Thrifty Tip Tuesday

Can we ever have enough money-saving tips? Of course not! I recently discovered "Thrifty Tip Tuesday" over at "I Am a Money Magnet." Here's the link:

My tip today is one I've blogged before, but it is worth repeating. A great way to save money is to shop the 'after holidays' clearance sales. I'm speaking particulary of after Passover sales. I'm not Jewish but I always check the special aisle when Passover is done. You can get some great buys on quality items like good vanilla or cake mix or canned pineapple. One year I even got a set of storage containers really cheap. What is Kosher about storage containers? Well, they have different colored lids so you don't mix things together that shouldn't be mixed according to Jewish law.

Of course, there will be Easter items on sale, too. But it's only a few days past Easter and I try to save at least 75%.

Go over to the above link and check out the blog. It's a good one!
