Read Sale Advertisements

My MIL is frugal shopper extraordinaire. She scours the advertisements to keep her eyes out for coupons and special deals. Thanks to her, we now have a pantry full of cake mix. And it cost a whoppin: $0!

One ad showed Safeway was having a baking sale, where if you bought ten of a particular list of items, you'd get $10 off. Elsewhere, she saw that cake mix - which was one of the special items - was on sale 10 for $10.

So, we multi-tasked and went on our morning walk IN Safeway, and helped them give away their cake mix. "It would be irresponsible to just leave them there," MIL said. Certainly!
