Sure there are great sites for finding coupon deals (ahem…this one of course!) but sometimes saving money on groceries just isn’t enough. You need other sites to help you get organized, or learn new ideas, or track expenses. There are plenty of websites, books and software to help you learn all sorts of neat tricks, but who wants to pay for that information or those services when they are available for free? Here’s a list of the best Frugal Friendly sites and resources that are completely FREE to use!
If you’re looking for the best way to follow your favorite deal bloggers, like An Exercise In Frugality, and share those deals with your friends, ReclipIt is the place to go. It’s a website where you can “clip” deals to your folders to remember for later, and share those folders with your followers. If you haven’t already done so, you can Sign up for ReclipIt here.
If you’ve always wanted to try Quicken or some other fancy software to track your expenses, but the price tag has put those plans on hold (why pay money to track your budget? Hellooooo counter-intuitive!) then have no fear! Head on over to Manilla
where you can use their secure website to input, track, pay and view all your bills at home and from your smartphone. Even more exciting is that once you input your bills/utilities/etc, you only have to remember ONE user id and password! Hallelujah for simplifying! Don’t worry about security- Manilla has won several Webby awards and a People’s Voice Award! Click HERE to sign up for Manilla today!
If you’re like me, you want to know if your coupon work is worth your time. Sure you can create a fancy schmancy spreadsheet, but if you’re a ding dong when it comes to Excel (like I am!) then you need someone to do all the hard computing for you. Check out Coupon Record
, where all you have to do is input what you spent, and what you saved on each trip, and it does the math, tells you your percent saved, and creates pretty charts and graphs and your total amount saved year to date in a nice big number that makes you feel all warm and frugally fuzzy inside. It even gives you a link to your dashboard so you can show off to your friends and family how much you have saved!
