Amazon Mom - save 30% on diaper and wipes!

Amazon Mom is a free membership program for moms, dads, and other caregivers. You can get diapers and wipes for 30% off with Subscribe & Save.
They will also periodically offer exclusive discounts and special offers for Amazon Mom members.

It is by far the cheapest and easiest way I have found to get name-brand diapers and baby wipes. I think it is even cheaper than off-brand diapers. (I haven't price compared recently, but it's worth checking.)

For example, you can get a case of Pampers Swaddlers
84 size newborn swaddlers are only $13 ($0.16 per diaper)
216 size 1 swaddlers for only $28 ($0.13 per diaper)

Pampers Sensitive Wipes
pack of four, 192 count wipes (768 wipes total) $17 ($0.02 a wipe)

And if you have any of the Amazon diaper coupons (from parenting magazines like American Baby, Parenting, Parents, etc), it's even better prices - really unbeatable prices.

Easy Ways to Earn Money Online - doing the things you already do!

There are several ways to earn money online without going to any extra effort. It may only be a dollar here and a dollar there, but it all adds up!

Do you shop online? Go through Ebates and earn a percentage back! They also often have coupon codes available for many stores. The money earned is paid out every 3 months by check or through paypal. Go through that link and get started with a free $5 in your account!

Swagbucks has several ways to earn "bucks" that can be redeemed for gift cards and various merchandise. The easiest way is to just use their search engine. You can earn additional points by completing offers (some are free, others are not, just read the fine print), answering a daily poll, referring friends, and much more. Check it out! Go through my link and get started with 30 free Swagbucks!

MyPoints is another easy way to earn points that can be redeemed for gift cards. You can earn by shopping through My Points, through receiving their emails and clicking a link, through searching, and more. Check out the site. If you would like to join, please let me refer you. (I cannot post a referral link here, but can email you an invitation to join.)

There are also several survey sites that you can earn points and eventually earn money. I've found the above ways to be easier/more practical/less time consuming, and I'm therefore a lot more likely to stick with them. But for those with more patience than me, here are some survey sites:
Opinion Outpost
Global Test Market
Harris Poll

Another Thrifty Blog???

Welcome!  My name is Shannon.  I'm a stay at home mom that tries to stretch our budget and loves to share deals with others.  

I often joke that I don't pay full price for anything except socks and underwear!  (And even then, only when necessary.)

I know a lot of thrifty blogs exist, but I hope to share some other helpful info besides just great deals.

I'll be providing links to printable coupon sites.  I'll post links to homemade household cleaners.

I'll also provide links and information on budgeting.  I'm a huge Dave Ramsey fan and also a fan of Mint, a free online budgeting tool. If you decide to sign up with Mint, be sure to go through Swagbucks and earn 28 free swagbucks! (Look under Special Offers - Super Rewards)
