Hi <<First Name>>

We’ve got so many great deals coming your way, our heads are spinning.

We took a day off and got out of the heat last weekend. We spent the day in the Prescott mountains outside of Phoenix.
A friend was hosting a company picnic so we stopped by and won a wine basket (we’ll use the wine for cooking) and got a free caricature by a local artist. We spent some time in the town square relaxing. And then we went thrift store shopping and found some great deals.

Saving on Back-to-School Supplies


The late summer months are the best time to stock-up and save money on Back to School Supplies. 

Unfortunately, if you’re not careful, this can be one of the most expensive times of the year for families with young children. Why?

The reason is that back-to-school costs can really take a toll on your family’s household budget.

According to the National Retail Federation, retailers expect that consumers will shell out more than $80.7 billion during this back-to-school shopping frenzy (k-12 and college combined).

  If you follow these 5 tips you’ll save a ton on your back to school supplies this year.

Finding the Cheapest Places to Buy Meat


Are you looking to save money and find cheap meat near your home? These strategies could save you thousands of dollars this year. 

Years ago, it was the man’s “job” to hunt for the meat to provide for the family. 

All it cost was a few days’ trudging through the forest, and some bullets or arrows. Then there was time to clean and dress the meat, a man’s muscles to lug it all home and space to store it.

Today, in our more “sophisticated” society, both sexes are responsible for putting meat on the table. The chore isn’t quite as physically taxing. But to do it economically, you still need good tracking skills, a place to store your prize catches, and the ability to know when to “pull the trigger” and buy.
