*Links to Blogs to look for weekly deals/grocery lists
Follow blogs easier using Google Reader (www.google.com/reader). Using your Google account (or create a new one), you can type in all the blogs that you want to follow (or watch) on a daily or weekly basis. This site will display all the blog posts from the blogs you choose on one page beginning with the most recently updated posts. Scroll down until you find something that interests you and click it to go that site.

If you are shoppping online, sign in with your Ebates account and then click on the Store you want to buy from (example Macy's) so that you can receive a percentage cash back. This is usually between 2%-8% back. Creat an account here.
Through the UPROMISE program, you can link all your grocery cards, and your credit card if you wish, so that you can get a percentage back on purchases you make. There are also eCoupons you can add and use through any of your grocery cards. The savings on the coupons go to your Upromise account. You can also install the Upromise toolbar at the top of your internet browser so that, just like ebates, you can earn money when shopping online. You can shop through Ebates and Upromise and get rewards for both at the same time! You can put the savings into a College Saving Fund for the future, or just request a check for now.
*Amazon Mom: Join this program which gives you discounts on baby items on Amazon as well as free shipping for 3 months! Join here. (They also have an Amazon student program for college students with a .edu email address)
*Magazines: Usually I just wait until a new offer comes up on a blog I am following and then click through that link, but you can go straight to Mercury Magazines and sign up and you will be emailed offers for free magazine subscriptions. (Past subscriptions I have gotten for myself or family members: Woman's Day, Better Homes and Gardens, Women's Health, Golf World, SaltWater Sportsman, Woodworking etc) They NEVER ask for your credit card info, send you a bill, or spam you. It is totally free!
*Store Coupon Policies
* There is a clothing website called Shop it To Me that alerts you of sales on specific brands that you choose for your account. This would be nice if there is a specific brand/store that you typically buy from.
