Get Frugal This Spring! 4.5.11



It’s Spring and, even though it’s not really believable here in the Northwest, I am ready for some new beginnings. I’m pulling out and wearing all my Spring and Summer shoes, got a brand new hair style and cut, doing a bit of gardening and looking at new ways to save! I’m still saving on travel, but for all those things that aren’t travel-related that I might not always know about, I turn to the awesome members and community leaders in the Frugal Living Community at BlogFrog that is sponsored by Ebates.

My awesome new wedges from Shoedazzle!
No more curls!
They really know their stuff! From couponing to great fashion finds, you can seriously learn how to save on almost anything. Start a new discussion (if you’re curious about the answer to something or want to get some outside perspective) or join in current ones. Joining BlogFrog is free and you can participate as much or as little as you want. Follow me, too! I have my own Shereen Travels Cheap community and I’m also a Frugal Living community leader, giving out advice, helping others find ways to travel on a budget and getting people excited about traveling, too!

Make joining the Frugal Living Community YOUR new beginning this Spring. Almost every week there is a live chat on various topics. I hosted one on Spring Travel and will do another one soon on a different travel topic. This week, there was one on frugal landscaping and on Thursday at 5pm PST there will be one on Spring organization (for all of you looking forward to Spring Cleaning!).




Why join BlogFrog and the Frugal Living Community? Besides learning about new ways to save and get the most out of your budget, you can also find new blogs to follow, make new friends, tell people about your own blog (if you have one) and win fun prizes! My fellow community leaders are always giving something away on their blogs or within a live chat to participants. That’s pretty awesome, right?

You can even learn how to make the most of your Ebates membership. Don’t have one yet? What are you waiting for? There’s no better way to save money on things you buy online than with the Ebates cash back rewards program. You sign up for free, use their links (and awesome coupon codes) to go to a participating merchant – of which there are many – and get cash back for your entire purchase! Ebates sends out rebates quarterly, which you can ask to be sent to you by mailed check or via Paypal (my personal favorite, because it’s FAST!). You don’t even have to do anything beside use the link, buy your stuff and make sure you use the same email address you used to sign up for Ebates. Super duper easy! Trust me: You’re LOSING money by not having an account!

Aside from free money, you can make even more money and win prizes by referring friends to sign up and buy. Does an iPad sound cool? Or cash? Yeah, I thought so. Plus, Ebates gives you $5 just for signing up!
