way to shave $5-$10 off the total cost of the meal. And with portion sizes nowadays, you’ll still be leaving the restaurant with a full belly. Cook in bulk for the week

The way we’re getting around this is simple – we are paying the credit card off daily. So, in other words, if we can’t pay it our purchases off that day, we aren’t buying them. It’ll basically be the same as using our debit cards, except we’ll be earning cash back on every single purchase.
Online Income Report: How I Made $3,200 Online in One
I am so, so excited about this month's online income report! This is my highest month ever, including the two years I freelanced and blogged only (I currently have a FT job in addition to freelancing and blogging).

How to clean a big house // My schedule - the frugal
Currently, we are living in a 3000 square foot rental home. To some that may be average, but to us this house is quite large. In fact, it's the biggest house my husband and I have ever lived in. I was nervous moving in thinking about what it would be like to clean the house. Since we've lived here almost two months now, I thought it would be interesting to share my cleaning schedule. It

So off I went to Kirkland’s to stock up on a few essentials. I spent $48 (including my $10 off coupon) on the items you see on the fireplace mantle – the “Be Thankful” banner, two ceramic pumpkins, a “Harvest Home” sign, a burlap white floral arrangement, a festive light-up mason jar and a vanilla-scented candle on an antique candle

Going out to eat is spending $15 at the local BBQ restaurant to feed all four of us! We love cooking at home, going on walks and to the library, watching movies, playing cards, reading and more.
