I signed up with my email address for some of those group-buying coupon places that send you a deal a day (50% to 80% off local restaurants, spas, all kinds of stuff!), and I've made some awesome purchases for rewards and gift-giving! 99 bucks for 6 sessions of laser hair removal, for example! :)
The trick is to only buy the REALLY good deals where it's something you were budgeting for anyway, otherwise the coupons can really lure you in. Try GROUPON, LIVINGSOCIAL, etc.
It's usually one deal per day, and you can only buy a limited number of vouchers. I've even got myself some personal training sessions for CHEAP! And a ten dollar spa day is SUCH a fabulous reward that doesn't cost too much ... :)
Just google "Daily Deals + your city" for deals near you!

my neighbors and i have kids that are different ages and sizes. i have one nieghbor who pases clothes to me and i go through them. Then i pass on to my other nieghbor what is to big for my kids. and then when her kids grow out of them she passes them to me and then when my kids grow out of them she pases them on to her sister who has a child smaller than mine. I am a big freecycler i can offer things to people that we dont need and get things that we need all for free
when you have five kids who are constantly growing it saves big bucks and theclothes that we get are always in good condition.
We save by buying in bulk. We buy big hunks of meat and I cut it up myself. I can get wonderful cuts of beef and serve for 75 cents a serving. Also get the big things of veggies, make your own frozen veggies and save big time. One bag of brocelli 3 bucks, gets me 20 servings!!
